10 Health Benefits of Soursop

Soursop Benefit #2: Controls Blood Glucose Levels

While soursop has traditionally been used in the management of diabetes, it is only recently that studies have shown the fruit actually works. A study in rats found that those that were fed on soursop had lower blood sugar levels than those that were not.

According to the study, soursop works because some compounds in it likely inhibit the working of some enzymes responsible for breaking down complex carbohydrates. Soursop could also reduce blood sugar levels by inhibiting the absorption of glucose into the bloodstream. The study also found that consumption of soursop leaves reduced the effects of oxidative stress associated with diabetes. Soursop may also stimulate growth of insulin-producing cells within the pancreas.
