For the longest time, oranges have been thought of as the Vitamin C superstars. But now, they’ve got a new contender: the CAMU CAMU BERRY.
1 Camu Camu Berry = 60 Oranges!
- High in Natural Vitamin C
- Potent Anti-oxidant, Anti-inflammation & Anti-viral
- Help to Support a Healthy Immune System
- Relieves Cold Sores
- Natural Remedy for Gout, Helps to Reduce Uric Acid in Your Body
These lime-sized berries hail from the Amazon rainforest, and pack lots of vitamins and nutrients in them. That’s including over 40x more Vitamin C than oranges! Here’s the rundown on just how nutritious 100g of these fruits are, stacked up against your recommended daily values:
2383% of recommended daily Vitamin C values
If you’re an overworked cubicle rat, Vitamin C should be top of your nutrition to-eat list. A German Study showed that Vitamin C reduces stress hormone levels and lessens symptoms of psychological stress.
But our bodies don’t produce this stress-busting vitamin naturally. So here’s one of the richest natural sources of them: camu camu. 100g of the orangish-red berries pack 2145 milligrams of Vitamin C.
For comparison, 100g of oranges contain just 53g! Plus, eating more vitamin C’s been linked to lesser wrinkles and overall better skin.
91% of recommended daily Manganese values
The naturally occurring mineral we call manganese is great at managing the amount of sugar in our blood. It helps normalise insulin production and discharge, which then regulates our blood sugar levels.
So if you’re diabetic, or just a healthy foodie looking to control your blood sugar levels, it’s wise to load up on manganese.
22% of recommended daily copper values
0.2 milligrams of copper don’t sound like much, but a little everyday helps reduce your rate of bone loss. That means better bone health and a smaller risk of developing osteoporosis. And that’s great news for ladies who don’t want brittle bones or fractures!
4% of recommended daily zinc values
Camu camu isn’t just the Vitamin C superstar. It’s got cancer-preventing qualities too! And that comes in the form of zinc, the essential micronutrient for health.
Texan Research has shown that zinc helps prevent esophageal cancer by blocking certain calcium channels in the cancer cells. This then stops the bad guys from spreading throughout your body.
3% of recommended daily iron values
If your default office mode is ‘fatigued’, ‘tired’, and ‘in need of sleep’, it’s time to load up on the iron. This mineral helps our bodies produce healthy red blood cells, which transport oxygen throughout the body and keep us energised.
3% of recommended daily magnesium values
Maybe work-life stress has brought an onslaught of migraines onto you. Well, that’s where getting a healthy dose of magnesium every day can help, because it’s been linked to a lower risk of migraines.
Rather than throwing money on supplements, a 2014 study suggested it might be best to increase the amount of magnesium in your diet instead. So load up on the magnesium-containing camu camu!
