Camu camu berries**
Camu camu berries are the purple and yellow, cherry-sized drupes that grow on the Myrciaria dubia shrub, which is native to the rainforests of Peru and Brazil. Also known as “camocamo” or “cacari,” the camu camu plant is a relative of the rumberry, or guavaberry, plant. For generations, Amazonian natives have used camu camu berries to create a variety of health-supporting poultices, tonics and other natural remedies.
Known for their natural abundance of vitamin C, camu camu berries are also used as food and are often turned into delicious jams, jellies, ice creams, candies, juices and other sweet snacks and beverages. In Japan, camu camu has become a popular ingredient in energy and sports drinks, as well as other refreshing beverages. You can incorporate camu camu powder into your daily routine to support your body’s natural immune defenses and support eye, skin and digestive health.
One of the world’s best sources of vitamin C and flavonoids**
When it comes to vitamin C and flavonoid content, few superfruits can come close to matching the levels found in camu camu berries. In fact, an article that was published in the journal Food Research International found that a 100 g serving of camu camu berries can provide approximately 1,882 to 2,280 mg of pure vitamin C. This easily exceeds the amount found in other vitamin C-rich fruits, such as cloudberries, acai berries and Barbados cherries. Camu camu also contains:
200x more vitamin C than bananas
60x more vitamin C
56x more vitamin C than lemons
30x more vitamin C than kiwis
As for flavonoids, according to a study that appeared in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, camu camu berries have great antioxidant potential due to their natural abundance of flavonoids, such as anthocyanins and other phenolic compounds. Additionally, the study demonstrated that the main flavonoids present in camu camu berries are kaempferol and quercetin derivatives.
Camu camu has a robust nutritional profile**
While primarily known for their high vitamin C content, camu camu berries contain a multitude of other beneficial vitamins and minerals, such as dietary fiber, protein, iron, manganese, calcium, potassium, magnesium, phosphorus, copper, zinc and B vitamins like niacin, thiamin and riboflavin.
Compared to oranges, gram for gram, camu camu berries contain:
10x more iron
2x more riboflavin
50% more phosphorus
3x more niacin
Additionally, camu camu berries are loaded with carotenoids, such as lutein, beta carotene and zeaxanthin, as well as amino acids like serine, valine and leucine.
Health Tip from the Health Ranger**
“Camu camu is nature's most potent source of full-spectrum vitamin C. Certified organic from the pristine soils of rural Peru, this camu camu has a slightly tangy taste. I love to use it in smoothies for some extra full-spectrum vitamin C. A little of this powder goes a long way.”
