GRAVIOLA is a tree found plentifully in the Amazon rain forests which produces heart shaped fruit. GRAVIOLAis not only ecologically, sustainably and regeneratively raised and harvested as an important therapeutic plant, it is a critical source of income for many indigenous people who live in impoverished Amazonian territories where it is grown.

GRAVIOLAcontains novel natural plant chemicals, meaning that they are only specifically found in the GRAVIOLAplant, which may help deliver potential vital nutritional and phytochemical benefits related to tissue health and wellness in the body. The bark, root, leaf, stem, fruit and fruit seeds of GRAVIOLA are all used in traditional medicine, in different ways and its diverse phytochemistry.

GRAVIOLA's documented natural healthy plant chemicals include a collection of novel compounds, including novel novel acetogenins, most notably Annonaceous acetogenins, novel antioxidants, tannins, saponins, phytosterols, flavonoids and anthraquinones; novel alkaloids and long chain fatty acids, which may help seek out metabolic, oxidative and biochemical imbalance in cells, tissues, organs and body systems.

In traditional medical systems, the main researched plant actions include:

antioxidant, anti-mutagenic, anti-angiogenic, anti-tumorous, anti-parasitic, strongly anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal, anti-microbial, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, anti-spasmodic and natural plant steroid; immune modulator; hypotensive (lowers blood pressure), anti-depressant, analgesic, anti-ulcer, anti-diabetic, insecticidal

GRAVIOLA is commonly used in South American traditional medical systems to help address internal and external bacterial, viral, fungal and parasitic infections, due to its strongly anti-microbial, anti-septic, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-viral, anti-parasitic, anti-inflammatory, fever and pain relieving plant actions.

GRAVIOLA has been studied for its anti-mutagenic and anti-angiogenic plant actions. An anti-mutagenic may help promote healthy cells, tissues and DNA while also working to help interfere and help destroy unhealthy cells which attempt to cause cell death and attempt to make changes to healthy DNA, both which undermine immune health and may set up pathways for disease.

An anti-angiogenic plant action works to help prevent tumors from growing their own blood vessels, or "life lines" to continue aberrant growth, DNA and healthy cell and tissue decline. An anti-angiogenic plant action works to halt blood flow and nutrients to irregular tissues, which results in cell and tissue apoptosis, or death of unhealthy cells and tissues.

GRAVIOLA's plant actions may help deplete the energy necessary to create abnormal cells, while helping to support healthy cellular response, which may have an important role in disease prevention. An anti-mutagenic also performs a scavenging action against free radical damage, and may help break down irregular tissues and growths which have been reprogrammed by unhealthy cells.

GRAVIOLA is a cytoxotic and is also selectively cytotoxic in that it specifically targets abnormal, unhealthy cells that are invading healthy cells and tissues, however Graviola does not harm healthy surrounding tissues nor does it undermine immune health.

GRAVIOLA is also used in South American traditional medical systems to help address catarrh due to its plant actions to help relax mucous membrane inflammation and to help rid of mucous in the nose, throat and lungs. For persistent cough; for leishmaniasis; for herpes infection (studied for its potential to help block viral action on the cells and tissues and may help inhibit future outbreaks), as a sedative, nervine and cardio tonic to help address heart conditions, to help regulate high blood pressure and blood sugar levels; as a mild sedative and nervine for stress, anxiety to help relax the Central Nervous System as well as to help regulate nervous disorders.

Again, it's important to note that most of the research conducted on GRAVIOLA has been done so in-vitro (lab), with limited in-vivo (human or animal) studies. It's also important to state that GRAVIOLA is not a cure for cancer or a replacement for tumor or cancer therapies. Rather, the purpose of this video is to cover studied, documented and researched plant actions of GRAVIOLA and its use as a dietary support in South American traditional medical systems.
