For people of the past, the graviola plant is one of those plants that are useful due to its medicinal properties. Studies today have proven that graviola is also beneficial as an alternative remedy for cancer. Studies are continuously being conducted to get more information about the healing power of the graviola 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. Aside from this, it has been shown that graviola has anticancerous, antitumours, 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.
Other properties of graviola compounds include antiparasitic, insecticidal and antimicrobial activities. Graviola leaves possess antioxidant potential and is an effective radical scavenger.
Many cancers today are known to be related to nutritional and antioxidant deficiencies that result in a compromised immune system. A compromised immune system will not be able to fight off free radicals that allow cells to mutate to cancer cells. although chemotherapy can help slow down cancer and allow remissions, it is not really an effective cure to it.
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.
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, 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.
