Wildcrafted and organic, raw, ripe, Acerola cherries are an excellent source of powerful antioxidants, carotenoids, and flavonoids.
They are a healthy protein and mineral salts source, especially iron, phosphorus, calcium, and magnesium. They may also have antifungal activity. Acerola contains vitamin A, which may support 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 cell growth, as well.
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. In addition, vitamin C has been shown to 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.
