How annonaceous acetogenins in Soursop Plant Cures Cancer

“The research seeks to add value to the fruit so the least of it is wasted. We focus on acetogenins compounds because in Mexico, cancer is a disease that is increasing among the population and scientific research shows that the compounds found in this fruit can encapsulate tumors, but this depends on the [ how much is] amount consumed”

Tepic Institute of Technologi in Mexico Team leader, Montalvo González, on the anti-cancer properties of the Soursop plant (Annona muricata)

The Soursop plant (Annona muricata), also called the graviloa plant, is truly an interesting plant indeed.

Turns out that this plant may potentially be able to cure cancer, based on the true story of Yvonne Kirlew and her husband Raymond Kirlew as reported in the article “Soursop Stories Still Creating Stir”, published Saturday November 3, 2012, The Jamaica Gleaner.  

Soursoup Juice was used by Yvonne Kirlew's husband Raymond Kirlew to cure her from lymphatic cancer back in November 2009 as reported in the article “The Power Of Love (Part 3) - Raymond Kirlew 'Cures' Wife's Cancer With Soursop Leaves”, published Monday January 18, 2010 by Paul Williams, The Jamaica Gleaner.  
So how does one make Soursop Juice? And does it really cure lymphatic Cancer?

How Soursop Plant Cures Cancer – The Miracle plant that’s active against many different cancers

The Soursop plant (Annona muricata), also called graviola or guayabano, custard apple, guanabana, guyabano and Brazilian paw paw.

It is found in south and central America and Northern Africa, is an oval-shaped, dark green, fruit with white flesh and a prickly personality as noted in the article “Natural cancer remedies: sorting fact from fiction”, published 14 November 2015, Sunday Times Live.

A fruit that is a member of the Custard Apple family, it is the leaves and seeds of this plant that have made it famous. The leaves have be document to be an effective treatment or the following cancers:

1.      Breast
2.      Colon
3.      Lung
4.      Pancreatic
5.      Prostate

The seeds are also similarly endowed with anti-cancer properties, being effective against the following cancers:

1.      Breast
2.      Lung
3.      Oral

So what exactly is in the Soursop plant that is doing such a wonderful job fighting cancer?

Soursop’s Anti-cancer properties - annonaceous acetogenins active against many types of cancer

The Soursop plant (Annona muricata) fruit is known to be effective against prostate Cancer with the active ingredients being anonaceous acetogenins based on research done by Tepic Institute of Technologi in Mexico as reported in the article “Can Soursop Prevent, Treat Cancer?”, published September 15, 2015 By Angela Betsaida Laguipo, Youth Health Magazine.

The Cancer Research UK has also declared it to be 10,000 more effective against drug-resistant cancers such as breast and liver cancer cells as noted in the article “When Chemotherapy Fails Try Soursop Fruit”, published March 2, 2014 by Gabriela Motroc, Liberty Voice.

 Also research from the Purdue University’s School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences has also demonstrated the anti-cancer properties of the Soursop plant (Annona muricata) as reported in the article “They Said That This Fruit Was 10,000 Times Stronger Than Chemo. Here Is What They Didn’t Tell You”, published Tuesday November 10th, 2015, The Curacao Chronicle.

Their study, one of the biggest and most comprehensive, did further research into the anti-cancer compounds found in the Soursop plant (Annona muricata) called annonaceous acetogenins.

As with other previous research, they discovered that these compounds were able to inhibit the growth of Cancer cells will leaving normal sell alone. The annonaceous acetogenins was also effective against drug-resistant cancer cells.

So with so much promising anti-cancer properties and activity against so many cancers, why is this not yet available for prescription?

Soursop Cancer Cure awaiting Clinical Trials – Soursop Plant may be Cancer Panacea

Good to note that most of the research listed above was done on in vitro cells i.e. cancer cell in test tubes or on mice or other animals not on humans in clinical trials. So this is basically a POC (Proof of Concept) and not actual proof.

The annonaceous acetogenins may work different inside of the body and may even cause an immune response that would be unknown from these in-vitro testing. Also it may react negative in combination with other foods, with other chemotherapy drugs, ineffective in very low concentrations or toxic in high concentrations.

Still the research results thus far are promising and we await clinical trials in the next five (5) years to demonstrate these amazing cancer killing properties. Until then, you can boil Soursop tea from the leaves or make the Soursop plant (Annona muricata) into a nice drink from which you may derive some nutritional health benefits.

Btu if you believe the story of Yvonne Kirlew and her husband Raymond Kirlew cure for Lymphatic cancer, then self-experimentation with the Soursop plant (Annona muricata) may be the cure the Cancer that ails you.
