This recipe is all about jungle magic. Let me introduce you to Camu Camu; one of the most potent sources of vitamin C of planet earth. Not only does vitamin C help us fight colds, but also works as a mood enhancer. Camu Camu also contains a high level of antioxidants and polyphenols. Polyphenols are micronutrients that we get through some plant-based foods. Polyphenols can improve or help treat digestion issues, weight management difficulties, diabetes, neurodegenerative disease, and cardiovascular diseases.
Camu Camu is a berry that grows in the exuberant jungle of Peru. Plant-based foods provide us with vitamins and nutrients characteristic from the land they grow in. Coming from the jungle of Peru, Camu Camu is rich in phytonutrients. It certainly does not lack colour or power! Are you ready to have a treat?
