It aids in good sleep and boosts memory and an excellent remedy for seasonal cough and cold.

Guava is considered one of the healthiest fruit because it has proven positive effects on our body’s numerous functions. Right from strengthening our immune system to regulating a healthy and ideal blood pressure, Guava provides a number of health benefits.
