Want a little more information? Here you go:
Camu camu is a bush, native to the South American rainforest, that grows in the black water rivers of the Amazon. Its small, purplish red fruits are a rich source of antioxidants and powerful phytochemicals that support and enhance health.
Camu camu fruits contain more vitamin C than any other plant in the world from 30 to 60 times more than an orange. They also contain amino acids including serine, valine, and leucine; and significant levels of beta carotene, calcium, iron, niacin, phosphorus, riboflavin, and thiamin.
The phytochemicals in camu camu are highly effective in curbing the effects of the herpes virus; in fact, on a list of plants with anti-herpetic compounds, camu camu takes the highest honors as most potent. It is effective against depression, and has even been used to wean users off dangerous antidepressive medications (under medical supervision, of course.) Alternative medical practitioners have also been using it to combat attention deficit disorder.
Camu camu also:
- Provides immune system support
- Helps maintain good eyesight
- Reduces inflammation
- Supports collagen, tendons, and ligaments
- Helps fend off viral infection
- Improves respiratory health
- Helps maintain clarity of mind during stress
USDA-certified organic in the form of a pure, unadulterated powder with a light tan color. It takes 15 pounds of berries to make one pound of the powder, which has 13-16% vitamin C by weight. Thus only a little is needed to provide you with a powerful antioxidant boost.
Suggested use: 1 teaspoon one or more times daily mixed in water, juice or smoothies.
