Product Description

Details

The Camu Camu fruit is the new hottest superfood! The berries’ increasing popularity is based on their high antioxidant potential and nutrient density. These powerful berries blossom in the heart of the Peruvian rainforest on the riverside shrub known as Myrciaria dubia. They cannot, however, be consumed in their original state, because of the high acidity. (1). The berries are instead consumed as supplements in powder, juice or puree form. Our organic powder consists of only lyophilized Camu Camu berries. This is a freeze-drying process that uses low temperatures, rather than dehydration, to ensure that the nutritional quality of the berries remains intact.
This powder is often added to smoothies, shakes or fruit juices and packs a nutritional punch. Eating a variety of fruits and vegetables is essential for reaching your daily needs of vitamins and minerals. However, our organic Camu Camu will definitely help get you there, one teaspoon at a time! But do not take our word for it, read below to see some of the reasons why the exotic, Amazonian fruit is so fantastic!

About Camu Camu
The Camu Camu berry is one of nature’s most nutrient-dense superfoods, packed with antioxidant potential in the pulp, skin and even the seeds (1). The berry is especially popular due to the vast array of bioactive compounds they contain such as vitamin C, polyphenols, flavanols and carotenoids (2). These compounds and are known to have many beneficial effects.
The antioxidant capacity of Camu Camu is unmatched by any of the Amazonian fruits, all of which are known for their high nutrient density. The fruit is also one of the richest known sources of one antioxidant, in particular, vitamin C. In fact, one serving of our organic powder will provide you with more than your entire daily vitamin C needs. That was easy!
Antioxidants help to protect against the buildup of harmful compounds in the body called reactive oxygen species. If these are not eradicated, they can lead to a host of conditions including Cardiovascular Disease, Cancer, Alzheimer’s Parkinson's and Diabetes (3).

Benefits of Camu Camu
- Camu Camu berries have been shown to have the highest polyphenol content of all the Myrciaria fruit family (4). Polyphenols are water-soluble compounds only found in plants that contribute to a range of health benefits such as antioxidation, longevity, heart and brain health (5).
- Our Camu Camu powder is brimming with vitamin C (ascorbic acid) that has excellent bioavailability and stability (6). This simply means the vitamin can be absorbed efficiently and won’t be degraded over time. vitamin C is a crucial nutrient for protection against infection, sickness, and inflammation.
- In a recent study, Camu Camu powder in capsule form was shown to contribute to a significant decrease in fasting blood sugar and cholesterol, after only 15 days of supplementing in healthy volunteers (7).
- Oxidative stress is a cardinal symptom seen in smokers. It is the building up of harmful compounds in the body and is known to be the cause of many diseases. In a 2008 study, supplementing with Camu Camu for 7 days led to decreased oxidative stress in 20 regular smokers (8).

Camu Camu Review by Sam Meier
Wat ben ik blij dat ik deze Biologische Camu Camu heb gevonden. Voorheen kocht ik de Camu Camu van Original Superfoods maar deze is veel goedkoper en qua kwaliteit veel fijner. (Posted on 06/08/2019)
