Guyabano / GRAVIOLA and cancer
There have been studies that showed that those who took Graviola extract had better immune systems. The extract was shown to be helpful in targeting and killing cancer cells in about 12 types of cancer, including prostate, colon, pancreatic, breast, and lung cancer. The compounds in the extract have been proven to help in slowing down the growth of malignant cells, even better than the strong and commonly used chemotherapeutic agent, Adriamycin.
When people undergo chemotherapy, all the body systems suffer alongside the malignant cells. The guyabano extract’s compound will selectively track and kill only the cancerous cells. The healthy cells are left alone. There have been studies conducted since 1976 that indicate guyabano is indeed a very good killer of cancer cells.
The claims still need to be backed by more studies, according to a lot of experts. There are a lot of people claiming that they have benefited from the extract, but there are still no recorded therapeutic claims from the use of guyabano extract.
