SKU: 20400
  • A high density source of vitamin C
  • Good source of iron, B2, B3 and beta carotene
  • Well absorbed and gentle on the stomach

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 100mg 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.


2 capsules per day before food, or as recommended by your practitioner. The maximum recommended daily dosage (10 capsules) contains 5g Camu-Camu 8:1 extract - equivalent to 40g Camu-Camu fruit powder.


Camu-Camu (Myrciaria dubia) 8:1 extract, maltodextrin (a complex carbohydrate, from corn). Capsule shell: vegetable cellulose. Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
