- Development and maintenance of bones, cartilage, teeth and gums

Why Natural Traditions Camu Camu Berry?
Natural Traditions offers the highest quality, purest Camu Camu available in the most concentrated form. 30 pounds of fresh wild crafted Camu Camu berries makes one pound of finished Camu Camu powder. One teaspoon of the concentrated powder provides approximately 12 times the RDI of Vitamin C or 720mg of whole food Vitamin C, while one capsule provides 75-100mg of whole food Vitamin C. A cold drying process is used so as not to degrade the delicate antioxidants found in the berry and there are no fillers or sweeteners added.
Camu Camu berry powder tends to have a sour taste so is often taken mixed into smoothies. The staff at Better Living in Toronto are trained to help you make the right choice for all your supplement needs including determining if Natural Traditions Camu C is right for you.
