Acerola or Acerola Cherry (Malpighia glabra) is a shrub also
known as Barbados cherry, West Indian cherry and wild crape myrtle. A
fruit bearing tree native to Mexico, Central and South America, it often
grows in warm, tropical areas. Traditionally, acerola cherry has been
part of the food culture of native Amazonian for centuries. Cherry-like
fruits can be eaten fresh picked from the trees just as you would do in
the case of other bush berries. However, their extremely tart flavor and
proportionately large sized seeds would limit their use as a favorite
table fruit. These bright-red fruits are known for being one of the
highest natural sources of vitamin C on the planet.
Food sources of vitamin C are the most bioavailable and compatible to
the living matrix of the human body and far superior to isolated
vitamin C. Vitamin C never occurs as an isolate in Nature. It occurs as
part of an entire complex, which includes other important cofactors that
assist the body with proper absorption. Truly Natural Vitamin C is 100%
whole food, corn-free vitamin C.
Acerola cherries are also high in B vitamins, carotenoids,
bioflavonoids, and alkalizing minerals – specifically magnesium,
potassium, iron, zinc, and calcium. Truly Natural™ Vitamin C provides
