Are you looking for superior antioxidant foods?
In the Amazon River flood plains between Brazil and Peru grows a shrubby small tree – Myrciaria dubia- usually called Camu-Camu. When the fragrant , white waxy petals drop this tree grows small purple-red colored fruit that looks like a cherry. Among plant experts , camu-camu is valued for its antioxidant, astringent , antiviral, anti-inflammatory , emollient and analgesic and nutritional characteristics and is also a source of protein, phosphorus , iron, niacin , riboflavin, thiamin , calcium, beta-carotene , and three amino acids. It’s an abundant source of flavinoids.
Those who use Camu-camu for its vitamin C have found that only 1-2 grams of this naturally present vitamin C is a superior immune system strengthener than mega doses of commercially available synthetic vitamin C . Camu-camu is around two to three percent Vitamin C based on the fresh weight and that’s an unusually high concentration and demonstrates antioxidant value . And, as you are probably aware, antioxidants are vital for my two other favorite “antis” anti- inflammatory and anti-aging.
Camu-camu is now being studied to assess its mood balancing components . As published in the Clinician’s Handbook of Natural Healing (1998) by Gary Null, Ph.D. Camu-camu is number two in terms of the potency of the chemical compounds it contains for its mood balancing properties. While the connection has not been completely examined , it seems that Camu-camu might provide nutritional help for the brain’s own manufacturer of mood balancing compounds . And , findings have been published linking vitamin C and 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. It’s the highest natural source of vitamin C in the world. And it’s not just one isolated chemical (ascorbic acid), it’s the full symphony of protective antioxidants. My research on this herb , 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’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.”
