Beside the sour but sweet and delicious taste, Soursop is an excellent source of vitamins and minerals, which can boost your energy and provide you with a number of health benefits.
Despite the fact that Soursop’s benefits have been well known in ancient medicine, it is only recently that modern science has jumped on the bandwagon. In 1976, a study conducted by the National Cancer Institute, was made on Guanabana as a possible cure for cancer. The outcomes were quite astounding.
It was found that among the Soursop benefits include its capacity to eliminate cancer cells in the body using the leaves and stems of the tree. It was also found that it had an ingredient that was 10,000 times more potent than chemo. The Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York also affirms that Soursop, particularly Soursop extract, has valuable elements, including anti-rheumatic, anti-viral, anti-parasitic and emetic.
Firstly, we have to know that the Soursop fruit is rich in vitamins and minerals, including vitamin B1, B2, and C. It is also rich in potassium, calcium, zinc, phosphorous and magnesium. The stem, bark and leaves are rich in antioxidants, particularly Coenzyme Q10 to fight inflammation, eliminate free radicals, and ensure your body is functioning at optimum levels.
