What Is Acerola Plus™
Acerola Plus™ is an enhanced antioxidant formula with
the synergistic protective action of the bioflavonoids
hesperidin and naringin and three important vitamin C
sources, including acerola ( Malpighia glabra L., a naturally
concentrated botanical source of vitamin C), pure ascorbic
acid (water soluble vitamin C) and ascorbyl palmitate (fat
soluble vitamin C).*
Uses For Acerola Plus™
Acerola Plus™ Has Several Physiological Support Properties:
Acerola Plus™ is rich in Vitamin C. The antioxidant
and free radical scavenging power of vitamin C offers a
wide range of support for the human body. It supports the
body’s defense system by enhancing white blood cell
function and increasing interferon levels, antibody
responses, and secretion of thymic hormones. It is
essential for the formation and maintenance of
intercellular ground substance and collagen.
In addition, Vitamin C
aids in the absorption of iron and the formation of red
blood cells and converts folic acid to its active forms. It
has histamine-lowering properties, increases lymphocyte
formation, and is required for the synthesis of carnitine.
Additionally, acerola extract provides a broad spectrum of
other vitamins and minerals allowing for enhanced
nutritional support. Bioflavonoids provide complementary
antioxidant and immune modulating support.*
Source For Acerola Plus™
Acerola Plus™ contains:
pure ascorbic acid, derived from
corn dextrose fermentation;
ascorbyl palmitate, derived
from corn dextrose fermentation and palm oil;
extract sourced from the berries of Malpighia glabra L.,
providing 17% vitamin C;
hesperidin methyl chalcone
(98% pure), obtained from sweet oranges; and
(98% pure), obtained from grapefruit.
