The aguaje (Mauritia flexuosa) is a fruit tree native to the Peruvian Amazon known as the «tree of life» and recognized for its high vitamin A (beta carotene) content (five times greater than that of carrots And spinach), essential for human nutrition.
Its high vitamin A content makes the aguaje fruit an unparalleled
resource in the diet of children and pregnant mothers, promoting
the formation and maintenance of healthy teeth, soft and bony
tissues, mucous membranes and skin. Vitamin A helps improve
vision, especially in low light conditions.The fleshy part of the fruit
has particularly high amounts of the vitamin, making it effective in
combatting vitamin deficiency, one of the main consequences of
malnourishment in children.
Dissolve one spoonful in juices, shakes or yogurt, or add to fruit salad.
