I'm a physiology major at UCF. While I was doing some research on the metabolic processes, i came upon a fruit that allegedly increases hemoglobin protein count in blood cells. I've since compiled a few helpful sites on the subject. If this has already been touched on, or is an old subject then let me know, haha. I just thought i'd help out, I don't have anemia and haven't had that much exposure to the entire experience with it, but I wanted to inform, and if i could, get some responses and info about this fruit/product.

Here are links for information about it:
-An anemia board that raised some questions on it

-A Profiteer website that is giving info about it.
and info about product -

-Only person i've found who has distributing "promise"

-A distribution center for Carao extract.

-The tree the plant grows off of

Personal Notes: A a personal fitness nut, this stuff looks really promising. I've read articles about dNa's role in Anemia and long term effects of external cell induction, and I have to say that if the best possible way to get this out is to start making Carao plantations in the states and getting the actual "fruit". The extract/honey is all we got for now unfortunately.
Good luck to you all

I am the author of , a site which promotes carao fruit for anemia. I am also responsible for production of carao fruit essence in Costa Rica ( ). I have a few comments/corrections to your post:

1. promotes carao fruit for anemia. However, sales are done at , which markets carao fruit as a natural food, with no health claims. My company, CR Natural, Inc., provides an excellent product and service, as well as making many donations of carao fruit to poor hospitals in India and Africa. I therefore wonder why you elected to label the website as "profiteering."

2. CR Natural, Inc., is the only producer and exporter of pure raw carao essence. We originated the low temperature evaporation process for carao fruit. All other sources of carao are to my knowledge cooked, and far more dilute than our pure essence. I think our position as industry leader qualifies us as having "distributing 'promise'."

3. Carao is more than "allegedly" effective for anemia. There is scientific proof that carao does indeed raise both hemoglobin and RBC.( ) In addition, we are steadily accumulating more and more reports of wonderful results from around the world.

4. Carao is the fruit of a wild tropical tree which will not grow in the United States, except Hawaii. The "actual fruit" is a woody pod which cannot be consumed by human beings. The pure extract of the pod is the only form in which it can be used.

Good for you for coming back on this one. Profiteering suggests improper conduct. Making a profit and profiteering are two entirely different things. I didn't like the tone of the comment either.

To gbo: Sorry for the delay in answering. To my knowledge, the only source of pure carao fruit is the website at . Shipment (by airmail) can be made to Australia with no difficulties.

I just ordered two bottles from your website. I am anemic due to not eating right and taking care of myself due to a lot of stress. It got to the point that my hair started to thin out and I used to have very thick, beautiful hair. I don't want to take chemicals and have been looking for an organic alternative. I'm hoping this will work since I have gotten rid of some of the major stress...not all...and have gone back to a healthier way of eating. I start my exercising next month. I'll be happy to post how I'm feeling after I start taking the Carao. Thanks.

It's too bad that Gabe used the word "profiteering" as it seems so emotionally charged. I rather doubt he meant it that way, but probably just wanted to point out that the site's purpose is to promote the sale of a product. Yes, Lloyd, I know you have two separate web sites, but that's because the law requires you to separate your product information/claims from your product sales (at least in the USA).

I, for one, will be checking out both sites, as I am up for trying just about anything to help with anemia.

I have ordered Carao fruit syrup from Lloyd Standish,
and found him to be a professional, respectful, and quite knowledgeable person in regards to anemia.
I found relief, health, when I first took it, and, am
now, taking it again with history of my own that it will help me with out hurting me.
I have told friends about it who also have anemia
and I hope they will have as much help as me.

Dear Sir/Madam,
I'd love to buy 100% pure carao in London. I'm 7 month pregnant and have anemia and thalassaemia. But I just found one website which sells carao and is about £95.00 which is too much for me. Do you any place or website in the UK that I can buy it from?
Please let me know through my email

This definitely cured my anemia five years ago. I just ordered another bottle today because I am tired much of the time and it gives me energy.

I admit that I absolutely hate the taste and smell; but I take it straight from the bottle instead of mixing it.

When it cured my anemia, my doctor perscribed iron pills for me. I've been perscribed those off and on through the years and iron only makes my stomach hurt.

When I first started taking it, I felt a burst of energy and told my doctor at the next appointment that I was cured. She did a blood count and said it was up but not out of the anemic range just yet.

By the time I returned 2 weeks later, my blood count was officially above the anemic range. I bought some about 2 years later but I still hate the taste. So my athelic son started taking it in soy milk and actually liked the taste and loved the energy and especially physical performance it gave him.

I LOVE THIS EXTRACT. It really works!

Hello everyone,
I was ready this posts and I think maybe I have some information that will help you. I have a 8 mo old baby boy who was diagnostic with Sickle Cell Disease, his hgb have been very low since he was 4 mo.The doctor was up to give him a transfusion when I found Mr. Lloyd web site. Now we are up to complete 2 mo that my little one is taking Carao. You can't believe how good he looks and actually is right now. Before his hands, feet and lips was very pale, now sometimes I think he has fever, because is too red. He makes me tired because he is a very active boy. Another important point is because of his anemia he was not eat much and was always tired, in less than one mo he start to eat normally. His hematologist couldn't believe how good he looks when we saw him 2 weeks after my baby start to take Carao.
I stronger recommend you to give a try. I'm sure that you will not regret. It's amazing.
By the way is very easy to deal and buy the Carao from the web site and the shipment is right on time.
Good luck everybody.
