Vitamin C is a potent anti-oxidant preventing the premature oxidation (aging) of cells. It has been proven to support a strong immune system and cardiovascular health. Further research shows that vitamin C is involved in maintaining proper levels of serotonin in the brain. Serotonin is a mood-balancing chemical in the brain that is associated with a sense of well-being and happiness.
Vitamin C is just the beginning. In addition to providing 30 times more vitamin C than an orange, Camu Camu also has ten times more iron, three times more niacin, twice as much riboflavin and 50% more phosphorus. Among Camu Camu’s naturally occurring nutrients are many important minerals including calcium, phosphorus, potassium and iron. Benefits include:

Deficiencies may result in nervousness, anxiety, fatigue mood changes and difficulty concentrating Micro-nutrients may add years to your life.
Most people in the modern world are suffering from micro-nutrient deficiencies simply because the commercial food crops are grown in nutrient exhausted soil. This is why the Rainforest is so important. Our Camu Camu trees are grown on the banks of a lagoon in an Amazon flood plain. What this means is that each year during the rainy season the river banks flood and our trees are six feet under water for almost four months. As the water recedes the soil and nutrient matter that has been moved around the Rainforest is re-deposited.
Camu Camu grows in the Richest Soil on Earth
This natural cycle ensures the richest nutrient soil for the Camu Camu plants. From this soil, the camu camu trees are able to pull a natural density of vitamins, minerals and amino acids in the exact ratios necessary for life. This is why the Camu Camu fruit is packed with a rich, balanced profile of unique, vital nutrients not available from any other source.
Harvard Research on Life Extension
One of the most important of these anti-aging micro-nutrients is resveratrol. Harvard researchers found the polyphenol resveratrol may extend life span and protect against cellular damage by increasing the activity of sirtuin enzymes which help control the rate at which organisms age. Other important co-factors include amino acids, which may play a beneficial role as anti-aging agents.
Leucine - an essential amino acid
Increases production of growth hormones
Deficiencies may result in fatigue and irritability
Serine - an essential amino acid
Supports proper functioning of the brain and nervous system.
May benefit memory, sociability and alertness
Free radicals attack healthy cells resulting in premature aging. The anti-oxidant nature of Camu Camu fights these free radicals and protects cells, including fibroblast cells.
Fibroblast cells are necessary to build collagen and elastin essential in keeping skin youthful and vibrant. Additionally, other Camu Camu nutrients such as beta-carotene, riboflavin and niacin assist in optimizing healthy skin, hair and nails.
As an added Bonus;
Limonene, another compound in Camu Camu, has been shown to reduce appetite and aid in weight loss.
