A delicious tropical fruit found natively in Hawaii, Guavas are high in fiber and contain up to five times as much vitamin C as an orange. Guavas are the best fruit source of lycopene, one of the world’s most powerful phytonutrients. Studies have shown that this antioxidant helps prevent the growth of tumors, especially in the lungs and breasts. New research is beginning to suggest they may also play a role in preventing prostate cancer. Containing much more dietary fiber than an apple or banana, guavas can prevent high cholesterol, heart disease, and type 2 diabetes.
