HAVE YOU TRIED THIS IMMUNITY WARRIOR?
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.
Here’s how this powerhouse can pack a punch to your protection arsenal:
The fresh Camu Camu berry contains 50 times more vitamin C than oranges or strawberries of the same weight. The process used to turn the fresh fruit into a powder reduces the level of natural Vitamin C found in the fresh fruit, but it concentrates the fruit making the final product (Royal Camu®) by weight more potent than the same weight in fresh fruit. CamuCamu is far superior to other sources of natural Vitamin C plant, fruit, or vegetable on this planet.
Synthetic Vitamin C is composed primarily of ascorbic acid, which is an isolate (a fraction) of naturally occurring vitamin C. In addition to ascorbic acid, vitamin C must include the “cofactors” of rutin, bioflavonoids, Factor K, Factor J, Factor P, Tyrosinase, Ascorbinogen, and other components. If any of these cofactors are missing, there is no vitamin activity. Ascorbic acid is the part of natural vitamin C that keeps the other cofactors from rapid oxidization or breakdown. Look on your vitamin C bottle ingredients – if it only lists ascorbic acid, you are buying an isolate made in a laboratory from a process involving cornstarch and volatile acids. Several scientific studies show that excessive intake of manufactured ascorbic acid may contribute to the formation of kidney stones.
You cannot overdose on Royal Camu® powder or capsules. Camu Camu is a plant-based, pure supplement containing the rich, healing power of nature. Vitamin C as it occurs in nature with all of its cofactors creates a super-potent, highly absorbable Vitamin C. You will never produce bright yellow urine while taking Royal Camu® which indicates a lack of complete absorption of ascorbic acid. People whose delicate stomachs or bladders can’t tolerate synthetic ascorbic acid are usually very happy with taking take Royal Camu®.
While we are still learning how to combat viral attacks, one consistent observation has been that those suffering from underlying conditions that cause inflammation are more susceptible to viruses and they have a harder time fighting them.
Not only is Camu Camu’s natural Vitamin C level unsurpassed, but it has powerful phytochemicals that act as antioxidants, protecting cells from oxidative damage and fighting free radicals, thereby keeping inflammation at bay.
Light (pink) Royal Camu® is wildcrafted, picked as it grows wild along the banks of slow-moving tributaries to the Amazon River. Dark (brown) Royal Camu® is organically grown in the Peruvian rainforest. Both have been harvested by indigenous people of Peru. All batches are tested for heavy metals and natural Vitamin C content at time of manufacture. Unlike some other brands of Camu Camu, no synthetic Vitamin C is ever added to Royal Camu® products and the amount of natural Vitamin C content which Royal Camu® contains is stated on the label.
