    ACEROLA DESCRIPTION

    RICH SOURCE OF VITAMIN C

    Acerola is of the Malpighia glabra or Malpighia emarginata species in the family Malpighiaceae. Common names include Antilles Cherry, Barbados Cherry, Cereso, West Indian Cherry, Cereza, Cerezo, Escobillo, Health Tree, Huesito, Semeruco, Cerisier, Florida Sweet, Puerto Rican Cherry, Wild Crepemyrtle and Manoa Sweet. Other species include Malpighia biflora, M. fallax, M. lucida, M. neumanniana, M. nitida, M. peruviana, M. punicifolia, M. semeruco, M. undulata, and M. uniflora.

    Acerola is native to South America, Southern Mexico and Central America, but is now also being grown as far north as Texas and in subtropical areas of Asia, like India. Acerola is most often cultivated as an ornamental shrub. It has fleshy red fruit about the size of a cherry. It is one of the richest natural sources of vitamin C, almost as much as Camu Camu. This is very important for our bodies do not have the ability to make vitamin C on their own. For the sake of comparison, 100 grams of ripe Acerola fruit contains 17,000 milligrams of vitamin C, whereas 100 grams of oranges contains only 50 milligrams. This fruit is also high in carotenoids, magnesium, niacin, pantothenic acid, potassium, vitamin B-1 (thiamine), and vitamin B-2 (riboflavin) and bioflavonoids to provide antioxidant protection and help for infections and a host of other ailments. It also contains vitamins A and B-3 (niacin). These nutrients provide important nutritive value and have antioxidant uses. The vitamin C produced by the fruit is better absorbed by humans than synthetic ascorbic acid. Vitamin C is a natural detoxifier, antioxidant (as an antioxidant it helps neutralize harmful free radicals in cells), and antihistamine, but it is also a natural chelating (chemistry) agent that can help protect the body from the negative effects of pollution and exposure to heavy metals. As a specialty Acerola extract is usually added to jams, jellies, and ice cream and especially to fruit juice to enhance the vitamin C content and improve the flavor of some special products.

    Although Acerola are now found growing in most sub-tropical regions of the world, linguistic evidence seems to point to the Yucatan as a point of origin for this fruit. Cultivated in southern Texas, Florida, the Caribbean, and Southeast Asia, the largest plantings are in Brazil. Acerola is a fast growing bushy shrub or small tree with small pink and white flowers. The fruits are round and ovoid with three lobes, and are said to have a pleasant, tart taste. They are bright red when ripe, and come to maturity approximately 25 days after the first buds appear. The fruit of the Acerola is the richest known source of natural vitamin C in the world. They are usually picked when still green, because in this state they have almost twice as much vitamin C as when fully ripened. The fruit must be made into juice quickly as the fruit will begin to ferment and mold in as little as three days after harvesting. If not sold as a juice, the liquid is concentrated and pasteurized, and then spray dried into a powder. The type of Acerola powder offered by Mountain Rose Herbs is spray dried and can contain up to 20% of an organic maltodextrin carrier that is made from organic manioc root, and is standardized to have not less than 17.5% natural vitamin C.

    ACEROLA HISTORY & CULTIVATION

    This bush coming natural from the Antilles, the reason it is also called the Antilles Cherry, the Acerola was already known by natives of America for many centuries. The great interest in the fruit happened during the 1940's, when scientists from Puerto Rico found out that the fruit was rich in Ascorbic Acid also known as vitamin C. Acerola even became "Classified Information", it was prohibitied from exportation from countries where it was cultivated and industrialized. The scientific discovery sparked the cultivation and commercial use of Acerola.

    Acerola is a large, relatively fast growing, bushy, evergreen shrub or small tree usually 2 to 3 meters (6.6 to 9.8 feet) tall, but sometimes reaches up to 6 meters (15 to 20 feet) in height with spreading branches on a short trunk. The leaves are simple ovate-lanceolate about 2 to 8 centimeters (0.79 to 3.1 inches) wide and are attached to short petioles. They are opposite, ovate to elliptic-lanceolate, and have entire or undulating margins with small hairs, which can irritate skin. Flowers are bisexual and are 1 to 2 centimeters (0.39 to 0.79 inches) in diameter. They have ive pale to deep pink or red fringed petals, ten stamens, and six to ten glands on the calyx. There are three to five flowers per inflorescence, which are sessile or short-peduncled axillary cymes. The fruit is a bright red drupe 1 to 3 centimeters (0.39 to 1.2 inches) in diameter with a mass of 3 to 5 grams (0.11 to 0.18 ounce). Drupes are in pairs or groups of three, and each contains three triangular seeds. The drupes are juicy and very high in vitamin C and other nutrients. They are divided into three obscure lobes and are usually acid to subacid, giving them a sour taste, but may be sweet if grown well.

