The Benefits of Using Graviola Plant to Fight Cancer
Even in ancient days, Graviola has already been recognized as a plant with medicinal properties. There has been extensive research done in modern times which shows that graviola is a cancer alternative remedy. And they continue to explore the hidden healing power of this plant.
IN many studies, it has been shown that graviola contains many active compounds and chemicals that have healing properties including natural phytochemicals which has potent anti-tumor properties and exhibit selective toxic property against tumor cells. Graviola is shown to contain anticancerous, antitumorous, and antiviral properties.
With graviola, enzyme processes in cancerous cells are inhibited by its natural compounds. The toxicity of these natural compounds is selective; they are toxic for cancerous cells but not in healthy cells. Other studies have also shown that the stem and leaves of the graviola plant have active toxic effects against cancer cells. The selective toxic effect is exhibited by the natural compounds in graviola against different cancer cell lines including lung, prostate, breast tumor, liver cancer, pancreatic, colon and breast cell lines. Even very low dosages of graviola compounds are highly toxic to ovarian, breast, cervical, bladder, and skin cancer cells.
Other activites of graviola compounds include antiparasitic, insecticidal, and antimicrobial activities. The antioxidant potential of graviola leaves makes it an effective scavenger of free radicals.
Nutritional and antioxidant deficiencies result in a compromised immune system which are very much related to the presence of cancer today. Cells in the body mutate to cancer cells if the immune system is not able to fight off free radicals that cause these. Radiation or chemotherapy treatment may slow down cancer and allow remission, but the cancer is not eliminated and so it is not cured.
Mainstream medical establishments have not yet fully accepted findings and evidences of herbal medicines and nutritional therapies that are more effective in the fight against cancer for many reasons. Natural medicines are less costly than chemotherapy and so they will profit less with it. Evidence has also been suppressed about the effectiveness of graviola to fight cancer.
With graviola plant still being under investigation, it inspires us to know that more and more people in the world want to get hold of this great potential to treat our serious sicknesses. If you go to health stores today, you will find graviola extracts, graviola powder, and graviola supplements being sold to promote optimal health in individuals and used as a general health tonic.
Someday, even if the graviola plant will not be profitable to drug companies and the medical industry, with all the promising new findings that can benefit human health, it will still get its fair hearing. These studies that we are having today will not be wasted when it will finally be proven fully and accepted by all to be the best natural cancer treatment known to man.
