Camu Camu's Vitamin C
Sourced from the Camu Camu plant and pure high dose Vitamin C to support the immune system.
What is Camu Camu?
Camu Camu is another sour berry that is incredibly rich in nutrients, but this one hails from the rainforests of the Amazon instead of India. Once again, outside its native home, you’ll be most likely to find it in powdered form, but if you’re lucky, you might also find juice.
The berries look a bit like un-ripened, greenish-red cherries, but they grow on a shrub in swampy areas, rather than on a large tree. They’re also larger than cherries, closer to the size of a small lemon.
Camu camu is mostly famous for its rich Vitamin C content, providing over 750% of your recommended daily intake in a single teaspoon. It should also be recognized and praised for the wide variety of antioxidants packed into these small berries.
Camu camu has been studied as a potential protective agent against free radical damage, which is a key contributor to everything from heart disease to cancer. The benefits of drinking camu camu juice seem to come from the whole food source, because it’s not just Vitamin C at play, as the control group was given straight Vitamin C.
