Deep in the Amazon, Camu Camu berries are picked and dried at a low temperature. These dried berries are then ground into a super fine powder, making it an easy addition to your superfood beverages and desserts. Camu camu has an extraordinarily high vitamin C content, and also contains the amino acids valine, leucine, and serine. They have been traditionally used as a medicinal herb, improving the function of the brain, eyes, heart, lungs, liver, and skin. It can help ward off the common cold, influenza and other viruses, and helps with stress and anxiety, making an excellent addition to your life. Sunfood organic Camu Camu Powder comes from sustainable farming practices in Peru, which is very important to keep in mind now that over harvesting is threatening to make it an endangered species.
