The Natural Vitamin-C Powerhouse For Peak Mental Function and Nervous System Protection
There's a lot of attention focused on super foods these days.
People are interested in foods that can give them high-density nutrition, protect them from chronic disease, and even help reverse disease.
One of the best (but little-known) super foods is actually a super fruit, and like many super fruits, it comes from the rain-forest regions of our planet.
This one in particular comes from Peru; it's one of the most nutrient-dense foods and offers considerable disease-prevention benefits.
This super fruit is called camu-camu, or the camu-berry.
Camu-Camu (Myrciaria Dubia) is a low-growing shrub found throughout the Amazon Rain-forest, mainly in swampy or flooded areas.
The plants bear round orange-red colored fruit which remind me of cranberries and have recently attracted world-wide attention.
For years the scientific community has known that camu-berries provide the richest and most bio-available source of vitamin-C on the planet.
Vitamin-C, as you may know, has many uses for preventing chronic disease.
Natural (not synthetic) vitamin-C is an antioxidant that prevents free radical damage to the DNA of the cells throughout your body, which helps in the prevention of cancer and heart disease (among other health problems).
Vitamin-C also prevents colds and even the flu.
It's a huge immune system booster and an all-around power-packed vitamin, but only in its full-spectrum natural form.
There's no food on the planet with a higher concentration of vitamin-C than the camu-berry.
How high a concentration?
Let's consider this: oranges are generally known for their high vitamin-C content, right?
Well, oranges generally have around 1,000 ppm of vitamin-C.
Sometimes they can have as high as 3,000 or 4,000 ppm, but that's unusual, especially given the way they're commercially grown today.
The camu-berry can have concentrations as high as 50,000 ppm or about 2 g of vitamin-C per 100 g of fruit.
That means that the camu-berry provides 50 times more vitamin-C than an orange (on an ounce-for-ounce basis).
Camu-camu is well known to be a protective food for cataracts.
It doesn't mean that the camu-berry is an all-powerful, magical cure for every patient suffering from cataracts, but this is a super fruit that certainly should be investigated by anyone who is suffering from such condition.
Camu also protects against glaucoma, a debilitating disease of the eye.
The camu-berry is 100 percent natural and based on powerful high-density nutrition.
It has absolutely no negative side effects, and it certainly doesn't carry the dangers of prescription drugs.
In other words, it won't cause heart attacks and strokes like many prescription drugs do, and it's less expensive than most prescription drugs.
Protecting the Brain
At the same time the camu-berry is protecting your eyes from degenerative disease, it's also protecting your brain from neuro-degenerative disorders such as dementia and Alzheimer's.
In fact, if you're interested in anti-aging, or if you're getting up in years and you want to make sure you have optimal brain performance for the rest of your life, the camu-berry is one of the most important nutritional supplements you can consume.
Think of it as an insurance policy against neuro-degenerative diseases.
Obviously, it's not the only thing you can consider; there are many other important nutritional strategies for boosting brain performance.
For example, eating raw nuts and seeds on a daily basis is hugely important for the healthy functioning of your brain and nervous system.
You can not function at a high level of performance without healthy oils and plant-based fats in your body; you need those omega-3 fatty acids and oils from raw nuts and seeds.
It's a good idea to consume cod liver oil on a regular basis too, but most importantly, you need natural, full-spectrum vitamin-C.
Through research, we've learned that camu camu is antiviral, it helps kill viruses that could threaten your immune system and is a powerful protective agent against colds and the flu.
It's anti-arthritic, so it can help reduce inflammation, which tends to ease the pain of arthritis.
And it's anti-atherosclerotic, which means it can help prevent atherosclerosis, or the buildup of plaque in the arteries.
Plaque in the arteries leads to serious heart disease and eventually heart attacks.
It can help prevent the buildup of plaque to protect you from the foods you may be consuming that tend to cause the buildup of that plaque (such as fried foods or processed foods made with hydrogenated oils).
Camu-camu is also known as an antidepressant.
This isn't surprising, given that depression is often the result of a suppressed or poorly functioning nervous system.
Of course, depression can have many causes, but the most common is actually a malnourished nervous system.
Depression is not, as conventional medicine claims, a chemical imbalance in the brain that has to be corrected with prescription drugs.
It's typically just a nutritional deficiency that can be corrected through diet by eating super natural foods.
The camu-berry is one of the natural strategies you can use to reverse depression, even serious depression.
Camu-berry is also documented as being anti-gingivitic, which means it helps fight gingivitis, the gum disease that can affect dental health.
