What are soursop leaves used for?
Annona Muricata is also known as soursop or graviola
Soursop leaves are grown on a tree by the same name, although it is also known by the name graviola (that's what we call it here in the Virgin Islands) and guanabana. Scientists refer to it as Annona Muricata.
The leaves are air-dried and used to make tea, which is lime green in color and tastes a bit like green tea with a hint of vanilla.
Soursop tea is famously used to treat cancer. And there is good reason. That's because there is lab research that shows that a phytochemical in the leaves, stems and bark, as well as the soursop fruit, has anti-tumor properties that is known to shrink cancer cells, and yet leave healthy cells alone.
Cancer patients who want to use the tea in their fight against the disease should consume the tea three times per day before meals.
Besides cancer, soursop tea is also used as a natural remedy for:
- Anti bacterial
- Soothes stomach and digestive upsets
- Consumed for colds and congestion (anti-mucus)
- Use on skin for blemishes and other skin issues
