In the past few months we’ve discussed some of the amazing benefits of the tropical Graviola fruit. With powerful antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and carbohydrates, Graviola or Soursop is a superfruit known to strengthen the immune system, support healthy cell formation and help protect the body from harmful bacteria and free radicals. One of the best and most effective ways to get the benefits of the Graviola fruit is through Graviola Leaf Powder Tea, also known as Soursop Tea.
Graviola has a particularly potent blend of nutrients that make it so beneficial and healthful. If you recall from Nutrition 101, our bodies use carbohydrates for energy. Like many fruits, Graviola is especially high in fructose, the natural fruit sugar. Additionally, Graviola is rich in Vitamin C, Vitamin B1 and Vitamin B2. Vitamin C is an incredible immune boosting antioxidant that plays a part in almost every part of the human body. Vitamin B1 (thiamine) and Vitamin B2 (riboflavin) help us burn fat and sugar for energy, produce hormones and repair DNA. These essential vitamins are especially important for the brain, helping improve mood, retaining memory, reducing anxiety and depression and even lowering risk of migraines.
While much research is still being done on the benefits of Graviola, it’s being studied for its potential to help treat several common and life-threatening diseases. As an alternative medicine, Graviola has shown promising signs of reducing blood sugar levels in those suffering from diabetes, as an anti-viral for people with herpes and as a supplemental treatment for diseases caused by inflammation, including Parkinson’s, asthma, osteoporosis and cancer . Some initial studies show Graviola has been able to attack cancerous cells that are multi-drug resistant. Many additional studies must be done, including human trials, before the results will be conclusive. But these are all very positive signs for an already nutritious herbal superfood.
So why wouldn’t you want to drink up these nutrients? Graviola Leaf Powder Tea or Soursop Tea is easy to make. You can drink it plain or add a variety of flavors to spice it up. Simply soak 1 tablespoon of Graviloa Leaf Powder in hot water for about 10 minutes. Then strain the powder and enjoy your tea. Add fruit flavors like freshly squeezed lemon, grapefruit or peach to give your tea a tangy flavor. Try it with almond milk and cinnamon for a more indulgent pallet.Graviola is one of the most nutritious superfoods on our planet.
