The amazing Camu Camu Berry is a fruit that grows in the Amazonian rain forest of Peru. This superfruit fruit is quickly being recognized as a nutritional powerhouse that’s changing the face of health and wellness around the world.
The Camu Camu Berry is the #1 source of vitamin C of any known botanical. It’s actually 3 percent pure vitamin C by weight. To give you a comparison, that’s about 30 to 60 times more vitamin C than oranges!
Most people know about the importance of vitamin C for a healthy immune system. I can’t even tell you how many times one of my clients has called me when they (or one of their family members) were coming down with an illness, and I had them take my Immune Boosting Vitamin C Formula (mainly consisting of Camu Camu Berry) and they were able to knock the illness right back in just a couple of hours.
What most people don’t know is that vitamin C is CRITICAL for many other functions in the body as well.
*Vitamin C is needed for the health of your skin, hair, and nails
*It’s an antioxidant that protects your body from free radical damage
*It’s an essential nutrient for healthy vision
*It protects your body against viruses, cancer, and cardiovascular disease.
Here’s an excerpt from my book The Key to Quantum Health on the power of the Camu Camu berry:
The highest and most potent source of Vitamin C in the world (by far) is the Camu Camu Berry. In a comparative study of the most powerful botanicals in the world Camu Camu ranks #1 in effectiveness for:
*Gingivitis/ Periodontal disease
(And this is just some of the list)
Camu Camu was also ranked #2 against depression and #4 in antioxidants overall. It’s an excellent food for balancing your mood, as it naturally supports an increased serotonin level in the body.
Not only is Camu Camu a rich source of vitamin C, it’s also loaded with phytonutrients, essential vitamins and mineral, amino acids, and enzymes. This is a remarkable superfruit that’s leading the way to better health and wellness for those who are fortunate to know about it.
How to use Camu Camu Berry
You can find Camu Camu Berry powder that’s easily added to several different recipes. Take note to be sure that you’re getting low-temperature processed or freeze-dried Camu Camu powder, because the valuable vitamin C in it is extremely heat sensitive.
Here’s where I get mine: 100% Wildcrafted Camu Camu Powder
Because of the high concentration of vitamin C, Camu Camu has a very strong acidic, tangy taste to it. It’s excellent when you add it to your citrus beverages and juices. Try this:
2 fresh squeezed oranges
1 fresh squeezed grapefruit
1/2 tsp of Camu Camu berry powder
Add to a bottle with a lid, shake, and serve.
Camu Camu is one of the most potent superfoods on the planet, so a little goes a long way. Just one fourth of a teaspoon and you are far surpassing the so-called “Recommended Daily Allowance”.
It’s an excellent food to add to your superfood shakes, as well as tangy salad dressing recipes.
