Dr. Tim’s Exotic Juices: Camu Camu Juice

Additionally it has 10 times the Iron, 3 times the niacin, 2 times the riboflavin and 50% more phosphorous than oranges. Camu Camu is also rich in beta-carotens, calcium, leucine, protein, serine, thiamin and valine.

Dr. Tim Hollingshead with Dr. Tim’s Exotic Juices talks about Camu Camu on Studio.

Camu camu contains several antidepressant compounds and inflammation-fighting nutrients such as ellagic acid, calcium, thiamin, and phosphorus that protect brain function, helping your body maintain high levels of mood-boosting chemicals, says James Duke, a former botanist with the U.S. Department of Agriculture and author of Green Pharmacy Guide to Healing Foods (Rodale, 2009).

HEART CARE: In a study published in the Journal of Cardiology last year, researchers at a Japanese university found that camu camu’s multiple heart-protective anti-inflammatories and antioxidants were more powerful than those of ascorbic acid (vitamin C) alone.

Dr Tim’s Amazon Camu Camu can keep your immune system in optimal condition during cold and flu season. Camu Camu is one of the most potent natural sources for vitamin C. While there is no evidence that vitamin C prevents the common cold, a published summary of research studies suggests that vitamin C may have a modest effect on shortening the duration or lessening the severity of a cold if it is consumed before the onset of illness.

Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid and is a water-soluble vitamin. Unlike most mammals, humans do not have the ability to make their own vitamin C. Therefore, we must obtain vitamin C through our diet.

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant in its own right. During cold and flu season remember to maintain your vitamin C consumption and understand that it is best to increase your intake of vitamin C. Unlike some vitamins, vitamin C cannot be stored by the body; so, it is important to replenish regularly to stay healthy and avoid the flu this season. Just one tablespoon provides up to 400% of your daily vitamin C requirement. The vitamin C found in Camu Camu is a full spectrum Vitamin C that is readily absorbed by the body. This is important information as we stare down the barrel of the impending H1N1 Swine Flu Pandemic.

Dr. Tim’s Amazon Camu Camu is available in 32 ounce bottles.
