Traditional Ethnobotanical Information
This wild jungle berry is one of the highest recorded sources of vitamin C (more than oranges or lemons, and higher than acerola fruit). The fruit also contains natural rutin and bioflavonoids. Camu Camu Mega-C contains trace elements such as iron, phosphorus, beta carotene, calcium, vitamin B1, B2, and B3, as well as a comprehensive complex of minerals and amino acids. This species grows wild in abundance in swamps along rivers and lakes in Peru, Amazonian Brazil and Venezuela. During the rainy season, the trunk and lower branches are also submerged for long periods of time.
