Do Natural Prostate Remedies Work?

Monday, 09 Sep 2013 11:14 AM

Question: I've heard that Graviola is effective in slowing down the growth of prostate cancer. Is this true or false? Are there other natural remedies that are good for the prostate?


Dr. Hibberd's answer:

Graviola — also known as Annona muricata, paw paw, or guanabana — is a fruit tree native to North and South America and the Caribbean. The species native to South America is called the guanabana tree, and is used in drinks, teas, ice creams, and marmalades.

There appear to be components of some species of this plant that inhibit the growth of some cancer cells, notably prostate cancer cells. But much more research must be done on the promise of this and many other botanicals with bioactive components before they can be recommended widely to prevent and treat prostate cancer.
