Many years ago the co-founder of Rio Amazon travelled to Brazil and was inspired by the wonderful Herbs which grew abundantly in every corner of the Amazon rainforest. This rainforest stretches over a billion acres in Brazil, Venezuela, Columbia, and the Eastern Andean area of Ecuador and Peru. It is home to more than half of the world's plant species. The competitive nature of the rainforest environment has led to Amazonian plants evolving unique chemical compounds for their own survival.
The Rio Amazon range (below) provides you with a unique selection of these natural hidden gems, which include high quality botanical extracts and Superfoods that are free from unnecessary additives & fillers. The raw herbs and extracts used in each and every Rio Amazon product are the same homegrown, hand-plucked variety the people of South America have been harvesting for centuries!
