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:
