Afiabora has decided to create a totally natural product to make the most of amazing qualities of the ingredients that compose it.
But does everyone actually know what they're taking? Below is a brief explanation to learn about the natural ingredients of our supplement
The Camu-Camu (Myrciaria dubia) is a shrub native to the Peruvian Amazon, which grows wild on alluvial soils. It is found mainly along the Ucayali, Amazon River and their tributaries.
Native peoples usually consume it, its fruits are citrusy and sour and absolutely edible. Like all plants that grow wild, its innate naturalness is beneficial for human health.
The high presence of vitamin C makes this fruit a trusted friend for the winter, to be taken as a preventative and very useful in case of flu, sore throat, cold or seasonal ailments.
Acerola, on the other hand, is the vulgar name of Malpighia emarginata, a tropical shrub plant native to Central America also known as manzanita, semeruco, or Barbados cherry.
The fruit of this plant has a diameter of 1–2 cm and, although it looks a lot like the European cherry, inside it has segments, like mandarin. Acerola is juicy and soft. Without the addition of sugar, the taste is sour due to the high content of vitamin C, a value between twenty and thirty times higher than in an orange. The fruits of Acerola are also very rich in bioflavonoids (vitamin C2) which have a synergistic action with vitamin C. The fruit also has a high antioxidant power that allows cells to stay healthy longer, counteracting tissue aging.
