I tried Guanabana fruit last night for the first time. The one I ate looked a bit more like this:
They are pretty good. Not so good as to knock the Pitaya off my #1 new fruit spot, but sweet and juicy. I did a little google search on guanabana's and found this:
"The Guanabana Fruit has cancer curing abilities. The Sour Sop or the fruit from the Guanabana tree is a miraculous natural cancer cell killer 10,000 times stronger than Chemo. The taste is not bad after all. It’s completely natural and definitely has no side effects.."
Although this statement seemed a little too good to be true I did some more digging and it does seem like there is ainterest in the cancer fighting properties of the trees leaves. I also read that is is good for both bacterial and fungal infections, and is effective against internal parasites and worms, lowers high blood pressure and is used for depression, stress and nervous disorders. I'm in!
I like to try new fruits and I figure if they have health benefits as well, all the better. I think I'm going to buy another of these tomorrow and maybe try to make a shake with it. Now that the slow season is approaching I'm considering another juice fast followed by a much healthier diet.
