In many parts of Mexico, Central American, and the Caribbean, the Chokogou Tree grows over 100 feet tall and produces nuts that are life sustaining... and a SUPER FOOD... no wonder the Mayan’s gathered them as a very important food source.

Maya Nuts (also called bread nuts or ramon nuts) contain a complete protein that’s similar to animal protein because it contains lots of absorbable iron. Maya nuts can be eaten raw or roasted and made into flour and then made into lots of foods (tastes a little bit like mashed potatoes).

Maya flour makes great bread, tortillas, biscuits, cakes, soups, stews, tea, burgers, sauces, cookies, cereal, drinks, pudding, pancakes, ice cream, tamales... and it can even be made into a drink with cinnamon that tastes a little bit like chocolate - wonderful.

Maya nuts contain of lots important nutrients for infants, older people, and women who are pregnant and vegetarians. Maya Nuts contain tryptophan a relaxing agent that helps with insomnia, and maya nuts increase serotonin levels, thus they can elevate mood and help with depression. 

Maya Nuts contain protein, fiber, potassium for good blood pressure, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, copper, iron, selenium for relaxation, vitamins A, B, C, and E...  and lots of powerful antioxidants that prevent cardiovascular disease, strokes, and cancer.

And maya nuts stabilize blood sugar and lower cholesterol too, and fiber helps with constipation and gives you that full feeling... thus you eat less. And maya nuts do not create allergic reactions like walnuts, peanuts, almonds and other nuts do.

When dried the nuts can be stored for 5 years retaining all health benefits. And the tree is adaptable to climate because it can grow in a large variation of temperatures, and thrives on dry rocky soil... and per acre maya nuts provide 100 times more nutrition than corn. 

Many world organizations are helping indigenous people plant maya nut trees, thus sustaining their cultures and bringing back a great food source. You can find the Maya Nut Institute on Facebook... and you can order maya nuts and flour on-line.
