Irish Moss and Soursop Benefits
Seaweed, including Irish moss specifically, is one of the best plant sources of omega-3 fatty acids. These fats are critical for a healthy heart. In fact, getting enough omega-3 fatty acids is connected to a lower risk of heart disease, blood clots, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure. Sea Moss is also a “chelator”.: a binding agent that suppresses chemical activity by forming chelates. Chelation is a type of bonding of ions and molecules to metal ions. It involves the formation or presence of two or more separate coordinate bonds between a polydentate ligand and a single central metal atom. These ligands are called chelants, chelators, chelating agents, or sequestering agents.
What that means in simple English is that sea moss has a chemical called ligands that bind to the heavy metals in your body that cause sickness and scrub it away like a Brillo pad does a pan basically cleaning your cells. The chelating agents in sea moss remove toxic metals from the body. They are also being studied in the treatment of cancer. The heavy metals most commonly associated with poisoning of humans are lead, mercury, arsenic and cadmium. Some foods that we think of as healthy are actually slowly hurting us. The most common foods with heavy metals include: Fish: Unfortunately, all fish have some level of mercury. Brown rice contains up to 80% more arsenic than white rice. and leafy green vegetables: Eat your veggies but in moderation.
Soursop (Graviola) comes from a tree in the rain forests of Africa, South America, and Southeast Asia. It is a common food there. Soursop is high in vitamin C, an antioxidant known to boost immune health. The vitamin strengthens your immune system, improving its ability to defend against pathogens.

Two types of soursop are distinguished, the sweet variety that is eaten raw (guanaba azucaron) and the very sour (guanaba acida) used for the preparation of drinks.

So, individuals with high blood pressure can benefit greatly from the consumption of soursop.
Soursop Identifies abnormal cells like cancer cells. Regulates abnormal cell growth and destroys the cells through cytotoxic effects in cancer. Cytotoxicity refers to the ability of a chemical to kill cells. Soursop is considered a preventive measure rather than a cure, extracts can kill some types of liver and breast cancer cells. Especially cells that are resistant to some chemotherapy drugs. A more recent study showed that soursop pulp extract has an effect on prostate cancer cells as well. Soursop can be taken as part of a normal diet but not in excess as it can affect the nerves in large quantities over time. Studies have shown that overdoing it with soursop, whether it's the fruit, drinking tea made from the leaves, or taking soursop supplements, can kill nerve cells and cause nervous system disorders similar to Parkinson's disease, So this is something that must be eaten in moderation not more than one or two cups a day...People with nerve problems or liver and kidney conditions should avoid this fruit or tea altogether.
