Camu (ka-moo)

a berry, often called Camu Camu, that is the fruit of a low-growing shrub (Myrciaria Dubia), native to lush rainforest climates.

The Super C

The small red Camu berry is respected worldwide as “nature’s vitamin pill.” Containing a higher naturally occurring vitamin C content than any other food on the planet, Camu has long been used for its nutritional and medicinal attributes. Navitas Naturals Camu is grown organically in Peru, where gentle freeze-drying methods are used to protect and maximize the nutrient potential of this extraordinary superberry powder.

The Power of Camu

Undoubtedly, camu is most famous for its mega-C content, containing 30 to 60 times more vitamin C than an orange. Yet to further catapult this berry into superfood status, camu also contains many other important nutritional elements -- such as a broad range of antioxidants, phytochemicals, amino acids, as well as many vitamins and minerals like beta-carotene and potassium. The powerful elements found in camu have a wide range of therapeutic effects, making the berry particularly effective in assisting the immune system, fighting inflammation, and serving as a strong anti-viral food. As a potent, whole food carrier of naturally occurring phytonutrients, camu’s nutrition is greatly superior to man-made pills (isolated forms) as it enables optimum utilization of nutrients within the body.

More Than Just a Supplement

Navitas Naturals Organic Camu is an orange powder that has a tart berry flavor that blends well with other fruits or sweetener. Some purists enjoy a simple Camu “punch” -- just stirring a spoonful of the easily-dissolvable powder into a glass of water, and adding a touch of natural sweetener (such as palm sugar or agave nectar). Camu powder also makes a superb addition to juice, smoothies, or stirred into yogurt. Without a doubt, a spoonful of camu will give any recipe a huge nutrient boost and make your body’s day.

Organic Cacao - Certified Organic, Raw, Kosher

This time, we used two different laboratories instead of one, and utilized three different analytical methods: High Performance Liquid Chromatography , Capilary Electrophoresis with UV detection, and Titration. Despite the popular reports circulating the internet, the honest truth remains: even when processed at low temperatures, there is no vitamin C (ascorbic acid) present in cacao.
