What a honey! This remedy packs punch

IF YOU want to provide a non-chemical-based vitamin C for yourself and your family, then Camu Camu powder is a must-have.

It is one of the richest sources of nature-based vitamin C available and, based on scientific research, is more powerful than isolated, processed ascorbic acid (synthetically made vitamin C).

Camu Camu contains about 460-times more vitamin C than an orange, making it an incredibly immune-boosting natural-food supplement and a perfect addition to these immune-boosting gummies.

Manuka honey is also added for its antibiotic, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties which helps the body to fight infection and prevent the growth of bad bacteria.

It's soothing to the digestive system and also helps remove toxins from the blood, as well as aiding the liver to function more efficiently.

Gelatin is used not only for the setting agent, but also because of its immune-boosting properties, and the fact it aids sleep, is easily digestible, supports skin, nail, hair and teeth health, aids detoxification and so much more.

Vitamin C Immune Boosting Gummies




3.5-4.5 tbsp gelatin


1 cup of filtered water


zest of 1 lemon, orange or lemonade (optional)


1-2 tbsp Manuka honey


¾ cup orange, lemon or lemonade juice


1-1.5 tbsp of Camu Camu powder



1. Mix the gelatin and filtered water together in a small saucepan, set aside for a couple minutes and allow it to thicken and "bloom". (Note: the more gelatin you add, the harder your gummies will turn out).

2. Once the gelatin and water have thickened, add the saucepan to the stovetop and dissolve the gelatin on a low heat.

3. Once the gelatin has completely dissolved, remove it from the heat and allow it to cool for a few minutes. Then stir through all the other ingredients to combine.

4. Pour the mixture into a pouring jug (for ease) and carefully pour the mix into little moulds. Place in the fridge to set. Depending on the size of your moulds, it will make about 50-60 bite-sized gummies.

5. When they have set, remove the gummies from their moulds and place into an airtight container and keep them in the fridge. If you have trouble removing the gummies from the moulds, use a small teaspoon to make it easier (they won't look as pretty, though).
