This popular plant, also known as as soursop, Brazilian paw paw, guanabana and custard apple, grows in Africa, South America, and Southeast Asia. People from South American countries and in Africa have used the Graviola in different types of treatments with positive results, to treat parasites and viruses, depression, arthritis, rheumatism and various other kinds of sickness.

Not only the fruit of Graviola possesses nutritious properties, but its bark, seeds, roots, the stem and even its leaves are also rich in nutritients.
Due to its application in the treatments of various diseases, recently, Graviola has been put put under scientific research in recent years to be tested if it has the potential to treat cancer cells in the body. These powerful bioactive chemicals are called annonaceous acetogenins, and they appear to have powerful anti-cancer and anti-tumor properties.
However, this recent research discovered that the acetogenins are able to kill cancer cells. Moreover, even the cells which are drug-resistant can be targeted, avoiding the healthy ones to suffer.

To sum up, research has proved that Graviola can cure cancer cells, but it does not deliver positive results every time. This means that its use may work in some cases, but in others tends to make more problems than before. This is the reason why doctors recommend people to be patient and wait for the right research results involving the cure miracle of Graviola.
We must initially think not to cause additional problems and endanger our health, before we try all possible solutions, although sometimes people cannot afford the time and are desperate to get their hands on a possible cure.
