Add Soursop to Your Diet

By Madhusudhan Tammisetti

Grown mostly throughout South and Central America and the Caribbean, soursop is regarded as an exotic delicacy outside of these regions.

It has a taste that is a mix of pineapple, strawberries, and various mixed citrus fruits, making it a one-of-a-kind eating experience.

Eating this fruit is not the only way to enjoy it. It is widely used in ice cream, juices, and other dishes, with different portions of the soursop fruit serving different purposes. Its flavor and practicality are just the tips of the iceberg. The main strength of the fruit lies in health benefits it provides.

Soursop's health benefits include cancer suppression, eye health support, inflammation reduction, diabetes management, promoting digestive and stomach health, killing intestinal parasites, reducing stress, relieving pain, relieving respiratory tract maladies, boosting immunity, and supporting liver health.

May Help Relieve Stress

When you're under a lot of stress, the body creates more adrenaline and cortisol. Although these hormones are necessary for your general health, large doses are not good for anybody. Persistently elevated cortisol levels have been linked to a variety of detrimental health impacts, including sleeplessness, anxiety, and heightened libido function. Soursop eating may assist in alleviating anxiety and promote peaceful sleep by buffering the harmful effects of cortisol rise.

Relieves Inflammation

Soursop's strong antioxidant concentration helps fight inflammation in cells. But it may lead to more direct inflammation in certain health conditions such as arthritis. Natives of South and Central America have long used the soursop plant's various parts to heal inflammation caused by snakebites, but this should not be misconstrued as an antidote.

May Kill Cancer

The soursop's prominent effect is that it's capable of killing cancerous cells, and lab tests confirm this killing effect on liver and breast cancer cells. While the effect is ascribed to the fruit extract, the leaves may decrease cancer cells with 80 percent effectiveness. Its effects are unique to cancer cells and do not affect healthy cells, making it a possible alternative to powerful chemotherapy medications.

May Kill Intestinal Parasites

Anti-helminthic drugs kill intestinal worms, and the leaf extract of soursop is one of them. The extract was shown to be capable of killing both adult and larval worms, which is something that few prescription anti-parasitic medications may accomplish. Though it still has to be standardized into a dosage that is allowed for this usage, the findings from tests so far have been positive.

Good for Eyes

Antioxidants abound in the soursop fruit, which aids in the reduction of body's oxidative stress. You may find Vitamin A, zinc, Vitamin E, Vitamin C, and other natural carotenoid components, which assist in keeping the eyes healthy. By slowing the progression of macular degeneration or the formation of cataracts, normal eye function may be preserved for a much longer period.
