Our Wildcrafted Organic Freeze Dried Ripe Acerola Cherry Powder is an amazing boost to your daily nutritional regimen. We use a freeze drying process that is optimal for preserving its nutrients. A single teaspoon of our organic ripe acerola cherry powder contains 800% of the daily value for Vitamin C, making acerola cherries a fantastic addition to your daily superfood regimen.
Wildcrafted and organic raw ripe acerola cherries are an excellent source of powerful antioxidants, carotenoids and flavonoids. They are a healthy source of protein and mineral salts especially iron, phosphorus, calcium and magnesium. They may also have antifungal activity. Acerola contains vitamin A, which may support healthy eyesight. In addition, the potassium found in this superfood may help balance healthy blood pressure levels, heart function and a positive mood. The folate found in our acerola powder potentially supports healthy cellular growth, as well.
The raw acerola cherry is well known for its exceptional vitamin C content. The content of one cherry is 65 times higher than what is found in an orange, making it equal to the minimum daily requirement. Vitamin C has been shown to possibly support a healthy immune system response and the regeneration of tissue. Acerola cherries may also be useful for preventing abnormal growths and supporting healthy cellular aging.
Researchers have found that the anthocyanins found in ripe acerola cherries are a major factor in their potentially strong health benefits. Anthocyanins may have the ability to support a healthy inflammation response, normal weight, blood pressure, blood sugar metabolism, healthy cholesterol levels, the urinary tract and much more. Scientists continue to research this intriguing fruit.
