Acerola is the fruit of a shrub native to the Caribbean Sea and the Antilles, the fruit is called West Indian cherry or West Indian cherry because it closely resembles cherry. In the Brazilian and Peruvian Amazon, these fruits have been consumed for several millennia for their nutritional richness .

The acerola fruit is considered a superfruit because it contains 20 to 30 times more vitamin C than oranges ! This makes it one of the fruits richest in vitamin C.

Vitamin C plays an essential role in our body. It increases the absorption of iron (main constituent of hemoglobin), it contributes to the normal formation of collagen (the youth of our cells!) to ensure the normal functioning of blood vessels, bones and our cartilage.

It contributes to the normal functioning of our immune system while helping to reduce fatigue . In addition, the vitamin C contained in acerola is particularly bioavailable , meaning that it is well assimilated by the body.

In addition to being an exceptional natural source of vitamin C, acerola has a very interesting nutritional profile . It is rich in minerals, trace elements (phosphorus and calcium), B group vitamins and contains a significant portion of antioxidants (notably flavonoids and anthocyanins).

We use Acerola in B-Vitality to contribute to the normal functioning of the immune system and help reduce fatigue.
