What is Camu Camu?
Camu Camu (Myrciana dubia) is a low-growing shrub found thriving along riversides in the Amazon Rainforest throughout Peru and Brazil. It bears red-purple cherry-like fruits that are becoming increasingly more treasured around the world as a “rainforest super-fruit” due to their rich supply of vitamin C—more so than oranges!—as well as their naturally-occurring bioflavonoids and phytonutrients.
It has only been in recent decades that the value of these fruits has been appreciated by those living in its natural habitat, let alone by people worldwide. The people of the rainforest in South America drink a sour-sweet juice made from the fruit to support immune wellness, thanks to its supply of vitamin C.**

Camu Camu is often found as a sweet and sour powder that can be added to smoothies, yogurt, or other recipes to enhance the nutritional content. It has recently become popular in supplement form as well, typically as an extract of the fruit.
