Product Information


Camu camu, a small, sour berry native to the rainforests of the Amazon, is gaining worldwide recognition as a superfood due to its exceptionally high vitamin C content. The fruit, about the size of a cherry, grows on a bushy tree, scientifically known as Myrciaria dubia, and thrives in flooded areas of the rainforest. The key to camu camu's health benefits lies in its extraordinary nutrient profile. Apart from being one of the richest natural sources of vitamin C – surpassing even oranges and lemons – it also contains a range of antioxidants, amino acids, and minerals that contribute to its health-boosting properties. These nutrients are believed to aid in boosting the immune system, fighting inflammation, and promoting skin health. Harvesting camu camu is a labor-intensive task often done by local communities in small boats, as the trees are partially submerged in water during the rainy season. This practice supports the local economy and helps preserve traditional ways of life. The fruit is typically freeze-dried and ground into powder after harvest, as it is too tart to be eaten raw. This powder is then used as a dietary supplement or added to foods and beverages for a nutritional boost. The growing popularity of camu camu has not only brought attention to its health benefits but also to the importance of preserving the Amazon rainforest and its biodiversity, highlighting the connection between global health, sustainable harvesting, and environmental conservation.
