Health is one of the topics that most arouses the interest of millions of people who, in a sense, are constantly looking for recommendations and advice that will allow them to “stop” the appearance and progression of diseases.
That’s why the recommendations are also accompanied by the famous testimonials in which other people reveal the tricks and home remedies that have helped them alleviate symptoms, relieve discomfort or simply “cope” with illnesses.
Among a long list of tips, certain foods and powerful drinks stand out because they provide multiple benefits. This is the case with guava, which is widely known to lower blood pressure.
Before we delve into the effects of consuming guava, it is important to say that blood pressure is understood as a measure of the force exerted on the walls of the arteries when the heart pumps blood into the human body. This was explained on the website of the health information service Medline Plus.
If it is suspected that blood pressure may be abnormal, a healthcare professional will order close monitoring. For this reason, the patient’s pressure must be measured by measurements consisting of two numbers.
Well, when it comes to ways to control blood pressure naturally, it is important to mention that these are not “magic” recommendations either, since one must take into account medical indications and strictly adhere to taking the medications prescribed by the doctor.
Among the home remedies, a “superfruit” stands out that has surely accompanied you throughout your life, especially during your lunch break. It is the guava, one of the most complete tropical fruits since it contains many nutrients and is rich in phosphorus, potassium, copper, magnesium, niacin, iron, calcium and folic acid, as explains the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development of Mexico.
This fruit can be consumed in different ways, but the most interesting thing is that it offers several benefits such as the ability to regulate blood pressure. As stated on the digital portal “Tua Saúde”, “it promotes the relaxation of blood vessels and improves vascular function.”
It is worth mentioning that guava can also relieve menstrual cramps, prevent anemia and cancer, among other things. This does not mean that it is a substitute for medical treatments. What it does mean, however, is that it is an excellent source of benefits as it has digestive, hypoglycemic, anti-cancer, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, among others.
