How Does Guyabano Help Fight Cancer?
During 1970’s, the National Cancer Institute began funding Dr. Jerry McLaughlin at Purdue University to search for botanical substances that contain anti-cancer potential. He found out that the acetogenin compounds of the Annonaceae family had the most anti-cancer potential.
What is acetogenin?
Acetogenins are active compounds that affect the production of ATP in the mitochondria of the cell. ATP is our cells’ energy production center and, hence, our body’s major source of energy. Acetogenins modulate the production of ATP.
How does acetogenin help fight cancer?
- It stops the production of cellular energy in abnormal cells, while hearty cells remain unaffected.
- It inhibits blood cells and vessels growing near the abnormal cells, preventing the transporting and metastasizing of cancer cells.
- It enhances the effectiveness of common medical treatments for cancer.
- It reduces ATP levels (the amount of materials available for cellular division).
What is the connection of acetogenin and guyabano?
Guyabano (soursop) is a member of the Annonaceae family. Dr. Jerry McLaughlin and his team found and isolated over 400 acetogenins from the Annonaceae family. And of the 400 acetogenins, 30 were from the guyabano (soursop).
There are also many studies that showed guyabano’s effectiveness in fighting cancer. Further, just a cup of guyabano (soursop) is an excellent source of fiber, vitamins and minerals.
Unfortunately, guyabano (soursop) only grows in places with warm climates. Getting hold of its fruit, leaves, bark and roots could be a challenge for most people. This is why My Jinga Juice Incorporated made Jinga Juice Wheatgrass and Guyabano with Stevia. Jinga Juice is made of pure, powdered guyabano (soursop) and wheatgrass so you get the goodness of guyabano in a very convenient powdered form. All you have to do is mix the Jinga Juice sachet in a glass of cold water.
