Soursop from the Graviola tree…..cancer killer or just forbidden fruit?

Have you heard of the Graviola Tree?  Or it’s english name, soursop?

Here is a verrry controversial topic that has this Brazilian fruit being touted by some as a cancer killer’ !!

Here is what is being tossed around the web

“10000 times stronger killer of Cancer than Chemo”.. do share it.. can save many lives, fill up hopes and build confidence in the patients…

The Sour Sop or the fruit from the graviola tree is a miraculous natural cancer cell killer 10,000 times stronger than Chemo. Why are we not aware of this? Its because some big corporation want to make back their money spent on years of research by trying to make a synthetic version of it for sale. So, since you know it now you can help a friend in need by letting him know or just drink some sour sop juice yourself as prevention from time to time. The taste is not bad after all. It’s completely natural and definitely has no side effects. If you have the space, plant one in your garden. The other parts of the tree are also useful.

The next time you have a fruit juice, ask for a sour sop.

The truth is stunningly simple: Deep within the Amazon Rainforest grows a tree that could literally revolutionize what you, your   doctor, and the rest of the world thinks about cancer treatment and chances   of survival. The future has never looked more promising.

Research shows that with extracts from this miraculous tree it now may be   possible to: * Attack cancer safely and effectively with an all-natural therapy   that   does not cause extreme nausea,    weight loss   and hair loss * Protect your immune system and avoid deadly infections * Feel stronger and healthier throughout the course of the treatment * Boost your energy and improve your outlook on life.

The source of this information is just as stunning: It comes from one of   America ‘s largest drug manufacturers, the fruit of over 20 laboratory tests   conducted since the 1970′s! What those tests revealed was nothing short of   mind numbing… Extracts from the tree were shown to:

* Effectively target and kill malignant cells in 12 types of cancer,   including colon, breast, prostate, lung and pancreatic cancer. * The tree compounds proved to be up to 10,000 times stronger in slowing the   growth of cancer cells than Adriamycin, a commonly used chemotherapeutic   drug! * What’s more, unlike chemotherapy, the compound extracted from the Graviola tree selectively hunts down and kills only cancer cells.  It does not harm healthy cells!

The amazing anti-cancer properties of the Graviola tree have been extensively   researched–so why haven’t you heard anything about it? If Graviola extract   is as half as promising as it appears to be–why doesn’t every single   oncologist at every major hospital insist on using it on all his or her   patients?

The spine-chilling answer illustrates just how easily our health–and for   many, our very lives(!)–are controlled by money and power.

Graviola–the plant that worked too well.

One of America’s biggest billion-dollar drug makers began a search for a  cancer cure and their research centered on Graviola, a legendary healing tree   from the Amazon Rainforest. 

The company had one huge problem with the Graviola tree–it’s completely   natural, and so, under federal law, not patentable. There’s no way to make   serious profits from it.

It turns out the drug company invested nearly seven years trying to synthesize two of the Graviola tree’s most powerful anti-cancer ingredients.   If they could isolate and produce man-made clones of what makes the Graviola   so potent, they’d be able to patent it and make their money back. Alas, they  hit a brick wall. The original simply could not be replicated. There was no way the company could protect its profits–or even make back the millions it  poured into research.

As the dream of huge profits evaporated, their testing on Graviola came to a screeching halt.  Even worse, the company shelved the entire project and chose not to publish the findings of its research!”

Wikipedia says soursop may be effective in treating infections and some forms of cancer, but the data is lacking.

What do I think?  Well, I would advise people not to believe this blindly, but consult a doctor or oncologist before putting ALL your marbles in one bag…………….but it is worth watching!

    I have never heard of this before! How interesting!! I’ll have to look for it in the store and try some. I’m curious now. If it tastes good, what can it hurt? 🙂

      What can it hurt?? We have to be careful about assuming that just because something is “natural” that it is good for us. There are many things in nature that will kill us.

      “The compound annonacin contained in the seeds of soursop is a neurotoxin and it seems to be the cause of a neurodegenerative disease. The only group of people known to be affected live on the Caribbean island of Guadeloupe and the problem presumably occurs with the excessive consumption of plants containing annonacin. The disorder is a so-called tauopathy associated with a pathologic accumulation of tau protein in the brain. Experimental results demonstrated for the first time that the plant neurotoxin annonacin is responsible for this accumulation.”

