Acerola Description from Now
NOW Acerola Powder is derived from acerola cherries, one of nature's highest sources of vitamin C. The fruit can yield up to 4,000 mg of vitamin C per 100 grams of fresh weight, but on the average yields around 1,500 mg. Our Acerola Powder is a 4:1 extract that yields 180 mg of vitamin C per teaspoon and tastes great! From the FDA's website: "Some scientific evidence suggests that consumption of antioxidant vitamins may reduce the risk of certain forms of cancer. However, FDA has determined that this evidence is limited and not conclusive."
