This revered Amazonian fruit has only recently become famous throughout the world because of its very high vitamin C content. It is in fact thought to have the largest Vitamin C content in the world in natural form. Here at Indigo Herbs we have some of the best quality Camu Camu on the market in the form of Camu Camu Extract Powder. This Amazonian fruit provides a natural source of anti-oxidants to be added to the daily diet.

The main habitat of the Mycaria dubia shrub is on the border of Peru and Brazil thriving in the swampy flood plains of the rainforest. Because this shrub grows over rivers and water ways it is an ideal fruit for fish. It is thought that the origins of the Camu Camu come from the onomatopoeic sound a fish makes when it plucks one of these fruits from the surface of the water or from a low hanging branch. The fish are also thought to be responsible for dispersing the plant throughout the rainforest through their favouring of the fruit. It wasn't until 1957 when the Ministry of Public Health in Peru conducted their first nutritional survey of Amazonian fruits that it was discovered that Camu Camu had an enormous vitamin C content. It is thought that the indigenous peoples of the rainforest disregarded the Camu Camu fruit because of its sour and acidic taste. Therefore there is no history or tribal remedies regarding this fantastic fruit.

Growing to 2-3 metres in height, this large shrub has long feather like leaves and produces fruit of green, yellow and purple colour. The fruit is harvested via canoe since the Camu Camu fruit matures during the Amazon flooding season. It’s a hard job since a lot of the fruit falls from the trees and then is submerged under water. Camu Camu now plays an important part in the economy of the region because of its demand in other countries. This has made many jobs in Peru for the tribal people of the rainforests.

Using Herbal and Superfood powders on a daily basis is simple, easy and can be really delicious. The simplest way is to rehydrate the powder in a little filtered water to make a shot, this can easily be prepared once, twice or three times per day if you are taking the herbs therapeutically. However sometimes the herbs can be bitter so the botanical powders can be added to a superfood smoothie instead of just water. The smoothie can be made with a base of nut milk, seed milk or non-dairy milk such as rice milk. Alternatively the main body of the smoothie can be created with fruit or vegetable juices. 

Additional superfood and herb powders can be added to fortify the smoothie with extra beneficial properties. The powders are largely dissolvable and can be scooped in and then blended, shaken or stirred until fully mixed with the liquid. Any true Superfood smoothie disciple would advise that the list of possibilities is endless with the goal to feel great and potentially replace a meal with this glass of super goodness. For full instructions go to our How to take Herbal Powders page.

This Superfruit Powder can be re-hydrated in water or fruit juice, it can be encapsulated, added to a breakfast smoothie or a Superfood Powder Blend.

Vitamin C

High in Vitamin C

Vitamin C, a water soluble vitamin also known as ascorbic acid, is one of the safest and most effective vitamins whose benefits are many.  It is absolutely vital in collagen production – collagen is a simple protein and an essential part of our connective tissue – the very framework of our body.  All of the components that hold our bodies together such as skin, bones, blood vessels, teeth and gums, tendons and cartilage rely upon collagen.  Vitamin C is directly responsible for influencing collagen synthesis and helps to shield us from the symptoms of collagen deletion – most famously scurvy! 

A powerful antioxidant, vitamin C can protect cells from the damaging effects of free radicals which are harmful by-products of digestion or foreign substances in the atmosphere.  Inside the body it changes form to a negatively charged compound called ascorbate which helps to protect nerve cells and improves psychological function.  It has been known as the antioxidant’s antioxidant because it functions to protect vitamin E from oxidation too, another vitamin that interacts with free radicals to prevent cell damage.  Vitamin C strongly enhances the absorption of iron - when they are consumed and digested together, vitamin C combines with the iron to form a compound that is more easily absorbed.  Crucial to the overall health of the body in its efforts to fight off infections – both bacterial and viral – white blood cells contain 20 times the amount of vitamin C than other cells and require constant replenishment to keep the immune system working to its optimum capacity, especially during and after intense physical exercise.    Whilst highly concentrated in citrus fruits, other rich sources of vitamin C are acerola cherries, leafy green vegetables, red peppers and potatoes.

