Acerola cherry is a juicy, bright, red superfruit that boasts Vitamin C, antioxidants and fiber. It is considered one of the richest natural sources of ascorbic acid, containing up to 100 times more than that of an orange or lemon! In fact, this little cherry-like fruit is so high in Vitamin C it was traditionally used to prevent scurvy. Although the days of worrying about scurvy are long gone, Vitamin C continues to remain an essential nutrient in our diets that should be consumed daily for optimal health.

The Importance of Vitamin C
Vitamin C is essential to the health and regular functioning of the human body, it is one of the safest and most effective nutrients necessary for the growth and repair of all tissues in the body. It helps the body produce collagen and form muscle, tendons, ligaments and blood vessels in addition to many other vital functions. Research from University of Michigan suggests “higher levels of Vitamin C may be the ideal nutrition marker for overall health” and the more we study Vitamin C, the more it reveals how diverse and effective it is at protecting our health in a variety of ways. Unfortunately, getting a sufficient amount of Vitamin C strictly from your diet alone can be tough, that’s why we recommended supplementation and snacking on our new Vitamin C Snack Healthy Packs, to ensure you get the appropriate amount of nutrients you need to power you through the day.
The Amazing Benefits of Acerola
One study showed that acerola outperformed a wide array of Vitamin C containing fruits, including oranges! Research has also confirmed acerola is a highly effective supplement to help boost immunity and for both acute care and prevention of the common cold and flu. For all of these reasons and more, we chose to use this powerful ingredient in our Vitamin C Snack Healthy Packs.
Acerola is powerful and nutrient dense, helping to create more balance in that body. It comes as no surprise why it’s deemed a “superfruit” and with that being said, it was a no brainer for us to choose this ingredient in our Lemon Vitamin C Snack Healthy Packs!
