Acerola, or acerola cherry (Malpighia glabra), is a fruit native to South and Central America that is also known as Barbados cherry, West Indian cherry, and wild crapemyrtle. Acerola has been part of the food culture of the Amazon region for centuries. These bright red fruits are known for being one of the highest natural sources of vitamin C on the planet. The acerola cherries in Truly Natural™ Vitamin C are sourced from Brazil, where they are grown, harvested, and processed into a concentrated powdered extract (using only water; no chemical solvents).
Food sources of vitamin C are the most bioavailable and compatible to the living matrix of the human body and far superior to isolated vitamin C. Vitamin C never occurs as an isolate in Nature. It occurs as part of an entire complex, which includes other important cofactors that assist the body with proper absorption. Truly Natural™ Vitamin C is 100% food sourced. Trust in Nature’s wisdom! Available in convenient VeganCaps™ as well as powder.
