Rio Amazon Camu Camu Capsules contain an 8:1 juice extract. One capsule is equivalent to 4,000mg of Camu Camu fruit. Native to the vast flood basin of the Amazon rainforest, Camu-Camu is a small tree that produces fruit the size of cherries containing the highest concentration of vitamin C of any food. The key advantage from taking a natural vitamin C supplement such as Rio Amazon Camu Camu is that it is gentle on the stomach, and easier to assimilate in the body than synthesised vitamin C.
