Graviola: The Fruit, It's Benefits & Uses

16 May 2021

Graviola, also known as Soursop, Guanabana or even Brazilian Paw Paw, derives from an evergreen tree that commonly grows in tropical rainforests. It is native to the tropical regions of Central & South America. 

The fruit is typically consumed raw by splitting it in half and scooping out the flesh. It has a creamy texture and tastes sour, citrusy, it is often compared with strawberry and apple or strawberry and pineapple. It is a low caloric fruit, packed with fibre and vitamin C!

But let's dive into the health benefits...

The leaves, seeds, fruit and stem are mostly used as an Ayurvedic dietary and medical supplement to help several severe conditions such as herpes, cough, cancer and other bacterial and parasitic infections. 

It is a powerful antibacterial. Lab experiments have concluded that soursop can kill multiple types of bacteria that cause oral diseases.

It can act as an anti-inflammatory. Studies have shown that soursop can help towards inflammation and may be used for more severe inflammatory conditions.

It is packed with antioxidants. Antioxidants help the body fight off or prevent damage from harmful compounds called 'free-radicals'. The high content of antioxidants in graviola has also shown to protect the digestive tract from free-radical damage, protecting the stomach's lining. 

It can be anti-cancerous. Studies have highlighted the effectiveness of soursop on cancer cells. A study on the effects of soursop extract on breast cancer cells revealed a reduction in tumour size, boosted white blood cells count, and increased lymphocytes in the body that kill off cancer cells. 

It maintains blood sugar levels. People struggling with diabetes may find graviola a beneficial supplement, due to the reduction in blood sugar levels.

Overall, balance this supplement with a mindful, healthy lifestyle and you will reap the benefits!
