    My grandma always told us to use guava leaves to get rid of gum problems. But I didn't have any idea that it's also useful for curing many other ailments as you said.

    It’s widely accepted that consumption of guava is very good for our health. Guava is a rich source of vitamin C more than other fruits like, orange, banana, mango, pineapple and papaya. It contains 10-30 times more vitamin ‘C’ than bananas, 10 times more than papayas. I’ve found the above information from http://www.ocf.berkeley.edu/
