Soursop, also known as graviola, is a fruit used to treat infections caused by bacteria and parasites such as leishmaniasis, a disease caused by parasites transmitted through the bite of sand fleas.

Other diseases soursop treats include herpes, coughs, and cancer, as WebMD informs. Some people have used this fruit to trigger vomiting and thus empty their bowels. Some use it as it helps them relax.

Cancer Prevention

The leaves of the graviola plant are loaded with potent anti-cancer features that are the result of the phytochemicals in the plant. According to a study published in the journal Cancer Letters, graviola has a significant impact on pancreatic cancer. People suffering from this type of cancer who took graviola supplements stopped the cancerous pancreatic tumor cells from replicating and had them killed. According to researchers, this natural medicine is able to both prevent and treat cancer. People can also use the graviola leaves topically and thus treat skin cancer.

Treating Viral Infections

Graviola is even used in the traditional medicines as a treatment for viral infections. In May 1998 the Journal of Ethnopharmacology published an article that revealed that extracts from the leaves of this plant suppressed the herpes simplex virus. The herpes virus is known to be transmitted though bodily fluids and while kissing or through sexual contact.

The University of Maryland Medical Center says that up to 90 percent of the US population has been exposed to one form of the herpes virus and there is no cure for it. There are some anti-viral medications that are able to reduce the number of outbreaks or just lessen the symptoms. More research needs to be done in order to determine the effects graviola has when it comes to treatment or prevention of herpes.

Pain Reduction

Consumption of graviola leaves can help one reduce swelling and pain, a study published in May 2010 in the International Journal of Molecular Sciences says. The study involved mice with burned paws which were given extracts of graviola leaves. Then, the scientists observed the behavior of the mice, and noticed that the mice that were given the supplement had less swelling and showed fewer indications of pain. Nevertheless, a greater body of research is needed to determine the safety and efficiency of its use in humans.

Dosing

The amount of graviola one should take depends on a few factors, including the age of the one who uses it, their health, as well as several other conditions. However, at the moment there is not enough scientific information on how to determine the proper range of doses for graviola.

A hint: make sure you follow the relevant direction on the particular product label and make sure you consult a pharmacists or physician or other healthcare professional before you start using it.

Possible Side Effects

DO NOT EAT THE FRUIT: if you eat the fruit of graviola tree, you can contribute to movement disorders similar to Parkinson’s disease, a case-control study in the French West Indies says.

When it comes to the intake of graviola leaves, there is no established human dosage. If you use the graviola supplements for a long time or in high doses, you may cause damage to the myelin sheath, disrupting the normal nerve function. This can also lead to movement disorders because of the compounds known as alkaloids the plant contains. These conditions have symptoms that really resemble the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.

Before you engage into taking graviola leaf supplements, consult with a doctor. You should also consult them even before you start making/drinking soursop tea.

How to Make Soursop Tea

Directions:

– Boil one liter of water and then take one small stem and fifteen soursop dry leaves (you can also use fresh ones, they both have same nutritional value), cut them into tiny pieces and add them to the boiling water

– Leaving the pot uncovered, go on boiling the water at a low temperature for thirty minutes until the water evaporates and reduces to half a liter

– This is it, and your soursop tea is ready to be consumed. You should drink one cup of this tea three times a day: in the morning, in the afternoon, and in the evening. You can drink it hot, warm, or cool, just make sure you strain it before use.

– You can enhance the flavor of this tea by adding half a spoon of lime juice, two pudina leaves, or some honey (do not use sugar to sweeten the soursop tea).

When you drink this tea, you may feel the effects of the heat, but you won’t feel any side effects. If you want to cool your body afterwards, drink three glasses of fresh watermelon juice. You can also drink three glasses of goat milk every day. After two weeks, you will start feeling the benefits of soursop, and four weeks later, the improvements will be clearly noticed.

Note: The sourspo tea is consumed half an hour before meal.
