Presence of phytochemicals in fruits and leaves of guava (Psidium guajava Linn.) for cancer prevention: A mini review
The present review deals with the bioactive compounds (phytochemicals) in the fruits and leaves of guava (Psidium guajava Linn.). In the present study, an attempt was done to survey of literatures for exact solvent extraction to know exact phytocompound and characterization by using instruments along with anticancer properties of these phytochemicals present in fruits and leaves of guava. The compilation of available literatures of last 10 years can be suitable ready references for future experimental study as in vitro and in vivo as well as new drug design as phytomedicines for cancer therapy.
