Camu camu (Mycaria dubia) is a water-loving bush that grows along riverbanks in the Amazon rainforest. Its small tart 'n tangy fruits are a rich source of antioxidants and powerful phytochemicals, including very high levels of naturally occurring vitamin C - 30 to 60 times more than an orange!
Vitamin C is a key nutrient for immune system support and aids in the absorption of iron. It's also required to repair and regenerate collagen, a key structural component of tendons, ligaments, bones, and youthful skin.
Camu camu fruit also contains amino acids (serine, valine, and leucine) and significant levels of beta carotene, calcium, iron, niacin, phosphorus, riboflavin, and thiamin.