Vitamin C contributes to:

·         normal collagen formation for the normal function of blood vessels

·         normal collagen formation for the normal function of bones

·         normal collagen formation for the normal function of cartilage

·         normal collagen formation for the normal function of gums

·         normal collagen formation for the normal function of skin

·         normal collagen formation for the normal function of teeth

·         normal energy-yielding metabolism

·         normal functioning of the nervous system

·         normal psychological function

·         the normal function of the immune system

·         maintain the normal function of the immune system during and after intense physical exercise

·         the protection of cells from oxidative stress

·         the reduction of tiredness and fatigue

·         the regeneration of the reduced form of vitamin E

·         Vitamin C increases iron absorption

High in Manganese

Derived from the Greek word for magic, manganese is a trace mineral that is present in tiny amounts in the body and is found mostly in the bones, liver, kidneys and pancreas.  It is essential for the proper and normal growth of the human bone structure and is a very effective mineral in aiding in the increase of the mineral density of spinal bone.  Manganese is also needed in the production and repair of connective tissue, its specific role is in the manufacture of mucopolysaccharides which are one of the main components of all connective tissues.  

Regulation of the body’s metabolism is another vital function of manganese with manganese activated enzymes helping in the metabolism of cholesterol, amino acids and carbohydrates.  Also a powerful contributor to the protection of cells from oxidative stress, manganese is a component of the antioxidant enzyme superoxide dismutase (SOD) which helps to fight free radicals.  Free radicals occur naturally in the body but can damage cell membranes and DNA, antioxidants such as SOD can help to neutralise free radicals.  Rich sources of manganese include; whole grains, nuts and nut butters and leafy vegetables.

Manganese contributes to:

·         normal energy-yielding metabolism

·         the maintenance of normal bones

·         the normal formation of connective tissue

·         the protection of cells from oxidative stress

Source of Copper

An essential trace mineral in the body, copper has long been known to play a role in human health – its use dates back to 400 BC when Hippocrates is said to have employed it as a treatment for a variety of disorders.  Playing a beneficial role in immune function, you need copper for healthy white blood cells – the cell type tasked with seeking out, identifying and destroying pathogens.  Low copper levels lower your white blood count leaving you vulnerable to infection. 

Copper is a vital element of the dark pigment melanin which imparts colouration to the hair and skin, intake of copper is said to protect greying hair.  Copper helps in the absorption of iron from the intestinal tract and releases it from its primary storage sites like the liver.  Also playing a significant role in the synthesis of haemoglobin, myelin and collagen, copper helps to protect the myelin sheath surrounding the nerves and is actively involved in the production of an element of connective tissue, elastin.  Functioning as a coenzyme for energy metabolism from the macronutrients in food we consume, copper enables a normal metabolic process in association with amino acids and vitamins.  Oxidative stress is a characteristic of copper deficiency, when obtained from dietary sources it acts as an antioxidant, getting rid of free radicals which can damage your cells and DNA.  For your body to use copper you need to have a balance of zinc and manganese which is why it is best to obtain your copper from dietary sources where it is already in bioavailable form.  Topping the chart as the best source of copper are oysters!  Closely followed by kale, shitake mushrooms, seeds, nuts and nut butters.

Copper Contributes to:

·         the maintenance of normal connective tissues

·         normal energy-yielding metabolism

·         the normal functioning of the nervous system

·         normal hair pigmentation

·         normal iron transport in the body

·         normal skin pigmentation

·         the normal function of the immune system

·         the protection of cells from oxidative stress

Manufacture Process

After harvest the Camu Camu fruit is transported to a production facility where it is washed and inspected by hand. Because of the sticky nature and low water absorbance of dried Camu Camu, the extracted juice has to be spray dried within special canisters with Maltodextrin to make sure that it disolves in water efficiently. The process results in a powder that is powerfully concentrated in Vitamin C and easier to use. Indigo Herbs Camu Camu comes from the best supplier of the fruit in Peru. This supplier understands the need to place the fruit into cool environments in the period between harvest and processing, the importance of not over heating the fruit and only using the most comprehensively advanced dehydration technology know in the field. The result is a Camu Camu powder that is extremely high in the natural form of Vitamin C. which surpasses the ascorbic acid vitamin C that is used in today's tablets. Please note that this Camu Camu Extract contains 10% Maltodextrin which is used as a carrier.

I have been rubbing the powder on my dog to deter flees and postpone the inevitable last resort of the monthly chemical squeeze. I shall also be mixing it into the soil around plants for diseases and hopefully cure Box blight.
