Camu-Aid to the Rescue!

Botanicals like Camu Camu (Myrciaria dubia) and Cat’s Claw (Uncaria tomentosa) are widely used in naturopathic (natural medicine) circles for their antiviral and immune system-supporting properties. Camu Camu is the most potent source of natural Vitamin C on the planet, making it a powerhouse for immune system support. Desmodium (Desmodium adscendens) is another wonderful botanical that, while not known for its antiviral properties, promotes healthy lung function, relieves congestion, and promotes easy breathing – a major issue in both bacterial and viral pneumonia and a host of other upper and lower respiratory illnesses, including bronchitis and the common cold.

Thyroid Awareness

Your thyroid – a small, butterfly-shaped gland in your neck – not only helps regulate metabolism, but it’s also involved in the delivery and use of energy, body temperature regulation, mood and thinking, and even digestion. Thyroid hormone is essential; all our cells, tissues, organs, and glands require sufficient thyroid hormone to fully function.

Cold and Flu have nothing on you with Royal Camu!

Strengthening your immune system is essential in weathering the winter and is an even bigger priority now, as we’re facing the triple threat of colds, flu, and other viruses. As if this year needed any more drama, contracting one illness could potentially leave us vulnerable to catching others.

We’re in the middle of an invisible battle and it’s critical to level-up a defensive strategy. By being proactive and following a consistent plan we can ensure our front-line soldiers (our immune cells) are well-nourished and can go the distance.

While hot soups, citrus fruits, or synthetic Vitamin C are some of the most common go-to’s, there is a holistic, formidable ally you may not be aware of Camu Camu.
