Guava, Psidium guajava
Guava is a fruit tree grown in many tropical and subtropical regions. We utilize the leaves of the Guava tree, as the medicinal profile is highly valued across the world.
Guava leaf is high in antioxidants and tannins, having a special affinity to digestion. By stimulating enzyme production, digestion is supported and the active antioxidants are able to help eliminate free radicals via the GI tract. Thus, this plant is helpful in cleansing, by gently supporting the body’s natural ability to eliminate toxins.
