Camu-Camu (Myrciaria dubia)
Camu-Camu (Myrciaria dubia) is the name of a bush which grows in the Amazonian rain forest of Peru. The Camu-Camu bush produces a fruit with the same name which contains powerful phytochemicals with health benefits‚ including the amino acids serine‚ valine‚ and leucine‚ and more Vitamin C than any other known plant in the world. The camu-camu fruit has a surprising range of therapeutic effects. Many people have stopped using large dosages of synthetic Vitamin C because they find that Camu-Camu is energizing‚ mood-lifting and highly effective in strengthening the immune system.
The Camu-Camu fruit is about the size of a large grape and has a purplish red skin with a yellow pulp. It grows wild‚ is harvested directly into a freezer boat‚ which travels down the river ways of the Amazon where the fruit is picked at the height of its ripeness and flash-frozen. It is then taken to a processing plant where it is thawed‚ peeled‚ liquefied and spray dried. The resulting powder is a pale pink to yellow beige with very potent effects.
Although the number of milligrams of Vitamin C‚ which Camu-Camu contains‚ is low compared to the milligrams in synthetically derived Vitamin C tablets‚ it has more natural Vitamin C than any known botanical on the planet‚ the effects on the human body are incomparable. Because of its food form‚ with bioflavanoids and other phytochemicals‚ clinical evidence suggests that it is far more effective‚ milligram for milligram‚ than synthetic Vitamin C (ascorbic acid). Many people report that just two capsules daily (1/3 tsp.) is sufficient to significantly increase their wellness.
Camu-Camu is very well known and prized in Japan but is almost unknown in the U.S. Nevertheless‚ the Peruvian government expects that it will become a major export when its amazing properties are discovered in the United States. It is preparing for the expected large increase in demand by making Camu-Camu seedlings available free of charge to communities of native people who are rain-forest dwellers for them to plant and to tend. It takes four to five years for the Camu-Camu bush to bear fruit. The growing popularity of this wild rainforest fruit is contributing to the sustainable development of the Amazon River basin and helping the forest dwellers to maintain their traditional way of life.
Some of the extraordinary medicinal properties of this Amazon rain forest fruit are described by Gary Null‚ Ph.D.‚ a nationally known nutritionist and researcher‚ (1996). The camu-camu fruit has a surprising range of health-promoting effects. Camu-Camu helps to strengthen the immune system‚ maintain healthy gums‚ eyes and skin. Some extraordinary properties of this Amazon rainforest fruit are described by Gary Null‚ Ph.D.‚ a nationally known nutritionist and researcher. In his Clinician’s Handbook of Natural Healing‚ (1998)‚ Null lists disease conditions and the herbs that have been found effective for their health promoting properties in reference to specific organ/system weaknesses and problems. In discussing the holistic treatment of mood-support‚ he lists 19 plants containing chemical compounds with mood-balancing properties‚ in order of potency. Camu-Camu is no. two on his list. Anecdotally and in clinical experience‚ Null’s assessment of Camu-Camu has proven to be correct although the Camu-Camu fruit as such has hardly been studied at all‚ apart from clinical experience there is only indirect inferential evidence from scientific studies on the effect of Vitamin C. it appears to provide nutritional support for the brain to optimize its own mood balancing chemistry. Additionally‚ published research suggests that Vitamin C supports an increased serotonin level in the brain. Some health care practitioners have reported that Camu-Camu has same day mood-balancing effects.
The Camu-Camu fruit has a surprising range of medicinal effects as measured both by traditional use and by quantity of a variety of phytochemical compounds which experimentally have demonstrated therapeutic effects. Dr. James Duke retired chief botanist for the U.S.Dept.of Agriculture‚ pre-eminent New World tropical botanist‚ and author of many botanical books‚ including the popular Green Pharmacy‚ lists some of these effects in his Ethnobotanical website‚ based on amounts of various phytochemicals which Myrciaria dubia contains.
Why is Royal Camu o effective for Mood Balance?
Low mood and anxiety have been strongly linked to high levels of stress. Studies document that fact that Vitamin C destroys free radicals in the body. Mood balance can be quickly restored with high levels of anti-oxidants. Vitamin C from food sources is one of the most potent ways to destroy free radicals & restore mood balance. Food sources of vitamin C such as Royal Camu are more bioavailable than synthetic Vitamin C. Royal Camu is guaranteed to contain 10% Vitamin C as well as many other beneficial phytochemicals which aid mood balance.
Royal Camu for Hormone Balance: Studies show that an optimum amount of Vitamin C is needed to help the body produce adequate progesterone. A healthy balance of progesterone to estrogen is needed to conceive and bear children. It is also necessary to prevent estrogen-dominance in peri-menopause.
How to transition off Bioidentical hormones?. Use Royal Camu.
Most women eventually want to stop taking hormone replacement drugs. Royal Camu® is an effective hormone-balancing supplement which can be taken for 4 weeks after stopping HRT to make the transition to optimal natural hormone balance nearly seamless. One tsp. (5 capsules) of Royal Camu® taken 3 times daily away from food will usually reduce hot flashes by 60-70%. After the transition period is up‚ most women will choose to reduce their intake of Royal Camu® to a small amount suitable for immune support and start taking Royal Maca® for an almost completely symptom-free perimenopause and menopause.

Overall Rating for Royal Camu Light Powder - 3.5 oz (100 Grams)
from New York, NY
I was introduced to Royal Camu Light Powder by Whole World Botanicals at a health foods store and purchased it online from PureFormulas because PureFormulas sells it at a better price. I take the powder for "mood balance" (the bottle lists 3 reasons and ways to take the powder), so I take 1/2 a tsp when I wake up and again in the afternoon, both times on an empty stomach for complete absorption (according to the bottle's instructions). I add the powder to water; it doesn't dissolve very well and clumps into little balls, which I then have to take a spoon to smash against the glass. I find this annoying, so I think once I finish this bottle, I'll start buying liquid Vitamin C instead-it's also much friendlier on the wallet than this powder. As for effects, I'm not sure if I feel any differently, but my esthetician says ingesting Vitamin C is wonderful for aging skin, so I'm going to continue taking Vitamin C for the sake of vanity!
Good dosage instructions on the bottle, a bottle lasts a good amount of time.
Powder clumps and doesn't dissolve well, expensive.
