Camu Camu Vitamin C -90 Vegetarian capsules
Size: 90 Capsules
Camu Camu is a small plant found throughout the Amazon Rainforest of Peru. It grows mainly in swampy or flooded areas and its height reaches up to 3 m tall. This plant produces round, light orange-coloured fruits, about the size of a lemon, which contain significant amounts of vitamin C.
Camu Camu fruit has one of the highest recorded amounts of natural vitamin C, providing over 2,700 mg of vitamin C per 100 grams of fruit. It is rich in vitamins, minerals and complex amino acids that aide in the absorption of the vitamin C; it is an excellent source of potassium, providing more than 700 mg per kg of fruit!
It is the combination of the nutrients which makes it so unique and therefore the production process is a key factor for quality.
Camu Camu is 100% natural vitamin C containing whole-food bioflavonoids, anthocyanins and other essential co-factors. The Camu Camu berries get harvested while they are still green. This is the moment when they have the highest content of Vitamin C. The fresh fruit is collected by local people by hand, and wildcrafted (harvested within the natural habitat).
