Cupuaçu (pronounced cc.pwah.soo) – The Magic of the Amazon Rainforest

Cupuaçu is in the same plant family as chocolate, and has similar antioxidants to the powerful grape seed extract. It has similar health benefits to chocolate without the negative effects of the sugar we usually take in when we eat chocolate.

Not only does Cupuaçu contain those health benefits, but it combines polyphenols similar to those found in medicinal plants such as green tea and grape seeds.

As we age our body produces less of the renwing substances such as ubiquinone, used in every cell, and DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone), so we need extra help from nutrients and antioxiants such as those found in cupuaçu. We also need help if we are ill, stressed or depressed. People who regularly use cupuaçu and açai together claim they gain many other benefits such as better sleep, greater energy, and such changes as relief from depression.

Dr. Jeffrrey Kelin lists the known benefits as:

1. Increased ability to fight disease and cancer.
2. More youthful and healthier looking skin.
3. Lower cholesterol levels.
4. Increased libido and stamina.
5. A cell protecting antioxidant cocktail.

    Kathy – The only information I have is that the fruit has a small sugar content for a fruit.
