RIO AMAZON Graviola is becoming increasingly well known as a source of antioxidants called annonaceous acetogenins. Graviloa tea is prepared from the leaves of the plant.
Graviola (Annona muricata) is a small evergreen tree, 5 to 6m high, with large, dark green, glossy leaves that is native to the Amazon rainforest and other tropical areas of the Americas. It produces a large, heart shaped edible fruit that is 15 to 23 cm in diameter, is yellow-green in colour, and has white flesh inside. In Brazil, the juice is a popular drink, and is known as Guanábana.
RIO AMAZON is inspired by the wonderful herbs which grow in abundance all over the Amazon rainforest. These herbs have evolved unique chemical compounds and have traditionally been used by the people who live in the region, who believe they offer a variety of health benefits.