      Soursop has also been connected to an atypical form of Parkinson’s Disease which makes sense because annonacin is a neurotoxin. Other studies show that it can actually kill “good” bacteria is our bodies that make us more susceptible to vaginal and other infections. All this is not to say that there aren’t some beneficial properties to the fruit but I would be very cautious about incorporating too much of it into my diet without further human research.


      1. Anthony

        THank for this sensible reaction. If the graviola fruit, seeds or barks were the mysterious cancer killer, wouldnt thousands of cancer survivors who took graviola supplements tout their gratitude to this plant on the internet ?


    2. I am from the US Virgin Islands and i have three of these trees in my yard. The leaves are used to give crying babies at night to sleep and one thing i can vote to is that the inner heart of the sour sop fruit helps tightens the weak bladder to help stops the frequency of urination.


      1. Joseph Daniel

        Hi Charissa, I am Joseph from India(Chennai). I need this soursoap(Graviola) tree or fruit’s, can you please help me to get this tree or fruit ,please contact to me through mail( for further.

      Dear All,
      I am uditha From Sri lanka, We have Soursop leaves many. If any one wants to Dried graviola leaves from us we can supply.

    Another example of Big Pharma controlling our lives/health…Rather sickening really…Imagine the lives that could have been helped by this information…


      1. Darryl B. Lawton

        THAT is the key to it all! I have read many articles that say that it is the additives and chemicals in processed food and drink that causes cancer. This includes boxed and canned foods that depend heavily on processing, and hormone and antibiotic-laden animals grown for consumption in feed lots, etc. where health standards are not good at all.
        Eating organically, and eating FRESH foods is the key to staying healthy. As for soursop, or guanábana, as it is also known, if it tastes good…… enjoy some!


      1. my mother was given hours to live 9 months ago,dying from aggressive breast cancer.Gave my mother Jim Kelvins baking soda and maple syrup
        She is still alive and now she has Graviola juice in her fruit juice.She is doing very well.Next thing i expect to hear is that the cancer is gone


      1. Stephen Vo

        It’s a fruit that is commonly eaten in Asia. Does it cure cancer? Who knows. But natural fruits and vegetables are the key to a healthy life. You can find that fruit in the Asian Supermarkets. Like an apple and oranges eating 1 a day is good for your health!


    1. Claire

      So sorry to hear about the cancer. But hope you are not relying on this alone to treat your condition as the claims are unproven. In theory, as one person above said, what can it hurt to use something natural but please find out as much as you can about other aspects of it – side effects etc. I found this online – not that I can vouch for the writers as being any more “expert” than I am:

  4. Here is a link to Amazon that has guanábana juice. The brand name is Jan’s, and it looks like a case (24 pkgs) of 8.24 oz. cartons is about $26.00 plus shipping. If you like Amazon, and use it a lot, order over a certain amount of stuff, and get free shipping.


    1. One bad thing about processed juice is that it is pasteurized and that kills off any beneficial enzymes and good bacteria, which just might be the therapeutic part of the plant. The whole fruit would be the way to go and squeeze your own juice. And to the person who suggested that eating this fruit might have side effects which could cause Parkinson’s, among other things, I would like to know if id you have ever observed the effects of chemo therapy, or have any clue of how it destroys organs, capacities, abilities and many times lives? I would not mind living with Parkinson’s over cancer, any day… Plus we know that chemo is highly toxic and we also know that it does not work! Oh, it might prolong your life a few months, in agony, weakness and debilitation, but a cure, it is not!


    1. Nicolas

      When I was a kid I used to eat it in Cameroon, my home town. We had a tree of it in the backyard. Yes, You can find it in Cameroon, Central Africa


  5. lisbeth holland

    i just want to know please is patent yes or no and why is not patents please
    Iam doing a proposal for my master so i need a plants with property and companies want to use but no patents please i am from venezuela but iam in England now


    1. A naturally occurring substance cannot be patented.
      To turn a natural substance into a profit-making commercial scheme, you would first have to synthesise it and, despite millions of dollars spent on synthesising by multinational pharma’ companies, it has yet to be achieved. Soursop fruit juice is available via Amazon, and it has quite a pleasant taste, imho !


