The graviola fruit, also known as soursop, is a tropical fruit which has powerful anti-cancer properties confirmed by many studies. The fruit has been found to be beneficial against lung, colon, cervical, prostate, ovarian, breast, liver and pancreatic cancer as well as lymphoma.

The fruit can kill up to 12 different types of cancer cells!

Graviola has been able to change the metabolism of pancreatic cancer cells, a discovery made by a pathologist at the University of Nebraska. Another study showed that the fruit is 10 000 times more powerful than Adriamycin (a common chemotherapy drug) in the treatment of colon cancer cells, and the fruit targets cancer cells specifically unlike the conventional treatment.

According to a study, the soursop fruit can slow down the growth of breast cancer cells. The study explained that the dietary GFE triggered significant growth inhibition of the MDA-MB-468 cells both in vitro and in vivo. This occurred through a mechanism that engages the EGFR\ERK signaling pathway, effectively proving that GFE may have a protective impact on women.

Experts say that the anti-cancer effects of graviola are due to the presence of acetogenins, powerful NADH oxidase inhibitors. The fruit also contains phytochemicals such as friedelin, anonaine, quercetin, xylopine, isolaureline, anomurine, kaempferol, annonamine and asimilobine.
