Cupuacu – Protect Your Heart, Increase Energy 

I was introduced to the Cupuacu Fruit last fall It’s  harvested in the Amazon rainforest like the famed Acai Berry. This delicious fruit happens to be a potent health resource, as well. It contains unique antioxidant Phytonutrients called Polyphenols.

The Cupuacu fruit grows on the Cupuacu tree, which is a small to medium tree in the Rainforest canopy that belongs to the Cocoa family and can reach up to 20 meters in height. Cupuacu fruit has been a primary food source in the Rainforest for both indigenous peoples and animals alike. It’s new to the states so you won’t see it around much.
