In the book Superfoods: The Food and Medicine of the Future he claims it works on all kinds of stuff so.. we shall see..
2 oz is not very much but then again its not like you can go to your local supermarket to pick it up so keep that in mind.
over 400% of daily value of vitamin C in 1 teaspoon so.. if you want vitamin C to the max this is it.
Camu-camu is a low-growing shrub found in the Amazonian rainforest of Peru, mainly in swampy or flooded areas. It grows to a height of about 2-3 m and has large, feathery leaves. The camu-camu fruit is about the size of a large grape and has a purplish red skin with a yellow pulp.
The fruit has never been documented as a traditional herbal remedy for any condition in the Amazon region. In fact, it was not widely eaten as a fruit by the indigenous people, due to its sour, acidic taste. In recent years, the fruits have become popular in Iquitos, Peru, where they are made into drinks and ice creams.
Camu-camu fruit contain powerful phytochemicals, are full of amino acids (serine, valine, and leucine), and have more vitamin C than any other known fruit in the world. Oranges provide 500-4,000 ppm vitamin C; camu-camu provides up to 500,000 ppm, or about 2 grams of vitamin C per 100 grams of fruit. In comparison to oranges, camu-camu provides thirty times more vitamin C. Camu-camu is also a significant source of potassium, providing 711 mg per kg of fruit.Read more ›
I am a researcher and scientist and after testing the behavior of this product on my body and compared it to that of some other competitor camu camus, I conducted a very simple experiment utilizing this camu camu powder and compared it to a mix of two other camu camu powders (organic, raw)
I have taken four cups and added a comparable amount of terr amazon camu camu without stirring to the right 2 cups, while using a mix of 2 competitor organic raw camu camu on the left two cups.
Note: Water temperature was kept constant and a similar amount of stirring was done after a period of time
Note the immediate oddity in viscosity and buoyant behavior in the TerrAmazon pink product when compared to the mix of the two other (both similar color raw, organic) camu camu powders.
This product is processed in some way that likely has altered the behavior of the camu camu. It has drastically different solubility, viscosity, and density when compared to organic certified raw powders by two other companies, which could be suggestive of some kind of tampering. It is possible that maltodextrin or some kind of starch, along with an artificial antioxidant or spraying procedure is at play here.
DO NOT PURCHASE THIS.
The color looks like a soft dim pinkish color. The flavor is like a tangy lemony flavor. I added it to my morning smoothie.
Overall I'm happy with the product this far.
