Camu Camu grows in the Amazon Rainforest in the Republic of Peru. Research shows this fruit contains more vitamin C than any other. Camu Camu Provides 2,800mg of Vitamin C per 100g-approximately twice that of acerola, 3 times more than the same quantity of rose hips, 40 times that of kiwi, 56 times more than lemon, and 300% more than the same amount (100g) of blueberries. You can see why Camu Camu is nicknamed the miracle fruit.
