The Camu Berry is one of the world's most abundant sources of Vitamin C, and in fact, is the highest documented sources 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.
The powerful nutrients found in the camu berry have a wide range of therapeutic effects. Vitamin C is found in especially high concentration in the camu berry. Navitas Organics Camu Powder is a red-orange powder with a tart berry flavor that blends well with fruits, juices or sweeteners.
Navitas Organics 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. The plant has adapted to flooding and is able to survive submersed in water for more than five months. Abundant rains nourish the growth of small fruits that are hand-harvested by families who have settled along rivers and expertly direct their canoes for collection.
To make our Camu Powder, seeds from the camu berries are removed, then the fruit is slow-dried and low-temperature milled into a fine soluble powder. Our Camu Powder contains no fillers or carriers, just pure, vital camu berries.
