The Amazon gives us one of its richest and most nutritious fruits: aguaje, sweet and sour fruit with an important nutritional value. In addition to providing a great contribution in vitamins and minerals, it has natural compounds that are beneficial to health.
Aguaje is a fruit rich in beta-carotene (Vitamin A) and phyto-estrogens.
The concentration of Vitamin A in Aguaje is 7 to 12 times higher than in carrots, making it the most concentrated natural plant source of beta carotenes (vitamin “A”) in the world, which are very important to maintain the immune system, good vision and healthy skin and hair.
By the other side, phyto-estrogens are “phyto-hormones”. The compounds of Aguaje are called “phyto” because they are naturally from a plant and they mimic the female hormones in the
human body. This means that consuming Aguaje can gently and naturally supplement these hormones and provide hormone support to women who are undergoing menopause, reducing the post-menopausal symptoms. Also, this fruit is famous in the Amazons regions for helping women who want to benefit from the results of greater female hormones in the body and the resultant effects – such as increased breast, buttock and thigh size.
Another important health benefit of the phyto-estrogens in Aguaje are their anti-cancer effect, and whose greatest protective role would be against breast, colon and prostate tumors.
