Cupuacu  (Theobroma grandiflorum)
(pronounced "coo poo uh sue")

cupuacu cupuacu

Grown in fertile, well drained soil in the canopy of the Brazilian Rainforest, Cupuacu is considered the most promising of all fruits from the lush Amazon. Cupuacu is part of the Cacao family and has a prized exotic taste, combining elements of chocolate, bananas and passion fruit.

Cupuacu contains unique Polyphenols (Antioxidant Phytonutrients) called Theograndins, with incredibly potent antioxidant properties found nowhere else on earth. Add to this an abundance of 9 other powerful antioxidant, including Vitamins A and C, and Cupuacu becomes a truly full spectrum antioxidant. This incredible Superfood is also filled with Essential Fatty Acids, Amino Acids, Phosphorous, Fiber, and Vitamins B1, B2 and B3 (Niacin). With such a rich profile and deliciously exotic taste, you will see why Cupuacu is considered a delicacy throughout South America!

"Raw Cupuacu Powder is a complete source of Vitamin C complex capable of efficiently nourishing every cell in the body!"

Brazilian Cupuacu is an extraordinary source of Vitamin C complex found only in superfoods.  Vitamin C complex is not a "vitamin" that can be removed or isolated from its food source.  Traditional Vitamin C supplements are merely Ascorbic Acid or Ascorbate. Dr. Lee, a highly respected nutritionist, found Ascorbic Acid or Asorbate chemical duplicated from the Vitamin C complex, which alone provides little health benefit as it is merely the covering or "shell" that protects the various other factors within the Vitamin C complex. Dr. Albert Szent Gvorgi, the discoverer or Vitamin C, proved isolated Ascorbic Acid is totally ineffective, particularly in the treatment of scurvy, a condition easily eradicated with whole food sources of Vitamin C complex like Cupuacu. 

"The Ascorbic Acid  in Vitamin C supplements provides no therapeutic benefit without its synergists, Rutin, Tyrosinase, P factors and J factors, found only in the Vitamin C complex of raw whole foods like Raw Cupuacu Powder."

Doctor Lee proved it is impossible for vitamins to function in a chemically isolated form, which is why people find little to no health benefit when taking traditional vitamin and mineral supplements.  Even worse, they often burden bodily systems and the liver and are secreted through urine.  He found Vitamin C complex contains not only the commonly extracted Ascorbic Acid, but also consists of Rutin as well as P factors and J factors.  The organic copper enzyme Tyrosinase is also present at the center of Vitamin C complex.  These factors and many others are protected by a surrounding shell of ascorbic acid, considered the antioxidant guard. Dr. Lee proved using just the ascorbic acid would be like cooking a meal but eating only the plate!  The Vitamin C complex in superfoods like Cupuacu is quickly and efficiently absorbed and utilized by every cell in the body, and Cupuacu surpasses the competition with its iunique taste and extraordinary levels of this very special antioxidant. 

"Research is currently underway to determine if Cupuacu, or isolated Theograndins in Cupuacu, will have a place in cancer therapy due to postive laboratory tests!"

Respected Food Critic, Andrew Zimmern

"Now this is the one nobody really knows about that I think is going to take the country by storm over the next couple of years. Cupuacu is known in the Amazon Rainforest as a "pharmacy in a fruit"...It is a really phenomenal food...it destroys free radicals and is so high in antioxidants. This can literally help anything that ails you - from improving the texture of your skin to cleaning out your GI tract... This is the next great Superfood."

Nutraceuticals World

"Like acai, Cupuacu is rich in vitamins, minerals, fats and fatty acids, and is traditionally known for its nutritive, stimulant and tonic properties."

The Independent

"Cupuacu is a smooth, elliptical tangerine colored fruit which, for generations, has been a staple of rainforest people and animals. Now it is being "discovered" by the rest of the world. While Amazonians use the fruit's juice to ease abdominal pains and help women in labor, it is appearing in the West as an ingredient in not only medicines, but yogurts, lipsticks, jams, teas, and soaps."
