Graviola is thought to relieve temporary depression and nervous conditions. It acts as a nervine that strengthens the functional activity of the nervous system and performs as a relaxant and herbal tranquilizer, easing the discomforts of nervous disorders, stress and anxiety. It has been used in traditional medicine for its tranquilizing effects. One of its constituents, tryptophan, is an essential amino acid with a documented slee- inducing effect. In animal laboratory tests in 1997, the alkaloids in Graviola were found to exhibit significant antidepressive results, increasing the neurotransmitters, dopamine and norepinephrine. Dopamine is commonly associated with the pleasure system of the brain, providing feelings of enjoyment and the reinforcement to motivate us.
As an astringent, Graviola is believed to be effective in cases of diarrhea and dysentery. The antibacterial properties may also enhance the efficacy of Graviola in these situations.
