Camu Camu Powder - Organic
1-2 tablespoons can be added to smoothies, yoghurt, beverages, desserts, and dressings.
Camu Camu is a bushy tree native to the riversides of the Amazonian forest. It was traditionally used as a pain reliever, to treat infections, and to promote longevity. It is one of the world’s most abundant sources of vitamin C and is rich in potassium, calcium, iron, protein and powerful phytochemicals. Since the vitamin C content decreases with maturity, the berry is collected before it fully ripens resulting in a bitter flavour. The wealth of phytonutrients in Camu Camu help boost energy levels and fight ailments by maintaining a healthy immune system. It is also known to help treat chronic fatigue syndrome, the common cold, depression, gingivitis, and headaches.
