Guava It is a tea blend of Guava fruit juice and leaves. Guava fruit juice has been documented to lower the blood sugar levels of diabetic animals and humans to normal ranges. Most of these study results come from evidence of the plant's many uses in the tropical-herbal medicine system. The guava leaves contain quercetin (a flavonoid) which demonstrates anti-bacterial activity. Quercetin is known to contribute to the anti-diarrhea effect of guava; it is able to relax intestinal smooth muscles and lessen bowel contractions. In addition,the lectin chemical in guava was shown to bind E-coli, a common diarrhea causing organism, preventing adhesion to the intestinal wall and thus preventing infection (in diarrhea). In a recent study with guinea pigs (conducted in 2003), Brazilian researches show that guava leaf extracts have numerous beneficial effects on the body.
