The benefits of increasing the amount of Vitamin C in your body is well documented. If you are someone that knows a little bit about dieting, then you know this is true. This new power fruit, camu, is being referred to as something that can give you a lot of extra vitamin C. For people who need it, it can be a welcome addition to the body. Vitamin C can help fight off sicknesses and help fortify the immune system in general.
- A 100 gram serving of the powerhouse C-infused fruit, camu camu has 7.5 grams of vitamin C.
- Such a high quantity of vitamin C, 7.5% of its weight, makes camu camu, ounce for ounce, more potent, vitamin-C-wise than the longtime champion, the orange.
- In fact, camu camu has 60 times more vitamin C per ounce than an orange does.
“The fruit is relatively easy to harvest, but there is still no large-scale cultivation in other places except South America, making camu camu an important crop. The berry is full of nutrients that it’s called a “power fruit” with amazing capabilities.”
