Wanting to provide a non-chemical-based vitamin C for her family, Cyndi found that Camu Camu is one of the richest sources of real food vitamin C available – oranges contain approx. 50mg per 100g, while Camu Camu has around a whopping 10,000mg per 100g of fruit! Camu Camu has grown abundantly along the Amazon River for centuries. Our director Howard O’Meara (Cyndi’s husband) travelled to South America and spent many long hours travelling the area and talking with the people to secure some Camu Camu for Changing Habits. The berry is harvested by the indigenous people using traditional methods as part of a Fairtrade project. The locals have always known the benefits of Camu Camu and have used it for generations as a food and medicinally.
Vitamin C is well known to help the immune system but is has many other benefits including helping with iron absorption and bone and cartilage structure, and reducing tiredness and fatigue. This potent berry has a zingy citrus flavour which can be added to smoothies, raw slices, jellies or juice. We supply our Camu Camu as a powder, not only because this makes it more versatile, but also because the capsules can contain dubious ingredients and a flow agent may be used (a Changing Habits no-no).
Camu Camu is a food with a tangy citrus taste, so it can be added to smoothies, coconut water, sprinkled on fruit or CADA, added to raw protein bars or just stirred into a glass of filtered water. We recommend 1/2 tsp per day. You may increase to 1 level tsp per day in times of stress, as well as to prevent colds and flu, or when you are suffering from a compromised immune system. It is advised NOT to heat this nutrient rich food.
