Graviola contains a chemical in it that is associate with onset of atypical parkinsons, causing brain lesions in rats.
The key structures to these powerful chemicals are also thought to be anti cancer as well.
This particular molecule and its derivatives treat many anaerobic diseases such as parasites and bacteria.
The active structure to this molecule I am refering to may in fact be a quinone ring, which is an industrial oxidizer, (donates oxygen.) This may be exactly why these compounds treat diseases that hate oxygen,...no brainer here.
Quinones are also thought to be the active ingredient in pau de arco.
Also this same molecule in Graviola is very complex and also contains antioxidant properties, and also another part of this molecule contains just straight oxygen double bonded to carbon rings,...again more oxygen donating properties.
The problem with whole substances is that when we figure out how they work and what the active ingredient is,...we really don't know how much to dose that active ingredient. It's all guess work and hearsay.
Please, please, please,....read my cancer postings. Don't just guess what alternatives you want to try based upon say so!... Trial and error is not a great strategy when battling this disease.
I am a licensed nurse and I study and research all alternatives which is why I know a little about Graviola. I sponsor a research web sit.
