Acerola Cherry thumbup.gif wub.gif

user posted image

Acerola can be found growing wild and under cultivation on the sandy soils throughout north-eastern Brazil. It is native to northern South America, Central America, and Jamaica, Florida and Texas. The fruit of the Acerola Cherry tree, Malpighia punicifolia L. is rich in Vitamin C and carotenoids, with the cherry-like fruits being one of the richest known natural sources of vitamin C. The fresh fruit can contain up to 4000 mg Vitamin C per gram of fresh weight. Oranges provide 500 to 4,000 parts per million Vitamin C or ascorbic acid, while Acerola assays in the range of 16,000 to 172,000 parts per million.
. ANTIOXIDANT - Acerola's use is mostly associated with its high content of vitamin C and the synergistic bioflavonoids- rutin and hesperidin, providing one of nature's most potent antioxidants.
. IMMUNE SUPPORT - Acerola is an ideal food based source of nutrients necessary for immune support. Acerola is a rich source of vitamin C, bioflavonoids, carotenoids, and other vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients providing ideal synergy for immune cell function.
. NUTRITIVE - Compared to oranges, acerola provides twice as much magnesium, pantothenic acid, and potassium. Other vitamins present include vitamin A (4,300 to 12,500 IU/100 g, compared to approximately 11,000 IU for raw carrots), thiamine, riboflavin, and niacin in concentrations comparable to those in other fruits. One hundred and fifty other constituents have been identified in acerola; the major ones being furfural, hexadecanoic acid, and limonene. Acerola cherries are an excellent source of powerful antioxidants and are also rich in protein and mineral salts principally, iron, calcium and phosphorus.
. SKIN TONIC - Recent research in cosmetology indicates that vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant and free radical scavenger for the skin as well, and acerola extracts are now appearing in skin care products that fight cellular aging. In addition to its vitamin content, acerola contains mineral salts that have shown to aid in the re-mineralisation of tired and stressed skin, while the mucilage and proteins have skin hydrating properties and promote capillary conditioning.

Ehehe....what's wrong with existing sources of vit. C? Ever consider overdosage? I'd agree with the antioxidant and nutritive aspects though. Might not be any point paying a premium if you can get the same nutrients otherwise though.
