As a part of our powdered fruits range, here at Indigo Herbs we are have reserved a place of honour for those fruits that contain the most Vitamin C. Acerola Cherries have nearly as much vitamin C. as the fruit Camu Camu (acknowledged as the highest vitamin C. content in the world) and 13 times as much vitamin C. as orange juice. To pass on this amazing product to you Indigo Herbs has within its healthy arsenal the vitamin rich Acerola Cherry Powder.

 

In Brazil Acerola juice is almost the national drink as it is consumed as much as orange juice is in North America. This species is native to Central America, most notably Mexico, although it has now spread as far as Peru in the South and Texas in the North of America, and also the Caribbean. Not only does Acerola Cherry have a high vitamin C. content, but also a great deal of other vitamins which is why the Brazilians not only use Acerola juice as a refreshing drink and as a health tonic. It was in the 1940’s that scientists from Puerto Rico found that the Acerola Cherry was incredibly rich in vitamins. It soon became very popular and some countries wouldn’t allow the trade in the juice. As an ornamental tree the Acerola is used by the Japanese for bonsai training and is also used to decorate the homes of peoples of Latin America.

 

Acerola is an evergreen shrub or small tree with spreading branches on a short trunk. It is usually 2–3 m (6.6–9.8 ft) tall, but sometimes reaches 6 m in height. The trees flower in pretty little pink clusters that eventually turn into fruit. Fruits from the tree mature to a diameter of 0.5 to 1 inch and develop into bright red fruits similar to cherries. The cherries deteriorate rapidly after they’re picked, with unappealing changes noticeable within 4 hours after they're harvested.

Acerola (Barbados cherry) possesses the highest amount of vitamin C for any plant derived fruits/berries, second only to Camu Camu!  Just one serving provides almost the full recommended daily allowance of vitamin C – this important vitamin is a wonderful antioxidant, safely targeting and neutralising free radicals thus protecting the cells from oxidative stress.  Also a powerful immune booster, white blood cells contain 20 times the amount of vitamin C than any other cell type in the body making it vital for a healthy immune system.  Other benefits include its role in collagen production – an essential part of our connective tissues, and its enhancement of the body’s ability to absorb iron.

Our Acerola Cherry Powder is also very high in vitamin A (beta-carotene), this is well known for its role in eye health especially when it is consumed in conjunction with other antioxidant vitamins such as vitamin C - in the body, beta carotene coverts to retinol which produces the pigments in the retina in the eye.  Vitamin A also enhances the body’s immunity against infections by increasing the lymphatic responses against disease forming antigens and by assisting the skin and mucous membranes in repelling bacteria and viruses more effectively.

This highly antioxidant, immune boosting powder is delicious in a smoothie or juice.  You can also experiment by adding it to cakes, flapjacks or pancakes giving your baked goods a supercharged nutritional boost!

Our fruit and vegetable powders are slow-dried to preserve the nutritional content and are 100% natural with nothing added. This makes these powders a perfect choice for using as natural flavourings and colourings.

It’s simple and easy to benefit from the goodness of these superfood fruit and vegetable powders by adding them to smoothies for a superfood boost. However they can be used extensively in food preparation.

Try experimenting with the intense flavours in making raw chocolate, icecream, flapjacks, cakes, breads, biscuits, pancakes to name a few. For full instructions go to our How to use Fruit and Vegetable powders page.

This herbal powder can be re-hydrated in water or fruit juice, it can be encapsulated or added to a herbal powder blend. Please consult the Herbal Materia Medica or Medical Herbalist for this botanical ingredients uses.

Serving:

Add 1-2 tsp to water, fruit juice, Superfood smoothie or vegetable juice.

1 teaspoon equals 4 grams (1 tsp = 4g)

High in Vitamin A

Vitamin A is the name given to a group of fat-soluble antioxidant compounds.  Two different types of vitamin A are found in the diet; “preformed vitamin A” (also referred to as retinol or retinal) is found in animal products and “pro-vitamin A” is found in plant based foods - the most common type being beta-carotene.  It was the first fat soluble vitamin to be recognised and is sometimes referred to as the “anti-infective” vitamin due to its enhancement of the body’s immunity against infections by increasing the lymphatic responses against disease forming antigens.  It keeps the mucous membranes moist that line the mouth, respiratory passage and urinary tract and enhances the activity of white blood cells. 

