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.
