Acerola Cherries

Acerola Cherries

Acerola cherry extract comes from the acerola cherry, also known as the Barbados cherry. It is a shrub or small tree that is native to the Caribbean, but can also be found in South America, Central America, California, Texas, and Florida. The cherries are bright red and have a tangy flavour. The extract is a rich source of vitamin C and other beneficial compounds, and it's often used in dietary supplements, cosmetics, and food and beverage products for its antioxidant properties. 


  • Acerola cherry is renowned for its exceptionally high vitamin C content, which can assist with immune function, skin health, and iron absorption. 

  • Acerola cherry extract contains potent antioxidants including vitamin C and carotenoids, which may help to combat oxidative stress and inflammation in the body. 

  • Preliminary research suggests that acerola cherry may have beneficial effects on blood sugar regulation and lipid metabolism, making it potentially useful for managing metabolic health.
