CAMU CAMU-THE PETZ™ KITCHEN - Organic Ingredients for Home Cooked Pet Meals & Treats



THE PETZ™ KITCHEN CAMU CAMU is produced from a low-growing shrub native to the Amazon rainforests and Amazon river basins of Peru, which is often harvested via canoe along the river banks. Once harvested, the fruit is slow-dried and gently milled at low temperatures so as to retain its premium antioxidant, nutritional and healthy, natural phytochemical content.

CAMU CAMU has been recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO) as a premium antioxidant, super food, water soluable and fat soluable super berry plus super vitamin and super mineral nutrient powerhouse, which may help your pet's body manage a variety of critical functions, including to potentially help stimulate collagen production due to its strongly antioxidant proanthocyanins, flavonoid and glycosaminoglycans (GAG's) content, which may work to help directly build bone mass, bone strength, bone mineral density, cartilage, joints and joint health, muscles, connective tissues, blood vessels and eye tissue health.

How important is this process? Collagen production is the primary building material of bones, ligament, tendons and tissues of your pet's bones. Collagen forms the rods that give actual structure and strength to every bone in your pet's body, which is required to sustain and nourish the health and strength of your pet's skeletal structure over its lifetime. Collagen production can become even more important in cases of arthritis, bone loss and joint diseases, such as Intervertebral Disk Disease and Degenerative Joint Disease. In traditional medical systems, CAMU CAMU   has been studied for its strong antioxidant plant and fruit actions, its natural anti-inflammatory, anti-aging and skin-reparative phytochemical content, which may help slow down aging and help promote tissue regeneration

The natural plant chemistry of CAMU CAMU may also potentially help stimulate cells tasked with bone formation as well as to help potentially limit bone resorption.

CAMU CAMU contains Vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, C, fatty acids, selenium, calcium, protein, thiamin, bioflavonoids, plus mixed carotenoids (including lutein, astaxanthin and zeaxanthin); resveratrol, glucose, potassium, phosphorous, iron, plus the amino acids serine, valine and leucine; co-factor enzymes, terpenes alpha-pinene and d-limonene and flavonoids, which have been attributed with stimulating up to 30% of cartilage when loss has occurred and its natural phytochemical content may combine synergistically to help promote maximum utilization and absorption of nutrients in the animal body, making it an ideal health boosting addition to all life stage diets.

CAMU CAMU has been attributed with potential health benefits related to eye support, including critical connective tissues of the eye, may help promote collagen production and help enhance connective tissue health related to bones, joints and teeth as well as may help enhance mood. As a powerful anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-viral CAMU CAMU may help build the body’s defense against infections, pathogens and allergen triggers. 

CAMU CAMU's antioxidant and anti-inflammatory plant actions may help reduce inflammation, may help stimulate connective tissues, specifically myelin sheath that may help protect eye health and Central Nervous System pathways, including protein collagen production throughout the body, including bone, teeth and gums. Normally our dogs and cats would obtain these types of critical tissues from prey they eat in the wild. With most pets eating some form of a commercial or home-cooked diet, CAMU CAMU may help supply vital sources of connective tissue and premium nutrition missing in our pet's modern diets that simply cannot be replicated in synthesized foods. 

CAMU CAMU may also help assist in reducing excessive cortisol production, which may be important related to allergies and chronic or episodic stress. It may also help stimulate serotonin production which can affect many body systems and functions, including mood and social behavior, digestion, appetite, sleep quality and memory.
