Our story… why we source and supply Camu Camu
Wanting to provide a non-chemical based vitamin C for her family, Cyndi found that Camu Camu is one of the richest sources of nature-based vitamin C available. Our organic Camu Camu is sourced from South America where the berry is harvested by the indigenous people using traditional methods as part of a fair-trade project.
Vitamin C, is well known for its health benefits. It is a regular in many people’s daily diet through eat fruits and vegetable and take vitamin supplements. Here at Changing Habits we like to get as much as we can from food, which was why we added Camu Camu to our range.
This potent berry contains naturally occurring Vitamin C and has a zingy citrus flavour which can be added to smoothies, raw slices, jellies or juice to make it easy to ensure you are getting you this wonderful nutrient.
Vitamin C is well known to help the immune system but is has many other benefits including helping with iron absorption, protecting from free radical damage, bone and cartilage structure, teeth and gums and reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
When we think of vitamin C we often think of oranges, they contain approx. 50mg per 100g, while Camu Camu has approximately 10,000 mg per 100 gm of fruit.
Camu Camu is one of the richest sources of natural vitamin C in the world and has grown abundantly along the Amazon River for centuries. The berry is harvested by the indigenous people using traditional methods as part of a fair-trade project. The locals have always known the benefits of Camu Camu and have used it for generations as a food and medicinally.
Changing Habits worked with locals in order to secure some Camu Camu for our clients. Howard, Changing Habits Managing Director and husband of Cyndi travelled to South America and spent many long hours on buses and other modes of transport, talking with the people who helped this happen.
We supply our camu camu as a powder not only because this makes to more versatile but also the capsules can have dubious ingredient and flow agent may be used.
Our camu camu is 100% natural, no artificial vitamin C is added.
