The Acerola cherry plant is a small shrub indigenous to the West Indies. The flowers of the Acerola are generally pink or white, while the fruit itself is a loud red color. Acerola is similar to cherries in size, shape and color. Acerola fruit is said to be soft and sweet when ripe.
Acerola contains high concentrations of vitamin C. Thiamine, riboflavin and vitamin A are also found in Acerola, although not in the same concentration as vitamin C. Acerola is one of the richest natural sources of vitamin C and, as such, is often used medicinally. Acerola has also been found to contain antioxidants, which lend additional health benefits
Acerola is used in the treatment of many conditions ranging from diarrhea to heart disease. While vitamin C is known to have many health benefits, it is perhaps best known for its ability to fortify the immune system. For this reason, Acerola supplements may help those suffering from weakened or compromised immune systems.
Acerola supplements are often used to promote general wellness, and as such are relatively easy to find. In addition to being accessible, these supplements are also available in a variety of forms. Acerola can be found in chewable tablets, capsules, powder and even wafers.
