The main benefit of Camu Camu is related to its extremely high vitamin C content.It has more than acerola or any other known fruit on the market. While this is a good thing, by itself it wouldn’t make the plant as healthy as it is. Any food supplement of synthetic or natural sourcemay offer similar levels of vitamin C. The proven health benefits we all associate with vitamin C are actually created by the intricate interaction of numerous supportive co-factors found only in whole food.

So the difference is found within the unique composition of nutrients available within Camu Camu and that it is possible to keep all those nutrients together with a very high vitamin C content during production – if done right. Such a whole food product has a very good bio availability, which means that the nutrients can be easily absorbed by the body. It will further provide all the health benefits which the CamuCamu plant has to offer. This goes behind the health effect of other sources of Vitamin C.

The Vitamin C provided through such a whole food Camu Camu powder is a highly effective antioxidant. Even in small amounts it can protect molecules in the body (proteins, fats, carbohydrates, DNA and RNA) from damage by free radicals that can be caused by normal metabolic processes and exposure to environmental toxins. Vitamin C is as well known to be able to regenerate other antioxidants such as vitamin E.
