Graviola tree – how to use it

June 5th, 2012

In modern times, graviola is very interesting to medical researchers because it contains chemicals called annonaceous acetogenins. After several studies showed that these chemicals can successfully attack the cancer cells. Discussions are ongoing whether graviola tree is not officially patented as a mass medication for the treatment of cancer, although studies are still in very early stages and could reveal some possible side effects of medication.All sites that offer graviola product of the group of dietary supplement claims quite convincingly that no side effects such as causing cancer drugs.

Graviola tree can be found in South America and other tropical islands and grows best in tropical forest climate. Known as the Brazilian pawpaw, soursop and guanaba, there are many other names that refer to a particular tree or its fruit. The fruit is green with size 6-8 inches (15:24 to 20:32 cm) in diameter.

In ancient times the leaves of graviola tree have been used for tea to reduce swelling of mucous membranes, especially fever or to treat liver diseases. The black seeds of the fruit are ​​used as a tool against worms. All parts of the tree when you digest and absorb have a calming effect.The flesh of the fruit is very popular in juices, sherbets and shakes, and is sharp and sweet. Fruit can be eaten, although for many people its taste is sour. As taste graviola tree is nothing special and is not advisable to eat, but since ancient times used to make medicines.The fruit has been used to reduce joint pain, to treat heart disease, or as a sedative to reduce the symptoms of cough or flu.

Of course use graviola can cause hair loss, but there are some side effects and should be carefully assessed. First, graviola can be emetic. A great deal of graviola juice might make some people throw up that makes not much different than standard chemotherapy. Second, graviola has a slight inhibitory effect on the cardiovascular system and should be avoided by people with heart disease or people with blood pressure or heart problems. Third graviola can stimulate uterine contractions and is strictly forbidden for pregnant women. Another side effect interactions with antidepressants. Graviola may also have antimicrobial properties that kill beneficial bacteria in the skin, vagina and intestines.

Prolonged use can lead to yeast and fungal infections. The chemicals present in graviola have also been found in people with atypical Parkinson’s disease, although no cause and effect relationship is firmly established. While graviola retailers can claim for fruit, vegetable and other parts are completely safe to the therapeutic dose, the Administration have not yet evaluated these statements as graviola tree is still regarded as a food supplement. While plant components used in local medicines, it remains questionable whether graviola is actually useful. At least, graviola should always be used under the supervision of a physician.


GRAVIOLA – a truly special tree!

The results of the American Health Sciences Institute are striking: HSI scientists state alkaloid formations in graviola tree can destroy cancer. Graviola comes from the botanical family Annonaceae, hence the Latin name Annona muricata.

For several years, graviola tree interested herbalists, who heard about it from local tribes with its “antidepressant action.” When in the bark of the graviola tree were found alkaloids like vilkakora, it immediately became the subject of interest to researchers and pharmaceutical institutes. Extracts of graviola that attack and destroy with extreme precision, cancer cells are examined not only because of the possibility to use in the treatment of tumors.

Prestigious research institutes confirmed the effectiveness of graviola tree for high blood pressure, rheumatism, insomnia, various boils, scurvy, malaria, fever, fungus, caused by dermatophytes. Striking fact is that while selectively destroying cancer cells graviola leaves unbroken healthy cells, which means that it acts differently from those agents used in chemotherapy that are known and harm the whole organism. It is also found that graviola prevents any infections, improves mood and gives energy. Like vilkakora, it acts by enhancing the body’s defenses. The conclusions of the Health Sciences Institute are also supported by three U.S. pharmaceutical companies. One study trying for several years to produce a laboratory duplicate of chemical compounds presented in the bark of graviola tree. Unfortunately, these efforts are not successful. The company tried to acquire a license for the sale of an extract from the tree, but federal law does not allow patenting of natural substances. Dreams for quick profits fail and despite the huge financial endowments invested in laboratory work, studies were terminated, and their publication prohibited.

National Cancer Institute has begun research on graviola back in 1976 with the aim to discover anticancer drug. As previously, analysis are done on the bark, roots, fruits and seeds of graviola tree. Indians prepared their medicines that were used in the treatment of diseases of the heart, liver, asthma, graviola artrit. The scientists compare its influence with the known chemical anti-cancer medicine Adriamycyn. Laboratory tests show highly efficient operation of the active compounds of graviola. It is confirmed that its potential is 10 000 times greater than the potential of Adriamycyn. Extracts of graviola are completely natural – they have no side effects. Mild irritation of the digestive tract can only be obtained when taking doses greater than 5 g, and then only if taken on an empty stomach. Graviola was also studied at the Catholic University of Korea. There, researchers confirmed that two chemical compounds extracted from the seeds of graviola have “selective manner”, making them reliable instrument to destroy cancer cells of tumors of the breast and colon. The leaves of graviola tree tested by Purdue University, also contain substances with strong anticancer activity. Scientists say they are very effective in the treatment of 12 types of cell tumors, including pancreatic cancer, lung and prostate. Clinicians also confirm these claims, with numerous examples to cure various diseases on occasional patients. For example, some Texas director with advanced prostate cancer, who instead of a complex operation decided to take a potion of graviola. After two weeks of treatment when the PSA it dropped to zero, and sonographic studies and tests with gamma rays showed that his body has no tumor formations.

The press continually published materials for the establishment of large plantations in the Amazon graviola, which invest mainly Americans.
