The Acerola cherry is well known for its exceptionally high vitamin C content. The vitamin C content of one tiny cherry is 65 times higher than what is found in an orange. In other words, the vitamin C found in one cherry is equal to the minimum daily requirement needed by the body. The vitamin C prevalent in acerola can help boost the immune system, strengthen the liver, improve skin, and improve your body's ability to regenerate tissue. It also may help the body to prevent colds, infections, hair loss, and dental problems. The free radical scavenging benefits of Acerola are also useful for preventing abnormal growths and fighting cellular aging.
