Our organic freeze-dried acerola powder is most well-known for being extremely rich in vitamin C. Because of this, it's often used to help with or prevent colds or flu. It's also used as an antioxidant nutrient. Similar to witch hazel, acerola cherry is an astringent (shrinks or constricts body tissues). This could make it helpful for treating skin blemishes, promoting skin elasticity, and aiding digestive issues. It may even have use as an antimicrobial mouth wash.
Acerola cherry is a plant that is native to tropical regions of the Western Hemisphere. It's also commonly called the West Indies cherry, Barbados cherry, or just simply "acerola." It's believed that the shrub-like plant originated in southern Mexico and the Caribbean.
Acerola produces cherry-like berries, but it's not a true cherry. These berries are pleasant-tasting and have been used in modern and folk medicine. Traditional uses include treatment for liver ailments, diarrhea, dysentery, coughs, and colds.
