Camu-camu juice

Camu-camu is a shrub native to the Amazon region of South America. Because of its sour taste it is not generally consumed as food.

Camu-camu berry is reported to be one of the richest known sources of vitamin C in the world, with around 2g of vitamin C per 100g of fruit.

It was found to have powerful anti-oxidative and anti-inflammatory properties, compared to vitamin to C tablets containing equivalent vitamin C content. Camu-camu juice contains certain amino acids that will support the immune system, as well as act as an astringent and antidepressant.

How to prepare camu-camu juice: Cover whole camu-camu with hot water. After 4-5 minutes, squeeze the fruit with hands, strain it discarding the solids, and add sugar and 1 cup water to the juice. Keep refrigerated and serve cold.
