SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH ON THE CASHEW APPLE

Recently, there have been scientific reports about the medicinal properties of the cashew apple juice as follows :

  1. The cashew nut is rich in Anacardic acid which helps stop the formation of breast cancer (BT-20 Breast Carcinomas).
  2. The cashew nut contains "cadol", a substance which effectively blocks the growth of Hela Epithelioid Cervix Carcinoma Cells in the vagina. Moreover, it acts as an antiseptic and kills worms.
  3. The phenol compounds in the cashew nut can slow down the release of "tyrosinase" enzyme which is involved in the formation of the dark pigment melanin causing freckles and blemishes.
  4. The pulpy part of the cashew apple is used to produce the juice. In the form of juice, it can relieve scurvy due to its high level of vitamin C (up to 20,000 ppm or five times more than oranges), which is a substance capable of capturing free radicals.
  5. Since the cashew is rich in vitamin C and mineral salts, it is used as a coadjutant in the treatment of premature aging of the skin.
