Sprinkle it on or mix it into just about anything
Dr. Sal’s Thoughts:
Camu berries are mostly commonly found in a powder form. It is an orangish powder that has a tart berry flavor. If you are a big believer in Vitamin C supplementation to stave off colds then why not add some camu powder to your favorite smoothie. This natural, whole food form of vitamin C is more easily digested and utilized by the body over man-made pills and isolated forms of these nutrients. That is great point to remember next time you’re standing in front of the Walgreens or CVS looking for some vitamin C.
