Curcuma Organic (Pouteria Lucuma)
The Lucuma, belongs to the Sapotaceae family .it is a delicious fruit that grows under because their higher Niacine" quantitiy and Carotene it is known that lúcuma has great amount of niacina, carotene, iron and fiber, it is also a great natural energizer, Niacin opens blood vessels wider, .key substances for the correct operation of the organism.

Earlier studies on "Locuma" shows that the high content of niacine like the B3 may act as antural cure agains depression and some others nervous system diseases

Lúcuma help in the metabolism process to transform proteins providing more energy to the body .

On recent studies reports, confirm that this vitamin helps to reduce the triglicéridos cholesterol level and in the blood, reason why is of vital importance for the treatment of innumerable affections, specially in the obesity and cardio you will tilt. The carotene can reduce the probabilities of cardiac attacks and increases the efficiency of the immunological system.

The ingestion of "locuma" helps to improve the metabolism of proteinsful in the metabolism of proteins providing more more energy, the nicine in greather quantities also helps to regulate the right operation of the nervous system

The niacina, present in great amounts in this species, aid to reduce the triglicéridos cholesterol level and in the blood, reason why is from vital importance for the treatment of innumerable diseases, specially the cardiovascular obesity and malaises. The carotene acts like an antirust one, reducing the effects of the aging; it resists the diseases that affect the eyes like the cataracts and the lost one of the vision by the degeneration of the retina. It prevents the cancer with prostate and it diminishes the probabilities of cardiac attacks considerably, besides to increase the effectiveness of our immunological system. And all this present in lúcuma.

For Diabetics patients

Beyond the positive effects of B complex vitamins on mood, or emotional stability, there are other areas of usefulness where B3is concerned according to some dieticians patients with type I diabetes can benefit from taking B3. By taking the supplement early into the beginning stages of type I to stop the progression of diabetes. Medical research studies state that Niacin stimulates insulin secretion.

On the other hand the iron, present also in important proportions in this singular species, constitutes an essential element for the human organism within the group of minerals. Without the necessary iron, it is known, our body becomes slow because one of its more important functions would be affected: to oxidize the glucose in order to turn it energy.

… Also, the latex of lúcuma is used with great success against all type of cutaneous affections, in special against herpes and warts… And their leaves are used like natural dyes to dye textile products.

Vitamin B3 is required for cell respiration, helps in the release of energy and metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins, proper circulation and healthy skin, functioning of the nervous system, and normal secretion of bile and stomach fluids. It is used in the synthesis of sex hormones, treating schizophrenia and other mental illnesses, and a memory-enhancer.

Nicotinic acid (but not nicotinamide) given in drug dosage improves the blood cholesterol profile, and has been used to clear the body of organic poisons, such as certain insecticides. People report more mental alertness when this vitamin is in sufficient supply.

Niacin opens blood vessels wider. Niacin, when used properly, offers benefits in terms of cholesterol reduction, as well as for detoxification. People with high cholesterol levels should see improvements once their follow the proper diet of raw foods, preferably through a good juicing program, along with the proper healing fats in their diet. However for people who don't respond, it would seem that niacin would be a far safer and less expensive alternative to the statin drugs, which have their serious complications.

Niacin is a water-soluble B vitamin – vitamin B3 - and the common name for 2 very different compounds: "nicotinic acid" and "niacinamide". High doses of niacin (as nicotinic acid) can lower cholesterol levels (although the exact mechanism of action is still not known). The other form of niacin (nicotinamide or niacinamide) does not open blood vessels wider nor provide a cholesterol-lowering effect.


It's important to note that this niacin flush is not harmful or dangerous. Some people worry about it, but it is actually a sign of improved blood flow.

When you get the niacin "flush", it's an indication that the niacin is causing small blood vessels in your body to be expanded in size. Many of your small blood vessels, called "capilaries" are so small that blood cells can only go through them in single file. Sometimes, in fact, that small capilary passageway is clogged and blood doesn't get through at all.

While the large organs of the body all have blood supplied from large arteries, a great deal of your body, particularly the parts near the skin, get their ONLY supply of blood (therefore also of oxygen and nutrients) from these small capillaries.

The niacin causes these small capilaries to expand - so they might be able to carry 2 or 3 blood cells at the same time. This is a tremendous increase in blood flow.

The cardiovascular benefits of niacin have been studied in several major clinical trials (1-5). The primary cardiovascular measures such as cholesterol and triglyceride levels, strokes and heart attacks are all significantly reduced with niacin therapy (sometimes used alone and sometimes used along with other drug therapy). Overall, the use of niacin (nicotinic acid, but not the other form called "niacinamide") to treat or prevent high levels of blood cholesterol and triglycerides and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease is well substantiated. In a large number of clinical trials, niacin has been shown to consistently lower total and LDL (“bad”) cholesterol - by about 20% - and triglycerides - by 10 to 25%, while increasing levels of HDL (“good”) cholesterol - by 15 to 25%.

Research findings:

ackground: Dementia can be caused by severe niacin insufficiency, but it is unknown whether variation in intake of niacin in the usual diet is linked to neurodegenerative decline. We examined whether dietary intake of niacin was associated with incident Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and cognitive decline in a large, prospective study.

