For people of the past, the graviola plant is one of those plants that are useful due to its medicinal properties. There has been extensive research done in modern times which shows that graviola is a cancer alternative remedy. Studies are still being conducted today to explore further the healing power of the graviola 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. Other properties found in graviola include anticancerous, antitumorous, 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.
Nutritional and antioxidant deficiencies result in a compromised immune system which are very much related to the presence of cancer today. Cells in the body mutate to cancer cells if the immune system is not able to fight off free radicals that cause these. 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 is because they will profit more from chemotherapy than natural medicines. And they have suppressed evidence and finding that graviola can make a huge difference 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.
