To help promote healthy blood circulation, we recommend Camu-Camu. Circulation is one of the body’s most important functions, as it supplies oxygen to the brain and other organs. Another benefit is that it promotes healthier skin and encourages cell regeneration.

Rio Amazon Camu-Camu capsules contain a bioactive-rich food powder from Myrciaria dubia, a small tree that produces a cherry-sized fruit that contains the most concentrated source of vitamin C of any other known fruit on earth.  As it is a natural product, the amount of vitamin C varies according to harvest conditions etc.  The fruit contains other constituents that work synergistically alongside the ascorbic acid (vitamin C) in the fruit, such as potassium which is suggested to accelerate its intestinal absorption. Camu-Camu has approximately 2g vitamin C per 100g of fruit.  Rio Amazon Camu-Camu capsules contain an 8:1 juice extract so each 500mg capsule contains the equivalent to 4,000mg of Camu-Camu fruit.  This means that each capsule has approximately 80mg of vitamin C, which is delivered alongside other constituents in the fruit, including antioxidants which can benefit in combination with the vitamin C in the Camu-Camu fruit. 

Native to the vast flood basin of the Amazon rainforest, Camu-Camu is a small tree that produces fruit the size of cherries containing the highest concentration of vitamin C of any food. Camu-Camu contains over twice the levels of vitamin C as the Acerola Cherry (a more famous Amazonian fruit) and thirty times the level found in Oranges.

The key advantage from taking a natural Vitamin C supplement such as Camu-Camu is that it is gentle on the stomach, and easier to assimilate in the body than synthesised vitamin C. Rio Amazon Camu-Camu capsules provide an average of around 80mg of Vitamin C per capsule in a highly ‘bio-available’ form.

In addition, Camu-Camu is a source of ‘gentle’ iron, phosphorous, potassium, vitamins B2, B3, beta-carotene and other carotenoids. It also contains amino acids, bio-flavonoids, anthocyanins and other nutrients that help with the absorption of the vitamin C in the body.
