Acerola (Malphigia sp.) is a mall, bright red berry resembling a cherry, which is why it is also known as Barbados cherry. It is a powerful natural anti-oxidant, and rich bioavailable source of phytonutrients, vitamins and minerals, including Vit C, Vit A and anthocyanin glycosides.
Researchers believe that Acerola cherries are one of the richest and most bioavailable sources of Vitamin C available, providing around 50–100 times more than oranges or lemons! Eating just about three small acerola fruits per day can satisfy the vitamin C needs of an adult.
Anthocyanin glycosides are flavonoid compounds that give plants their darker colours. In plants they protect cells against oxidative damage and are believed to pass on some of these healthy benefits when introduced to the human diet. They act as anti-oxidants and have also been shown to provide anti inflammatory benefits.
