They even used graviola as a type of very mild sedative. Another rainforest nutritional treasure is the fabulous camu camu berry. Folklore tales dating back more than 700 years describe Amazonian Indian tribes used this fruit to effectively help treat infections, decrease pain, strengthen joints and even maintain longevity. Today, scientists have found that the camu camu fruit is rich in Vitamin C and contains 30 to 60 times more vitamin C than an orange or lemon. The camu camu berry is also an excellent source of calcium, phosphorus, potassium, iron and various amino acids. Besides its vitamin and mineral content, the fruit is also rich in anthocyanins, amino acids, flavonoids and has very strong antioxidant activity. As our quest for nutritional knowledge continued, we turned our eyes toward the acai berry.
For centuries, the acai berry has been eaten and used for medicinal reasons by the natives of the Amazon rainforests. And, of course, we were fascinated to learn the legend of the acai. This legend tells how the palm tree that produces the acai berry was discovered accidentally by an Amazon Indian girl named Iaca, the daughter of a tribal chieftain. Facing devastating famine, this chief declared that no children would be allowed to be born into the tribe until a new food source was found. Iaca, the chief’s own daugher, was with child at the time. After her child was sacrificed, a grief-stricken Iaca ran into the forest that there discovered the acai palm bearing a wealth of bountiful dark purple fruit. Tragically, the discovery of this new food source could have saved the life of Iaca’s daughter, causing it to be called “the fruit that cries.” The tribe’s leader named the fruit acai (Iaca inverted) in honor of his daughter and his tribe once again prospered.
From a health standpoint, the acai berry is one of the most nutritious and powerful foods in the world. Acai contains a remarkable concentration of antioxidants that help combat premature aging, as well as valuable phytonutrients and a nearly perfect amino acid complex. Some of the more well-known health benefits of the acai include weight management support, increased energy and enhanced mental focus, not to mention cardiovascular and circulatory support. Continuing our search through the lush jungles of South America, we heard amazing stories of how the Mapuche Indians of Chile have, for centuries, have been known for their remarkable strength and endurance. We discovered that maqui berries have, for many hundreds of years, been a dietary staple of the Mapuches. According to legend, the ancient Mapuche regarded maqui as a sacred and powerful plant and used maqui fruit as an essential part of its medical practices. But the most exciting and legendary use of maqui was the strength, stamina and overall good health it provided to Mapuche warriors. The Spanish conquistadors who were repeatedly defeated by the Mapuche tribes reportedly said that the extreme stamina and strength of the natives came from the daily consumption of a beverage made from the maqui berry. Our South American quest for knowledge, however, did not end in Chile. We also found that that the ancient Incas treasured pau d’arco as a major plant source used to promote health and immunity. In fact, indications imply that the use of pau d’arco may actually pre-date the Incas. We found that they Guarani and Tupi tribes called the pau d’arco tree “tajy,” which means “to have strength and vigor.” They used the bark not only to fashion hunting bows but also to treat a variety of health conditions. A tonic made from the pau d’arco tree was traditionally used for good health, strength and endurance.
It is said that the use of bacopa for memory enhancement goes back 3,000 years or more in India, when it was discovered to benefit brain function, including memory and learning skills, and to help manage anxiety, depression and stress. A traditional Ayurvedic medicine used to treat mental disorders and epilepsy, this wonder-herb appears to strengthen memory as well as improve mental focus and concentration by enhancing the conductivity of nerve tissue. One of our most exciting and joyous discoveries involved the goji berries of Tibet. The natives of this mountainous region say that eating goji berries in the morning will make you happy the entire day, as its amazing nutritional properties create a sense of well-being and optimism.
Looking back to India, we set out on the trail of an herb so powerful that its name in Sanskrit is “Brahmi,” which means wisdom or consciousness. Gotu kola, an ancient medicinal herb used in India, Indonesia and China for thousands of years, has long been associated with enhanced energy, improved brain function and longevity. In fact, we discovered that gotu kola has been called one of the “miracle elixirs of life” because legend has it that an ancient Chinese herbalist lived for more than 200 years as a result of using this remarkable herb.
According to Ayurveda, the gotu kola herb is one of the chief herbs for revitalizing the nerves and brain cells; hence, it is primarily known as a “brain food” in India. Another Far East herb that boasts quite a fascinating legend is ashwagandha. This herb has been used for 4,000 years in India and is featured prominently in the ancient art of Ayurveda where it is used to boost energy and vitality. Sometimes called Indian Ginseng, Ayurvedic medicine refers to ashwagandha as both a vitalizer and a mood-stabilizer.
