A Clinically Proven Miracle Herb
Graviola is an exciting new remedy for cancer. Its medicinal properties have been recognized for centuries by the native population of the Amazon. Graviola research has been ongoing since the 1940s.
The anti-cancer benefits of graviola have been demonstrated in various studies and because of its traditional usage it is touted as a cancer-fighting herbal supplement. Graviola’s leaves, bark, seeds and fruit possess health-promoting properties that can be helpful for variety of health concerns.
Graviola contains active healing compounds and properties, such as natural phytochemicals known as annonaceous acetogenins which has been the main focus of researchers. Some researches have confirmed that annonaceous acetogenins has potent anti-tumor properties and exhibit selective toxic property against tumor cells. Other clinical studies also demonstrated the powerful anticancerous, antitumorous, and antiviral properties of annonaceous acetogenins.
Recent studies have found that natural compounds of graviola, acetogenins have superb property to inhibit the enzyme processes that are present in the membrane of cancerous cells. Through this mechanism they are toxic for cancerous cells but don’t create toxicity in healthy cells.
The National Cancer Institute has also explored the toxic effects of graviola on cancerous cells in its plant screening program in 1976. In this plant screening program, it was illustrated that graviola stem and leaves demonstrated active toxic effects against cancer cells. In various vitro clinical trials, it was observed that specific phytochemical acetogenins found in graviola, have demonstrated their selective toxic effects against various cancerous cells like lung carcinoma cell lines, prostate adenocarcinoma, breast tumor lines, liver cancer cell lines, pancreatic carcinoma cell lines, colon adenocarcinoma cell lines and multi-drug resistant breast adenocarcinoma.
Other clinical findings conducted by scientists in Taiwan suggested that at very low dosages, annonaceous acetogenins of graviola exhibited highly toxic effects particularly to ovarian, breast, cervical, bladder and skin cancer cell lines.
Along with the anti-tumour effects of graviola, it was also discovered that the compound annonaceous acetogenins which are found in graviola herb, also exhibit antiparasitic, insecticidal, and antimicrobial activities.
The graviola (Annona muricata) leaves possess antioxidant potential and play a role as an effective free radical scavenger thus augmenting its therapeutic effects. Another clinical study on graviola also suggests that alkaloids present in graviola showed anti-depressant effects in animals.
Graviola as a cancer cure is still under investigation, but it is clearly inspiring that it is used world- wide for its potential to cure serious ailments. Graviola extracts, Graviola powder and Graviola supplements are easily available to promote optimal health and can also be taken as a general health tonic.
