10 Health Benefits of Soursop (Guyabano)
If you haven’t tasted soursop, then you don’t know what you’re missing. Its heart-shaped green spiky exterior may probably don’t look appetizing. But when you eat its luscious creamy white flesh, your taste buds will feast on the delicious combination of strawberry and pineapple with sour citrus notes contrasting with an underlying rich flavor reminiscent of coconut or banana. In the Philippines, it is believed to be good against internal parasites. But whether it’s effective or not, the many nutrients its loaded with has so many health promoting goodness to offer.
For every cup (225 g) of pulp, here’s how nutritious it is.
1. Prevents UTI (Vitamin C-77% DV)
Soursop is an excellent source of vitamin C, a nutrient which increases the acidity level of urine, resulting in decreased number of harmful bacteria that may be present in the urinary tract. Other high vitamin C fruits include guava, kiwifruit, papaya and strawberries.
2. Prevents constipation (Fiber-30% DV)
Go natural! Let this fruit’s rich fiber content be the solution to problems in bowel movement.
3. Prevents leg cramps (Potassium-18% DV)
It contains half the potassium in bananas. Lack of potassium, together with magnesium, calcium and sodium (also known as electrolytes) in the body can cause muscle weakness and cramping.
4. Prevents water retention (Magnesium-12% DV)
Women who experience water retention before their monthly period would benefit from the soursop’s rich magnesium content. It may help alleviate this annoying premenstrual symptom.
5. Helps the body produce energy (Thiamin-11% DV)
Feeling a little tired? Eat soursop! It can supply the body a good amount of thiamin, the B vitamin which is needed in aerobic energy production, the process when oxygen is used to help convert sugar into usable energy.
6. Keeps bones healthy (Copper-10% DV)
It is loaded with the trace mineral copper. Calcium contributes only about 25% to the prevention of bone loss as magnesium, manganese, zinc and copper are also equally crucial for healthy bones. Zinc and copper boost the effectiveness of vitamin D, which promotes the absorption of calcium.
7. Boosts good cholesterol levels (Niacin-10%)
Worried about your cholesterol? Fresh fruits and veggies are the perfect choice! Soursop is a good source of niacin, a vitamin which studies show has significant benefits on levels of HDL, the good cholesterol
8. Prevents pregnancy complications (Folate-8% DV)
This spiky fruit contains folate. Studies have proven that folate intake during pregnancy prevents deficiency in pregnant women. A lack of this mineral during pregnancy may contribute to birth defects and pregnancy loss.
9. Helps prevent anemia (Iron-8% DV)
It can provide iron which prevents the common blood disorder anemia – a condition in which the blood lacks enough healthy red blood cells. RBC is responsible for the distribution of oxygen to the body tissues, giving the body energy.
10. Helps prevent migraines (Riboflavin-7% DV)
Headache? Try soursop! It has riboflavin. Several studies have shown that high riboflavin intake helps prevent migraines.

Could this be the cancer cure that drug makers does not want us to know?
The Guyabano tree, its fruit, leaves, bark is a miraculous natural cancer cell killer. 10,000 times stronger than Chemo.
Why are we not aware of this? It is 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 a prevention from time to time. The taste is not bad after all. Its 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 Guyabano.
How many people died in vain while this billion-dollar drug maker concealed the secret of the miraculous Guyabano tree?
If there ever was a single example that makes it dramatically clear why the existence of Health Sciences Institute is so vital to Americans like you, it’s the incredible story behind the Guyabano tree.
The truth is stunningly simple: Deep within the Asian and 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 Guyabano tree selectively hunts down and kills only cancer cells. It does not harm healthy cells! The amazing anti-cancer properties of the Guyabano tree have been extensively researched–so why haven’t you heard anything about it? If Guybano 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.
Guyabano (Annona Muricata)–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 Guyabano (Annona Muricata), a legendary
healing tree from the Asian and Amazon Rainforest.
Various parts of the tree–including the bark, leaves, roots, fruit and fruit-seeds–have been used for centuries by medicine men and native Indians in South America to treat heart disease, asthma, liver problems and arthritis. Going on very little documented scientific evidence, the company poured money and resources into testing the tree’s anti-cancerous properties—and were shocked by the results. Guyabano proved itself to be a cancer-killing dynamo.
But that’s where the Guyabano story nearly ended. The company had one huge problem with the Guyabano 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 Guyabano tree’s most powerful anti-cancer ingredients. If they could isolate and produce man-made clones of what makes the Guyabano 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 Guyabano came to a screeching halt. Even worse, the company shelved the entire project and chose not to publish the findings of its research!
Luckily, however, there was one scientist from the research team whose conscience wouldn’t let him see such atrocity committed. Risking his career, he contacted a company that’s dedicated to harvesting medical plants from the Amazon Rainforest and blew the whistle.
Miracle unleashed. When researchers at the Health Sciences Institute were alerted to the news of Guyabano, they began tracking the research done on the cancer-killing tree. Evidence of the astounding effectiveness of Guyabano–and its shocking cover-up–came in fast and furious.
The National Cancer Institute performed the first scientific research in 1976.. The results showed that Guyabano’s “leaves and stems were found effective in attacking and destroying malignant cells. Inexplicably, the results were published in an internal report and never released to the public.
Since 1976, Guyabano has proven to be an immensely potent cancer killer in 20 independent laboratory tests, yet no double-blind clinical trials–the typical benchmark mainstream doctors and journals use to judge a treatment’s value–were ever initiated.
A study published in the Journal of Natural Products, following a recent study conducted at Catholic University of South Korea stated that one chemical in Guyabano (Annona Muricata) was found to selectively kill colon cancer cells at “10,000 times the potency of (the commonly used chemotherapy drug) Adriamycin.
The most significant part of the Catholic University of South Korea report is that Guyabano (Annona Muricata) was shown to selectively target the cancer cells, leaving healthy cells untouched. Unlike chemotherapy, which indiscriminately targets all actively reproducing cells (such as stomach and hair cells), causing the often devastating side effects of nausea and hair loss in cancer patients.
A study at Purdue University recently found that leaves from the Guyabano tree killed cancer cells among six human cell lines and were especially effective against prostate, pancreatic and lung cancers.
