Camu Camu is a bush native to the Amazon rainforest of Peru and has been used as natural medicine by indigenous populations there for thousands of years. The Camu Camu bush produces a fruit with the same name which contains powerful phytochemicals with health benefits, including the amino acids serine, valine, and leucine, and is the second highest natural source of Vitamin C in the world. The camu camu fruit has a surprising range of therapeutic effects. Many people have stopped using large doses of synthetic Vitamin C because they find that Camu Camu is energizing, mood-lifting and highly effective in supporting the immune system.
