What is Camu Camu?
Camu Camu is a shrub grown in the swampy and flooded areas of the Amazon rain forests of Peru, Brazil, Venezuela and Columbia. The fruit and the leaves have been used as medicine by the indigenous people of the Amazon for generations.
Camu Camu is renown for its high vitamin C content. The most special thing about Camu Camu is that the vitamin C is in it’s natural state, accompanied with many other macro and micronutrients allowing it to be more bioavailable than extracted ascorbic acid.
Camu Camu has many strengthening properties including the strengthening of the immune system; fighting against viral infections, cold and flu, and cold sores. It also promotes vitality with increased energy, as well as fighting against gum disease, fatigue, headaches, constipation and inflammatory diseases such as arthritis and much more.
