Navitas Naturals Organic Camu Powder
The camu berry is one of the world's most abundant sources of vitamin C—as much as 60 times more C per serving than an orange. This antioxidant-rich berry from the Amazon is also a plentiful source of potassium, calcium, protein, beta carotene, amino acids and powerful phytochemicals.
Often called the Camu-Camu berry, this fruit grows on a low-growing shrub (Myrciaria Dubia) native to the lush climates along the Black Water River region of the Amazonian rainforest. The buzz about this potent berry has spread around the world, earning it the nickname "nature's vitamin pill." Containing a higher naturally occurring vitamin C content than any other food, camu has long been used for its nutritional and medicinal attributes. Navitas Naturals Camu is grown organically in Peru, where gentle freeze-drying methods are used to protect and maximize the nutrient potential of this extraordinary superberry powder.
Camu fruits are the highest documented source of vitamin C - providing 200 times more than a banana, 56 times more than a lemon, and 30-60 times more than an orange. Camu also contains a broad range of other important nutrients including potent antioxidants, phytochemicals and amino acids, as well as many important vitamins and minerals including beta-carotene and potassium.