    1. Hunniedust

      I have done a little research here and the only thing I will say is do not follow this blindly do more research. What I have found it this has not been tested on humans and only found some of this to be true and a lot of it to be misleading.


    1. Joey

      Hi Katherine, you are so lucky to have your own Graviola tree – do you know where we can find seeds for this tree? We live in South Africa but is currently in the UAE.My brother has kidney cancer – it’s worth a try.


      1. Try googling ‘graviola seeds’ Joey !
        There’s little evidence to support the ‘anti cancer’ properties, but that didn’t stop me ordering some from Amazon !
        I’m terminal [secondaries in both lungs, bit of a bummer . . .] and I figure “What have I got to lose ?” I wish your bro’ all the best.


      2. hi. i am living in houston texas and i would like to inform you that there is a vietnamese store here that sells the friut like all, diffenrent sizes some are small, others real large and very very fresh. the lb is $11.99, but even the people from this market have told me it’s worth the price if it will save your life. it’s called soursop (THE FRUIT) and the store that sells it it’s HONG KONG MARKET on bellaire blvd and boone rd. if you need anymore info feel free to email me


    2. Manu

      Hi i am suffering fron breast cancer. .Please if possible can u send it to india..i will pay you the expenses as having the tree means u have natural fruit i.e without any tinge of chemicals .urgently required


    1. Della

      Can you ship this to Canada? My husband has been diagnosed with cancer…will try anything. We actually ate the fruit while were in St. Lucia for 2 months a few years ago.


    2. Manu

      Hi i am suffering fron breast cancer. .Please if possible can u send it to india..and is it without any preservatives etc.please tell if u can send me here in India


    1. Oh Jean, I am sorry you have to go through that. I would never say that one true thing could cure any disease or ailment, but might it help? I don’t know for sure…
      Ask your healthcare practitioner what they thinl. I have seen it online at Amazon.
      I hope this helps! Praying for you too! 🙂

    This is why we should stop them from ruining the rainforest. It is majestic and the animals and trees are there for a reason. There are so many hidden treasures there that arent even found yet I am sure. The greed of man should not have a hand in. The animals are dying out and everything is interlocked there. So, if u r able buy seeds and grow your own tree and help in the fight to keep the rainforest alive for all of us and what it has to give back to us all. 🙂


  7. Joey

    I agree Rozanne, excellent point, but please could you post the solution for the cancer sufferers that are desperate where to buy the seeds? Rainforest is very close to my heart and so is my brother suffering from kidney cancer that is spreading – would so much like to grow him a graviola tree! He’s receiving chemo but it makes him very very sick! Thank you for caring! ♥

    Yes can I have the article which Jay Halloway is talking about? If it does that type of damage then it can be very dangerous. Let me know please. Has anyone that as been using it that has cancer been healed yet or is it a myrh or just sales talk to get a new product on the market?


  10. Just FYI Apricot seeds are marvelous for cancer cure-I actually know a few people who have been cured in the last stages when doctors sent them home to die. My uncle is taking them now but I will warn you it is bitter. You take 9 a day if your fighting cancer or 5 a day for a healthy person. In the first 30 days the cancer spot will get hard and the 2nd 30 days it will get mushy then your body flushes it out. Like the guanabana it attacks only cancer cells.
    Also if your loved one is taking chemo or /and radiation Bareley Green pills are great it will keep their levels and enzymes where they should be so they will not loose their hair, have vomiting, diareahia and such. My uncle has been taking for almost 2 weeks and will not start chemo for another week so he should have enough in his system to help. Also Coral Calcium is great for fighting cancer the people I know who survived the stage 4 cancer took all 3 items above. You can google and find it easily. We use Aim Store, Dr. Barefoot and Nature’s Sunshine brands for Barely Green and Coral Calcium. The seeds we bought from a Spice for Life company (I think)
    May God bless each of you who are fighting cancer


    1. Patricia Burke

      Tina, thank you for this information. I did some research on the Sour Sop and found that helpful as well.. My friend just started chemo for ovarian cancer and it’s just horrible to see her go through the reactions. I will try your recommendation on the Apricot seeds, Bareley Green pills as well as the Coral Calcium. Thank you again.

