The camu camu extract comes from the fruit of Myrciaria dubia, a bushy riverside plant of the amazon forest especially peru and brazil. Edible fruits produced from this plant are those for which this plant is cultivated. Known for the highest amount of natural Vitamin C, this evergreen plant’s habitat is dry soil and is mostly found in temperate regions. It is also known as the Queen of Citrus Fruits camu camu and contains beta-carotene, calcium, leucine, protein, serine, thiamin, and valine apart from Alpha-pinene and d-limonene.
