There is a growing number of articles promoting the health benefits of Graviola nowadays, and numerous studies investigating the same subject. Namely, apart from its innumerate health benefits, it is also reported to have “powerful effects at stopping cancer.”
Graviola tree is found in South America, more specifically, in the Amazon River basin. It is usually about 15-30 feet tall, but packs a strong nutritional punch.
Its fruit has a delicious custard-like texture and a striking, “spiked melon”- like appearance, but most of the best health benefits are actually found in the leaves and bark. Hence, the Graviola tree bark and the leaves have been consumed in healing teas by the Amazon natives for thousands of years to treat ailments ranging from arthritis to parasites and liver issues.
Graviola, also known as soursop, is believed to be “10,000 times stronger than chemotherapy” at killing cancerous cells, which basically positions it as the answer to one of the most devastating diseases of this era.
While these magnificent possible cancer-killing properties of Graviola have been disputed by government agencies, this popular Amazon superfood is proven to be offering a wide variety of other benefits to help protect and boost your health. Some of these are the following:
-Support for your entire immune system
-Help in stimulating blood circulation within your system
-Highly active antioxidant compounds, offering protection against aging
-Assistance in draining the lympathic system
Graviola’s properties which boost the immune system have been approved by the FDA, which is not the case with its anti-cancer effects. Moreover, the government agency asked websites which published information about the anti-cancer effects of Graviola to remove those claims or they would face stiff penalties.
Even though the FDA doesn’t agree with anti-cancer studies that show Graviola’s potential for selectively targeting and killing cancer cells within the body, a great number of people continue to take it for that purpose. Furthermore, there is much independent research on Graviola’s purported anti-cancer effects. Unfortunately, there are no long-term human studies on Graviola for cancer and other diseases it is believed to be effective against.
Purdue University’s School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences conducted the biggest and most comprehensive study on the anti-cancer effects of Graviola, which investigated substances in the tree called annonaceous acetogenins.
This research cost the university millions and it eventually gave some promising news: the compounds were shown to be powerful at inhibiting the growth of cancer cells, while remarkably leaving normal cells along. These compounds from Graviola were also found to work against drug-resistant cancer cells as well.
The FDA and those who question the study point out that these were in vitro results, done on cancer cells in test tubes and not in clinical trials.
Nevertheless, it is a fact that Graviola is a powerful natural medicine, so before you decide to use it to help you achieve your health goals, you need to consult your doctor first.
Organic Graviola Supplements
Graviola has a long history of use as a complementary natural medicine as it offers a ton of healing potential.
Nevertheless, the most potent forms of Graviola are those that are wild-crafted, meaning they were grown in their typical natural surroundings and harvested in the wild, rather than in large monocultures. One good company to buy Graviola from is RainTree, as they have been researching the herbs for years and often cited as a popular source for information on Amazon Rainforest herbs and healing plants. Another such company that offers wild- crafted Graviola is Amazon Therapeutic laboratories.
However, we must point out that this article is for informational purposes only and should not be taken as medical advice. At the end of the day, the best way to take Graviola is under the care of a naturopathic physician who has utilized it in their practice before.

CANCER KILLER – Natural Cancer Cell Killer 10,000 Times Stronger Than Chemo!
The Sour Sop or the fruit from the graviola tree is a miraculous natural cancer cell killer 10,000 times stronger than Chemo.
Why are we not aware of this? Its because some big corporation want to make back their money spent on years of research by trying to make a synthetic version of it for sale.
So, since you know it now you can help a friend in need by letting him know or just drink some sour sop juice yourself as prevention from time to time. The taste is not bad after all. It’s completely natural and definitely has no side effects. If you have the space, plant one in your garden.
The other parts of the tree are also useful.
The next time you have a fruit juice, ask for a sour sop.
How many people died in vain while this billion-dollar drug maker concealed the secret of the miraculous Graviola tree?
This tree is low and is called graviola in Brazil, guanabana in Spanish and has the uninspiring name “soursop” in English. The fruit is very large and the subacid sweet white pulp is eaten out of hand or, more commonly, used to make fruit drinks, sherbets and such.
If there ever was a single example that makes it dramatically clear why the existence of Health Sciences Institute is so vital to Americans like you, it’s the incredible story behind the Graviola tree..
