Rose apples have nothing to do with apples or roses. They are a fruit that grows in sub-tropic climates in Southeast Asia. But, it can easily be found in the wild since it grows in many regions.

That is why people consider rose apples to be quite an invasive species. This particular fruit looks like guava. But, it has fewer seeds. Moreover, it smells and tastes differently. People love eating this fruit because it is incredibly juicy.

It is 96 percent water and 0 calories. No wonder why people love it so much.

Rose Apples and Diabetes

According to research, Jambosine is an alkaloid that could potentially help regulate or block the conversion of starch into sugar. This might be extremely helpful for those with unstable blood sugar.

Moreover, the research shows that this alkaloid can help the body regulate blood pressure levels as well. In other words, rose apples could be beneficial for keeping the blood pressure and blood sugar levels in check.

However, we suggest consulting with a doctor or nutritionist first, especially for those who are on medications. Remember, everyone’s body may react differently to a certain change.
