Camu-camu powderThe world's highest concentration of Vitamin C
Dr. Gary Null, Ph. D. has named Camu-Camu at the top of his list of compounds with antidepressant properties, as well it's effectiveness against the herpes virus. Vitamin C is a highly effective antioxidant, even in small amounts it can protect molecules in the body (proteins, fats, carbohydrates, DNA and RNA) from damage by free radicals that can be caused by normal metabolic processes and exposure to environmental toxins. Vitamin C is known to be able to regenerate other antioxidants such as vitamin E.
Additionally,Pure Camu™contains natural cofactors that support proper serotonin levels in the brain, enhancing and elevating mood.
Dr Mike Adams, aka The Health Ranger explains in further detail about the benefits of 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 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 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."
