Maybe you don't agree that eating green food is healthy for you but that's how I have always felt. Then came the day when I realized the I, me, yes the one and only was not getting enough green. You know that crisper in the bottom of the fridge? Mine was not ever filled with much greenery. I remember contemplating it but then only bought apples to fill one side of it. Once I started the HCG diet I had a realization the it was me and my shopping habits that kept the crisper empty. That is not how it is at our house now. My Hubby is so glad to have celery available to him at all times now of course he slathers his with peanut butter. Of course all the boys live on apples as their standby snack so its been a learning lesson to get them to like the Hubby's celery treat. C boy will eat every cucumber in the fridge if I let him. But we have one little guy who will just not eat anything that is green, slimy or resembling alive. So I have now resorted to feeding him a highly green healthy drink mixed in his pedisure or any other liquid form that I can get him to drink. These are some of the ingredients of this most incredible mystery drink. I am assured that he is now getting veggies along with all the protein that he needs.

Acerola is a fruit. It is rich in vitamin C, and also contains vitamin A, thiamine, riboflavin, and niacin. People use it for medicine.

Acerola is used to treat or prevent scurvy, a disease caused by vitamin C deficiency. Acerola is also used for preventing heart disease, “hardening of the arteries” (atherosclerosis), blood clots, and cancer.

Some people use it to treat the common cold, pressure sores, bleeding in the eye(retinal hemorrhages), tooth decay, gum infections, depression, hay fever, and collagen disorders. Athletes use acerola for improving physical endurance.

How does it work?
The health benefits of acerola are due to its vitamin C content.

Camu-camu powder

The world's highest concentration of Vitamin C
Have you ever heard of the Camu Camu fruit? I hadn't either so I thought I would show you a few interesting facts about this fruit from the Amazon Rain forest. It is a small fruit the size of a large cherry. Residents in the areas where these low-growing trees are found often harvest the fruits directly into small boats or canoes as they row under the trees. The reason this fruit is so highly concentrated in vitamin C is because it thrives in lush rain forest soil enriched by the flood waters of the Amazon Basin. This fruit contains thirty times more vitamin C than an orange, ten times as much iron, three times as much niacin, twice as much riboflavin and fifty percent more phosphorus. It is a significant source of potassium, minerals and amino acids. So a "full-spectrum" vitamin C is an all natural nutrient rich nutritional supplement that is highly absorb-able by the human body using all of the natural cofactors required for nutrient assimilation.

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."

Put that name in and see all that is said about it.

There was a video that I watched when doing all this research that talked about how Camu Camu helps tissue growth. All I could think about was the fact that maybe it would help my little guys lung tissue grow faster since they say lung tissue will continue to grow until age 8 in little peoples lungs. Consuming these super foods that will help him is worth it to me.

Dr Oz: Best Snack: Inca Peanuts or Sacha Inchi Nuts
Dr Oz said that the best snack for weight loss are Inca Peanuts (also called Sacha Inchi Nuts) that come from Peru in the Andes Mountains. Inca Peanuts are high in omega 3′s and vitamin e, both of which fight off heart disease – plus it has lots of fiber. Dr Oz said that Sacha Inchi Nuts have 3 times the omega 3′s of walnuts and twice the fiber of walnuts
