Camu Supreme is a single food that we have known about for a long time but like many of our other products it took a while to find a source that passed our testing methods. This new product is Camu Supreme. Camu is a berry from a bush (Myrciaria dubia) that grows in the Amazon rainforest. What makes camu stand out is that it is the 2nd most concentrated source of vitamin C found in any fruit. It is also a significant source of antioxidants including anthocyanins, d-limonene, and catechin. Dr James Duke in his ethnobotanical database rates camu as being an effective antiviral, very useful for gingivitis and other periodontal disease, asthma, hepatitis, atherosclerosis, infertility, cataracts , migraine and cluster headaches , colds, osteoarthritis,depression, edema and Parkinson's disease. According to Sloan Kettering's' website, Camu decreases inflammatory and oxidative stress markers such as 8-hydroxy-deoxyguaosine, total reactive oxygen species, C reactive protein, IL-6, and IL-8 in smokers.
Besides vitamin C, camu contains natural beta-carotene, calcium, iron, niacin, phosphorus, riboflavin, thiamin and the amino acids valine, leucine and serine. Compared to oranges, camu on a weight for weight basis, supplies thirty times more vitamin C, and ten times as much iron. Some vitamin C content is lost after processing but not enough to make a significant difference. We will not be stating vitamin C content on the label as it can vary depending on many variables (time harvested, soil and climate conditions) but an average dose of 1 scoop will have anywhere in the range of 200mg-1000mg in synergy with all the accompanying components (this is the amount I read stated in various research articles, thus the wide range). It is hard to compare natural vitamin C in the complex of a whole food to isolated ascorbic acid but it appears you need much less when taking it as a whole food source and the exact milligrams is not as relevant as how it works as a complete food.
We decided not to encapsulate it since it is more of a food. A good maintenance dose is one scoop daily but for acute and chronic conditions that need higher amounts of vitamin C, bioflavinoids and antioxidants you can do 2-3 scoops daily. A good way to take it make a smoothie daily that contains some juice, frozen berries, 1 scoop of Thera Supreme and 1 scoop of Camu Supreme . Camu has a pleasant sour taste . If you want something simple you can just put a scoop in juice or yogurt and mix it in or just take it in water.
I test it on all patients and Camu tests positive on over 50% of them. Camu falls into the class of superfoods that can support your health.
