Sunfood Camu Camu Powder

The Secret is Out

Traditionally used by indigenous Amazonian people, camu camu is no longer a secret. Scientific researchers are catching on, and now you can see what camu camu can do for you!


A strong immune system gives you the power to fight foreign invaders and stay healthy. It’s a well known fact that vitamin C is an effective defense against colds and the flu—one study found that “reported flu and cold symptoms in the test group [taking large doses of vitamin C] decreased 85% compared with the control group.”1 Camu Camu berriesCamu camu is one of the highest botanical sources of vitamin C in the world. Researchers observed that camu camu is an anti-inflammatory that is potentially useful “as a functional food for prevention of immune-related diseases.”2 Who needs a vitamin C supplement when a whole food such as camu camu gives you 240% of your daily RDA of vitamin C in just one teaspoon? That’s equivalent to eating more than four small oranges!3 “The super high amount of vitamin C in the powder helps boost my immune system, and I think it's a big part of the reason I haven't gotten a cold this year. It mixed easily with juice and tastes tart and refreshing!” – Lauren “Just started myself and husband on camu camu this week, and am feeling better all ready. Husband was coming down with a cold and this completely reversed it, he could not believe the quick recovery.” – Regina “I work in a pediatric office, where kids just sneeze and wipe their hands wherever. Someone is always sick in our staff. Since using this camu camu powder I have yet to experience any type of cold/flu symptoms. There is no way I would stop taking this. Plus the amount of vitamin C is easier to take than eating that much in food. Thanks! Love it.” – Sophia


A healthy immune system means that your body functions at a higher level. The result? More energy! Check out what people are experiencing: “Since using camu camu, my husband’s energy is through the roof despite his hectic work schedule.” – Jenamarie “The flavor is very rich and I can actually feel a difference in my energy levels since using it.” – Isabella
