Tropical fruit rich in easily absorbable vitamin C Camu-camu (Myrciaria dubia) is a native shrub in the swampy regions of the Amazon rainforest, from Colombia through Venezuela and Peru to Brazil. The round fruits bear the same name and are known for their particularly high vitamin C content. The fruits are harvested when they are still green and contain the highest possible vitamin C content.
100% natural vitamin C, in complete vegetable matrix
Camu-camu is the fruit with the highest concentration of vitamin C, an “essential” vitamin because our body cannot produce vitamin C itself. CressanCamu only contains authentic, natural vitamin C from the fruit. This vitamin C is naturally surrounded by flavonoids that increase its absorption and physiological effectiveness. The vegetable matrix is responsible for this. In a vegetable matrix, different components are grouped together in a specific way because they work best in that layout. There are even components that have not yet been identified. An ingenious complexity of nature that we as consumers had better take advantage of!
Bioactive substances as additional antioxidants
Camu-camu is an important antioxidant. This is partly due to the vitamin C content, but also to the presence of phenolic components. Antioxidants fight the formation of free radicals. Imagine it with an apple that you cut in half. The apple turns brown due to the formation of free radicals. If you rub the cut surface with lemon juice, the apple will retain its color. The lemon juice is the antioxidant here. In your body, the antioxidants from CressanCamu serve as free radical scavengers. Antioxidants are very important for smokers. Did you know that one cigarette puff produces 10 million times 1 billion free radicals? One cigarette requires approximately 25 mg of vitamin C from your body.
CressanCamu vitamin C increases your resistance
Due to abrupt changes in temperature and humidity, the respiratory tract can need extra support all year round: from living room to freezing air during the winter, from sultry to fresh after a summer thunderstorm, from an air-conditioned car to the warm outside air. Your throat and airways cannot always absorb these fluctuations well. With regular intake of vitamin C, your natural resistance is strengthened and you will quickly experience more energy.
