Basic Information:

Syzygium aqueum is a species of brush cherry tree. Its common names include watery rose apple;[2] names like “water apple” and “bell fruit” may refer to any species of Syzygium grown for its fruit.[citation needed]

The tree is cultivated for its wood and edible fruit. The fruit is a fleshy yellow or red berry which is bell shaped, waxy and crisp.

Syzygium aqueum is native to Malesia, New Guinea and Queensland.[1] The tree requires heavy rainfalls and can survive in tropical habitats, up to 1600m from sea level.[3] In the Philippines, it is locally known as tambis and is often confused with macopa (Syzygium samarangense).[4]

The wood is hard and can be used to make tools. The bark of the tree is sometimes used in herbal medicines. It is grown in orchards and gardens and parks as an ornamental plant. The leaves are edible and are sometimes used to wrap food.

The fruit has a very mild and slightly sweet taste similar to apples, and a crisp watery texture like the inside of a watermelon. It is a staple of Southeast Asian fruit stands, where it is inexpensive while in season. It does not bruise easily and may be preserved for months in a household refrigerator.

Aside from being an infectious drug, guava also contains potassium mineral which is claimed to be effective in preventing or overcoming muscle problems, such as cramps. Many studies suggest that muscle cramps often result from a lack of potassium intake into the body.

Therefore, consumption of guava water containing potassium is high enough to prevent and even treat cramps that occur in your muscles. Consume guava regularly, so if you have heavy work you can move safely.

The point is that guava is very well known to have properties that can reduce levels of bad cholesterol (LDL) and increase levels of good cholesterol (HDL). The fiber in guava that is consumed regularly is able to control cholesterol levels so that it is not excessive.

This can help prevent cardiovascular disease, namely stroke and heart disease. Meanwhile, niacin content in guava can increase HDL fat levels and reduce triglyceride levels (fats commonly found in the blood).

6. Maintaining the Digestive System

The fiber content plays an important role related to the health of the digestive system. Many studies have shown that lack of fiber can be a trigger for the emergence of various digestive system diseases ranging from constipation or constipation, to intestinal problems.

But when consuming guava water also do not be too much, because it can cause stomach pain, even diarrhea. Eat enough and should not be eaten before eating heavy food. Wash thoroughly so that germs do not interfere with your digestion. (Ossid Duha Jussas Salma)
