Palm fruit traditionally used in Peru by women of the Shipibo tribe. The tree of Aguaya is also referred to as the "sacred tree of life" and the fruit is also referred to as the "fruit of feminine beauty". The tree grows in the Amazon region around the Amazon and Orinoco. It grows wild either on the banks of rivers and in floodplains or is purposefully cultivated near villages, both for its fruits and for its aesthetic side - it is considered one of the most beautiful palms and is also called " called "Mother of the Forest". The visual aspect of this palm tree itself evokes a sense of abundance and is therefore also planted in villages. The palm tree provides refuge for rare birds and livelihoods not only for humans but also for tapirs or jaguars.

The female fruit of beauty

The fruit is collected by members of the Shipibo tribe (not only) and is a traditional part of women's diets. This fruit has a high content of vitamin A (retinol) and vitamin C and E as well as protein, fiber and many minerals such as phosphorus, iron or thiamine. Among other things, they also contain a beneficial form of phytoestrogen (a natural hormone similar to female hormones) for the human (and especially female) body, which promotes the natural formation of graceful female lines, contributes to the production of estrogen and balances hormones in the body. In fact, phytoestrogens from the aguaje fruit are recognized by receptors in the female body and hence have such potency. It has a positive effect on the creation of healthy and strong hair and nails and supports the natural beauty of the skin. Consuming this fruit or powder is said to help distribute body fat to the 'right places' (e.g. hips or busts) and is therefore an ideal dietary supplement. They have a beneficial effect in relieving migraines and menstrual cramps. Positive effects can already appear after a few months of regular use. From my own observation 2 weeks. Only a small fraction of women like and dislike eating aguai. In these rare cases, it is mostly women with a very dominant masculine aspect of personality who are also satisfied with this constitution.

Amazonian indigenous women also eat these fruits during pregnancy and after childbirth while breastfeeding, both to rebalance postpartum hormones and to transmit the beneficial effects to the newborn. Aguaje fruit is also given to young children because it promotes healthy growth and development of bones and muscles. They are given to boys up to the age of about seven - women and girls continue to use them. Aguaje's ability to sculpt a female figure has become a well-known phenomenon - there's even a special term: "Aguaje models". These are women of Native American tribes who are distinguished by their natural feminine beauty, beautiful hair and harmonious feminine curves and lines. Aguaje is also very suitable for neutered bitches to heal faster after the operation and has a positive effect on their hormonal balance.
