GLOSSARY
ACEROLA

Acerola

 

How does it work?

Acerola is a cherry fruit tree native to the West Indies used for its nutritional content, particularly vitamin C.1 It contains 1000-4500mg/100g of vitamin C in the edible portion of the fruit making it an excellent natural source compared to other fruits such as the orange (50mg/100g).2 Acerola also contains substantial amounts of vitamin A, B1, B2, B3, calcium, iron and bioflavonoids.3 Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant and immune booster, used to prevent and treat upper respiratory tract infections and improve cardiovascular disease.4 Traditionally, acerola was used to treat scuvy, a fatal disease caused by vitamin C deficiency, and more recently has been used to assist in preventing cardiovascular diseases such as atherosclerosis.5

What results can be expected?

Acerola is an excellent natural source of vitamin C and other synergistic nutrients such as B vitamins, vitamin A and some minerals.6 It may assist in boosting the immune system and provide antioxidant activity to those exposed to cellular free radical damage.7 For those preferring natural sources of nutrients, particularly vitamins C and A, acerola is a good option.8
