traditional herbal remedy for any condition has not been documented in the Amazon
region. Camu-camu was not widely eaten by the people in the region because it has
a sour, acidic taste. It is most likely that traditional Amazonians did not consider
camu-camu as nutritionally relevant. Only recently have the health benefits of
camu-camu become more widely recognized and exploited. As such, camu-camu is
coming into large scale cultivation and distribution to the world markets. Japan
consumes the most camu-camu fruit of any country.

It is considered by many experts that camu-camu may help with the
following health related disorders:

1. mood balancing,

2. help maintain healthy eyes, skin and gums,

3. strengthen the immune system,

4. help with depression by energizing and lifting moods.

botanist for the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture and author of many botanical books ranked
Camu-Camu in the top 5 herbs with the greatest effectiveness for treating various
health effects such as atherosclerosis, painkiller, osteoarthritis, hepatitis, asthma,
colds, cataracts, infertility and depression just to name a few.