Methods: This study was conducted in 1993–2002 in a geographically defined Chicago community of 6158 residents aged 65 years and older. Nutrient intake was determined by food frequency questionnaire. Four cognitive tests were administered to all study participants at 3 year intervals in a 6 year follow up. A total of 3718 participants had dietary data and at least two cognitive assessments for analyses of cognitive change over a median 5.5 years. Clinical evaluations were performed on a stratified random sample of 815 participants initially unaffected by AD, and 131 participants were diagnosed with 4 year incident AD by standardised criteria.

Results: Energy adjusted niacin intake had a protective effect on development of AD and cognitive decline. In a logistic regression model, relative risks (95% confidence intervals) for incident AD from lowest to highest quintiles of total niacin intake were: 1.0 (referent) 0.3 (0.1 to 0.6), 0.3 (0.1 to 0.7), 0.6 (0.3 to 1.3), and 0.3 (0.1 to 0.7) adjusted for age, sex, race, education, and ApoE e4 status. Niacin intake from foods was also inversely associated with AD (p for linear trend = 0.002 in the adjusted model). In an adjusted random effects model, higher food intake of niacin was associated with a slower annual rate of cognitive decline, by 0.019 standardised units (SU) per natural log increase in intake (mg) (p = 0.05). Stronger associations were observed in analyses that excluded participants with a history of cardiovascular disease (β = 0.028 SU/year; p = 0.008), those with low baseline cognitive scores (β = 0.023 SU/year; p = 0.02), or those with fewer than 12 years’ education (β = 0.035 SU/year; p = 0.002)

Conclusion: Dietary niacin may protect against AD and age related cognitive decline.

Dietary niacin and the risk of incident Alzheimer’s disease and of cognitive decline

Dietary niacin, or vitamin B3, may protect against the development of Alzheimer's disease and the cognitive decline associated with ageing in older people, suggests new research.

Niacin has been prescribed to older people to prevent confusional states, and severe deficiency causes pellagra, a condition characterised by dementia, diarrhoea, and dermatitis, but its role in Alzheimer's disease has not previously been thoroughly explored, said the researchers based at the Rush University in Chicago.

Much attention has however focused on the relation between dementia and other B vitamins, particularly vitamin B12, B6 and folate.

The new study showed that people consuming more than 22.4mg of niacin daily were 80 per cent less likely to suffer Alzheimer's than those in the lowest intake group.

If confirmed, the findings could have significant implications for public health, write the researchers in the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry (75: 1093-99).

"This is fantastic news as cognitive health is a very important area of concern," said Dan Murray, associate director of nutrition at Lonza, the world's largest producer of niacin.

"Niacin helps general circulation but it is not known as a brainpower vitamin."

Niacin as nicotinic acid is currently marketed in both pharmaceuticals and dietary supplements as a cholesterol-lowering agent. While the new research looked at intake from both food sources -such as lean meat, fish, nuts, dairy products and cereals- as well as supplements, it could open up a new target area for niacin-rich foods and supplements.

There are currently nearly 18 million people with dementia in the world, and the most common cause of this dementia is Alzheimer's disease. By 2025 this figure will rise to 34 million, with 71 per cent of these likely to live in developing countries.

The Rush researchers recruited almost 4000 people aged 65 and older, who had no Alzheimer's disease at the start of the study. They filled out a dietary questionnaire and were checked for any signs of decreasing mental agility (cognitive decline) three and six years later.

At three years, a random sample of 815 people, who had not initially had Alzheimer's disease, were checked for clinical changes and their dietary niacin intake assessed by means of food frequency questionnaires.

Among this smaller group, 131 people were diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease.

After adjusting the results for age, gender, race, educational levels, and the ApoE gene - all important risk factors for the disease - those with the lowest food intake of niacin (an average of 12.6 mg/day) were 80 per cent more likely to be diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease than those with the highest intake (22.4 mg/day).

An analysis of the larger group showed that the rate of cognitive decline among those with the highest niacin intake was almost half (44 per cent) that of those with the lowest intake.

Previous research has indicated that niacin has an important role in DNA synthesis and repair, neural cell signalling, and acts as a potent antioxidant in brain cells, said the researchers.

How To Preapare IT

An infusion is a method of preparing herbs, usually prepared with boiling water and dried herbs,

Place the dried herb or the filtrant tea bag into a cup then fill the cup or container with boling water and cover it and let it rest for some minutes before drinking. It is better that you don´t use sugar because it may alter the chemical composition of the infusion.

It is necessary to use boiling water and not hot water because only the boiling will accelerate the extraction of the natural nutritional susbtances of the herb.

Do not boil the tea bag or the infusion together or you will loose the medicinal properties of the herb.

The adversaries of Andean culture, who condemn the coca plant, with a glass of whisky in one hand and a cigarette in the other, clamour for its eradication and treat its producers as pariahs should give a plain answer to the following questions: If alcoholism is one of the greatest scourges in Europe and responsible for the slow extermination of the indigenous populations in America, why is the cultivation of the vine not eradicated, even though the vine incarnates one of the elements of the old world's identity? Since the tobacco habit is responsible for a huge number of victims in consumer societies, why is it impossible to prohibit the growing of tobacco? Obviously, no answers will be forthcoming.
