Camu Camu are the red purple berries of the Myrciaria dubia shrub. The fruits are only about 1 inch/3cm in size with a remarkably high zinc and vitamin C content. The fruits are harvested once they reach their highest vitamin content (as immature fruit) and are then gently spray-dried, so that the nutrients are optimally preserved. Camu Camu is recommended as a dietary supplement due to the high levels of natural vitamin C, minerals, nutrients and plant compounds such as Beta carotene and flavonoids.
Vitamin C regulates and supports several essential functions in your body. One of the most important is the stimulation of the immune system. Camu Camu substances also have positive supporting effects with atherosclerosis, stroke and heart attack. Also used in the treatment of respiratory viral infections and asthma.
