Other uses include treatment of asthma, “hardening of the arteries” (atherosclerosis), chronic fatigue syndrome, depression, gum disease (gingivitis), headaches, and osteoarthritis.

  • This bushy tree is native to the riversides of the Amazon, and produces a reddish purple cherry-like fruit that is becoming widely known for its high amounts of Vitamin C. This super fruit is traditionally harvested via canoe, and one wild tree can produce up to 25 pounds of fruit a year.

Parts Used - Fruit/Color may vary from light tan to dark brown depending on time of year it is harvested. This is not a sweet tasting fruit and is very tart.

Preparations - Teas, smoothies or other drinks, and baked goods; the powder may also be encapsulated.

  • The high amount of Vitamin C found in the Camu Camu fruit is attracting the attention of naturopaths and nutritionists alike.

  1. Great fresh Camu! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Jul 2021

    I was looking for something to oomph up my immune system, and boy did I find it- and so much more. This Camu Camu gives me the energy I need and I feel brighter and lighter every day- so necessary for this time we are all in right now. This brand a little darker than I'm use to but it is so clean, I am so excited to find a brand I can trust. Can't wait to try their other products. Thank you!

  2. Pure Product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Jul 2021

    Kind of a superfood junkie and have tried many, many brands. This one is at the top of my list. It pairs well in my morning smoothies, shakes, acai bowls and my favorite oatmeal. Aside from the taste and flavor I love the health benefits. If I’m in a rush I’ll grab a few caps that I’d filled with the capsule machine. The powder is a brownish color and a little sticky from the sugar content, but easy to fill the capsules. It also mixes well in my blended or shaken drinks. In the past I ordered from another shop only to find that the pink color and sweet flavor was due to coloring and fillers. This Camu is pure, darker in color, but very flavorful and from what I can tell, Pure.

  3. Was Skeptic 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Apr 2017

    I was really skeptic at first because this wasn't certified organic and stated that it was cultivated in the USA and listed as organically grown. I only ordered 2 ounces because I wanted to compare it with the product I purchased from Mountain Rose Herbs. With the comparison I was astonished to find that the powder I received from Mountain Maus was pure with no additives and is so fresh and the aroma is much stronger than the product received from Mountain Rose Herbs. After reading the label from the product from Mountain Rose Herbs I found out that they add silicon dioxide as a flow agent. I don't know about you, but the reason I am purchasing herbs is to move away from chemicals and additives to herbs that are suppose to be good for you.

    My conclusion - buy your herbs from this shop. They are fresh and the cost is reasonable.
