Description

Annona muricata | Soursop – Guanabana

 

A family from the Tsáchila tribe in Ecuador carefully selects our leaves. They plant and cultivate guanabana trees for their household’s consumption on their almost 2000 hectares reserve.

Native Use

The Tsáchila tribespeople in Ecuador traditionally eat the Annona muricata fruit. They believe the leaves help with different ailments. They also consider that regularly drinking tea from the leaves can help to regulate sugar blood levels and reduce back pain. They believe too that the leaves can protect you from diseases associated with uric acid, such as gout. When you rub it directly on the skin it may help with eczema and rheumatism.

Some people promote soursop (sometimes as “graviola”) as an alternative cancer treatment. There is, however, no medical evidence that it is effective. Some studies have suggested that graviola leaves could help in anti-aging treatments and control of bad cholesterol.

Annona muricata is the scientific name for the plant also known as Soursop, Graviola or Guanabana. It is a member of the Annonaceae family. It is a broadleaf, flowering, evergreen tree with a delicious fruit. It is native to the tropical regions of the Americas.
