The medicinal properties of graviola has been recognized since the ancient days. Today, with lots of research, the graviola plant has been proven to be a cancer alternative remedy. Studies are still being conducted today to explore further 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.
In recent studies, it has been shown that natural compounds in graviola have property to inhibit the enzyme processes that are present in cancerous cells. 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. Very low dosages exhibited high toxicity particularly to ovarian, breast, cervical, bladder, and skin cancer cell lines.
Compounds in the graviola herb also exhibit antiparasitic, insecticidal, and antimicrobial activities. Graviola leaves possess antioxidant potential and is an effective radical scavenger.
Many cancers today are known to be related to nutritional and antioxidant deficiencies that result in a compromised immune system. This leads to the body’s inability to fight off free radicals that allow cells to mutate to cancer cells. although chemotherapy can help slow down cancer and allow remissions, it is not really an effective cure to it.
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. Natural medicines are less costly than chemotherapy and so they will profit less with it. They also have suppressed evidence and findings of the benefits of the graviola plant in fighting 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. You can find graviola extracts, graviola powder, and other graviola supplements available in the market today that promotes optimal health and can be taken as a general health drink.
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.
