Acerola Cherry🍒 is a tropical fruit native to Mexico and Central and South America. Its flavor depends on the variety of the fruit and is described as ranging from sour to semisweet to sweet.
Acerola Cherry is ultra rich in Vitamin C. The recommended daily value (RDV) of vitamin C for women is 75mg and 90mg for men. While you would have to eat 1 cup of oranges to meet the RDV, you can get the same amount from just 3 acerola cherries!
Vitamin C is a required nutrient and water-soluble vitamin and is not stored in the body, so you need to take a source of water-soluble vitamins in daily.
Vitamin C builds collagen, protects mucus membranes, and prevents scurvy. It's important to keep the immune system functioning and help the body fight infections, viruses, and even cancer.
Acerola cherry also contains:
Niacin (vitamin B-3)
Riboflavin (vitamin B-2)
Thiamine (vitamin B-1)
Since these rare to find cherries are extremely perishable and lose their nutritive value in about 5 days after harvesting, the powder form in Café Ever-Greens provides a great solution to that hassle.
