According to a recent research, the Graviola fruit extract can effectively destroy the malignant cells of 12 different cancer types.
The fruit is also known as soursop or guyabano, and its extract can kill the affected cells in the case of lung, colon, liver, pancreatic, cervical, prostate, ovarian, and breast cancer.
This is one of the most important discoveries for the people suffering from these diseases.
It’s been found out by a pathologist from the University of Nebraska that the fruit has incredible effects in the treatment of pancreatic cancer, as it dramatically reduced the tumorigenicity and altered the metabolism of the tumor cells.
Furthermore, according to a lab study, its extract is up to 10 000 times more powerful in destroying colon cancer cells than Adriamycin, which is a common chemotherapy drug. Plus, it only destroys the cancerous cells, without affecting the healthy ones.
Graviola has also shown excellent result in cervical cancer treatment.
According to another study, it stops the growth of the cancer cells, as the dietary extract of this fruit triggered a dramatical growth inhibition of MDA-MB-468 cells in vitro and in vivo studies through a mechanism that engages the EGFR/ERK signaling pathway.
This means that it may protect women from EGFR- over-expressing BC.
But, the amazing powers of this fruits don’t stop here. It’s been discovered by researchers that Graviola can provide positive effects in the treatment of other cancer types as well, thanks to the presence of acetogenins, which are potent substances that can inhibit the NADH oxidase of the cancer cells plasma membranes, and thus inhibit the growth of cancer.
Moreover, Graviola contains other beneficial substances, phytochemicals, including asimilobine, quercetin, friedelin, kaempferol, anonaine, xylopine, isolaureline, anomurine, and annonamine.
