How to Make Guyabano Nectar and Guyabano Ade


Recently, Guyabano was reported as one of the fruits that provide miracles to cancer patients. In an article written by EDUARDO GONZALES, MD (See below for excerpts); he said

The idea that graviola (Guyabano) is an effective cancer fighter evidently stems from research (published in 2008) conducted at the Purdue University’s School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences on the unique substances known as annonaceousacetogenins that have been extracted from the graviola tree. The Purdue investigators found these substances to be potent inhibitors of cancer cells while leaving normal cells alone. They also found the compounds to be effective against drug-resistant cancer cells.
So lets make these recipes and be healthy. 


How to make Guyabano Nectar



1. Wash and peel guayabano. Remove core and seeds. Cut into small pieces. Mix two cups water for every three cups of pulp.
2. Pass guayabano pulp through a juice extractor or corn mill grinder. Add little by little so juice can be fully extracted. Strain through a stainless steel strainer.
3. Measure extracted pulp juice and add one cup of water for every two cups juice. Add one cup sugar for every 3" cups of pulp mixture.
4. Pass sugared mixture through a juice mixer or beat with a rotary egg beater.
5. Place the mixture in an enamel casserole or a stainless steel kettle, and cook until it simmers. Do not let it boil. Lower the heatand stir from time to time until mixture become thick.
6. Pour cooked mixture into tall tin cans while still hot, leaving 1/4 inch space on top of the mixture.
7. Seal the cans and place them in a pressure cooker for 15 minutes at 10 pounds pressure.Cool and label

How to Make Guayabano Ade

Ingredients:

1 kilo ripe guayabano
4 cups water
3/4 cup sugar
Calamansi juice

Procedure:

1. Wash and peel fruits. Remove the core and seeds. Then cut pulp into small pieces.
2. Heat in four cups water. Cool. Strain mixture through a clean cheese cloth into a pitcher, then squeeze the juice.
3. Add sugar and enough clamansi juice or make the mixture a little sour. Serve with ice cubes. Add more sugar if desired.

MEDICINAL VALUE

The guayabano fruit is used as a cure for cough, scurvy and fever. It contains Vitamin A, calcium, phosphorous and rich with vitamin B and C. It also contains 11.62 percent sugar, mostly glucose and fructose.

The gree fruits and seeds can induce vomiting, remedy dysentery and arrest secreation or bleeding. The sap of the young leaves may be applied directly on pimples to induce suppuration. The sap is also considered parasiticidal. An alcoholic extract of the leaves, when distilled with steam, yields a small amount of essential oil. The portion of alcoholic extract which is soluble in water contains a large amount of potassium chloride together with dextrose tannis, amorphous products, and a small amount of an alkaloid substance which could not be crystallized. The leaves and roots also cure colic and convulsions.

Guyabano: Miracle Cure For Cancer?

By EDUARDO GONZALES, MD

(News article truncated by me).


I was sent an email by a cancer-survivor friend of mine who attributes her survival from breast cancer to her regular intake of guyabano juice. About eight years earlier, she was diagnosed with stage I cancer of the breast for which she underwent surgery and chemotherapy. She started drinking guyabano juice after her chemotherapy and has since credited the fruit, rather than her doctors, for her apparent cure.

When I received her email, out of curiosity, I did a library and Internet search for guyabano. I was amazed with what I found out and wrote an article, which was later published in this column, about the alleged “miraculous properties” of guyabano. Nothing much has changed regarding this issue since, so most of what I am going to write herewith I have told readers before.

Folklore attributes some medicinal properties to guyabano. Supposedly, its unripe fruit can relieve diarrhea, its leaves can eliminate worms when taken internally and heal wounds when applied topically, and a concoction of its roots can reduce fever. Traditional medicine does not ascribe anti-cancer properties to guyabano but there are numerous web sites that promote graviola as an anti-cancer remedy.

The idea that graviola is an effective cancer fighter evidently stems from research (published in 2008) conducted at the Purdue University’s School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences on the unique substances known as annonaceousacetogenins that have been extracted from the graviola tree. The Purdue investigators found these substances to be potent inhibitors of cancer cells while leaving normal cells alone. They also found the compounds to be effective against drug-resistant cancer cells.

But these studies were conducted in vitro, i.e., conducted on cancer cells in test tubes. These are a long way from clinical trials that determine the efficacy and safety of these compounds in people with cancer. In fact, I have not found any human study on graviola and cancer.
