Overview

Soursop, also known as Graviola (Annona muricata), is a small deciduous tropical evergreen fruit tree, belonging to the Annonaceae family, and is widely grown and distributed in tropical and subtropical regions around the world. The aerial parts of graviola have several functions: the fruits have been widely used as food confectionaries, while several preparations, especially decoctions of the bark, fruits, leaves, pericarp, seeds, and roots, have been extensively used in traditional medicine to treat multiple ailments including cancers by local communities in tropical Indonesia, Africa and South America.

Anti-Cancer Benefits

Cancer is the second leading cause of mortality worldwide. Over 10 million new patients are diagnosed with cancer annually with over 6 million associated deaths, representing roughly 12% of worldwide mortality. The occurrence of new cancer cases is expected to grow by about 70% over the next two decades and estimated to reach over 15 million new cases diagnosed annually by the year 2020. This rapid increase is due to both an aging and growing population, along with carcinogens, infections, genetic mutations, hormones, immune conditions, and the adoption of behavioral and dietary risk factors, such as smoking, unhealthy diet, physical inactivity, and environmental pollutants. Several compounds in Annona muricata have been shown to adversly effect various cancers and tumor cell growth.

Parasitic Nematode Relief

Parasitism attributed to nematodes is a worldwide problem that can negatively affect livestock, human health and plant growth. In animal breeding it can result in stunted growth, lower herd weight gain and can negatively influence meat quality. Sometimes, depending on the severity of the infection, it may lead to animal death. Regarding plant production, nematodes are highlighted for causing major economic losses to agriculture. The most widespread form of nematode control is that performed with synthetic anthelmintics. However, their improper use has favored the selection of resistant strains, besides being toxic and impactful to the environment. In the last decade there has been an increasing search for new methods of controlling animal and plant parasitic nematodes, using methods less toxic to the environment and to people. Among these, the search for compounds from natural sources stands out. Compounds in Annona muricata have been shown to be an effective nematicidal.
