Acerola (Barbados cherry) possesses the highest amount of vitamin C for any plant derived fruits/berries, second only to Camu Camu! Just one serving provides almost the full recommended daily allowance of vitamin C – this important vitamin is a wonderful antioxidant, safely targeting and neutralising free radicals thus protecting the cells from oxidative stress. Also apowerful immune booster, white blood cells contain 20 times the amount of vitamin C than any other cell type in the body making it vital for a healthy immune system. Other benefits include its role in collagen production – an essential part of our connective tissues, and its enhancement of the body’s ability to absorb iron.
Our Acerola Cherry Powder is also very high in vitamin A (beta-carotene), this is well known for its role in eye health especially when it is consumed in conjunction with other antioxidant vitamins such as vitamin C - in the body, beta carotene coverts to retinol which produces the pigments in the retina in the eye. Vitamin A also enhances the body’s immunity against infections by increasing the lymphatic responses against disease forming antigens and by assisting the skin and mucous membranes in repelling bacteria and viruses more effectively.
This highly antioxidant, immune boosting powder is delicious in a smoothie or juice. You can also experiment by adding it to cakes, flapjacks or pancakes giving your baked goods a supercharged nutritional boost!
