Now Foods Graviola
Now Foods Graviola is a dietary supplement advertised as an aid in supporting healthy cell growth and functioning. Its core ingredient is the extract of Graviola (leaf), a tree which grows in the Amazon jungle and in some parts of the Caribbean islands.
According to the manufacturer, Now Foods Graviola promotes a calming general state and helps maintain a positive mood, although it does not cite any research or clinical trials to support these claims.
The supplement is manufactured and marketed by New Foods, an American company with an experience of over 40 years in the health foods and nutritional supplements business sector. The company claims it is one of the best-selling brands in the health food sector and is leader in its field.
Now Foods Graviola Ingredients
Graviola includes the following ingredients: Soursop (Graviola), Gelatin (capsule), Magnesium Stearate and Silica.
Graviola tree’s different parts (bark, leaves, root, seeds and fruits) have been traditionally used in the natural medicine of the tropic regions. Although insufficient evidence of its effectiveness exists, Graviola is currently used in the treatment of indigestion, coughs, relaxation, bacterial and parasitic infections and even certain types of cancer.
It is very important to understand at this point that systematic research in humans is in its incipient stages even though results look promising. Studies made suggest that the bark and leaves of the Graviola tree contain a colorless substance called Hydrocyanic acid considered poisonous. Some studies revealed that the Annonacin contained by Graviola may have a connection in the development of atypical Parkinson’s disease or might make the condition worse. The plant is therefore considered unsafe.
The recommended dose of Now Foods Graviola is two capsules taken 3 to 4 times daily as needed. The supplement is not recommended to patients suffering from neurodegenerative disorders or Parkinson’s disease, taking hypertensive or MAO inhibitor medications.
