Description
 

Our Acerola Cherry Powder is packed with real vitamin C and is a great addition to yogurt or smoothie recipes. Acerola Cherry Powder has one of the highest concentrations per gram of natural vitamin C in any fruit; in fact one Acerola cherry has nearly 30 times more vitamin C than a lemon and is a lot more pleasant to eat!

It's the Real Deal

Did you know that by taking vitamin C supplement products, you might be doing yourself more harm than good? Many vitamin supplements contain synthetic vitamin C; most of this synthesized version isn't used by the body and is expelled in urine causing your kidneys and liver to work hard. To truly benefit from vitamin C, you need the complex real vitamin C, not the synthetic version. Real vitamin C is found in natural foods, just like the Acerola cherry.

The Acerola tree grows naturally in the West Indies (it's also known as the Barbados cherry), Central America and northern Latin America. Acerola Juice is as common in Brazil and Suriname as Orange Juice is in the United States. Its bright red fruits are the same size as regular cherries and have a pleasant taste.

Acerola is well known for its high vitamin C content (up to 4.5% vitamin C per fruit compared to 0.05% found in a peeled orange). When compared to oranges, Acerola also provides double the amount of magnesium, potassium and pantothenic acid. It also is a significant source of vitamin A. Acerola's vitamin C content fluctuates according to season, climate and maturity of the fruit. Most commercially grown Acerola is harvested while it is still green because the fruit loses a substantial amount of vitamin C as it ripens. Acerola also has various mineral salts that can help stressed and tired skin to be re-mineralized. The proteins present in Acerola possess skin-hydrating properties and support capillary functioning. Currently more clinical research is being conducted on various properties and applications of Acerola.

Research into the specific health benefits of Acerola Cherry Powder is ongoing, but studies have shown that Vitamin C will:

  • Promote a healthy immune system
  • Help to prevent colds and infections
  • Help to prevent hair loss
  • Protect against dental problems
  • Promote health and vitality and fight chronic fatigue
  • Prevent excessive bleeding and bruising
  • Help protect your skin and organs against premature aging
