Graviola is getting more and more popular nowadays as a result of its health benefits. Namely, apart from its innumerate health benefits, it is also reported to have “powerful effects at stopping cancer.”
Found in South America in the Amazon river basin, the Graviola tree is usually about 15-30 feet tall but packs a strong nutritional punch. The fruit is delicious, with custard-like texture, and a striking “spiked lemon” like appearance. Amazon natives used Graviola leaves and bark to prepare tea, which was used for treating liver problems, arthritis and diabetes.
Graviola, also known as soursop, is believed to be “10,000 times stronger than chemotherapy” at killing cancerous cells, which basically positions it as the answer to one of the most devastating diseases of this era.
According to certain government agencies, Graviola offers a variety of benefits for protecting and improving the body health. It is rich in vitamins and minerals and also in many nutrients which have healthy benefits on our body.
HERE ARE SOME OF THE HEALTH BENEFITS THAT GRAVIOLA HAS ON OUR BODY:
- It stimulates the blood circulation within the body
- It protects the immune system, and prevents from deadly infections
- It has antioxidant properties
- It acts protective against aging
- It assists in draining the lymphatic system
- It boosts vital energy and positive attitude toward life
GRAVIOLA AND ANTI-CANCER STUDIES
Graviola is still at the beginning of many different examinations and researches. According to the FDA, the studies are done on malignancy cells in test tubes and not in clinical trial. The biggest and most comprehensive study on the anti-cancer effects of Graviola comes from the Purdue University’s School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences.
The university spent millions on researching Graviola (and other plants for their anti-cancer effects including a similar one, the pawpaw, which actually has more of those compounds) and eventually found out some promising news: the compounds were shown to be powerful at inhibiting the growth of cancer cells, while remarkably leaving normal cells along. These compounds from Graviola were also found to work against drug-resistant cancer cells as well.
Unfortunately, there are no long-term human studies on Graviola for cancer and other diseases it is believed to be effective against.
It should be noted that if you do plan to use Graviola, it is a powerful natural medicine and you should consult with a doctor first.
