Camu Camu Attributes
The camu camu fruit and or berry is one of the world’s most potent sources of vitamin C packing more than 60 times the amount per serving than the almighty orange. Just think, oranges often have around 1,000 ppm (parts per million) of vitamin C, while the Camu camu fruit can have concentrations as high as 50,000 ppm or about 2 grams of vitamin C per 100 grams of fruit.
Translation: the camu camu berry can offer 50 times more vitamin C than oranges on an ounce-for-ounce basis. Camu camu also provides ten times more iron, three times more niacin, twice as much riboflavin, and 50 percent more phosphorus than its citrus competitors.
Vitamin C and Camu Camu
Vitamin C is known to help with immunity, tissue repair, and healing, as well as with cancer and cataract prevention. Moreover, because the vitamin is naturally occurring in camu camu, the body better absorbs the nutrient than it does from a tablet of the same concentration. Camu appears to be more effective in delivering ascorbic acid than synthetic vitamin C, and also contains bioflavonoids and other phytochemicals.
Vitamin C is complex; it’s not just a single, isolated chemical in its natural form. It is delivered through power foods like camu in combination with several different supporting phytochemicals that make the positive effect of vitamin C even more robust than when taken alone. High-density foods like camu give us the highest nutritional value possible through single sources.
