Graviola Extract


Newark DE, July 2, 2007. A new Graviola extract has been introduced by Amazon Botanicals LLC.

Graviola extract is the new hot topic amongst cancer researchers. Researchers have been studying a unique group of chemicals found only in the family of plants of which graviola belongs. Graviola extract contains chemicals that have antitumorous properties and destroy various types of cancer cells - while not harming healthy cells. Graviola extract is an excellent alternative therapy for those suffering from cancer.

Graviola extract contains chemicals called Annonaceous acetogenins. Different research groups have established that these chemicals have antitumorous properties.1-12 Acetogenins are inhibitors of enzyme processes that are only found in the membranes of cancerous cells and this is why they destroy cancer cells but not healthy cells. In 1997, Purdue University, in West Lafayette, Indiana reported that Annonaceous acetogenins “not only are effective in killing tumors that have proven resistant to anti-cancer agents, but also seem to have a special affinity for such resistant cells.”

Graviola should be taken as a complementary therapy upon the advice of a physician.
