Carefully hand-picked and dried from the South American rainforest, Sunfood Camu Camu powder is 100% certified organic and raw with no additives or fillers! Camu Camu berries are amazing superfruits that are said to contain more vitamin C than any other known botanical source. It is estimated to have 30 times more vitamin C than oranges along with calcium, amino acids and antioxidants that can help aid in the body’s overall health and vitality.
The Indigenous Amazonian people pick the Camu Camu berry (Myciaria dubia) in season, then dry and powder them, turning this purplish-red, cherry-like fruit to a light beige color. It has been traditionally used as a medicinal herb, improving the bodily functions of the brain, eyes, heart, lungs, liver and skin. It is also believed to help ward off the common cold, influenza and other viral diseases, various health conditions such as asthma, edema and heart disease, support strong collagen, tendons and ligaments, decrease inflammation, and help deal with stress and anxiety.
Camu Camu powder also provides a tangy taste that is great for adding to smoothies and desserts, or combining with other Sunfood products.
