Organic Acerola Vitamin C – 60 vegetarian capsules
- Organically grown Non-GMO Acerola cherry from Brazil.
- Obtained from matured fruits (red in color).
- Natural extract providing the highest concentration (25%) of natural vitamin C.
Acerola (Malpighia glabra L.) is one of the richest natural sources of vitamin C. The matured fruit contains 50–100 times more vitamin C than orange or lemon.
Vitamin C is known for its antioxidant capacity. However, Acerola provides additional phytonutrients like carotenoids phenolics, anthocyanins, and flavonoids with interesting bio-functional properties like skin whitening effect, anti-aging, and multidrug resistant reversal activity 1.
Acerola is also rich (32%) in Malic acid. Associated with magnesium it has shown promising results in reducing the symptoms of fibromyalgia. There is evidence that Malic acid in Acerola may raise energy levels and improve iron absorption.
All of the above make Organic Acerola Vitamin C a true super food.
