Camu-Camu – Have you ever heard of this?

Are you looking for superior antioxidant foods?

In the Amazonian flood plains between Brazil and Peru lives a shrubby tree – Myrciaria dubia- usually called Camu-Camu. When the pleasant smelling , waxy white flowers fall to the ground, it grows small purple-red colored fruit similar in appearance to a cherry. Among herbalists, camu-camu is valued for its astringent, antioxidant, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, analgesic and emollient and nutritional characteristics. As if that isn’t enough, it’s also a source of protein, phosphorus, iron, niacin, thiamin riboflavin, beta-carotene, calcium, and 3 amino acids. It is an abundant source of flavinoids.

Those who take Camu-camu because of its vitamin C have found that just one to two grams of this natural source is a better immune system supporter than mega doses of commercial synthetic products. Camu-camu is around two to three percent Vitamin C based on the fresh weight and that’s an unusually high concentration and testifies to its antioxidant food value. And antioxidants are vital when it comes to my 2 other favorite “antis” antiaging and anti-inflammatories .

Camu-camu is currently being researched to assess its emotion balancing properties. As appearing in the Clinician’s Handbook of Natural Healing (1998) – Gary Null, Ph.D. Camu-camu is second in terms of its potential mood balancing properties. While these connections have not been completely researched, it seems that Camu-camu could offer a nutritional boost to the brain’s own manufacturing of mood balancing chemicals. Additionally, research has been published linking vitamin C with a higher level of serotonin.

Dr Mike Adams, (who’s called the Health Ranger) said this about Camu-Camu:
“I’ll tell you a secret about Camu. Camu-camu is the highest natural source of vitamin C in the world. And it’s not just ascorbic acid, it’s the full symphony of protective antioxidants. My research, based in part of the works of Dr. James Duke, leads me to the conclusion that camu-camu crosses the blood-brain barrier and offers extraordinary protection to the nervous system. There is no question in my mind that this product can drastically reduce eye disorders, including macular degeneration, as well as protect the brain and nervous system from degenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and dementia.”

Camu-camu is just one of the natural antioxidant foods found in AIO- Premium Cellular Health.
