Camu Camu (Vitamin C superstar)
Camu Camu powder (Myrciaria dubia)
The world's strongest natural Vitamin C
Camu Camu is sourced from the berries of a tree that grows in swampy & flooded areas of the Amazonian Rain Forest.
It is reputed to be the richest source of natural Vitamin C on the planet.
Camu Camu is ecologically harvested in the Peruvian Amazon, where it is carefully prepared into a powder preserving the important phytonutrient content.
It is very rich in iron, niacin, phosphorus, potassium, riboflavin, beta-carotene, minerals & amino acids including serine, valine & leucine.
Recently it has been gaining recognition for its benefits in supporting the immune system and its contribution to an overall feeling of well being. It has antioxidant properties with the capacity to scavenge free radicals and protect cells from oxidative stress.
This is a true 'superfood' which can be incorporated into smoothies or made into a healthy, refreshingly flavoured drink.
Take one or two level teaspoons daily.
