Action:

Acerola’s health benefits are mostly due to its richness in vitamin C. The vitamin C level of acerola is 30 times greater than in an orange. Vitamin C is an extremely important vitamin for our body and as it is not stored by our body, therefor food rich in vitamin C should be consumed daily. 

The cherry is also a significant source of vitamin A. Along with vitamin C, vitamin A is a powerful antioxidant, helping prevent free radical damage. Vitamin C plays also a role in building collagen, supporting our immune system, fighting viruses, and protecting our skin from UV rays. While more research is needed, a recent study is even testing vitamin C benefits in fighting colorectal cancer. 

History: 

The health properties of acerola cherries are not a recent discovery. The Amazonians were the first to notice the benefits of this superfood on their bodies, at the time it would be consumed as a medicine. It was then used by the Spanish conquistadors while navigating to prevent diseases-related to a lack of vitamin C.
