Product Description

Acerola Berry Extract Powder

Organically Grown - USA 

Also Known As - Malpighia glabra 

Origin - Texas, USA Color may vary from tan to medium brown due to time of year harvested.

Overview -  Acerola is well known for it high vitamin C content (up to 4.5% vitamin C per fruit compared to 0.05% found in a peeled orange). When compared to oranges, Acerola also provides double the amount of magnesium, potassium and pantothenic acid. It also is a significant source of vitamin A. Acerola's vitamin C content fluctuates according to season, climate and maturity of the fruit. Most commercially grown Acerola is harvested while it is still green because the fruit loses a substantial amount of vitamin C as it ripens. Acerola also has various mineral salts that can help stressed and tired skin to be remineralized. The proteins present in Acerola possess skin-hydrating properties and support capillary functioning. Currently more clinical research is being conducted on various properties and applications of Acerola.

Medicinal Uses -  Due to the very high content of vitamin C and bioflavonoids, Acerola has commercial uses as a natural preservative, reducing oxidation, which is in fact why it is also used as a nutritional supplement. The average content of vitamin C is around 1.7 g/100 g of pulp, higher than other fruits tested, like pineapple, cashew, guava, kiwi, orange, lemon, and strawberry, but lower than the Camu-Camu fruit of Amazonia. Since this vitamin C is naturally bound and occurs with all of its cofactors, it is also a more gentle and easily assimilated form of vitamin C than synthetic ascorbic acid.

Active Constituents - Ascorbic acid (Vitamin C), Beta Carotene, Potassium, B6, Niacin, Essential Fatty Acids

Does not contain silicon dioxide as a flow agent, thus the color will vary from dark orange to brown. 

Preparations - As a dietary supplement, mix 1 teaspoon (4 grams) with juice, yogurt, smoothie, or infuse into a tea. Some nutritionists recommend as much as 30 grams per day.

Precautions - Not to be used during pregnancy or while breast-feeding.

  1. Was Skeptic 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Apr 2017

    I was really skeptic at first because this wasn't certified organic and stated that it was cultivated in the USA and listed as organically grown. I only ordered 2 ounces because I wanted to compare it with the product I purchased from Mountain Rose Herbs. With the comparison I was astonished to find that the powder I received from Mountain Maus was pure with no additives and is so fresh and the aroma is much stronger than the product received from Mountain Rose Herbs. After reading the label from the product from Mountain Rose Herbs I found out that they add silicon dioxide as a flow agent. I don't know about you, but the reason I am purchasing herbs is to move away from chemicals and additives to herbs that are suppose to be good for you.

    My conclusion - buy your herbs from this shop. They are fresh and the cost is reasonable.
