What Is It?
Our Camu Camu is 100% pure Certified Organic, different to the previous product we were selling in that it now contains no manioc root powder. We’re happy to report that our Camu Camu is no longer spray dried, as Australian law now allows us to import 100% organic Camu Camu pulp, dehydrated at low temperatures. This results in a Vitamin C percentage of over 12%: that’s 30 to 60 times more Vitamin C than an orange. What’s more, since our Camu Camu is a whole food in its full-spectrum natural form, your body can absorb the nutrients contained within much more effectively than it will absorb any synthetic supplement.
Camu Camu (Mycaria Dubia) is a bushy tree that grows in black water rivers, especially along abandoned watercourses known as cochas. Each year, the river floods, bringing nutrients to the soil and avoiding the depletion associated with typical farming methods; these are ecosystems of great social and economic importance to the Amazon jungle in Peru. Growing in these swampy areas, it takes years for the tree to become mature enough to bear fruit. The fruit of the tree is approximately 2 centimeters in diameter and has a purplish red skin with a yellow pulp.
Camu Camu is traditionally made into a juice by people of the rainforest to support the immune system, ward off viral infections, and help maintain optimal health, especially under conditions of stress and anxiety, which tend to deplete the immune system. It also contains bioflavonoids, the amino acids serine, valine, and leucine, plus considerable quantities of thiamine, riboflavin and niacin. Camu Camu helps to promote healthy gums, eyes, and skin and supports the functions of the brain (nervous system) and heart (circulatory system).
How To Use
Take 1 teaspoon of Camu Camu Powder at least once a day. Simply stir it into a glass of water. Alternatively, mix it with your favorite juice, smoothie or dessert to add a tangy citrus flavour.
Growing & Processing
Dehydrated at below 40 degrees Celsius and milled into powder, our Camu Camu is pure 100% Certified Organic.
