Properties and benefits Graviola leaves
Graviola, or annona muricata, is an evergreen tree found in the rainforests of Central and South America, generally 5 to 7 meters tall. The green, pungent fruit of Graviola (usually called Brazilian papaya) is widely consumed by native groups. The pulp of the fruit is described as custard-like, with a strawberry and pineapple-like flavor.
Different parts of the Graviola tree have medicinal properties, such as bark, leaves, roots, seeds, and fruits. Commonly treated conditions include asthma, liver and heart disease, arthritis, diarrhea and stomach ailments and most importantly to strengthen the immune system.
Graviola fruit is consumed in Mexico, Colombia and Brazil as a dessert or liquefied in the form of juice. Graviola fruit and its juice are consumed for the purpose of fighting worms and intestinal parasites, reducing fever and increasing the production of breast milk after childbirth. Inedible Graviola seeds are usually ground and used to treat parasites, infections, and lice. Graviola tea (made from the bark, seeds or root) is often consumed for its sedative and antispasmodic properties.
