The medicinal properties of graviola has been recognized since the ancient days. There has been extensive research done in modern times which shows that graviola is a cancer alternative remedy. And they continue to explore the hidden healing power of this plant.
Graviola has been shown to have many active compounds and chemicals that have healing properties and anti-tumor properties and selective toxic properties against tumor cells. Graviola is shown to contain anticancerous, antitumorous, and antiviral properties.
With graviola, enzyme processes in cancerous cells are inhibited by its natural compounds. The toxicity of these natural compounds is selective; they are toxic for cancerous cells but not in healthy cells. IN other studies, graviola stem and leaves have shown their 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.
Other activites of graviola compounds include antiparasitic, insecticidal, and antimicrobial activities. Graviola leaves possess antioxidant potential and is an effective radical scavenger.
Cancer is present in a lot of people today because of deficiencies in nutrition and antioxidants which compromises the immune system. A compromised immune system will not be able 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.
Mainstream medical establishments have not yet fully accepted findings and evidences of herbal medicines and nutritional therapies that are more effective in the fight against cancer for many reasons. It can be profit motivated since natural medicines are far less costly than chemotherapy. And they have suppressed evidence and finding that graviola can make a huge difference in fighting cancer.
With graviola plant still being under investigation, it inspires us to know that more and more people in the world want to get hold of this great potential to treat our serious sicknesses. 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. When that day comes, many of our cancer patients will appreciate the work that was poured towards finding a cure for cancer.
