Guava, Immune System Booster

When the rainy season arrives, we tend to be susceptible to various diseases such as flu, colds, even dengue fever. Why? In cold weather, we tend to spend more time indoors and close to each other, thereby facilitating the spread of the virus. In addition, there are many viruses that tend to be stronger and flourish in weather conditions with low humidity, such as rainy season.

According to the study, rainfall provides a good place for mosquitoes causing dengue fever to spawn and multiply into the adult stage. And if coupled with our weak or poorly functioning immune system, Suka-tidak-like disease will come by itself without being picked up.

If it is sick, then we realize how important the role of the immune system in charge of protecting us from various types of viruses, bacteria, and other disease-causing microorganisms. Fortunately, while it is sick, the immune system can be improved to accelerate the healing process.

One way to boosting (improve) our immune system is to consume vitamin C. This water-soluble Vitamin serves as a protector of the body's cells from the damage caused by the environment.

Vitamin C in Guava is also able to heal wounds and form scarring; Helping to grow healthy skin, tendons, ligaments, and blood vessels; and repair and maintain cartilage, bones, and teeth.

The content of vitamin C in guava fruit is even more than citrus fruit. In each 100 gram guava has at least 228 mg of vitamin C. Compare it with citrus fruits that contain only 53 mg of vitamin C in every 100 of its grin. In addition to the fruit, guava leaves and also contain a chemical substance with the effect of protecting the body's cells.

Oh yes, because vitamin C can not be made or stored by our body, it is recommended to always consume foods that contain vitamin C every day so that our bodies are healthy. Small children at least need vitamin C intake as much as 15-45 mg per day, adolescents 14-18 years require 6575 grams of vitamin C per day, and adults require 75-90 mg of vitamin C per day. The higher amount of vitamin C is required by women who are pregnant or breastfeeding and they are smokers.
