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.
An excellent product, economical and effective. I prefer to get my supplements as food based, and find this to work well for me. I also dislike the tart taste of ascorbic acid, and find this to slightly fruity and very palatable.

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.
