Camu Camu is the fruit of a bush, which grows naturally in the Amazon region of South America, where the climate is hot and humid. Whilst the fruit has been consumed locally for centuries, it has recently caught the attention of nutritionists, as it is one of the world’s richest sources of the antioxidant Vitamin C. As a comparison, the tart-tasting, cherry-sized Camu Camu fruit contains between 30-60 times more Vitamin C than an orange, with its content making up to 12% of the product. Its Vitamin C, and other nutritional content has a key role in preventing oxidative-stress cell damage, in turn having a positive anti-ageing effect, as well as providing support to the body’s immune system, cartilage, bones, blood vessels and the brain. Sevenhills Wholefoods’ Camu Camu is in fine powder form, which is easily consumed and added to your healthy diet. We recommend adding 1 teaspoon to water, juice or a smoothie. Stir/shake and consume, once or twice daily.

Most marvellous especially this year where the winter has gone on for longer than average, the rain still is very evident into June and we are educated into the fact that there is a Vitamin C deficiency in the UK. This is difficult to cure without using synthetic vitamins or adding in extra sugar in juices. This is easy to add to smoothies and some meals although a strong taste that is not sweet may make adding for some palates difficult.

This is a good product, but tastes absolutely foul, there is no way it could be put into a smoothie, without it overpowering the whole drink
