Cherry Acerola Powder
Cherry acerola powder is an extremely rich and bioavailable source of natural vitamin C. Made from real acerola cherries, this powder is loaded with many vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals. Mix 1-2 tbsp in any beverage, smoothie, or yogurt to experience a mighty boost of nutrients.
How to Enjoy Cherry Acerola Powder
Cherry acerola powder has a delightful tart taste that is delicious with a variety of foods and beverages. Blend the powder with smoothies, juices, and other drinks for a potent source of vitamin C and antioxidants. You can also sprinkle it over yogurt, cereal, oatmeal, and pudding or other desserts.
Health Benefits of Cherry Acerola Powder
Acerola cherries are the richest natural food source of vitamin C. One single acerola cherry contains 65 grams of vitamin C, which meets the U.S. FDA's recommended daily intake (RDI) for this nutrient. Acerola cherries contain up to 40 times as much of this immune-boosting vitamin as oranges. The vitamin C from acerola cherry powder is 1.63 times more bioavailable than that of synthetic sources. This means that your body is much more easily and effectively able to utilize the vitamin C from acerola cherries than it is from commercial supplements.
A daily dose of vitamin C is essential for supporting the immune system, and can even help your body recover from colds and illnesses. When you’re wounded, vitamin C supports the production of collagen so that you heal faster. It also fights free radicals that accumulate in the eyes as a result of sun exposure, to prevent cataracts. As an antioxidant, vitamin C also plays an important role in regulating blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and blood sugar levels. Consuming adequate levels of vitamin C every day is an easy step you can take to reduce the risk for chronic conditions such as heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. Cherry acerola powder is an excellent way to meet, and even surpass, your daily vitamin C needs!
Vitamin C isn’t the only reason to love acerola cherry powder. It’s extremely rich in other vitamins and minerals, too! Acerola cherries are packed with beta-carotene, which converts to vitamin A in the body. Combined with the antioxidant powers of vitamin C, these nutrients will make your immune system feel invincible. Cherry acerola powder is also loaded with B-complex vitamins, to support many of your body’s natural metabolic processes. Minerals like iron, calcium, and potassium will keep you feeling energized and help maintain strong bones.
Origin of Acerola Cherries
Acerola cherries are produced by the tropical shrub Malpighia emarginata and are native to South America, Central America, and Mexico. The fruits are typically harvested when they're still green because that's when they have the highest vitamin C content. In fact, the green cherries contain twice as much vitamin C as they will once they become fully ripe. The ripe cherries are juicy, tart, and bright red in color. Highly perishable, the fresh fruits must be consumed within a few days once they are picked. This makes acerola cherry powder an attractive option for people who want to enjoy this potent vitamin C source but don’t live in areas that grow the fresh fruit. The acerola cherry is also known as the Barbados cherry and West Indian cherry.

“I just got my first order from Nuts.com and I LOVE the packaging. The box made me laugh and I love each item's packaging too. Now for the good stuff. I immediately made my lunch shake (ViSalus) with the wheatgrass, cherry and bee pollen powders. Delicious! They blended perfectly and smelled fresh. This may have been my first purchase, but it won't be my last! And thanks for the gift of the mixed fruit! It's also delish! ”
