Soursop (Annona muricata), also known as graviola or guanabana, may have a funny name, but has amazing health benefits! The outside has a spiny, green texture and the tangy sweet flesh is used in beverages, candy, and ice cream in the tropical cuisines.
Soursop is loaded with folate, niacin, thiamin, vitamin C, calcium, magnesium, potassium, and fiber. This tasty fruit is used in natural and indiginous medicine to treat upset stomachs, coughs, asthma, skin conditions, gout, fever and as a mild, natural sedative.

The Big Question Is Can Soursop Fight & Prevent Cancer?
Until recently, most of the studies on the antioxidant rich soursop have scrutinized the roots, leaves, and seeds. According to the reports in current research, the humble, fresh fruit of the soursop has risen to a new level of importance; it has anti-cancer benefits!
Scientists at the Tepic Institute of Technology (ITT) in Mexico discovered acetogenins, a compound in the fruit with incredible chemotherapeutic properties.
Researchers with ITT are studying soursop in an effort to find more anti-cancer foods that are readily available in the tropics due to the steadily rising cases of cancer among their population, which is blamed on environmental pollution.
Head researcher, Montalvo González, explained, “Our research seeks to add value to the fruit so the least of it is wasted. We focus on acetogenins compounds and scientific research shows that the compounds found in this fruit can encapsulate tumors.”
Using soursop to prevent cancer by including it in staple foods is both innovative and beneficial to everyones health.
This fruit is not new. In fact, a 1997 study published in the Journal of Medicinal Chemistry found that soursop was more than 200 times as effective as chemotherapy when tested on breast cancer cells!

Why Haven’t You Heard of Soursop to Prevent Cancer?
As it always seems to be the case, cancer organizations briefly discuss natural remedies and then dismiss the evidence as “inconclusive,” or state that the study was “too small.”
When incredible discoveries are made about natural remedies, it is a little strange that multiple universities and cancer research centers do not immediately launch larger studies, but because big pharma cant patent nature, many natural studies go unfunded.
Patients suffering with end-stage cancer would likely appreciate the opportunity to be included in a trial to fight their cancer naturally if their toxic chemical treatment has failed. Getting the information to the world about natural cancer therapy alternatives is important!
Clearly, pharmaceutical companies, food manufacturers and cancer organizations aren’t going to step up and tell you what scientists all over the world are finding in foods provided by nature.
