Live Superfoods Camu Camu Powder is raw, meaning that it was dried at low-heat temperatures in order to maintain all of its valuable nutrient properties. 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 reasonable levels of beta carotene, niacin, phosphorus, riboflavin, and thiamin. The phytochemicals in camu camu may be effective in curbing the effects of the herpes virus and may also be effective against depression, and has even been used to wean users off dangerous antidepressive medications (under medical supervision, of course.)
