Camu Camu fruit grows in the river deltas of the Peruvian and Brazilian Amazon Rainforest and is the highest documented source of natural Vitamin C complex in the plant kingdom.
It also contains many other essential vitamins and minerals and the synergy of all these nutrients make the vitamin C complex in Camu Camu the easiest for your body to absorb and utilize compared to a single ingredient dietary supplement.
Fresh camu camu's vitamin C content is around 11 x that of blackcurrants, 38 x that of strawberries and 46 x that of oranges.
Our Camu Camu Powder has a delightful citrus flavour that is delicious in smoothies, raw desserts or sprinkled over yoghurt and cereal.
Camu Camu contains the whole vitamin C complex - including co-factors and flavonoids which assist with vitamin C absorption and assimilation within the body. Due to its high concentration of natural vitamin C, Matakana SuperFoods’ Camu Camu Powder is beneficial for the immune system and supports the body in times of increased stress. It also contributes to skin health, circulation, collagen production and cellular protection from free radicals. Sustainably harvested by natives of the Amazon rainforest.

*Our camu camu formula is standardised to ensure it contains at least 20% Vitamin C. As with most naturally grown crops fluctuations due to climatic conditions may affect nutrient levels from season to season. This is dealt with by adding small amounts of ascorbic acid to the Camu Camu powder to ensure you get a standardised dose you can rely on.
