Navitas Naturals Camu Camu Powder 3 Oz
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 low-temperature drying methods are used to protect and maximize the nutrient potential of this extraordinary superberry powder.
Navitas Naturals Camu Powder is sourced from organically cultivated regions of Peru. The small shrubby camu tree has smooth bark and grows along the winding banks of rivers running through the lowland rainforests of Amazonia. This Camu Powder contains no fillers or carriers, just pure, vital camu berries.
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.

Camu powder also makes a superb addition to juices, smoothies and yogurt.
