Cosme-Phytami™ Camu Camu

Add to favourites
Camu Camu is native to the tropical forests of South America and grows in swamps and wetlands, near rivers and Amazonian lakes in Peru, Brazil, Venezuela and even Colombia. It can survive several months with its trunk submerged in water. Camu Camu fruits are traditionally harvested from canoes because they are ripe during the rainy season when the ground is flooded. Camu Camu has been regarded by South American tribes as a symbol of strength and health since time immemorial. The fruits are eaten before a hunt because of their stimulating effects. Before they were recognised as an essential source of Vitamin C, Camu Camu berries were also used as fishing bait. The camu camu, a fruit that is still often misunderstood in the West, is a superfruit thanks to its high vitamin C content.
