Even in ancient days, Graviola has already been recognized as a plant with medicinal properties. Studies today have proven that graviola is also beneficial as an alternative remedy for cancer. And they continue to explore the hidden healing power of this plant.
IN many studies, it has been shown that graviola contains many active compounds and chemicals that have healing properties including natural phytochemicals which has potent anti-tumor properties and exhibit selective toxic property against tumor cells. Graviola is shown to contain anticancerous, antitumorous, 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. 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. Even very low dosages of graviola compounds are highly toxic to ovarian, breast, cervical, bladder, and skin cancer cells.
Other properties of graviola compounds include antiparasitic, insecticidal and antimicrobial activities. The leaves of graviola is an effective radical scavenger because of its antioxidant properties.
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 is because they will profit more from chemotherapy than natural medicines. Evidence has also been suppressed about the effectiveness of graviola to fight cancer.

If you go to health stores today, you will find graviola extracts, graviola powder, and graviola supplements being sold to promote optimal health in individuals and used as a general health tonic.
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. 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.
