Adults should take one glass thrice a day.
Children from six months and above should be given in smaller doses depending on age.
Pregnant and Breastfeeding Mothers#
– Guava leaves are good for all including pregnant and breastfeeding mothers. But for pregnant mothers, the doses should be reduced by half, that is, about 4 to 5 younger and fresh leaves prepared with a litre of water. I am conscious that, there are many researchers who say the leaves are completely not good for pregnant women. But from practical experience, I recommend minimum doses for pregnant women. These minimum doses are beneficial to them. Nb: The problem here is the dose and not the leaf…For example, honey is good and beneficial to pregnant women, but higher doses will cause abortions. Same goes for potent plants like guava leaves and a host of others… There’s no proven evidence that they are harmful to babies through mothers’ milk but mere assumptions. I read what others publish too, then compare with my long time practical experience before concluding…
– It may give a headache when taken in very high doses.
– It may cause excessive menstrual bleeding in some women.
We thank the Omnipotent and Omniscient Creator for all his blessing of a life of which Guava is one of them.
SHARE and blessed someone today.
God bless you.
