Acerola can be found growing wild and under cultivation on the sandy soils throughout north-eastern Brazil. It is native to northern South America, Central America, and Jamaica, Florida and Texas. The fruit of the Acerola Cherry tree (Malpighia punicifolia L) is rich in Vitamin C and carotenoids, with the cherry-like fruits being one of the richest known natural sources of vitamin C. The fresh fruit can contain up to 4000 mg Vitamin C per gram of fresh weight. Oranges provide 500 to 4,000 parts per million Vitamin C or ascorbic acid, while Acerola assays in the range of 16,000 to 172,000 parts per million.

Dosage: 1g (1/4 tsp) one or two times daily, or as required. Viridian's Acerola powder provides approximately 18% vitamin C. Therefore 1g of powder provides 180mg vitamin C.

Known contraindications: A study published in 2002 reported that acerola evidenced similar allergic reactivity to that of a well-known allergen, latex. Those who may be allergic to latex may also be allergic to acerola in supplement form or to its addition in various fruit juices.

Note: Other constituents include: flavonoid-type antioxidants such as anthocyanins and proanthocyanidins, pectins, tannins, natural sugars, plant acids, red and yellow pigments, especially carotenoids, and essential oil.
