Soursop Health benefits

Soursop also known as graviola (Portuguese) guanábana (Spanish) or corossol (French) is a large, green fruit with a dull spiked surface, found mainly in Tropical regions. Soursop has been a natural healer to illnesses and diseases particularly cancer for decades. Though  its medical abilities are not widely known it should not be underestimated. The soursop benefits are not limited to but would include:

  • effective antidepressant
  • antispasmodic (prevents muscle spasms)
  • hypotensive (can lower blood pressure)
  • antibacterial
  • cardiotonic (regulates the heart)
  • vasodilator ( widen blood vessels)
  • anti-tumor
  • anti-cancerous

The miracle healing powers of soursop is not limited to the fruit. Studies have shown that other parts of the plant can also be of tremendous benefit:
  • Seeds: antiparasitic ( a natural remedy for lice)
  • Bark: lower fever
  • Leaves: speed up the healing of wounds and serves as a sedative
  • unripe soursop: aid digestion
The flower was believed to be helpful for bronchitis and cough. Problems like colitis, parasites, diarrhea, fevers, dysentery, mouth sores, hydropsy and lactogogue were treated with the soursop fruit. 

The fruit possesses tranquilizing properties. Soursop seeds were considered affective for astringent, emetic, carminative, head lice, insecticide, skin parasites, parasites, worms. 

The bark of the tree was asthma, asthenia, difficult child birth, coughs, hypertension, parasites, diabetes and as a heart tonic. It was believed to possess sedative properties.

The soursop leaf was used for a variety of different problems including arthritis and rheumatism in which the leaf is crushed mixed with olive oil and applied externally.
It relieved symptoms of bronchitis, colic cough, asthma, and asthenia and was considered potent enough to fight ulcers and infections. It took care of parasites, worms, diarrhea, dysentery, indigestion, liver problems, gall bladder disorders, nervousness, palpitation, hypertension, malaria, diabetes, edema, lactogogue, grippe, fever and various skin disorders were treated with the leaf of soursop Plant.  

The roots of the plant were specially used for diabetes and spasms and used as sedatives. As the benefits of soursop gained attention, researches were conducted, and it was discovered that the plant produces a set of phytochemicals known as the Annonaceous Acetogenins. These chemicals have powerful anticancer and antitumor properties and are hailed as a miracle for cancer patients, the biggest soursop benefit of all.

The acetogenins show powerful cytotoxity towards various kinds of cancer cells and illuminate them. Researches prove that these chemicals are much more potent than the currently use chemotherapy drugs and do not harm healthy cells like the chemotherapy drugs do causing hair loss and extreme nausea.The active cytotoxity against cancer cells found in soursop has powerful antitumor characteristics.

The Annonaceous Acetogenins are very good and effective inhibitors of enzymatic activity that is carried out in tumor or cancerous cells hence they do no harm to normal healthy cells.
Researches published by the Purdue University claimed that the acetogenins were very effective in killing tumors that showed resistance to the antitumor medication. A tumor cell needs more energy to run its functions than a normal and healthy cell. 

The acetogenins work in such a way that they block the ATP going to the tumor cell and eventually the cell is unable to sustain its functions and dies away. So far 14 different strains of acetogenins have shown remarkable ATP inhibiting characteristics that are specially effective in case of breast cancer. 

The researches conducted so far indicate that the acetogenins show a defined toxicity against tumor cells present in prostate adenocarcinoma, colon adenocarcinoma cell lines, human lymphoma cell lines, human breast solid tumor lines, liver cancer cell lines and pancreatic carcinoma cell lines. 

Through out the last century researchers have worked hard to find out the effects and side effects Griviola might have on the cancer and tumor cells. It will take time to finally come up with a drug that will be able to fight tumors and cancers without putting the patient in more pain than he is already in, even though a specific drug is not available yet but soursop supplements are recommended by Doctors.

A ripe soursop fruit can be very soft and can be easily torn apart without the use of a blade. On the inside is a soft creamy pulp embedded with numerous black seeds. Through time and based on numerous scientific studies, its use has evolved to alternative cancer treatment, as apposed to being consumed for mere pleasure. It can also be used for making juice, ice cream and even soursop leaf tea.

There are health benefits found in the leaf of the Soursop, 9 Benefits of Soursop Leaves|Graviola|Guanabana

Most of us know of cancer and know that it is a serious illness but many do not understand what cancer essentially is and how it works.

Our body is made up of a countless number of cells. In order for development and growth to take place there must be cell division, new cells are formed and old cells die all in a natural cycle.

Cancer however is the disruption of this cycle, they do not die like normal cells, they just continue to grow. This growth abnormality is as a direct result of damage to the cell's DNA. Usually when the DNA of a cell is damaged it would be repaired or if not the cell would ultimately die. With cancer cells however there is no repair and no death just constant growth. 

