What is Camu Camu?

The majestic Camu Camu fruit is an amazing superfood with incredible antioxidants and anti-viral properties that support health and wellness.  Found in the Amazon rainforests of South America, Camu Camu is the world’s leading source of Vitamin C.  Along with many other powerful nutrients, Camu Camu may be nature’s disease-fighting and anti-aging machine.

Small but mighty, Camu Camu packs a mean punch of nutrients that bodies need for everyday cellular function and to fight of potential threats to the body’s healthy rhythm.  With 1180% the daily recommended dose of Vitamin C, Camu Camu is an obvious source of energy and immune system strength.  Vitamin C is a vital antioxidant that is required for healthy cells and tissues.  It helps the body produce collagen, which is essential for the elasticity of our skin, cartilage, joints, tendons and blood vessels, as well as building strong bones, teeth and gums. 

As an antioxidant, Vitamin C helps to block free radicals that can damage cells and cause serious diseases including cancer.  Camu Camu is also an anti-inflammatory making it a terrific disease-preventing nutrient.  Oxidative stress from inflammation increases risk of many common physical, neurological and mental diseases and illnesses.  By supporting healthy blood and arteries, research indicates that consuming Vitamin C may lower risk factors of heart disease, stroke and high blood pressure.  And Vitamin C, as well as the antioxidants flavonoids, gallic acid and ellagic acid found in Camu Camu, is celebrated for its anti-aging properties because it helps energize and refresh our bodies, from our eyes, to our blood, to our skin. 

As if its Vitamin C content weren’t enough, Camu Camu boosts Vitamin C’s effectiveness because it contains a ton of other vitamins, minerals and amino acids that help the body absorb it.  And the nutrients we eat are only useful if our bodies have the chance to absorb, process and distribute the goodness throughout our bodies. 

Along with antioxidants, amino acids are another strong suit of Camu Camu.  Amino acids are the building blocks of protein, which forms cells and helps them communicate across our bodies for every necessary function of life.  With amino acids like valine, leucine, serine, Camu Camu supports cognition, digestion, muscle and bone growth, production of hormones and the nervous system.  These amino acids also prevent breakdown of bodily systems caused by foreign substances, injury and natural age-related deterioration.

It’s hard to believe that one small superfruit from the Amazon can have so many health and healing properties.  But the benefits of Camu Camu are phenomenal and research is underway to discover new ways it can improve our bodies and prevent disease and infections.  Perhaps its anti-viral qualities hold the secret cure for the common cold?  Or maybe it will unlock to secret to preventing cancer?

Regardless of what the future holds for Camu Camu, we know it is a magnificent tool to help sustain health and wellness every day.  And fortunately, we don’t have to travel to South America to enjoy the benefits of Camu Camu.  Zokiva can deliver its nutrients right to your doorstep in a formula four times more powerful than regular Camu Camu Powder.  Now that’s a quadruple reason to start taking Camu Camu today!
