By now, you have certainly heard about the power of vitamin C and the benefits it can have on your health. This is a common staple for health enthusiasts, especially during months when the immune system is challenged, such as transition from summer to fall, fall to winter, and winter to spring.
There certainly are many ways you can get vitamin C these days, such as whole food sources, supplementation, and even intravenous injections. Of course, just like any addition to your daily habits, potency and sustainability are paramount. A weak source of vitamin C, or making it inconvenient to get, will not help accelerate your health goals.
But what if you could easily obtain the most concentrated source of whole food vitamin C in the world, and easily add it to your routine on a daily basis, so you can supercharge your health?
Welcome to the promised land of camu camu.
What is camu camu?
Camu camu is a berry grown deep in the heart of the Amazon rainforests of South America, and is so packed with nutrients that is has been called a “powerfruit” with amazing healing capabilities. This is not a label that was leveraged on this humble little berry lightly — in a 100 gram serving, camu camu has been shown to have up to 7.5 grams of vitamin C, an unprecedented 7.5 percent of it’s weight! For comparison purposes, it provides 60 times more vitamin C than an orange on an ounce by ounce basis.
Since vitamin C is considered one of the most powerful antioxidants, and camu camu is considered one of the most powerful whole food sources of vitamin C, you can imagine the free radical scavenging effects of this incredible powerfruit, and how that can positively affect your health!
The health benefits of camu camu
The rich antioxidant value of camu camu, as well as its array of vitamins, amino acids, and trace minerals, is what drives the majority of its health benefits. Here is a short list of the health benefits associated with camu camu:
- Supports the healthy function of the immune system
- Helps support the nervous system
- Helps improve the aging process
- Promotes gum and heart health
- Enhances mood and improves cognitive balance
- Promotes eye health
- Helps promote a healthy reproductive system
- Supports healthy collagen, ligaments, and tendons
- Supports liver health
Sounds amazing, right?
It really is, and most people will feel the impact of this vitamin C powerhouse within minutes of ingestion. This makes it a powerful ally in seasons that make one more prone to sickness and fatigue. You can see an even fuller list of camu camu benefits, here.
As usual, the source of your camu camu is of utmost importance. When you take a pure, potent, and fresh source of camu, you’ll likely know it immediately. That and the synergistic blend of nutrients and high vitamin C (antioxidant) content will put some serious pep in your step, as the nutrients flood your body. This can’t be accomplished from taking ascorbic acid alone (the primary ingredient in most vitamin C products), and the effects will not be near as prevalent.
This is why choosing a truly organic, full spectrum camu camu powder is important, as the synergy will amplify the benefits. Which is why the Health Ranger’s 100% Organic Camu Camu Powder is a ready option.
Take camu camu daily
To use camu camu, simply add 1 tsp of this powder to a glass of water, smoothie, or fruit juice. You may want to add a bit of natural sweetener to enhance the flavor. There are no real contraindications with camu camu, but prolonged use of high amounts may cause digestive distress or diarrhea. Anyone suggested to avoid high amount of vitamin C, like those with kidney stones, should be cautious.
Take time to flood your body with the synergistic nutrients of camu camu on a regular basis, and watch the effects hit you immediately, as they build up over time. It’s a must heading into any season that challenges your immunity and overall health!

In April, 2009, researchers stunned the medical community when they reported chronic inflammation as the root cause of several major diseases.
See, every year 610,000 people in the U.S. die of heart disease. Cancer claims another 584,000...stroke 130,000...Alzheimer's disease nearly 85,000 — and the list goes on.
Truth is, we now know... chronic inflammation is responsible for 7 out of the top 10 leading causes of death in the United States! Hundreds of studies and scientific reviews prove it.
Fortunately, newer research shows you can prevent-even reverse-most major diseases by "turning off" inflammation. And in our new book, we show you how to do just that.
