LOOK FOR THE MARK OF QUALITY

Over 20 years ago the founders of Rio Health experienced the benefits of South American herbs themselves, whilst living in Brazil. They felt compelled to share the powerful benefits of these herbs with everyone else. Of course they never let go of their principles: • Fair trading • Sustainability • Responsibility • Uncompromising quality

If you do need help or advice call our product advisors in confidence on 01273 570 987 or e-mail advice@riohealth.co.uk.

It is on these principles that Rio Health was built, and it is with these ideals in mind that we continue to make our unique Rio Amazon range of products and their benefits available to you.

Immune System

Pau d’Arco

“Effective for easing the symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome.” Dr. Gillian McKeith

Author of ‘You are What You Eat’

Who would have thought that the bark of a rainforest hardwood tree could be so beneficial? But it is. Pau d’Arco is full of actives that are thought to help keep the immune system healthy. This powerful herb can be really beneficial if you’re prone to that “run down” feeling. And let’s face it, with our busy lifestyles, most of us feel on less than on top form now and again. But Pau d’Arco can help. Rich in extremely effective, natural actives, this amazing herb can support your overall health by boosting your immunity and helping you feel at your peak all year round and especially in the cold winter months. Pau d’Arco can also help your digestive system too. Taken regularly as part of a balanced diet it can promote good digestion.

Immune System

Camu-camu Rich in naturally occurring Vitamin C. Easy on the stomach – an immune system booster suitable for the whole family. *High in Vitamin C *Supports the immune system *Rich in iron and other nutrients We all know the benefits of Vitamin C. Especially the support it can give to the immune system, and Camu-camu fruit contains the highest concentration of Vitamin C of any food on the planet(!) - with thirty times the level found in oranges. So it’s a fantastic way of giving yourself the ultimate boost.

{

}

“Camu-camu fruit contains the highest concentration of Vitamin C of any food on the planet(!) - with 30 times the level found in oranges.”

Vitamin C also helps the body to absorb iron, and because Camu-camu contains iron itself, it has the double benefit of giving you both essentials at the same time. So you get protection and an energy boost together. Unlike some alternatives, the Vitamin C and iron in Camu-camu are very gentle on your digestive system which is especially beneficial for children and the over 50’s. So if you’re looking for a powerful vitamin C supplement that’s totally natural, look no further than the Amazon.

Common names: Camu-camu, Rumberry. Botanical name: Myrtaceae dubia. Ingredients: 500mg Camu-camu 8:1 extract, equivalent to 4000mg Camu-camu fruit. Recommended usage: 2 capsules per day. Allergens: None.

Adaptogens & Superfoods

Maca A superfood that can stimulate sexual desire and help you to maintain a healthy hormone balance *For a healthy libido *Aphrodisiac *Energy boosting maintain a healthy *Helps hormone balance

“It appears that people taking Maca do have sex more often.”

If the zing’s gone out of your love life, Maca might be the little bit of help you’ve been looking for. Not only will Maca give your libido support, it also helps fight fatigue, which is always a good thing when there’s love in the air. As well as being valued as an aphrodisiac in traditional Andean culture, Maca is also used to remain active – an obvious bonus to anyone. And because the Peruvian people enjoy high fertility it may be more than just a coincidence that they use Maca as a ‘love potion’. As in all maters of love, Maca is mysterious - nobody really knows why it works, but does that really matter? This superfood is packed with proteins, contains valuable vitamins and minerals and must have that certain something that all of us could do with from time to time. And unlike many aphrodisiacs, Maca works for women too. So if you want to put some life back into your loving (and let’s face it, who wouldn’t?), Maca is a perfect partner for both sexes.

Common names: Maca, Peruvian Ginseng, Ayak cichira, Ayuk willku, Maca-maca, Mace, Maino, Maka, Peppergrass. Botanical name: Lepidium Meyenii. Ingredients: Capsules: 500mg Pure powdered Maca root. Recommended usage: Capsules: 3 capsules per day. Allergens: None.

*Adaptogen & tonic herb *Commonly used for a healthy hormone balance *May help reduce stress & fatigue Suma is the common name of a large rainforest root also known as ‘Brazilian Ginseng.’ Like both Asian Ginseng and Rhodiola, Suma is classified as an ‘adaptogen’ by herbalists, meaning that it can exert a balancing effect on multiple body systems. It is often used in periods of stress, fatigue and hormone imbalance, and to aid detoxification.

{

}

“The Brazilians call it 'for everything' for good reason - and have used it as a tonic for hundreds of years it truly is a herb that can be of benefit to everyone.”

In Brazil Suma root is often referred to as ‘Para toda’ – meaning ‘for everything.’ It has been in use for hundreds of years and is still widely used in urban Brazil and North America. Suma root is highly nutritious and contains 19 amino acids, plus high levels of vitamins and minerals. It also has a high content of germanium which is thought to account for its properties as an oxygenator at the cellular level. It helps to increase energy levels a benefit that has led to popular use of the root by athletes. The root is also a source of many other actives, including three important plant sterols that are thought to account for its benefit to the hormonal system.

Rio Rosa Mosqueta Oil 100% Natural Beauty Oil *Reduces the appearance of scars *Diminishes stretch marks and signs of ageing *Helps to keep the skin hydrated & soft South American women have used Rosa Mosqueta for hundreds of years as a beauty oil - but scientific research into its properties has led to a broad use of the oil for the treatment of scars and other damage to the skin. It is frequently used in cosmetics designed to combat wrinkles, stretch marks and other signs of ageing on the skin and is popularly used by celebrities! Rio Rosa Mosqueta oil is pressed from the hips of a wild rose that grows in the Chilean Andes mountains - Rosa affines rubiginosa, commonly known as Rosa Mosqueta. Rosa Mosqueta rosehips contain an extremely high concentration (90%) of Essential Fatty Acids - primarily Omega 3 & 6 fats (GLA) and other nutrients that aid skin repair. Rio Rosa Mosqueta is also available in capsules. Regular supplementation supports healthy skin and promotes ‘beauty from within’ - and can help keep your skin looking young. The capsules can be used as an adjunct to the topical oil.

It’s a rich source of magnesium which helps your body to cope with stress, and with high levels of Vitamin C, B vitamins, and amino acids, a few cups of this tea can give your immune system extra support. No wonder it is the national drink of South America!

The bark of the Catuaba tree has been used for centuries by many rainforest tribes who call it 'The Tree of Love’ or the ‘Tree of Togetherness’ – and have composed many songs in praise of its properties. In the Brazilian state of Minas a local proverb states that “Until a father reaches 60, the son is his; after that, the son is Catuaba’s!”

Damiana Damiana was used as an aphrodisiac by the ancient Mayans, and for over a century it has been used by the modern populations of both Central and South America as a way of reducing nervous tension and improving sexual health in both men and women. Damiana (Turnera aphrodisiaca) is a small shrub with aromatic leaves which are used to make a distinctive and fragrant tea. The aromatic oils found in Damiana leaves probably account for much of its effect and can encourage a positive frame of mind. It also contains the vegetable hormone sitosterol that is believed to be responsible for its stimulating effect on the sexual response in both men and women.

Common names: Damiana, Damiane, Damiana de Guerrero, Mexican Damiana, Mexican Holly, Oreganillo, The Bourrique. Botanical names: Turnera aphrodisiaca, diffusa. Ingredients: Pure shredded Damiana leaves. Recommended usage: 1-3 cups per day. Allergens: None.
