Hypertension (“high blood pressure”) is a condition where the measured force of the blood against the walls of arteries is too high. It is a long-time medical condition, wherein the blood pressure in the arteries is persistently raised, but what makes it dangerous is that a person may have high blood pressure for years together without any visible symptoms of the condition.

Long-term elevated high blood pressure, or hypertension, may result in a number of health complications like coronary artery disease, stroke, chronic kidney disease and even heart failure.

Hypertension can be medically diagnosed, and is largely treatable through medication and by switching to a healthy lifestyle and a healthy diet. One of the fruits that is said to be healthy for hypertension patients is guava.

Native to Mexico and some parts of America, the tropical fruit has wide ranging culinary uses and has some incredible health benefits as well. It is particularly healthy for people who are at risk of heart diseases, including hypertension patients.

An article on ndtv.com states that guava can be helpful in managing hypertension.

Diets low in potassium may increase a risk of developing hypertension, stroke and other cardiovascular diseases. Increasing your potassium intake may help regulate blood pressure. Guava is a fruit that is incredibly rich in potassium. According to the United States Department of Agriculture, a 100 gram serving of guava contains 417mg of potassium; roughly 9 percent of the daily dietary allowances as per the US guidelines. Apart from this, guava also contains high levels of antioxidants in the form of carotenoids and polyphenols, which may protect the heart from free radical damage.
