(NaturalNews) Part of the same Theobroma botanical genus as cacao, cupuacu (koo-poo-ah-soo) is a watermelon-sized Amazonian superfruit that is renowned for its capacity to dissolve body fat, minimize the effects of aging and boost cognitive function. It even holds great promise in attacking colon cancer cells. Healers of the Amazon rainforest have long recognized the benefits of cupuacu. And now savvy health enthusiasts are discovering the outstanding perks of the fruit as well.

What other fruit can lower cholesterol and blood pressure, spark natural weight loss and ease pain and inflammation while improving emotional outlook and memory? Add to this the benefits of radiant hair and skin, a strong immune system, fortification against cancer and a reduction of digestive distress, and it's no wonder that cupuacu is referred to as nature's ultimate pharmacy and fountain of youth.

A time-honored superfruit with remarkable healing properties

Brimming with antioxidants, flavonoids and phytonutrients, cupuacu has been used for centuries in the Amazon to promote energy, encourage cardiovascular health and soothe abdominal discomfort. Especially abundant in vitamin C, the fruit supports weight loss by triggering the production of fat-burning carnitine while reducing the the stress hormone cortisol -- a compound that is infamous for its ability to pack on the pounds. Not only does cupuacu dissolve fat stores, but it also helps the body burn more calories by increasing energy levels. Although it doesn't actually contain caffeine, ingesting the fruit generates a caffeine-like effect, but without the jittery drawbacks or blood sugar crashes.

Cupuacu contains powerful antioxidants called theograndins. These compounds have "shown great promise in destroying colon cancer cells and counteracting the damage of free radicals, which are a main contributor to premature aging," according to Danica Collins in the article "Amazonian Super Fruit Cupuacu Helps You Lose Weight Naturally." Also rich in B vitamins, niacin, amino acids and healthy fats, cupuacu fosters lustrous hair and youthful skin. Cupuacu's impressive essential fatty acid profile also helps support memory and stable moods.

Cupuacu is often used in smoothies, desserts, ice creams and jams. Amy Vergin of Alternative Medicine noted, "While it may smell of chocolate and pineapple, people say it tastes like a pear with a hint of banana. Some have even gone as far as to say that it resembles the taste of bubblegum." The fruit is also beginning to emerge as a popular natural cosmetic addition, found in everything from facial treatments to body lotions. The pulp of the fruit is exceptionally hydrating, with similar characteristics as cocoa butter.

Although the fresh fruit is difficult to source outside South America, several innovative U.S. manufacturers are harnessing the power of cupuacu in the form of supplements, nutritional powders and body care products.
