Camu Camu Products

Camu Camu Products

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 is also loaded with powerful anti-oxidants, making it a fabulous addition to a balanced diet. 

The main habitat of the Camu Camu shrub is on the border of Peru and Brazil, where it thrives 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 provided jobs in Peru for the tribal people of the rainforests.

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 Calcium

Forming 2% of total body weight in adults, calcium’s best known role is in bone and tooth health.  It forms a part of hydroxyapatite, the mineral complex that makes your bones and teeth hard and maintains bone density.  It is especially important that children consume an adequate amount of calcium to maximise their bone mass prior to adult years.  Also an important part of the blood clotting process, calcium works together with vitamin K and a protein called fibrinogen in the clotting cascade, without adequate levels of calcium and vitamin K the blood will take longer to clot.  Calcium helps your muscles contract in response to nerve stimulation, it activates a protein called calmodulin that your muscle cells need to provide the fuel they need to function.  Assisting in the transmission of neural impulses, the calcium in your body also aids other types of cell communication – it acts as a “second messenger” in your cells which means it responds to chemical signals from outside your cells and then triggers a response inside your cell. 

Calcium helps to activate several digestive enzymes and there is considerable evidence that calcium and vitamin D intake are influential in modulating energy metabolism in humans.  Like all minerals, calcium doesn’t work alone but in tandem with other nutrients such as magnesium and vitamin D, for this reason, obtaining our calcium from whole foods – foods whose nutrient profiles have been optimised by nature for superior absorption – is the best way to remain healthy!  Excellent natural calcium sources include; chia seeds, sesame seeds, seaweed (such as kelp and Kombu), dark leafy greens and dairy products (such as yoghurt, cheese and kefir).

Calcium contributes to:

·         normal blood clotting

·         normal energy-yielding metabolism

·         normal muscle function

·         normal neurotransmission

·         the normal function of digestive enzymes

·         Calcium has a role in the process of cell division and specialisation

·         Calcium is needed for the maintenance of normal bones

·         Calcium is needed for the maintenance of normal teeth

·         Calcium is needed for normal growth and development of bone in children

Rio Amazon Camu Camu 8:1 Extract 500mg (120 vegicaps).

It also contains amino acids, bio-flavonoids, anthocyanins and other nutrients that help with the absorption of the vitamin C in the body.
