Acerola is an exotic fruit resembling cherries found in the tropical areas of the Americas and the Caribbean region. Apart from its Vitamin C content, Acerola also abounds with a broad range of anthocyanins, which are powerful free radical scavengers. Now Acerola Powder is a 4:1 extract with high potency Vitamin C that tastes great!

Acerola is the best source of Vitamin C and this was the purest product I found that didn't have a lot of other fillers. I did a lot of research on lowering cholesterol and found out that humans are the only animals that don't produce vitamin C in our bodies. Cholesterol is a natural function of the body to heal cracks in arteries and veins. Vitamin C is beneficial in many ways and one is that it heals the cracks so the body doesn't have to use cholesterol. My cholesterol went down 70 points after I started using this. I put a little bit in a cup of water with each meal and sip through a straw. Very little taste, it's just that with anything I drink but water I use a straw to lessen contact with tooth enamel. It can cause diahrrhea after a meal if you use too much -- just cut down if it happens. It doesn't happen if you use probiotics, which I do.
Looks like mud with some glitter particles and it's impossible to mix in (shaking leaves clumps). Also the caps don't fit tightly - apparently this manufacturer doesn't care much to preserve the product quality after taking your money on it. Health supplements are definitely not their thing, but their stuff pops up everywhere like spam and unfortunately their best ratings are on top by default. Probably most people don't care that much about quality but I for one would opt them out from my product searches if I could!

I have ordered this one hoping that it might be possible to replace AMWAY acerola cherry powder. The taste is very wierd. Maybe it is real taste without artificial flavor.
very poor product

Excellent product and best way to get vitamine C. I put every day 1/2 tablespoon in my smoothie.

I chose this product because it's a whole food, versus the absorbic acid. For my family though, it causes a weird skin itching sensation not long after consumption. That's only with a 4th teaspoon. Otherwise, this product seems fine. Update: I bought this again recently, to switch off from just using ascorbic acid, don't know what change but there is no skin itching sensation this time around.
