Acerola - 6 oz.

NOW Acerola Powder is derived from acerola cherries, one of nature's highest sources of vitamin C.  The fruit can yield up to 4,000 mg of vitamin C per 100 grams of fresh weight, but on the average yields around 1,500 mg.  Our Acerola Powder is a 4:1 extract that yields 180 mg of vitamin C per teaspoon and tastes great!

NOW Acerola is one of the best sources of Vitamin C available in natural form. Just one cherry has 65 times the Vitamin C content of an orange and more than meets the body’s daily requirement for this essential nutrient. Studies have shown that supplementation with Vitamin C can ward off colds and flu, rejuvenate the body’s cells, promote collagen, and prevent the mutation of cells.

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant, protecting against free radicals that destroy healthy cells and cause abnormal production of diseased cells. NOW Acerola Power contains a powerful composition of carotenoids and flavonoids that work to build a strong defense against internal and environmental stressors, things that weaken the body’s ability to remain in balanced and optimal health.

Research has shown that the anthocyanins found in Acerola cherries are beneficial for reducing pain all over the body. NOW Acerola Cherry Powder acts as an anti-inflammatory, reducing swelling, and effective in treating sore throats, fever, constipation, scurvy, and diarrhea.
