Ingredient Description

Acerola is native to Central and South America including Mexico, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Peru, and Brazil, and is now widely grown in tropical and subtropical areas. The tree produces bright red drupes which are juicy and very high in vitamin C. Used as a food source, the fruits can be consumed in the same way as cherries. They can be eaten raw or used for jams, candies, cakes, and jellies. A vitamin C dietary supplement is made from the fruits. The high antioxidant property of acerola has led to its use in preventing cancer, boosting immunity, improving metabolism, and anti-aging. It also contains polyphenolic anthocyanidin compounds, including ferulic acid, quercetin, tannins, chlorogenic acid, cyanidin-3-rhamnoside, and pelargonidin-3-rhamnoside, which exhibit strong anti-oxidant activities. Studies have shown its anti-oxidant activities by measuring DPPH activity, reducing power SOA activity, total phenolic content, and total flavonoid content. The crude polyphenol-concentrated extract from acerola exhibited a skin lightening effect by decreasing melanin production. It also showed the skin lightening effects when tested on UVB-induced guinea pig skin.
