You've all heard of the saying, 'An apple a day keeps a doctor away'. But what if we told you that a guava can come to your rescue too? More than 25% of adults in the UK suffer from hypertension. It can be caused due to high blood pressure which in turn can lead to serious health issues like heart attacks and strokes. A study has now found that by eating one guava daily, you could keep your blood pressure in check. If you want to avoid medication, the one thing you must alter to keep your blood pressure under control is to alter your diet.
A physician, Dr David Williams said that if you eat the fruit every day before a meal, you could reduce your blood pressure by 9/8mmHg. “Combined with appropriate lifestyle changes and targeted nutritional support, changing your diet can not only reduce your blood pressure numbers, but significantly improve your overall cardiovascular health," the doctor said. The fruit is said to have such miraculous properties that it can even keep diabetes at bay.
So, if you're looking to keep your health in check, start by altering your diet and your lifestyle. Try including guavas in your diet and see if that works well for you.
