Camu Camu berry is the highest food source vitamin C. It contains up to 50 times the vitamin C or oranges. Camu camu may support a healthy immune system, support the health of eyes, skin, and connective tissue, and support a healthy mood and brain chemistry.
1/4 teaspoon provides over 200% the RDA for vitamin C.
Camu Camu has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-pain, anti-viral, and nutritive properties and contains natural beta-carotene, calcium, iron, niacin, phosphorus, protein, riboflavin, thiamin and the amino acids valine, leucine, and serine. The extraordinarily high Vitamin C content is thought to be the most important property of the Camu Camu fruit. This makes Camu Camu invaluable for metabolic processes, including the formation of white blood cells, maintaining a healthy immune system, and support for the brain, lymph glands, heart and lungs. Camu Camu appears to provide nutritional support for the brain to optimize its own mood-balancing chemistry.
