Guava, aside from the sweetness, also serves as an immune booster ranging from distressing, fighting diabetes, to weight gain. Did you know that it can also boost fertility? This superfood works wonders in boosting fertility in men and improving ovulation, menstruation and pregnancy in women.

As a lady, if you have a regular monthly period, there’s a good chance you’re fertile. While it is true that women have a limited number of eggs, infertility is mostly caused by other factors. Many women suffer from dysmenorrhea (painful menstrual symptoms such as stomach cramps). There is some evidence, however, that guava leaf extract can reduce the intensity of menstrual cramps. Primary dysmenorrhea refers to period cramps caused by normal prostaglandin activity.

Guava leaves are a great source of fertility-boosting nutrients which are rich in vitamin C, calcium, vitamin B2, niacin vitamin E, and magnesium. Guava leaves include a high content of folic acid known as vitamin B9.

First, pluck and wash the leaves to clean them. Pour water into a pot and allow it to boil. Then pour the leaves into water and boil them for a few minutes until the water becomes greenish or brownish. Remove the pot from the fire and sieve the liquid. Now drink a cup first thing in the morning before you eat and the last thing before you sleep at night. It is normally bitter, but don’t worry.

Note: Men can drink it too but you have to add ginger and a little honey to it for taste.
