Sponsored: Does Ingles sell graviola/soursop?

Written by 

ingles dietitianQuestion: Does Ingles sell graviola/soursop? I have heard about it on Dr. Oz with supplements and tea made from it as an immune system booster and possible cure for cancer.

Answer: Graviola or soursop is a tropical fruit that is native to Mexico, Cuba, Central America and various Caribbean Islands. Ingles does not normally sell this fruit but we are always open to providing what our customers are looking for. 

In regards to graviola/soursop supplements or teas being an immune system booster or cancer cure… Experts caution that extracts or teas made from this fruit may act as a neurotoxin (kill brain cells) and may bring on Parkinson’s disease-like symptoms.

No studies on its effectiveness in humans as a cancer cure have been done.
