Guava is a traditional remedy for a range of health conditions. research suggests that guava fruits and leaves may have a number of benefits.

adverse effects and risks
a 2017 review of research into guava did not highlight any notable adverse effects of eating guava fruit, consuming guava leaf tea, or taking guava leaf extract supplements.
however, there is not enough evidence to rule out the possibility. any remedies or supplements that do not have food and drug administration (fda) approval may cause adverse effects.
anyone who is pregnant or breastfeeding should consult a doctor before taking guava leaf extract.
