Graviola/ Guyabano..a herbal fruit...

Dear hubbers,

Let me share with you what I have read from books and emails about this fruit called Guyabano.. Hope you can get some idea and help you in your lifestyle.

Scientific name: Annona Muricata Linnaeus

also known as: Guanabana or Soursop

Heart shaped/oblong fruit with dark green and spike-like skin. Contains 60 to 100 black seeds that are non edible.

Guyabano tree is sensitive to very cold temparatures. Needs plenty of water. Usually grown in the tropics.

Low in cholesterol, saturated fats, potassium and dietary fiber.

Guyabano is considered to be antispasmodic, sudorific and emetic.

Boiling in water of guyabano leaves is used to kill bedbugs and head lies.

It is also used to reduce fever when taken internally.

According to email , a poultice of young guyabano leaves is applied on the skin can cure rheumatism and other skin infections.

The extract of the fruit when taken orally can also cure urethritis and liver ailments.

Certain chemicals extracted from guyabano leaves, fruit and bark is said to kill cancer cells. According to medical studies, it is 10,000 times stronger than chemotherapy. It attacks cancer cells safely with all-natural therapy. And does not cause extreme weight loss and hair loss.

Guyabano when taken internally protects our immune system.

According to one TV show in the Philippines which I have viewed recently (Rated K), guyabano extracts also lightens stretchmarks when applied to the area.

Amazing fruit?! yes it is!!! So check out for this herbal fruit and discover its miracle..
