What is Camu Camu?
Camu Camu are small, sour berries that grow on a flowering shrub called Myrciaria dubia. The plant is native to the South American rain forest in Peru and Brazil, but can also be found in Columbia, Ecuador and Bolivia. It has multiple edible parts that have been used medicinally for years. Camu Camu is a superfood most often consumed for its high vitamin C content.
High in vitamin C, manganese, copper, iron, and zinc.
Rich in antioxidants and phytochemicals such as polyphenols, ellagic acid, gallic acid, 1-methylmalate, anthocyanins, and flavonoids.
High in carotenoids like lutein, beta-carotene, and zeaxanthin.
A Short History:
The Camu Camu Berry has been eaten and drunk as a juice by many different South American tribes for over 700 years. The Amazonian Indians traditionally used the fruit to help treat infections, decrease pain, improve joint function, and to extend life.
It wasn’t until the 1950’s that researchers discovered these berries contain the highest naturally occurring level of vitamin C of all plant food sources. Today, there are large farms or tree nurseries that grow the Camu Camu tree to harvest its fruit and make it more widely available.