Known as retinol because it produces the pigments in the retina in the eye, it enables your eyes to adjust to light changes, keeps the eyes moist and improves night vision.  It can also significantly reduce the risk of cataracts and macular degeneration.  Vitamin A helps to keep your body free from free radicals and toxins which might cause damage to your skin, helping to keep it soft and supple by ensuring moisture retention.  Vitamin A deficiency can impair iron metabolism which can lead to anaemia despite adequate iron intake.  Playing an important role in cells’ ability to adapt to perform specific functions in larger organs, the richest sources of preformed vitamin A are found in liver, kidney, butter and whole milk, whereas good sources of pro-vitamin A are dark green leafy vegetables and yellow-orange vegetables such as sweet potatoes and carrots.

Vitamin A contributes to:

·         normal iron metabolism

·         the maintenance of normal mucous membranes

·         the maintenance of normal skin

·         the maintenance of normal vision

·         the normal function of the immune system

·         Vitamin A has a role in the process of cell specialisation

High in Vitamin C

Vitamin C, a water soluble vitamin also known as ascorbic acid, is one of the safest and most effective vitamins whose benefits are many.  It is absolutely vital in collagen production – collagen is a simple protein and an essential part of our connective tissue – the very framework of our body.  All of the components that hold our bodies together such as skin, bones, blood vessels, teeth and gums, tendons and cartilage rely upon collagen.  Vitamin C is directly responsible for influencing collagen synthesis and helps to shield us from the symptoms of collagen deletion – most famously scurvy! 

A powerful antioxidant, vitamin C can protect cells from the damaging effects of free radicals which are harmful by-products of digestion or foreign substances in the atmosphere.  Inside the body it changes form to a negatively charged compound called ascorbate which helps to protect nerve cells and improves psychological function.  It has been known as the antioxidant’s antioxidant because it functions to protect vitamin E from oxidation too, another vitamin that interacts with free radicals to prevent cell damage.  Vitamin C strongly enhances the absorption of iron - when they are consumed and digested together, vitamin C combines with the iron to form a compound that is more easily absorbed.  Crucial to the overall health of the body in its efforts to fight off infections – both bacterial and viral – white blood cells contain 20 times the amount of vitamin C than other cells and require constant replenishment to keep the immune system working to its optimum capacity, especially during and after intense physical exercise.    Whilst highly concentrated in citrus fruits, other rich sources of vitamin C are acerola cherries, leafy green vegetables, red peppers and potatoes.

Vitamin C contributes to:

·         normal collagen formation for the normal function of blood vessels

·         normal collagen formation for the normal function of bones

·         normal collagen formation for the normal function of cartilage

·         normal collagen formation for the normal function of gums

·         normal collagen formation for the normal function of skin

·         normal collagen formation for the normal function of teeth

·         normal energy-yielding metabolism

·         normal functioning of the nervous system

·         normal psychological function

·         the normal function of the immune system

·         maintain the normal function of the immune system during and after intense physical exercise

·         the protection of cells from oxidative stress

·         the reduction of tiredness and fatigue

·         the regeneration of the reduced form of vitamin E

·         Vitamin C increases iron absorption

Manufacture Process

Our Acerola Cherry fruit powder is freeze dried at a low temperature of less than 34 degrees, to allow slow evaporation of almost all of the water, and preserve all the nutritional content. This fruit must be processed when it is picked as it quickly starts to ferment so freeze dried is the best way to preserve the taste and nutritional content. The frozen berries are then milled into a fine powder.

Indigo Herbs - a new convert
The ordering system with Indigo Herbs was simple and the option to pay via Amazon payments was reassuring and made the delivery easier. The items ordered were as viewed and stated on the website and the turn around time was really speedy. I will be using Indigo Herbs again in the future and would not hesitate to recommend them to others.
