Camu Camu is a round, red to purple colored fruit that grows abundantly in the Amazonian rain forest. Recent research has shown that this fruit contains one of the highest natural vitamin C contents of any food in the world. The fruit is also an extremely rich source of anthocyanins, with a particularly high level of cyanidin-3-glucoside.
Best Camu Camu 4:1 Extract powder is an exclusive wild-crafted, spray-dried concentrate of camu camu fruit. The spray-drying process allows the powder extract to attain four times the nutrient and vitamin C concentration of the whole fruit. Vitamin C and anthocyanin compounds are powerful antioxidants that function as potent free radical scavengers.
Take one or more capsules daily, with or without food.

ive found this vitamin c to deliver benefits beyond any other kind ive tried to date, including lypo-spheric c, the right c, meta-c, ester c, sodium ascorbate, ascorbyl palmitate, and the other more common and more inferior types. i would say meta-c is the most gentle vitamin c, showing no negative side effects at over a gram a day.) i would say i like this one the best, as i believe (unlike meta-c which goes directly to the bloodstream) this form goes to the intestines, where ive read additional benefits accrue as a result of its interaction with food present within the tract. ive also read a wholefood c like this can be 50times more potent than regular vitamin c, and that scurvy cannot be cured using vitamin c supplements, but that it must come through a foodsource like this. i noticed an adrenal improvement with this, as well as an improved volume of blood during exercise taking i cap 6 times a day

I don't eat fruits very often because of the acid in fruits that will cause gum recession. This is a good natural vitamin C that I take everyday :)

For those with a corn/GMO allergy, this is a fantastic product that is bursting with Vitamin C.

This is a must have for me during flu-season, keeps me in health. I was releived to find out that even though there are over a hundred caps in a bottle I didn't have to take like 4 or 6 every day, so it will last the season at least :)

I changed from Navitas Naturals to Doctors Best and I like Navitas better. This leaves a strange after taste in my mouth after taking it. I stopped taking Vit C from abscorbic acid after finding out 99% of it comes from GMO corn and is mfg'd in China. Good price and fast shipping. maybe the after taste thing is just me because this product gets great reviews (the reason I swithched + I wanted a capsule instead of bulk powder for convience). I may call Doctors Best to see if I can return it to them since iherbs policy is NO returns if the product has been opened. Seriously how are you supposed to know something is right for you until you have tried it? Iherb is still great.