And, camu is described as anti-hepatitic, meaning it protects against liver disorders, including liver disease and liver cancer.
This is not a surprising effect, given that antioxidants are protective of the liver in general.
Being a potent antioxidant, it can help support the liver's efforts in detoxifying many of the chemicals to which you're exposed.
The camu-berry has also been shown to promote fertility.
Infertility is on the rise in the United States, where as many as one out of four couples can no longer conceive.
That's a frightening statistic.
Part of what's wrong is the fact that people are not getting good nutrition, and they aren't protecting themselves against the toxins that they're exposed to through their foods and their environment.
The camu-berry can help protect you against those toxins, and subsequently boost the chances of conception in both men and women.
There's also evidence of the camu-berry having an anti-inflammatory effect.
Inflammation not only affects arthritis, it also affects heart health.
In fact, inflammation and the C-reactive proteins are a hot topic now in medical literature.
People are more aware of how inflammation is a systemic problem, meaning it affects the entire body (and all the organs in it).
Vitamin-C is an excellent anti-inflammatory supplement, and when you get high-density, full-spectrum vitamin-C from camu-berries, you get one of the best anti-inflammatory medicines from nature.
Once again, vitamin-C is not a single, simple magic-bullet solution to inflammation, but it can be part of an overall anti-inflammatory nutritional strategy that includes healthy oils, herbs like curcumin or turmeric, and many anti-inflammatory foods and beverages.
The camu-berry can help migraines when combined with the removal of aspartame and MSG from the diet.
Camu has even shown a positive effect on migraine headaches.
Many consumers in the Western world suffer from migraines, and some have even come to think of migraines as a normal life experience, but we can tell you from extensive research that migraines are not normal.
Migraines are caused by toxic food and a toxic environment, pure and simple.
When you protect your nervous system against toxic chemicals found in foods and in the environment, then your incidence of migraines reduces rapidly.
Camu-camu is a neuro-protective super fruit, so it can help greatly reduce the incidence of migraines.
Additionally, if you stop drinking aspartame in diet sodas and consuming MSG in foods, then you will experience far fewer migraines.
Camu is also shown as being anti-mutagenic, which means it helps prevent the genetic mutation involved in the creation of cancer tumors.
In fact, if you can prevent DNA mutations in your body, you will live longer, have fewer chronic diseases, and greatly reduce your chances of ever being diagnosed with cancer.
One of the most impressive characteristics of camu is its anti-Parkinson's quality, so if you have Parkinson's disease or if you would like to protect yourself from Parkinson's disease, the camu-berry is one of the things you should put on your investigation list.
Again, it doesn't mean that this is a cure for Parkinson's disease; but it can certainly be a healthful nutritional tool that can either reduce the progression or potentially protect you from ever having it.
Camu is also antiseptic, which means it kills bacteria.
You can even use camu on your skin.
If your skin suffers an injury, you can actually squeeze camu-berry juice, right on the wound to help prevent infections.
I haven't used it this way, but if I were injured I wouldn't hesitate to do it.
Personally, I find that plants are the best first aid.
Think aloe vera.
Camu is shown as being anti-ulcerous, anti-herpes, and hypotensive.
If you're suffering from hypertension or high blood pressure, taking the camu-berry can help naturally lower your blood pressure.
The most likely mechanism for this is that vitamin-C combined with the mineral content of the camu-berry helps relax the blood vessels throughout your body.
This allows your blood vessels to be more flexible and to simultaneously reduce your overall blood pressure.
I want to emphasize how incredibly privileged we are as consumers to even have access to this product.
Ten years ago, you couldn't have purchased this product.
A hundred years ago, only super wealthy people would have even had access to something like this, and even then it would have been extremely rare.
Five hundred years ago, only kings and queens could have possibly afforded even a few camu-berries; yet today we can purchase it at a very reasonable price.
It gives us tools that our ancestors never had to protect their bodies and nervous systems against degenerative disease.
I must mention that all of the health information I give here is my own personal opinion based on considerable research.
These are not the claims of any company that manufactures this product.
I'm not a doctor, and I don't pretend to be one.
I am a researcher; I share information that I find to be helpful to people.
If you're interested in how you can get this product for yourself or someone you love, you'll be pleased to know that the acai berry product that Marilyn and I are so keen on, now includes camu-berry in it.
So imagine a product that gives you the benefits of acai fruit as well as camu-berry.
The results could be extra-ordinary!
