Why Do I Need Vitamin C?

Vitamin C is a water soluble nutrient that acts as an antioxidant in our body. While Vitamin C plays many roles in our body, here are some of the highlights:

  • A Powerful Antioxidant That Can Boost Your Body’s Natural Defenses*
  • Helps Protect Cells from Damage Caused By Free Radicals*
  • Supports Healthy Immune Functions*
  • Needed for the Body to Make Collagen*
  • Increases Absorption of Iron and Nutrients from Foods*
  • Helps Shorten Wound Healing Times*
  • Aides in Strengthening and Repairing Your Skin*
  • Potential Protective Effect on Memory As We Age*

Can’t My Body Just Make Vitamin C?

Unfortunately, if you are human, you just can’t make Vitamin C.

It’s a long story involving evolutionary mutations, but the key point - humans, unlike most animals, no longer have the ability to make their own Vitamin C.

This means we need to get Vitamin C from our diet. In addition, since Vitamin C is a water soluble vitamin, we can not store it in the body. Any Vitamin C we get from our diet is either used by our body or excreted – no storing it up for a rainy day.

Organic Acerola Cherries – Vitamin C and So Much More

When you think about Vitamin C rich foods, oranges are probably the first thing that comes to mind. While oranges are rich in Vitamin C, the tiny but mighty Acerola Cherry has anywhere from 50-125 times the vitamin C of oranges!

In addition to bursting with Vitamin C, the Acerola Cherry is also rich in numerous phytonutrients such as carotenoids and anthocyanins.

To put a cherry on top of this Vitamin C story, Acerola also has a tart but delicious taste which makes it a wonderful way to increase the Vitamin C in your diet.

There Is One Problem With Fresh Acerola Cherries…

They ripen and spoil very quickly after being picked. If you want to consume fresh Acerola Cherries, you only have about 5 days from when they are picked before they begin to spoil.

In addition, as the Acerola ripens, the Vitamin C content decreases.

As most Acerola grows in South America, it makes getting fresh, Vitamin C rich Acerola Cherries in the US very difficult.

So, how can we get unripened, nutrient dense, bursting with Vitamin C Acerola Cherries here in the US…
