Camu Camu Berry is a traditional superfruit prized by the indigenous people of the Amazon. It is the highest known fruit source of Vitamin C and contains up to 1,000 times more Vitamin C than an orange. Camu Camu Powder is a superfood that contains all eight essential amino acids needed by the body for protein synthesis and has been shown to help the body produce collagen.
Camu Camu contains antioxidants, minerals, and polyphenols, including 1% Vitamin E. Innovative new research has shown the powder to contain over 1,500 total phytonutrients, making it one of the most nutrient-dense foods in the world.
Camu Camu powder is obtained by crushing the berries and extracting the juice. This process preserves most of the beneficial compounds in Camu Camu Berry that are lost during other extractions. The extract is then freeze-dried at low temperatures to extract all potential enzymes, antioxidants, and nutrients. This process preserves most of the beneficial compounds in Camu Camu Berry that are lost during other extractions. Thus they become more bioavailable for your body.
What are the benefits of taking Organic Traditions Camu Camu Powder every day?
Camu Camu powder tastes tangy, sweet, and acidic all at once- much like a tart cranberry or pomegranate juice drink with a hint of lemonade. Camu Camu powder is rich in essential nutrients like vitamin C, potassium, calcium, and more. It's also high in the natural antioxidant called anthocyanin. These antioxidants help promote healthy skin and strong bones by combating free radicals that can cause chronic disease.
