Even in ancient days, Graviola has already been recognized as a plant with medicinal properties. Studies today have proven that graviola is also beneficial as an alternative remedy for cancer. Studies are continuously being conducted to get more information about the healing power of the graviola plant.
The active compounds and chemical in the graviola plant were shown to have anti-tumor properties which are selective against tumor cells. Aside from this, it has been shown that graviola has anticancerous, antitumours, and antiviral properties.
With graviola, enzyme processes in cancerous cells are inhibited by its natural compounds. They are toxic for cancerous cells but not in healthy cells. Even the stem and leaves of the graviola plant were shown to have active toxic effects against cancer cells. The selective toxic effect is exhibited by the natural compounds in graviola against different cancer cell lines including lung, prostate, breast tumor, liver cancer, pancreatic, colon and breast cell lines. Even very low dosages of graviola compounds are highly toxic to ovarian, breast, cervical, bladder, and skin cancer cells.
Compounds in the graviola herb also exhibit antiparasitic, insecticidal, and antimicrobial activities. The leaves of graviola is an effective radical scavenger because of its antioxidant properties.
Cancer is present in a lot of people today because of deficiencies in nutrition and antioxidants which compromises the immune system. This leads to the body’s inability to fight off free radicals that allow cells to mutate to cancer cells. Radiation or chemotherapy treatment may slow down cancer and allow remission, but the cancer is not eliminated and so it is not cured.
There are many reasons why mainstream medical establishments have not accepted the finding and evidence of herbal medicines and nutritional therapies which may be far more effective against cancer. It can be profit motivated since natural medicines are far less costly than chemotherapy. Evidence has also been suppressed about the effectiveness of graviola to fight cancer.
There are still many ongoing studies being made about the graviola plant as a cancer cure, but this encourages us to know that the plant is already being used worldwide for its potential to treat our serious ailments. If you go to health stores today, you will find graviola extracts, graviola powder, and graviola supplements being sold to promote optimal health in individuals and used as a general health tonic.
Someday, all these promising new findings that can benefit human health will get a fair hearing regardless of how profitable they are to drug companies and the medical industry. Let us look forward to that day.
