Soursop Leaf Extract Relieves Fibromyalgia Symptoms in Mice, Study Shows
Supplementation with an extract of soursop leaves alleviated pain symptoms, depression, and anxiety in a mouse model of fibromyalgia, researchers report.
Their study, “Diets supplemented with Annona muricata improve the symptoms of fibromyalgia,” was published in the journal PharmaNutrition.
Fibromyalgia symptoms such as chronic muscular pain, depression, and anxiety can affect patients’ health-related quality of life.
The medicinal properties of soursop extract are well-reported in the literature, according to the study’s authors. Its benefits in easing symptoms of inflammation, pain, diabetes, infections, and cancer have been validated in laboratory tests. However, its role in relieving fibromyalgia symptoms has not been very well-explored.
Soursop is the common name of the Annona muricata L, a tree native to the central and South America, found especially the Amazon region.