The truth is stunningly simple: Deep within the Amazon Rainforest grows a tree that could literally revolutionize what you, your doctor, and the rest of the world thinks about cancer treatment and chances of survival. The future has never looked more promising.
Research shows that with extracts from this miraculous tree it now may be possible to:
* Attack cancer safely and effectively with an all-natural therapy that does not cause extreme nausea, weight loss and hair loss
* Protect your immune system and avoid deadly infections
* Feel stronger and healthier throughout the course of the treatment
* Boost your energy and improve your outlook on life
The source of this information is just as stunning: It comes from one of America ‘s largest drug manufacturers, the fruit of over 20 laboratory tests conducted since the 1970’s! What those tests revealed was nothing short of mind numbing… Extracts from the tree were shown to:
* Effectively target and kill malignant cells in 12 types of cancer, including colon, breast, prostate, lung and pancreatic cancer.
* The tree compounds proved to be up to 10,000 times stronger in slowing the growth of cancer cells than Adriamycin, a commonly used chemotherapeutic drug!
* What’s more, unlike chemotherapy, the compound extracted from the Graviola tree selectively hunts down and kills only cancer cells.. It does not harm healthy cells!
The amazing anti-cancer properties of the Graviola tree have been extensively researched — so why haven’t you heard anything about it?
One of America‘s biggest billion-dollar drug makers began a search for a cancer cure and their research centered on Graviola, a legendary healing tree from the Amazon Rainforest.
Various parts of the Graviola tree — including the bark, leaves, roots, fruit and fruit-seeds — have been used for centuries by medicine men and native Indians in South America to treat heart disease, asthma, liver problems and arthritis. Going on very little documented scientific evidence, the company poured money and resources into testing the tree’s anti-cancerous properties — and were shocked by the results. Graviola proved itself to be a cancer-killing dynamo.
But that’s where the Graviola story nearly ended.
The company had one huge problem with the Graviola tree — it’s completely natural, and so, under federal law, not patentable. There’s no way to make serious profits from it.
It turns out the drug company invested nearly seven years trying to synthesize two of the Graviola tree’s most powerful anti-cancer ingredients. If they could isolate and produce man-made clones of what makes the Graviola so potent, they’d be able to patent it and make their money back. Alas, they hit a brick wall. The original simply could not be replicated. There was no way the company could protect its profits — or even make back the millions it poured into research.
As the dream of huge profits evaporated, their testing on Graviola came to a screeching halt. Even worse, the company shelved the entire project and chose not to publish the findings of its research!
Luckily, however, there was one scientist from the Graviola research team whose conscience wouldn’t let him see such atrocity committed. Risking his career, he contacted a company that’s dedicated to harvesting medical plants from the Amazon Rainforest and blew the whistle.
When researchers at the Health Sciences Institute were alerted to the news of Graviola, they began tracking the research done on the cancer-killing tree. Evidence of the astounding effectiveness of Graviola — and its shocking cover-up — came in fast and furious….
….The National Cancer Institute performed the first scientific research in 1976. The results showed that Graviola’s “leaves and stems were found effective in attacking and destroying malignant cells.” Inexplicably, the results were published in an internal report and never released to the public…
….Since 1976, Graviola has proven to be an immensely potent cancer killer in 20 independent laboratory tests, yet no double-blind clinical trials–the typical benchmark mainstream doctors and journals use to judge a treatment’s value — were ever initiated….
….A study published in the Journal of Natural Products, following a recent study conducted at Catholic University of South Korea stated that one chemical in Graviola was found to selectively kill colon cancer cells at “10,000 times the potency of (the commonly used chemotherapy drug) Adriamycin…”
….The most significant part of the Catholic University of South Korea report is that Graviola was shown to selectively target the cancer cells, leaving healthy cells untouched. Unlike chemotherapy, which indiscriminately targets all actively reproducing cells (such as stomach and hair cells), causing the often devastating side effects of nausea and hair loss in cancer patients.
…A study at Purdue University recently found that leaves from the Graviola tree killed cancer cells among six human cell lines and were especially effective against prostate, pancreatic and lung cancers…. Seven years of silence broken — it’s finally here!
