Camu Camu Berry is a traditional superfruit prized by the indigenous people of the Amazon. These berries are natures richest source of whole food Vitamin C in addition to other antioxidants such as anthocyanins, flavonols and ellagic acid. The concentration of antioxidants gives Camu Camu an incredibly high ORAC value of 3,000 per 1 tsp. 5 gram serving. The ORAC value is a measurement of the antioxidant capacity of different foods.
