Why You Need It
What is Camu Camu?
Camu Camu is a fruit that comes from the rainforest of Peru and is one of the highest plant sources in the world for vitamin C. While you won't normally find fresh Camu Camu fruit in your local grocery store, you can still enjoy its many health benefits with these supplement capsules.
Camu Camu Benefits
Get a boost of vitamin C, antioxidants and more from this Camu Camu fruit extract supplement. Made from whole Camu Camu fruit with no fillers or additives, the result is pure and natural support for your immune system.
Note that this is not your standard ascorbic acid, synthetic vitamin C supplement. Ascorbic acid is an isolated nutrient usually made from corn, often from China, and the body tends to move it out of the system very rapidly. Hence the high dosages to attempt to provide enough to be healthy. Mineral-buffered vitamin C is another attempt to provide it in a form that the body can use better. The latest craze is attaching vitamin C to fats to try to get it to stay in the body for use.
But these synthetic forms don't have the potential of natural whole food vitamin C.
Vitamin C is meant to be consumed with its naturally-occurring bioflanoids and other macro- and micronutrients in order to be well-utilized in the body and support health. This superfood Camu Camu fruit is one of the highest natural sources in the world, and comes packed with bioflavonoids, amino acids like leucine, serine and valine, also B vitamins, beta-carotene, potassium, ellagic acid and other antioxidants.
Natural vitamin C is used in:
- Cellular respiration and cleansing
- Formation of collagen - a protein which forms the structure of connective tissue, from a Greek word for "glue". It makes up about 30% of the protein in the body and is found especially in ligaments, tendons, cartilage, bones and muscles, aiding joint strength and muscle tone. And in the skin, the cornea of the eye, blood vessels, gut lining, spine and dentin of the teeth. You need collagen! - but its production declines with poor nutrition and aging.
- Supporting the immune system so it can fight invaders off
- Supporting healthy gums and teeth
- Supporting eye health and the nervous system
Camu Camu is known for its unusually high vitamin C content, with 30-60 times more vitamin C per weight than an orange. Talking about the amount of vitamin in the powder is somewhat deceptive because the vitamin C in this whole fruit superfood is so well utilized in the body in comparison to common supplements containing ascorbic acid. The Camu Camu in each serving offers 400 mg of natural vitamin C in a powder to mix into juice, smoothie,yogurt, etc.
Since it's from a whole food source, not synthetic, you get far more benefit long term than from the higher dose of isolated ascorbic acid or mineral ascorbate you have been led to believe is needed. And if you want to take double doses, you can without eating double the additives. This Camu Camu is completely additive-free.
Necessary Companion to Sulfur MSM Supplements
Along with vitamin C, your body uses organic sulfur (often known as MSM) to create new, healthy cells and connective tissue. An adequate supply of sulfur and Vitamin C together synergistically support healthy cell regeneration. Organic sulfur allows for better absorption of nutrients while helping to create flexible, soft and smooth skin and hair, and joints. You might want to supplement with both!