    acerola


    Acerola has a dark to bright red (rarely yellow-orange) cherry-like fruit that resembles the European cherry. The mature fruits are juicy and soft with a pleasant, tart flavor. Acerola grows in the Caribbean, Northern South America, Central America, India and Mexico. The newest places it can be found is in Southern Texas and California. M. glabra is a tree of the West Indies and northern South America. M. emarginata species is originally from Yucatan, and can be found in Mexico, Central America, the Caribbean, South America as far south as Peru and the south east region in Brazil, and in the southernmost parts of the contiguous United States (southern Florida and the Lower Rio Grande Valley of Texas). Its cousin, M. punicifolia, is present as far north as Florida and Texas. It is cultivated in the tropics and subtropics throughout the world, including the Canary Islands, Ghana, Ethiopia, Madagascar, Zanzibar, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, India, Java, Hawaii, and Australia.

    Acerola can be propagated by seed, cutting and other methods. Acerola prefers dry sandy soil and full sun, and cannot endure temperatures lower than 30°F. Because of its shallow roots, it has very low tolerance to winds. Acerola is a popular bonsai subject because of its small leaf, fruit and fine ramification. It is also grown as an ornamental and for hedges.

    ECOLOGY - INSECTS

    Acerola is a host plant for the caterpillars of the white-patched skipper (Chiomara asychis), Florida duskywing (Ephyriades brunneus), and brown-banded skipper (Timochares ruptifasciatus). Larvae of the acerola weevil (Anthonomus macromalus) feed on the fruits, while adults consume young leaves.

    ACEROLA PLANT CHEMICALS

    Until the plant camu-camu appeared on the scene, Acerola was considered the richest known source of natural vitamin C. Oranges provide 500 to 4,000 parts per million (ppm) of vitamin C, or ascorbic acid, whereas Acerola has been found in tests to provide ascorbic acid in a range of 16,000 to 172,000 ppm. Acerola can contain up to 4.5 percent vitamin C, compared to 0.05 percent in a peeled orange. The vitamin C content of acerola varies depending on ripeness, season, climate, and locality. As the fruit begins to ripen, it loses a great deal of its vitamin content; for this reason, most commercially-produced acerola is harvested while still green.

    Acerola also provides twice as much magnesium, pantothenic acid, and potassium as oranges. It also contains vitamin A (4,300 to 12,500 IU/100 grams, compared to approximately 11,000 IU for raw carrots) and thiamine, riboflavin, and niacin in concentrations comparable to those in other fruits.

    Thus far, 150 other constituents have been identified in acerola. In addition to ascorbic acid and the other vitamins mentioned above, acerola contains 3-methyl-3-butenol, dehydroascorbic acid, calcium, dextrose, diketogulonic acid, fructose, furfural, hexadecanoic acid, iron, limonene, l-malic acid, phosphorus, protein, and sucrose.

    While the nutrient composition depends on the species and environmental conditions, the most common components of Acerola and their average concentrations are as follows:

    ACEROLA USES, HEALTH BENEFITS & SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE

    ANTIOXIDANT FREE RADICAL FIGHTER

    In 1999, the Journal of the American Medical Association and the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition reported studies that showed the cells cannot absorb more vitamin C than the amount provided by taking 200 milligrams of vitamin C two or three times a day. This would seem to imply that high-potency sources of vitamin C such as Acerola provide ascorbic acid that is wasted by the body in fighting infection or treating degenerative disease. However, the vitamin C in Acerola treats condition by acting outside the cells rather than inside them. It prevents the shedding of viruses to general circulation or provides a high concentration of antioxidants needed to transport nexessary nutrients into the cell. Therfore, the high dosages of vitamin C delivered by Acerola are useful for many conditions.

