Who should not take graviola without medical advice

You should consult with your doctor when you take graviola for any condition. Especially at risk are the following types of people. If in doubt, check with your medical care provider to evaluate what impact or side effects it may have on you:
  • If you have Parkinson's disease, graviola may make symptoms worse.
  • People with liver or kidney problems. Graviola may be toxic to the kidneys or liver with repeated use.
  • If you have high blood pressure or take blood pressure medications.
  • If you have diabetes.

Your doctor can advise you on individual risks and potential benefits, as well as answer any questions you may have about using graviola.

Coenzyme Q10 and Graviola

Coenzyme Q10 is known for increasing ATP or adenosine triphosphate. ATP provides metabolic energy to healthy cells. Graviola is known to reduce ATP supply to cancer cells. So CoQ10 may neutralize the effect of graviola. They should not be taken together. (Although, we have doctors that are recommending graviola, we have found that many doctors haven't even heard of it. What a shame.)
