Graviola, also known as Soursop, can be found in such exotic places as the Amazon jungle and the Caribbean islands. Graviola has long been used around the world to support general well-being. And in recent decades, scientific research has uncovered even more exciting potential health benefits from Graviola.
The Graviola tree has large, dark green leaves and can grow to heights of 15 to 18 feet. The green, spiky, heart-shaped Graviola fruit has a unique flavor combining tart citrus notes with a sweet creaminess. The soft white flesh of this delicious fruit is favored for making juices, sherbets and other tasty desserts.
Nutrients & Applications:
The Graviola fruit is high in carbohydrates, particularly fructose. It also contains significant amounts of vitamin C, vitamin B1, and vitamin B2. Scientists have been studying the properties of Graviola since the 1940s and have discovered a unique set of phytochemicals called annonaceous acetogenins, which are only found in the annonaceae family (to which Graviola belongs).
Graviola may aid with maintaining healthy digestion and normal body temperature. It is also known for its mild tranquilizing and sedative properties.