    TRIBAL AND HERBAL MEDICINE USES

    Acerola juice is as common and popular in Brazil as orange juice is in North America. As a natural remedy in Brazil, a handful of fresh fruit is eaten for fever and dysentery. It is also used there as an anti-inflammatory, astringent, stimulant for the liver and renal systems, diuretic, and to support heart function as well as to heal wounds. It is employed as a nutritive aid for anemia, diabetes, high cholesterol levels, liver problems, rheumatism, tuberculosis, and during convalescence.

    In North America, the use of acerola is mostly based on its high content of vitamin C, which has long been thought in conventional and alternative health practices as a powerful antioxidant. The fruit is edible and widely consumed in the species' native area, and is cultivated elsewhere for its high vitamin C content. There are 1677.6 milligrams of vitamin C in 100 grams of fruit. Fruit can be used to make juices and pulps, both very rich in vitamin C and antioxidants and to produce vitamin C concentrate, baby food and juice.

    ACEROLA HEALTH BENEFITS

  • The antioxidant qualities of Acerola are important factors in helping maintain mental function and prevent dementia. It also prevents damaging oxidation in the body and stimulates the immune system, which slows the aging process. Scientific studies are showing promise as to the effectiveness of Acerola as it helps maintain adequate levels of vitamin C in the brain tissue of people with Parkinsonís disease who are also taking vitamin E supplementation.

  • Acerola extracts are used in skin products to help fight cellular aging and wrinkles. The mineral salts in this fruit promotes the rejuvenation of tired and stressed skin, and the mucilage and proteins in Acerola help prevent drying. This extract is also useful in treating fungal skin infections.

  • Taking Vitamin C supplementation can help normalize blood fat levels which can prevent or reverse atherosclerosis.

  • Acerola helps ward off infections and shortens the duration of colds and flu. It is one of three ingredients in a proprietary herbal medicine for allergic rhinitis.

  • Acerola helps replace the vitamin C that may be depleted during treatment with tetracyline antibiotics, corticosteroids such as prednisone, and oral contraceptives.

  • BIOLOGICAL ACTIVITIES AND CLINICAL RESEARCH

    Acerola has not been the subject of much clinical research since it is mainly consumed as a food, rather than used as an herbal remedy. In one in vitro study, the leaves, bark, and fruit of acerola were reported to have antifungal properties. New findings show that acerola may potentiate the benefits and actions of other supplements (the cholesterol-lowering actions of soy and alfalfa, in one study).

    Recent research in cosmetology indicates that vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant and free radical scavenger for the skin, and acerola extracts are now appearing in skin care products that fight cellular aging. In addition to its vitamin content, acerola contains mineral salts that have shown to aid in the remineralization of tired and stressed skin, and its mucilage and proteins have skin-hydrating properties and promote capillary conditioning.

    CURRENT PRACTICAL USES

    In North America, acerola is used for its high content of vitamin C. Dried acerola fruit extracts can now be found in tablet form and as an ingredient in many over-the-counter multivitamin products in the United States as a natural form of vitamin C.

    Traditional Preparation: In South America, Acerola juice is freely consumed like most other fruit juices. Consumers in the United States should take acerola supplements based on the vitamin C content provided in the products available in the marketplace. The adult recommended dietary allowance (RDA) for vitamin C is 60-75 mg daily. Therapeutic dosages of vitamin C for colds and flu, general illnesses, and debility are 1 to 5 grams (1000 to 5000 mg) daily.

    DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION

    SUPPLEMENTS

    Acerola comes in various forms and is an ingredient in many products. Known as extremely high in vitamin C and antioxidants, Acerola fruit is also high in iron, calcium, beta carotene and phosphorus. Acerola juice is as popular in Brazil as orange juice is in America. A standard dosage is between 40 and 100 mg a day depending on your weight and age. It is best to consult with your health care provider for the dosage that is best for you. Note: It is important to drink 6 to 8 glasses of water a day while taking Acerola.

    The fruit is the only part used. Typical preparation includes the fruit, itself, eaten when ripe, and it is sometimes made into a jelly, jam or syrup. The fruit, when picked, must be processed quickly before it starts to ferment and mold, and most of the nutritional use in the United States is from spray dried, freeze dried, or from concentrated fruits which are processed immediately at the site and exported accordingly. When using commerical products, read and follow product label instructions for use.

