Labs Look to Tropical Trees Containing Anti-Cancer Properties

We often bypass the marketed hype on the latest miracle cures, but when digging a bit deeper the findings surprise you.

Researchers are calling Graviola one of the most powerful plants on the planet, and research by the National Cancer Institute, and Purdue University, among many others are impressed by its anticancer properties.

Graviola is a small tree vertical tree that grows 5-6 meters tall with large, dark green, glossy leaves. It is native to the tropical forests of Peru and Brazil. The fruit is also sold in local markets in the tropics.

US labs have been performing test on Graviola for decades. Several studies have shown Graviola to have exceptional benefits for the treatment of certain types of cancers, especially those located in the lung, pancreas and prostate.

Purdue University in Indiana began testing Graviola in the 1990’s, for the treatment of tumors. The University has conducted research on the inhibitory action and derivatives in cancer cells, and has filed more than four patents in the United States that use acetogenic components on cancer cells.

Acetogenins are powerful inhibitors and chemotherapeutic reports Handy on this website. Labs have found that acetogenins have 10,000 times the power of chemotherapy agents, and they inhibit cancer cells without any hazardous effects or potential risk to healthy cells.

Research is on-going but thus far, the leaves and stem of Graviola are demonstrating active action against cancer cells without affecting the body.
