Today, we are going to talk about my most favorite fruit, the Jamaican soursop. I love this delicious morsel, especially as a drink. It can be so nice and creamy. The soursop has various health benefits that are not popularly known. It has:
- calcium, protein, iron, fiber, phosphorus, thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, ash, carbohydrates, ascorbic acid, fat, amino acids, tryptophan, calcium, methiodine, and lysine; vitamins A, b1, b2, and C
It also makes a delicious and healthy drink.
One you should incorporate into your health routine. For persons concerned about their caloric intake, the Jamaican soursop is great because it has up to 40 calories.
It is not only the soursop fruit that is usable but the soursop leaves are boiled for tea is often used by older and more knowledgeable folk. However, it is important to note that the seeds are not edible as they are toxic.
There are a number of illnesses that can be healed or aided in fast recovery times if the Jamaican soursop fruit is used. These include:
- coughs, nerves, indigestion, cholesterol, fevers, hypertension, urethritis, flu, haematuria, rheumatism, diabetes, leprosy, scars, swollen feet, inflammation, insomnia, catarrh, liver ailments, and eczema.
It is used as a diuretic as well.
As it relates to cancer, because the makeup of the Jamaican soursop is toxic, it combats the effects of cancer cells. The antiviral and anticancerous nature of the plant is presently and consistently being studied. Africans regularly bathe their feverish children with this to combat the high temperatures.
Truly the Jamaican Soursop is a national treasure and underrated for its curative purposes. Nature provides many such natural and organic elements to alleviate our illnesses. We need only to explore them; starting with the Jamaican Soursop.
