For more information on this fruit please click on the link on the bottom of this page!With zero saturated fat, cherimoyas are cholesterol-free, high in fiber, iron, and niacin, and contain powerful cytotoxins that are said to combat cancer, malaria, and human parasites. They’re high in vitamin C, a natural antioxidant that helps the body resist infection, as well as a good source of B vitamins, notably vitamin B6 (pyridoxine), which provides 20 percent of the daily recommended value.

Cherimoya provides high potassium levels, which helps control heart rate and blood pressure. Furthermore, it contains more minerals weight per weight than a lot of more common fruits, such as apples, because of its copper, magnesium, iron and manganese content.

There’s been discussion about the fruit’s ability to manufacture GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid ), a neurochemical in the brain sometimes known as “the euphoric amino acid” because of its calming and headache pain-easing effects. Many people have been known to enjoy the fruit for that reason as well as for the flavor.

In rural Mexico, a couple of cherimoya seeds are sometimes roasted, peeled, and pulverized into a powder, and mixed with water or milk to induce vomiting. Mixed with grease, the powder is said to kill lice, as well as cure parasitic skin infections.
