This untamed wilderness is home to as many as 40,000 species of plant!

Camu camu is a wonderful shrub that grows in the Amazon rainforest, and its fruit and leaves are used for medicinal purposes. They are often used as immune stimulants, due to their high content of vitamin C.

Camu camu has exceptionally high levels of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties, that can help:

  • Fight inflammation

  • Eye health / increase vision

  • Skin conditions

  • Enhance mood levels

  • Fight viral infections

  • Fight Cold sores and herpes

  • Fight Shingles

  • Boost Immune system

  • Fight common cold

  • May help with hair growth and guard against hair loss

Camu camu is typically found in powdered form which makes it easy to add to smoothies, porridge or yogurt.

Top tip: Best eaten in cold foods. High temperature can destroy its nutritional compounds.
