Camu camu (Myrciaria dubia), also known as cacari or camocamo, is a bushy riverside tree from Peru and Brazil that grows 3-16 feet high and has a red-purple fruit like a cherry. Long used by native people, camu camu fruit is harvested directly into canoes.

Camu Camu contains the highest documented quantity of natural vitamin C on earth, usually about 5 to 6% naturally-occurring vitamin C. Virtually all vitamin C supplements are chemically synthesized molecules such as ascorbic acid, potassium ascorbate, magnesium ascorbate and calcium ascorbate, and are often made from genetically modified corn sugar. Compared to oranges, camu camu contains 30 times more vitamin C, 3 times more niacin, 10 times more iron, double the amount of riboflavin and 50% more phosphorus. Camu camu also contains beta-carotene, potassium, calcium and amino acids.*
