“Last spring, I came down with a terrible sickness that included fever with chills, achy muscles all over my body, and pounding headaches. I had zero energy and was miserable. As a long-time customer of Whole World Botanicals, my first response was to boost my immune system by making a power-packed type of lemonade I call “Camu-Aid.” Into a shaker cup I put purified water, Royal Camu® powder, Royal Cat’s Claw™, and Royal Desmodium™. I shook it up and drank the whole thing as fast as I could. I did that three times a day. While others I knew were battling their illness for several weeks, mine was mostly gone in a few days. I still felt weak, so I continued to take my Camu-Aid once a day until I felt stronger. Now, I take it daily as a preventative to protect myself from catching any other viruses.”

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.

All three of these botanicals can be safely taken daily to maintain and strengthen the immune system and to promote optimal lung function as well as during active illness.

For daily use during cold and flu season:
Royal Camu® – ½ t- 1 tsp (3 – 5 caps) twice daily away from food.
Royal Cat’s Claw™ liquid extract, 1:1 strength: ½ tsp three times daily away from food.
Royal Desmodium™ liquid extract, 1:1 strength: 4 – 5 squirts (80 – 100 drops) as needed, away from food.

For immediate and urgent use if you think you might be getting sick:
Royal Camu®– 1 tsp (5 caps) every 1 or 2 hours away from food.
Royal Cat’s Claw™ liquid extract, 1:1 strength – ½ tsp 5 – 6 times daily, away from food.
Royal Desmodium™ liquid extract, 1:1 strength: 4 – 5 squirts (80 – 100 drops) liquid extract, 1:1 strength: 4-5 squirts (80 – 100 drops) as needed, away from food.

Making Camu Camu and Cat’s Claw a part of your daily health regimen is an excellent way to strengthen your immune system and stay well, along with avoiding contact when you are surrounded by people who may be sick.
