Graviola is a small evergreen tree from the Amazon rainforest. Over the last fifty years scientists have been studying a group of chemicals called Annonaceous acetogenins that are only found in the family of plants to which graviola belongs. Different research groups have confirmed that these chemicals have antitumorous properties and selective toxicity against various types of cancer cells while not harming healthy cells. Acetogenins are powerful inhibitors of enzyme processes that are only found in the membranes of cancerous cells and this is why they are toxic to cancer cells but not to healthy cells. In 1997, Purdue University, in West Lafayette, Indiana reported that Annonaceous acetogenins “not only are effective in killing tumors that have resistant to anti-cancer agents, but also seem to have a special affinity for such resistant cells. lindavida

Bioactivity-directed fractionation of the leaves of Annona muricata L. (Annonaceae) resulted in the isolation of two new Annonaceous acetogenins, muricoreacin (1) and murihexocin C (2). Compounds 1 and 2 showed significant cytotoxicities among six human tumor cell lines with selectivities to the prostate adenocarinoma (PC-3) and pancreatic carcinoma (PACA-2) cell lines.

- The use of medicinal plants by the patients at the outpatient clinics of five health-care centers in Puerto Rico was evaluated. Medication histories were obtained for 802 patients ranging in age from two months to 91 years. The most frequent medical diagnosis was cardiovascular disease (54% of the patients). Respiratory and digestive disorders were the least frequent conditions, identified in only 9% and 6% of the cases, respectively. Medicinal plants were used by 57% of the population. Patients 65 years or older tended to use herbal remedies more often. Seven of the 11 most commonly used plants were used to treat gastrointestinal disorders. Other medicinal uses given were for sedation, sleep disorders, elevated blood pressure, kidney disorders, and respiratory ailments. The most frequently used plant was Citrus aurantium L. (sour orange), which was used as a sedative by 39% of the patients and for gastrointestinal disorders by 17%. Two potentially toxic plants, Solanum americanum and Annona muricata, were among the most commonly used plants. Medicinal plants were used widely by the outpatient population studied. Most herbs were used to treat self-limiting conditions but some were used to treat potentially serious medical problems, such as hypertension.