One other nutritional jewel from the Far East that captivated our imagination and attention was the schizandra berry. This remarkable berry has a long history going back many centuries and, according to ancient Chinese herbal texts, it was believed that schizandra could “prolong the yearsof life without aging.” The fact that it has been in continuous use for at least 5,000 years and has been horded, revered and praised by the cultures of China, Japan and Korea demonstrates that the reputation of schizandra is well-founded.
The next stop on our worldwide quest was the beautiful South China Sea where we found a delicious fruit with quite a royal name. The mangosteen fruit has such an exquisite flavor that it has been given the nickname of the”Queen of Fruits.” Interestingly, mangosteen has been used for thousands of years in Chinese, Ayurvedic and folk medicine in Asia. Dried and ground, these traditional medical practices used the rind against internal and external infections. Poultices of the whole mangosteen were used to treat skin conditions, and an extract of mangosteen pulp was used to control fever. The mangosteen has also been reported to have been relied upon as nutrition for individuals who, because of illness, were unable to eat other foods. Exceptionally rich in xanthones and antioxidant-packed nutrients, mangosteen is not only a wonderfully delicious superfood, it also offers up amazing health benefits.
Mangosteen fruit, which comes from a tropical evergreen tree, is an off-the-charts antioxidant. Its properties offer potent support for cardiovascular system health, circulatory system health, immune system health, and may even offer enhanced cognitive benefits. Mangosteen also appears to possess anti-inflammatory properties.
We then turned our attention to the wealth of nutritionally-rich exotic fruits found in the glorious South Pacific area. Our tropical trek brought us to the amazing noni. This miraculous plant was named “noni” by ancient Hawaiian healers who treasured its astounding medicinal properties. References to the use of noni date back many centuries and there are almost 40 recorded herbal remedies from these healers of old that involve combinations of the noni root, stems, bark, leaves, flowers and fruit. In fact, medicinal use of the noni plant is even mentioned in ancient Sanskrit writings from India. From a nutritional standpoint, this tropical powerhouse has long been known for its beneficial effect when it comes to emotional and mental wellness. And although the jury is still out on precisely what makes noni work, a number of clinical studies indicate that noni’s high xeronine content works at a cellular level, making noni extremely helpful for burns, digestion, heart health and immune system health. Plus, its antioxidant properties are quite possibly an important key in unlocking the secrets of anti-aging and longevity.
But we wanted Trévo to be much more than just an exotic fruit or herbal drink. We wanted it to become the embodiment of the phrase “super-nutrition.” So we included all the vitamins and minerals that medical research has found to be essential for vibrant good health, increased energy, enhanced mental focus, and a sustained sense of well-being. However, we did not stop there. Scientists and physicians alike understand the importance of essential fatty acids, amino acidsand supergreen foods, as well as a good variety of fruits and vegetables in order to restore and maintain good health. So our chemists and world class formulators set out to raise the nutritional bar even higher. For example, Trévo contains a full complement of vegetarian-based amino acids because without amino acids all of the metabolic processes necessary to spark and sustain human life would simply not be possible. Amino acids form the proteins that in turn form muscle tissue and increase fat metabolism. Look in the cupboard of just about any serious athlete and you will likely find some kind of amino acid supplement product designed to help them increase strength, build muscle tissue or otherwise enhance their athletic performance. However, amino acids are not just important to those who wish to “bulk up.” Without amino acids, all cellular development, respiration or renewal would come to a devastating stop. Similarly, essential fatty acids are … well, essential. Essential fatty acids, sometimes simply referred to as EFAs, are necessary fats that the human body cannot synthesize and must be obtained through diet. EFAs support the cardiovascular, reproductive, immune and nervous systems.
For example, researchers agree that wheatgrass, which is the delicate, immature wheat plant before it produces seeds, is loaded with protein, containing more of this nutrient than meat, eggs, fish or dairy products. Similarly, barley grassis rich in amino acids, enzymes, calcium, potassium, magnesium, iron, copper, phosphorus, mangangese, zinc, beta carotene, B vitamins, vitamins C and E and selenium. Rich in B-complex vitamins, chlorella contains more pantothenic acid (an anti-stress nutrient) than any other natural source. It also boasts magnesium and other trace minerals and is an all-purpose cleanser than can rid the body of many environmental toxins. Spirulina, like wheatgrass, is a particularly rich source of protein.
It is also one of the few plant sources of vitamin B-12 and is a good source of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) and free radical-fighting antioxidants. At the conclusion of Trévo’s global search for the secret of wellness, we had compiled 174 of the finest and most astonishing ingredients that nature has to offer, gathered from the far reaches of the globe. The result is a carefully balance nutritional product that is so unique, so revolutionary, that there is literally no other product like it on the market anywhere. With Trévo, you and your family can enjoy the benefits of truly complete nutrition.
