Study: Camu-Camu Verses Vitamin C Supplements – Anti-Oxidative/ Anti-Inflammatory properties
Study conducted at the Department of Cardiovascular and Renal Medicine in Japan, 2008
Study included 20 Male Smoking Volunteers;
10- Smokers where Randomly selected to take 100% Camu-Camu Juice = 1050mg Natural Vitamin C from Camu Fruit
10- Smokers where Randomly selected to take 1050mg Vitamin C tablets. Each for 7 days.
After 7 days stress markers and inflammatory markers decreased significantly in the group that took the Camu,
However, there was NO CHANGE in the group that took the Vitamin C tablets alone.
This studies results suggest that Camu-Camu may have powerful Anti-Oxidative and Anti-Inflammatory properties
compared to vitamin C tablets containing equal amounts of vitamin C. This may be due to the unknown Anti-oxidant substances
other than the Vitamin C within the fruit creating this effect.
Camu-Camu Berry contains powerful:
Phytochemicals (Currently being studied for a variety of diseases, including Cancers, Aging, Eye Health and Alzheimer’s)
Bioflavonoids (referred to as “nature’s biological response modifiers” because of strong experimental evidence
of their inherent ability to modify the body’s reaction to allergens, viruses, and carcinogens.)
Serine (activates certain receptors in the brain)
Valine ( one of the essential amino Acids critical to life and a variety of roles in metabolism)
Leucine ( has been found to slow the degradation of muscle tissue )
Vitamin C ( more than any other known plant in the world.)
