Acerola Cherry Extract
Vitamin C Powerhouse
Famed for its vitamin C content, the acerola berry also contains free-radical busting anthocyanins and many other valuable phytonutrients. Together, these compounds help fight oxidation both inside and out, keeping your cells and whole body flourishing. Skin cells reap the rewards too, with potential benefits for healthy collagen production and skin tone.
Our Amazonian-sourced, certified organic acerola berries are highly concentrated to 20% vitamin C content to further amplify their incredible health-supportive properties. Our acerola berries are handpicked at the optimum time, when the color reveals their peak vitamin C content. At the processing facility, the berries are stored at temperatures just above freezing to preserve their vital nutrients. This stringent temperature control is maintained throughout the entire standardization process. In a proprietary process, our acerola berries are gently concentrated in a cold-liquid extraction. The syrup is then filtered and dried in a vacuum to protect the fragile, heat- and oxygen-sensitive vitamin C. Our gentle extraction process allows us to create an unusually potent product that retains the whole-fruit matrix of vitamin C and its important cofactors. This is a truly natural ingredient of the highest caliber — 100% organic vitamin C with absolutely no synthetic ascorbic acid.
