Does Camu-Camu Have Adverse Effects?

Camu Camu fruit contains high levels of vitamin C, which is a positive thing most of the time.

 Even though it’s rare, vitamin C overdose could result in some annoying symptoms such as:

  • Diarrhea
  • Cramps
  • Headaches
  • Nausea 
  • Sleeping problems

“Taking more than the upper limit for vitamin C isn’t life-threatening” -Healthline *

If you consume the suggested dose of Camu-Camu supplements, these side effects shouldn’t be worrying you.

You should take 4-5 gr -1 tsp – (4000 – 5000mg) powder daily mixing in your smoothie or water.
