Acerola cherry extract powder. Natural whole food highly bio available source of Vitamin C at 26%
The Acerola cherry comes from a small bush like plant and is native to South America, southern Mexico, and Central America, but is now also being grown as far north as Texas and in subtropical areas of Asia, such as India.
The Acerola cherry is similar in appearance to a red cherry, contains over 150 phytonutrients and has high levels of vitamins A, B1, B2 and B3, as well as bioflavins and carotenoids which provide important antioxidant uses. It is also one of the richest sources of vitamin C on the planet and being natural means that it delivers high levels of absorption and stays in the blood for up to 12 hours, far longer than the bio-availability of most industrially processed vitamin C products.
Our Acerola cherry has a tested vitamin C content of 26%. This means that 1 teaspoon or 4 grams is equal to 1040mg of vitamin C.
The Acerola berry is naturally bitter in taste so we recommend this to be taken in smoothies, juice or cordial.
This is a Raw, Non GM product.
