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.
The active compounds and chemical in the graviola plant were shown to have anti-tumor properties which are selective 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. Their toxicity is only for cancerous cells and not in health 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. The antioxidant potential of graviola leaves makes it an effective scavenger of free radicals.
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.
You might be wondering why mainstream medical establishments have not accepted the finding on graviola plant as a more effective treatment for 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. Today, you can already buy graviola extracts, graviola powder, and other graviola supplements being sold in the market to promote optimal health and used as a general health tonic.
Someday, even if the graviola plant will not be profitable to drug companies and the medical industry, with all the promising new findings that can benefit human health, it will still get its fair hearing. These studies that we are having today will not be wasted when it will finally be proven fully and accepted by all to be the best natural cancer treatment known to man.
