Soursop comes from an evergreen tree scientifically known as the Annona muricata. Soursop fruits tastes like a mixture of strawberry and pineapple, with some addition citrus notes and sweetness. Besides the amazing deliciousness, soursop also provide multiple health benefits.

Anti-inflammation

People with joint pain or inflammation, particularly from conditions like gout or arthritis, may benefit from soursop’s anti-inflammatory properties. It’s believe that using a decoction of soursop as a topical treatment on the affected area can relieve the discomfort, speed up the healing and improve flexibility. This also works for respiratory problems such as coughing or congestion by clearing out the airways and soothe irritation. Soursop acts as a natural expectorant, helping you get rid of phlegm and mucus.

Healthy skin

The seeds of soursop fruit can be made into an effectve astringent, which is effective in reducing fine lines and wrinkles while reducing the appearance of age spots and blemishes. Frequent use of this astringent promotes skin health and protects you from bacterial and microbial infections. Eating soursop is another great way to get beautiful skin, thanks to the high levels of nutrients.

Cancer prevention

Thanks to its high concentration of antioxidants (acetogenins, quinolones, and alkaloids), soursop is believed to have the ability to prevent cancer and reduce the size of tumors. Research suggests a posibility that soursop can be used as an alternative to cancer treatment. Acetogenins found in soursop can cut off the blood supply to abnormal cellular growths and have been reported to improve breast, pancreatic, prostate, and lung cancers. Besides, soursop’s antioxidant activity is also helpful in boosting the immune system, improving overall health.

What to keep in mind

There’s not enough evidence to establish the recommended intake of soursop fruit or its extract. In general, one fruit has about 15 milligrams of annonacin, which is its most studied component. Meanwhile, one can of commercially prepared soursop nectar contains 36 milligrams. Because excessive consumption of alkaloid compounds may induce neurological symptoms similar to Parkinson’s disease, it’s best to eat soursop fruit in moderation. Also, never try to treat any health condition with soursop or its extract. As beneficial as soursop can be, it’s not the miracle cure for all diseases. In some cases, there is a chance that it may aggravate the condition or it can trigger an allergic response. Therefore, always check with your doctor first to find out if soursop is suitable for you and how to use it to reap the best benefits.