When cells begin to divide and grow beyond control and further they begin to affect other tissue in the body those disruptive cells are categorized as cancer cells. There are over one hundred different types of cancer, all name based on the original cells which caused the disruption. Therefore Lung Cancer is the uncontrollable growth and spread of cells in the lungs, Breast Cancer pertains to the growth of cells in the breast, etc. So contrary to common belief the type of cancer someone has is not indicative of where the cancer is, it only points out where the cancer started. 

The soursop belongs to the Annonaceae family or Custard Apple family to which the annonaceous acetogenins are aboriginal. These chemicals in general have been documented with antitumorous, antiparasitic, insecticidal, and antimicrobial activities. Mode of action studies in three separate laboratories have recently determined that these acetogenins are superb inhibitors of enzyme processes that are only found in the membranes of cancerous tumor cells. This is why they are toxic to cancer cells but have no toxicity to healthy cells.

The Annonaceous acetogenins discovered in soursop thus far include: annocatalin, annohexocin, annomonicin, annomontacin, annomuricatin A & B, annomuricin A thru E, annomutacin, annonacin, annonacinone, annopentocin A thru C, cis-annonacin, cis-corossolone, cohibin A thru D, corepoxylone, coronin, corossolin, corossolone, donhexocin, epomuricenin A & B, gigantetrocin, gigantetrocin A & B, gigantetrocinone, gigantetronenin, goniothalamicin, iso-annonacin, javoricin, montanacin, montecristin, muracin A thru G, muricapentocin, muricatalicin, muricatalin, muri-catenol, muricatetrocin A & B muricatin D, muricatocin A thru C muricin H, muricin I, muricoreacin, murihexocin 3, murihexocin A thru C, murihexol, murisolin, robustocin, rolliniastatin 1 & 2, saba-delin, solamin, uvariamicin I & IV, xylomaticin.

There's also available technical data on how to grow, and maintain veges for 'human body disease prevention" Consultancy and organic gardens developed and designed

Extensive research has shown that the soursop pulp contains 81% moisture, 3% titratable acidity and 24% non-reducing sugar. The seed contains: 2% protein, 8% fibre, 13% ash, 8% moisture, 20% fat and 47% carbohydrate.

Soursop Nutrition facts

Thirteen drugs are used in chemotherapy and their consequent side effects are: destruction of the immune system, leukopenia, hemorrhage, gonadal suppression, bone marrow depression, phlebosclerosis (hardening of the veins), severe cellulites, vesication(blistering), tissue necrosis(death), fever, chills, nausea, prolonged vomiting, partial or total hair loss, lethargy, disorientation, ataxis(inability to coordinate muscle movements), dysarthria( impaired speech), anorexia, entertitis, stomatitis, erythema, (morbid redness of the skin), anemia, liver failure, kidney failure, cancer, and death. Yet still chemotherapy is the most widely used form of cancer treatment. One of the side effects that is more than likely inevitable is that of hair loss. 

This is because while chemo is destroying those harmful cancer cells in the body it is also causing harm to the normal healthy cells. This does not occur with soursop, Instead soursop kills damaged cells, and ONLY the damaged cells leaving the body safe from the side effects associated with chemotherapy. Dr. Hardin B. Jones, Professor of Medical Physics and Physiology at Berkeley, made a study lasting 25 years of the life span of cancer patients, and concluded that untreated patients do not die sooner than patients receiving orthodox treatment, (surgery, radiation and chemotherapy), and in many cases they lived longer yet we rely so highly on these forms of treatment.

Radiation is a form of cancer treatment that uses high energy radioactive material to damage cancer cells by killing their DNA. There are three types of radiation therapy: internal, external and systematic Internal radiation is administered by placing a radioactive substance in the body near the source of the cancer cells to kill them. 

External radiation therapy is done by a machine outside the body which generates gamma rays, x-rays and other charged particles and emits them into the body. High levels of radiation are not healthy or acceptable under any normal circumstances however it is accepted due to the urgency required for treatment by many cancer patients. 

So I now ask: can you eat a soursop under normal circumstances? The answer is undoubtedly yes!

I will again stress that soursop is an all natural fruit not a drug so why do you find it so hard to believe that nature is able to provide answers that science "claims" to not have found.

What is most remarkable about radiation is that it is able to kill cancer cells; well of course it can its radioactivity going through the human body. However along with those dead cancer cells one must forfeit normal cells because unlike the soursop radiation cannot specifically target the mutated cancer cells. Even with internal and systematic radiation which are the most isolated forms one must still suffer the death of perfectly healthy cells in the body. Why not try a glass of cold soursop juice.
