Inca Berry Products

Inca Berry Products

This berry is thought to be very exotic since it grows with a beautiful crisp lantern shaped calyx surrounding the fruit and looks rather outlandish. Indigo Herbs Organic Inca Berries are a perfect representation of this fantastic Peruvian fruit in dried form and are packed with more vitamin C than oranges. Inca Berries aren’t in fact a berry at all but related to the nightshade family with their closest relation being the tomatillo or ground tomato. These small marble shaped yellow fruits look exactly like small tomato’s but have a much sweeter citrus like taste.

An original resident of Peru, where it is called ‘aguaymanto’, this fruit travelled to Europe where it became very popular in late 18th century England. Loved for its papery calyx and striking looks the plant was eventually naturalised and grown throughout the UK. Inca Berry then travelled to South Africa and then to Australia under the name ‘Cape Gooseberry’. Mistaking this pseudonym for the origin of this fruit many people believed that the Inca Berry came from Africa. Some believe that Inca Berry is the lost crop of the Incas which led to Americans calling the fruit ‘Pichu berry’ after the famous Andean lost city of Machu Picchu.

The Inca Berry resembles the tomato plant although a little more robust. In fact at the height of the fruiting season the Physalis peruviana plant is less trouble to look after than the ordinary tomato. Shrub-like and typically around 1 metre in height, producing juicy berries ranging in colour from yellow through orange to light brown, and containing up to 200 small edible seeds. The thin pretty calyx that covers the fruit forms protection from birds, insects and bad weather.

High in Potassium

Potassium, the third most abundant mineral in the human body, is an essential mineral whose ions are vital for the functioning of all living cells!  Potassium plays a role at both the cellular and electrical level – considered and electrolyte because it carries a tiny electrical charge – it is found in red blood cells, muscles and bones.  Our bodies use potassium ions to conduct electrical impulses along muscle and nerve cells, it helps to boost the efficiency of nerve reflexes that transmit messages from one body part to another, this in turn helps in muscle contraction to perform various activities without tiring quickly. 

Potassium also has vasodilating properties that work to relieve the tension of blood vessels which is one of the main causes of high blood pressure.  It is helpful in reversing the role of sodium in unbalancing normal blood pressure thus acting as a vital component that maintains the normality of blood pressure in the human body.  The importance of potassium should not be underestimated in your dietary plan, most famously found in bananas other rich sources of potassium include spinach, avocados and coconut water.

Potassium contributes to:

·         normal functioning of the nervous system

·         normal muscle function

·         the maintenance of normal blood pressure

High in Phosphorus

Next to calcium, phosphorus is the most abundant mineral in the body.  In order to be properly utilised it must be in proper balance with calcium and magnesium in the blood, these are the two minerals it works in tandem with to create strong bones and teeth, also helping to lay the foundation of a strong skeletal structure.  It is an essential part of our diet - especially as children when the most bone growth and development occurs.  Both DNA and RNA contain phosphorus which make it important for cellular reproduction. 

Phosphorus also contributes to the repair process and maintenance of various body cells which suffer from daily wear and tear, it makes up part of the phospholipids that surround cells - phospholipids help to protect and regulate what goes in and out of each cell.  Phosphorus plays an essential role in how the body stores and uses energy, it aids in the process of energy extraction by stimulating the process of metabolism of different nutrients including niacin(B3) and riboflavin(B2), helping to maximise the uptake of these two vitamins in particular.  The best sources for this mineral are chlorella, dairy, whole grains, legumes and nuts.

Phosphorus contributes to:

·         the maintenance of normal bones

·         the maintenance of normal teeth

·         the normal growth and development of bone in children

·         the normal function of cell membranes

·         normal energy-yielding metabolism

These are my new favorite snack! I love the sourness because it makes them refreshing. I always find raisins and cranberries too sweet for my taste.
