Natural CARAO FRUIT for Blood Health


Photo Lloyd StandishMy name is Lloyd Standish. Since 2002 it has been my privilege to introduce carao fruit natural blood builder to the world through this website. During this time, I have received hundreds of emails from people who have used this natural fruit to improve their blood values.  The improvement is principally to low hemoglobin and red blood cells, but there are also reports of improvement of low platelets and ferritin.

For centuries, carao fruit has been known in Costa Rica and other Central American countries as a natural, low-iron remedy or therapy for low blood values (anemia). In recent years its effectiveness has been shown by clinical evidence, scientific studies, and reports from carao users around the world.  It is used with amazing results for sickle cell disease in Nigeria and Kenya.

Note that low hemoglobin and/or low red blood cell count is referred to as "anemia" (spelled "anaemia" in UK).  Anemia is not a disease, but rather a state of low blood values which can be caused by blood loss as well as a large number of disease conditions. 

  • Carao fruit helps build healthy blood though nutritional support.
  • It does not treat any disease or condition.
  • There are no side effects.
  • It is not an iron supplement.  Chemical analysis shows it to be low in iron.

How a 4-year-old Girl Helped Bring Carao Fruit to the World

photo Keisy During 2002, the first year of carao production in Costa Rica, I had a very moving experience with a little girl named Keisy Meléndez.  I would like to share this beautiful story with you.

Keisy Meléndez was born with anemia, from an anemic mother.  By age 3 her anemia had stunted her growth and mental development so much that she looked - and behaved - like a 16-month-old.  Keisy slept almost constantly and could not walk.  read more »

Is Carao Fruit Right for Me?

Here are the most common reasons to choose carao fruit for blood-building:

  • preference for a low iron, natural remedy for anemia.
  • avoid the side effects of iron and/or drug treatment * (Carao has NO side effects.)
  • avoid or reduce blood transfusions
  • reduce or eliminate crises and transfusions in sickle cell patients

Carao Frequently Asked Questions

We have seen it to be very effective to improve blood values for those with iron deficiency anemia and anemia caused by excessive blood loss (menstruation, etc.), including some cases that were unresponsive to iron treatment.  It has also given amazing results in cases of anemia of pregnancy and anemia caused by chemotherapy, kidney failure, and thalassemia.  More recently we have received reports of excellent blood health benefits for those with hemolytic anemia.  And a Nigerian pediatrician has recently called it "a new dawn in the management of Sickle Cell Disease and Anaemia."  These results cause me to believe it is beneficial for blood health support in most cases of low blood values.

On the other hand, much less benefit can be expected for patients with thalassemia major or other diseases which severely inhibit the functioning of the bone marrow.  However, we have received reports of transfusions being necessary less frequently in some of these cases.  read more »
