Anti-cancer - Bacteria killer

SOURSOP

Scientific name: Annona muricata

Officially known as Annona muricata, soursop is native to South America and a fruit of many names. You might also hear it called guanabana, graviola or custard apple. On the outside, the fruit resembles an oversized avocado — if the avocado were covered with prickly spikes.

Despite its tough exterior, soursop is sweet at heart. Its white pulp is smooth and creamy with large black seeds. People sometimes compare its sweet-tart flavor to a blend of strawberries and apples.

Like many fruits, soursop is a healthy source of dietary fiber, vitamins and minerals. One cup (about 225 grams) of raw soursop contains:

  • Calories: 148.

  • Protein: 2.25 grams.

  • Dietary fiber: 7.42 grams.

  • Carbs: 37.8 grams.

  • Sugars: 30 grams.

 

Besides fiber, the fruit is a good source of nutrients:

  • Vitamin C.

  • Potassium.

  • Magnesium.

 

Soursop is also high in antioxidants, substances that protect cells from damage. Antioxidant-rich diets may help protect against diseases like heart disease or cancer.
