Amaçari’s Amazon Strong claim is more than just a slogan. The Camu Camu superfruit has demonstrated its superior performance in three different tests:

 

(1) Vitamin C, which functions as a proven antioxidant to neutralize free radicals, contributes to healthy immune function, and is necessary to maintain bone health;

(2) Total Phenolics, which contribute to maintenance of healthy vision and heart, and bolster cellular antioxidant defenses; and

(3) Total ORAC, which is a unit of measurement for antioxidants developed by the National Institute on Aging in the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Along with proving its potency in these 3 tests, Amaçari has also shown effectiveness in protecting cells against oxidation, inflammation, and UV damage.
