Scientific Research

According to the latest published information, Graviola has been researched in laboratory tests since the 1970s, where it's been shown to:

  • Effectively target and kill malignant cells in 12 different types of cancer, including Colon, Breast, Prostrate, Lung and Pancreatic Cancer.

  • Be 10,000 times stronger in killing colon cancer cells than Adriamycin (a commonly used chemotherapeutic drug).

  • Selectively hunt down and kill cancer cells without harming healthy cells, unlike chemotherapy.

Scientists have been studying the properties of this plant since the 1940s and have published numerous studies on their findings. Perhaps the 1976 plant screening program by the National Cancer Institute was most instrumental in increasing worldwide awareness of this wonder plant. The study showed that the plant's leaves and stem contained active cytotoxic (the ability to kill cells that are not functioning properly) effects against cancer cells without harming other cells. Studies have identified specific phytochemicals and acetogenins that are selectively toxic toward various cancer cells. The inhibition of further growth of cancer cells in lung, prostate, pancreatic, colon and liver cancer has been demonstrated over the years. Graviola treatments has not yet gained full acceptance by the medical community, but ongoing testing by researchers and pharmaceutical companies suggests that there is great promise with this plant.
