Product No. P19328

Also known as Myrciaria dubia.

Camu camu grows in the Amazonian rain forest of Peru. It produces a fruit with the same name which contains powerful phyto (plant) chemicals. These phytochemicals include the amino acids serine, valine and leucine and more vitamin C than any other known plant in the world - one fruit contains 30 to 60 times more than an orange.
The Camu-Camu fruit is approximately 2cm in diameter and has a purplish red skin with a yellow pulp, which, when processed, results in a pale yellow powder. Each teaspoon of dried, powdered Camu-Camu has approximately 220 milligrams of ascorbic acid and small amounts of thiamin, riboflavin and niacin. It is also rich in bioflavanoids.
