It is related to the Cocoa. Cupuaçu is considered a delicacy throughout South America and is used to make ice cream, juice, and various other sweet foods.

For thousands of years, the Cupuaçu fruit has been harvested in the Amazon rainforest for native people.

Chá de Bugre has much in common with Ephedra; yet, unlike Ephedra, it has a positive impact on the heart. Nutrients in Cupuaçu fruit:
Cupuaçu is a "one stop shop" for antioxidant replenishment.

Cupuaçu possesses an abundance of powerful antioxidants, including Vitamins A and C, and polyphenols (including a unique type of polyphenols, Antioxidant Phytonutrients, called “Theograndins”), truly making it a full spectrum of antioxidants. This incredible super food is also filled with essential fatty acids, amino acids, phosphorous, fiber, and vitamins B1, B2, and B3 (niacin).

Vitamin C:
Vitamin C is probably the most popular vitamin around. Everyone knows that if you aren't feeling well you are encouraged to consume extra vitamin C. Even though Vitamin C strengthens your immune system, it takes a complete vitamin C to do the job. What people see in most supplements or foods that are fortified with Vitamin C is actually ascorbic acid, a fraction of what is needed in the body. Cupuaçu is a complete source of Vitamin C containing; Rutin, Bioflavonoids (vitamin P), Factor K, Factor J, Factor P, Tyrosinase, Ascorbinogen, and Ascorbic Acid.

A complete Vitamin C does several things in your body that a synthetic C (ascorbic acid) alone cannot do; it:

  • helps to form collagen, which is a key structural component of your bones, ligaments, tendons, and blood vessels
  • acts as a powerful antioxidant, protecting your cells against damage and premature aging due to free radicals, toxins, and other harmful substances that make their way into your blood
  • prevents damage to fatty acids, amino acids, and glucose in your blood
  • helps to make norepinephrine, a hormone that is essential to the health of your nervous system


Traditionally, Cupuaçu has been used to alleviate abdominal pain, as a stimulant (no caffeine) for increased energy and stamina, and has also been used by women who experience difficult labor pains and delivery.

Cupuaçu = a complete source of Vitamin C complex – capable of efficiently nourishing every cell in the body!