      Hello everyone,
      The fruit is also native to Australia !!!
      It is called “Custard Apple”. Its taste is exquisite, unforgettable, how can you describe it : God has blessed the natives with one of the best fruits on earth.
      The Aussies knew what they were doing when they gave it the name “Custard”!!! You can cut it in half and eat it with a spoon!!! My most favorite fruit in Australia.
      What a bonus if you get all those health benefits as the article describes above.

      Very pleasantly surprised to have read your article today.


  12. Jamal

    Hi, I have read about soursop, but did not find the fruit neither the bark or leaves (we live in Houston, TX). my daughter is on remission from childhood leukemia. she has one more chemotherapy treatment to go through. her heart is getting affected from the chemo. Anybody had experience or knew someone who had the same problem, please leave comments or any suggestions on how to lower the chemo side effects.
    Thank you, and have a healthy day.

    Found a soursop tree for sale in an asian market in wichita, Kansas. The fresh fruit is Also found seasonaly in the asian markets. The vietnamese name( cay mang caí dai).


  14. Hi, even I agree that Soursop has various Medical and Health benefits. As more people are becoming aware of the health benefits of Soursop, the fruit sellers are taking advantage of them by selling the fruit at enormously high prices! But I bought Soursop Juice from SVA India(Mumbai) at a very economical cost, they are very friendly and reachable. You can also contact them on + (91)-(22)-22886789/98 if you are interested in buying the fruit/Juice/Tea/Leaves.

    Hi everyone,
    My Dad is suffering from pancreas cancer, can’t do any surgery. Now he is waiting to have Chemo after Easter. I saw a lot of people looking for Graviola/SOURSOUP. Same as those people here, I search the internet and found Graviola may able to help. I am not sure if that work or not, because I don’t see any comment seriously talking about their cancer fighting story using Graviola. Please if anyone have any result of success, PLEASE post here and let us know.

    Anyway, during this waiting period, I give graviola 500mg for my dad to try.
    I could not buy any fresh graviola from Hong Kong, so I try the Graviola, 100 Capsules. I purchased it from an online store called iherb. and if anyone using the code ‘VQT516’ , it is going to save you $10 USD.

    Please let us know the result. we really need this kind of information.

        On 2013 I was having mola pregnancy.after they evacuation they found cyst ovarium(type of lame tumor) on left 4 cm and right 6 cm. They keep monitoring every month if it’s the size increase they need to do surgery to remove I refuse for surgery then I found on net that graviola can cure cancer and tumor.i feel lucky as im staying in Indonesia tropical country that most of trees and plants can grow well.then I start consume the fresh graviola tea twice a day.just pick the leaves at our back yard.a month later I did screening the size of cyst was reduce a was really good progress. until now me and my mom keep drinking the Graviola tea once a day.indeed this graviola leaves is great remedy.


      2. Garry

        My Dad keep using the Graviola Capsules 2 times a day, for more than a month. Hoping that it could reduce the size of his tumor. just want to know if Graviola could help if the cancer had spread to his whole axial skeleton as well as the bilateral pelvic bones. Anyone had same experience ?


  18. Garry

    Doctor told us that it might be a fault positive Pat scan which perform shortly after Chemo treatment. it might not be a spread of cancer. My dad is still under Chemo treatment.

      My Dad keep using the Graviola Capsules 2 times a day, for more than a month. Hoping that it could reduce the size of his tumor. ………….

      Today is my Dad’s last day with my family, he stopped breathing slowly and slowly and leave the world without letting us know.

      it’s been 2.5 years since diagnosis, besides Graviola, Asparagus was what he taken together with Chemo, He did not suffer from the side-effect that Chemo drug given to him and the Tumor did grow slowly. He did not suffer from massive pain that pancreatic cancer patient usually have.

      He takes Prosure powder to keep his body weight. Even for the pass two months.

      It’s a miracle. we have a wonderful time together, travelling, eating, taking photograph. Until the past 4 months, he started to have fever, could not walk by himself but still he can talk to everyone of us.

      Life is all about love, as soon as you love him, he will stay in your heart forever.
