Even though people tend to rely on conventional medicines to treat health problems, natural remedies are even more potent and more effective than over-the-counter meds. However, the benefits of natural cures are usually kept in the dark since their effect can lower the profits of the pharmaceutical industry.
One such underrated natural cure is guanabana, a fruit that can fight off bacterial and fungal infections. It can also reduce high blood pressure and cure depression, nervous disorders, and stress. The leaves of Guanabana make an excellent tea which is great for people who have problems with insomnia. It’s important to mention that the seeds need to be removed prior to ingestion or juicing as they’re toxic.
Guanabana, also known as soursop or graviola, has the power to destroy cancerous cells. That is, studies have shown that the leaves, bark, and pulp of guanabana can destroy colon, prostate, liver, breast, and pancreatic cancer. Its taste is similar to the taste of citrus fruits. The pulp of guanabana is rich in vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B9, and C, as well as calcium, iron, sodium, magnesium, zinc, phosphorus, and potassium. Now, let’s take a look at how to prepare Guanabana beverage:
Push the pulp through a sieve or cheesecloth and then add a bit of honey. Afterwards, add milk or water and mix the content once more.
The juice can be used to prepare ice cream, sorbets, custards, and mousse. You can also mix it with an alcohol of your choosing to make a tasty cocktail.
