Ethnoveterinary medicine include people's indigenous knowledge, skills, methods, practises, and beliefs about caring for themselves. The use of medicinal plants to cure illnesses is an established practise in underdeveloped nations where traditional medicine is used to preserve human health. Guava (Psidium guajava Linn.) is well-known for its culinary and dietary benefits all over the world. Traditional systems of medicine are also aware of the therapeutic benefits of guava fruit, leaf, and other plant components. A range of plant-derived compounds, including quercetin, guaijaverin, isoflavonoids, gallic acid, catechin, epicathechin, rutin, naringenin, kaempferol flavonoids, and galactose-specific lecithins, have demonstrated potential action. Since the guava tree has economic value in every area, it is cultivated on a large scale. Guava fruit is referred to as the "poor man's apple of the tropics" because of the biological activity and therapeutic applications of the guava plant. Parts of the guava plant are utilised to create a range of commercial and medicinal goods. The nutritional value of guava fruit and the therapeutic characteristics of its many components have been examined in this study to give a comprehensive overview of its diverse commercial values.
