Camu Camu – concentrated vital substance power
What the indigenous peoples have known for thousands of years is gradually arriving in this country too: the nutrient-rich fruit of the camu camu bush is a real vitamin bomb!
An average of 2 g of vitamin C is contained in 100 g of fruit flesh. An orange, on the other hand, only has just over 50 mg per 100 g of flesh. Other proven sources of vitamin C such as blackcurrants, rose hips, sea buckthorn or the acerola berry cannot compete with this.
Camu Camu is thus the fruit with the highest vitamin C value worldwide! For comparison…
Unlike lemons & oranges, camu camu has:
30 times as much vitamin C
10 times as much iron
3 times as much vitamin B3 (niacin)
2 times as much vitamin B2 (riboflavin)
And that’s not all!
The content of vitamins B1, B2 and B3 as well as beta-carotene is also absolutely impressive. With regard to minerals such as iron, calcium and potassium, as well as secondary plant compounds, Camu Camu also achieves absolute top values. The latter, along with vitamin C, are considered highly effective antioxidants.
The berries also contain amino acids and proteins. With so much concentrated vital substance power, it is no wonder that the South American berry is said to have a multitude of positive effects on our health.

Where can I get Camu Camu?
Due to the high demand for the vitamin-rich fruit, especially in Europe, there was in many places the overexploitation of wild growing plants. In the meantime, the Camu Camu plant is also cultivated on plantations.
In Germany, Camu Camu is only available in powder form. For this purpose, the fruits are dried in the sun directly after harvesting and then ground into powder. Sometimes the berries are also shock-frozen in a special process and then peeled and ground. When buying a Camu Camu product, you should make sure that the powder is naturally pure and comes from cultivated cultivation.
In our vitality product FlamEXX comp you will also find this natural extract in a highly dosed form and in combination with other valuable cofactors.
