The Super C
A small red berry, camu is indigenous to the black water river region of the Amazonian rainforest. Here, it is wild-harvested and highly appreciated for it’s nutritional attributes and medicinal qualities. Often seen as “nature’s vitamin pill,” the little camu berry is packed with more natural vitamin C than any other food on the planet. Using this superberry can bring a plethora of health to the table whether in the Amazonian rainforest or in the jungle of a city.
The Power of Camu
Camu is most famous for its mega-C content, containing 30 to 60 times more vitamin C than an orange. To further catapult this berry into superfood status, it also contains many other potent and 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. These powerful elements found in the camu berry can have a wide range of therapeutic effects, making camu particularly effective in assisting the immune system, fighting inflammation, and serving as a strong anti-viral food. This natural, whole food form of important phytonutrients is more easily digested and utilized by the body over man-made pills and isolated forms of these nutrients.
More Than Just a Supplement
Navitas Naturals Camu is an orange powder with a tart berry flavor that blends well with other fruits or sweetener. Many purists enjoy a simple Camu “punch” -- 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 stevia). Camu powder also makes a superb addition to juice, smoothies, or stirred into yogurt.

DID YOU KNOW?
Canoes – yes, canoes! -- are still the primary method for harvesting the camu-camu berry. Rarely cultivated, camu is wild-harvested from the Amazon basin, where it likes to grow in swampy and flooded areas. Small boats are necessary during harvest as the fruit ripens just in time to correspond with the flooding season.
