Natural Source of Vitamin C
The vitamin C from camu camu powder may be even more effective than that of synthetically-derived vitamin C tablets. In a 2008 study published in the Journal of Cardiology, researchers found that camu camu juice had significantly greater antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties than vitamin C tablets with the same levels of vitamin C.
The camu camu berry contains powerful phytochemicals, including the amino acids serine, valine, and leucine, which help build protein and repair our muscles. Camu camu powder is rich in beta-carotene, which converts to vitamin A in the body and has protective antioxidant effects. It is also a good source of calcium, iron, niacin, phosphorus, riboflavin and thiamin.
How Is Our Camu Camu Powder Processed?
To produce the pure camu camu powder, the fresh berries are carefully harvested from a pristine river basin. They are then taken to an organic processing plant where the berries are washed, pulped and dried at low temperatures. The powder is then sifted so that only the smallest, most bioavailable particles pass through. The finished product is a 100% pure dehydrated powder with 13-15% naturally occurring vitamin C content.
