I’m not sure if Americans are aware of a fruit that is called GUYABANO. It’s not the best seller among fruits and you don’t get to see it being made available at the supermarket. But it is one of the healthiest fruits I must say, considering the benefits we get from a fruit dubbed as the “miracle fruit.” Yes it is a miracle fruit because it can cure CANCER.
Cancer is a disease characterized by “out-of-control cell growth.” The medical society has discovered that there are over 100 different types of cancer and each is classified by the type of cell that is initially affected. Cancer mostly strikes the cervix, prostrate, breast and lungs. And the major causes of cancer is believed to be a combination of genetic factors and outside carcinogens like tobacco, viruses, infection, vinyl chloride and inappropriate diet. How you take care of your health, the food you eat and your kind of lifestyle matters in dealing with Cancer. Thus it is very important to stay healthy and eat healthy food.
The “Guyabano” is a very healthy fruit. It is the fruit from the Graviola tree that is a miraculous natural cancer cell killer said to be 10,000 times stronger than Chemo. That is why I am here to let you know that a glass of some sour sop juice from time to time is not only healthy and good for your diet but it also prevents cancer. The taste is not that bad and it’s completely natural. It definitely has no side effects as well. That is why if you have space, I suggest you plant one in your garden because the other parts of the tree are as useful as the fruit itself. And do you know that the Graviola tree–including the bark, leaves, roots, fruit and fruit-seeds – have been used for centuries by medicine men and native Indians in South America to treat heart disease, asthma, liver problems and arthritis. That is very interesting, right?
Now, because the fruit is a bit sour, it might not appeal to you. But I want to share with you how I make this sour-tasting fruit into a smooth and luscious shake that you cannot resist. This is a very good alternative for the usual fruit shakes we order in snack bars and restaurants or food shops. And it’s very easy and convenient to prepare. For a single blending, good for about 3 tall glasses, you will need about 2 cups “guyabano” flesh, peeled and seed removed, 1/2 cup skimmed milk, ¼ cup honey, 2 cups ice cube and 1 cup cold water.
Preparing it is as simple as drinking it afterwards. All you just have to do is put everything into the blender and pulse it a couple of times until a smooth, rich and creamy consistency is attained. Pour it into your glass and viola; you have a healthy, cancer-preventing fruit shake that fits your diet and healthy lifestyle. And it doesn’t even cause you that much to prepare it.
So, the next time you buy your fruits and vegetables at the supermarket look for a guyabano fruit and take 2-3 pieces, that should be enough for a week. If it’s not available in the supermarket you can check on local Asian stores or check its availability online as well.
