So is it true, you may ask. Can a fruit really treat a number of illnesses?
Soursop has a fruit that is nice and sweet and filled with fiber and lots of great nutrients, and the leaves contain powerful healing elements that fight cancer naturally. For instance, it containes lots of tannins which are great to fight cancer and to boost the immune system, has compounds such as anonol, gentisic acid, annonacin, annocatalin and many more powerful chemicals.
Soursop leaf also works wonders for those who are going through chemotherapy helping to get rid of side effects, adverse symptoms, and weakness. In the Amazon native people make a very strong soursop tea using it to treat people who have cancer. And studies show that soursop leaves kills cancer cells 10,000 or more effectively than some other treatments without harming healthy cells. The tea contains lots of Vitamin C and other antioxidants which help to strengthen the immune system and fight off infections... and scavenge free radicals thus helping to prevent disease.
Also, to back this information up, we have the Health and Sciences Institute, which published papers saying that Soursop leaves were very effective in killing cancer cells without harming the rest of the body, futher followed by the National Cancer Institute, which found the same evidence. To top that, we also have the University of Purdue and other universities around the world backing up these findings.
Great news right? then why, not many people know about this?
