Antioxidant Foods- Camu Camu

Are you looking for superior antioxidant foods?

In the flood plains of the Amazon between Brazil and Peru grows a bushy small tree – Myrciaria dubia- better known as Camu-Camu.  When the fragrant , white waxy petals fall this tree grows small purple-red colored fruit that looks like a cherry. Among herbalists , camu-camu is valued for its antioxidant, astringent , anti inflammatory, antiviral , analgesic and emollient and nutritional characteristics and additionally is a source of phosphorus, protein , iron, niacin , riboflavin, thiamin , calcium, beta-carotene , and 3 different amino acids. It’s a rich source of flavinoids.

Those who take Camu-camu because of  its vitamin C have found that just 1-2 grams of this naturally present vitamin C is a superior immune system booster than large doses of commercial synthetic products . Camu-camu is about two to three percent Vitamin C by fresh weight, which is an unusually high concentration and testifies to antioxidant food value .  And, as you are probably aware, antioxidants are important when it comes to my two other favorite ”antis” antiaging and anti-inflammatories .

Camu-camu is currently being researched to evaluate its mood balancing properties . As published in the Clinician’s Handbook of Natural Healing (1998) by Gary Null, Ph.D. this fruit is second relative to its potential mood balancing properties. While the connection has not been completely examined , it seems that Camu-camu could provide nutritional support for your brain’s own manufacturer of mood balancing compounds .  Additionally, findings have been released connecting vitamin C with an increased 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 conclude that camu-camu crosses the blood-brain barrier and offers extraordinary protection to the nervous system. There’s 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.”
