I just read an interesting article on Sott.net about the medicinal qualities of this fruit.
They grow deep within the Amazonian Rainforest and are told to possess magical powers.
But research has shown that these (and I quote):
- Effectively target and kill malignant cells in 12 types of cancer, including colon, breast, prostate, lung and pancreatic cancer.
- The tree compounds proved to be up to 10,000 times stronger in slowing the growth of cancer cells than Adriamycin, a commonly used chemotherapeutic drug!
- What’s more, unlike chemotherapy, the compound extracted from the Graviola tree selectively hunts down and kills only cancer cells. It does not harm healthy cells!
- Last but not least, they’re tasty!
Sounds too good to be true, i’m so curious now.
Even if it doesn’t cure cancer, fruit is always healthy and I wish I knew where to find me one to taste!
I only hope no one will be raiding the rainforest for these.
Please comment down below if you’ve tried these!
