Camu Camu (Mycaria Dubia) is a bushy tree that grows in black water rivers especially along abandoned watercourses known as cochas. Each year the river floods bringing nutrients to the soil and avoiding the depletion associated with typical farming methods; these are ecosystems of great social and economic importance to the Amazon jungle in Peru. Growing in these swampy areas it takes years for the tree to become mature enough to bear fruit. The fruit of the tree is approximately 2 centimeters in diameter and has a purplish red skin with a yellow pulp.

Camu Camu is traditionally made into a juice by people of the rainforest to support the immune system ward off viral infections and help maintain optimal health especially under conditions of stress and anxiety which tend to deplete the immune system. It also contains bioflavonoids the amino acids serine valine and leucine plus considerable quantities of thiamine riboflavin and niacin.
