About Organic Camu Camu Peru
Camu Camu has only recently emerged as a nutritional superstar, and is currently the subject of much research into its properties as a food. A unifying conclusion of early studies is that the fruit has enormous potential, due to the combination of bio-available vitamin C and supporting phyto-nutrients that it offers. Vitamin C is one of the human diet's absolute essentials. We need it to build and maintain healthy skin, nerves, muscles and bone. Since experiments in the 18th Century into the causes of the ascorbate (vitamin C) deficiency scurvy, it has been an accepted fact of human nutrition that we must include it in our diets. Camu camu has a sharp, fruity taste, and makes an interesting ingredient in food. It is a very worthwhile fruit which has been part of the diet in its native Amazonian region for many centuries. Certified organic by the Soil Association. We recommend that you add 1 teaspoon to water, juice or a Smoothie. Camu camu powder can be used one or more times daily. Store in a cool, dark and dry place.
