Okay guys…..the flu and cold season is definitely upon us. People are coughing in the grocery stores, sneezing at the gym, sniffling at the office, and like it or not…. toddlers are actually wiping boogers on each other. Geez….that has always grossed me out more than anything else. So what are we to do??? Buy my new favorite superfood, Camu Camu Powder.
You are probably thinking, “What the heck is that?” Well, Navitas Naturals Camu Camu Powder comes from the camu berry and is one of the world’s most abundant sources of vitamin C—as much as 60 times more C per serving than an orange. Can you freakin’ believe this? But yes, this antioxidant-rich berry from Amazon is also a plentiful source of potassium, calcium, protein, beta carotene, amino acids and powerful phytochemicals. Just one teaspoon brings in over 1,000% the RDA for Vitamin C. The taste is slightly tart, but kind of yummy. Like a not so sweet “sweet tart.” I like to put a teaspoon in my morning smoothie! Or you can sprinkle it on some yogurt or add it to a cold pressed juice.
As with all super foods, if you are on medication, check with your doctor before taking. :)
