The Camu Camu fruit, from the Amazon rain forest, contains powerful phytochemicals with huge health benefits, including the amino acids serine, valine, and leucine, and more natural Vitamin C than any other known plant in the world (30 to 60 times more Vitamin C than an orange). It has astringent, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, emollient and nutritional properties, and also contains important levels of beta carotene, calcium, iron, niacin, phosphorus, riboflavin and thiamin.
Camu Camu is a bush that grows in black water rivers, especially in those abandoned courses called "cochas", in the Amazonian jungle of Peru. The fruit is approximately 2 centimeters in diameter and has a purplish red skin with a yellow pulp.
Some of the extraordinary medicinal properties of this Amazon rain forest fruit are described by Gary Null, Ph.D., a nationally known nutritionist and researcher. In discussing the holistic treatment of depression he lists 19 plants containing chemical compounds with antidepressant properties. In order of potency, Camu camu is listed second in effectiveness. Some have been able to gradually wean themselves off of their anti-depression prescription medication (such as Zoloft and Prozac) under medical supervision and substitute camu camu powder with no relapse into depression. Although the amount taken varies for different people, some have taken, on an empty stomach, 1/2 teaspoon of camu camu powder in a glass of water four times daily. Others have taken one tsp. either once or twice daily. One alternative health care provider in New York City has had twenty patients on Zoloft and Prozac gradually wean themselves off these medications while taking camu camu and they have succeeded in avoiding depression. Good results have also been noted for patients who are anxious, talkative, and those with panic attacks.