    ACEROLA SAFETY, CAUTIONS & INTERACTIONS

    SAFETY CONCERNS

    Acerola is generally regarded as safe when taken in the recommended doses. This herb should be avoided immediately after cancer surgery and while on chemotherapy. People who have hemachromatosis (iron overload) should avoid Acerola. There is no danger of overdose through the use of acerola skin creams. But, before using such a cream, test it on a small area to see if any sign of an allergic reaction develops. If there is no redness or swelling forty-eight hours later, apply the cream as needed.

    Large dosages of vitamin C can cause diarrhea.

    A study published in 2002 reported that the fruit of the acerola can cause an allergic reaction in people who are also allergic to latex. Those who may be allergic to latex may also be allergic to Acerola in supplement form or to its addition in various fruit juices.,

    There are also several reports that the leaves may be irritating to some people, but this should not affect consumption of the powdered berry form.

    No drug interactions have been reported.

From immune support to healthy skin and hair, Vitamin C is a vital part of optimum health. Vitamin C in sufficient doses has been shown to reduce the incidence of arterial lesions and consequently, cardiovascular disease. Vitamin C is essential in the formation of body protein and maintaining healthy bones, teeth, skin, cartilage and capillaries. It also plays important roles in wound healing and as a natural antihistamine. This vitamin also aids in the formation of liver bile and helps to fight viruses and to detoxify alcohol and other substances.

  • Nutrition Basics: Acerola Herbal Information



  • CITRUS BIOFLAVONOID PRODUCTS

    Bioflavonoids are not true vitamins in the strictest sense, sometimes being referred to as vitamin P, and may be found in herbal plants, fruits, nuts and bark; and because they cannot be manufactured by the body, they must be supplied through the diet. The letter ''P'' represents permeability factor, and it was given to this group of nutrients because they improve capillary strength and permeability. Citrus Bioflavonoids are a class of flavonoids that includes Rutin, Hesperidin, Quercitin, Eriodictyl and Citron, and they are essential for the absorption of vitamin C, which should be taken simultaneously, so they may act synergistically for maximum benefit. Citrus fruits are well known for providing ample amounts of vitamin C, but they also provide Citrus Bioflavonoids, which are located in the white material just beneath the peel of citrus fruits and may be found in grapefruits, lemons, tangerines, limes and oranges. Other sources of bioflavonoids include apricots, nuts, peppers, buckwheat, blackberries, black currants cherries, grapes, plums, prunes and rose hips. In addition, several herbs also provide bioflavonoids, including Chervil, Elderberry, Hawthorne Berry, Horsetail and Shepherd's Purse.

  • CHRYSIN BIOFLAVONOID SUPPLEMENT PRODUCTS

    Chrysin is chemically in the isoflavone family, usually extracted from passion flower plants.Chrysin happens to be a very good inhibitor of aromatase, the enzyme in the body that converts testosterone into estradiol, and androstenedione into estrone. When this enzyme is inhibited, testosterone (as well as androstenedione) will tend to accumulate to higher concentrations. Indeed, numerous studies have shown that levels of testosterone rise when the action of the aromatase enzyme is blocked. (For example, an average rise of 45% was recently reported in a study at Massachusetts General Hospital.) It therefore comes as no surprise that chrysin is popular among athletes and other people eager to increase their testosterone levels, often in conjunction with supplemental testosterone precursors.

Diosmin and Hesperidin are used widely in Europe for decreasing the appearance of varicose veins and spider veins, and also hemmorhoids. Hesperidin is the predominant flavonoid in lemons and oranges. The peel and membranous parts of these fruits have the highest hesperidin concentrations. Hesperidin is classified as a citrus bioflavonoid. Hesperidin, Diosmin and other flavonoids thought to reduce capillary permeability and to have anti-inflammatory action were collectively known as vitamin P. These substances, however, are not vitamins and are no longer referred to, except in older literature, as vitamin P.

    LIFE EXTENSION PRODUCTS

    LEF: Bioflavonoid Cream, Life Extension, 1 oz
    Cosmesis Bioflavonoid Cream provides your skin with targeted topical support by harnessing the power of naturally occurring plant metabolites called flavonoids. Three of the best known are quercetin, hesperidin, and rutin. These have solid research on their skin-supporting benefits. Quercetin combats premature aging at the cellular level by enhancing the viability of skin cells, which has a direct impact on your skinís elasticity and collagen. When applied directly to the skin, quercetin helps protect skin's antioxidants from sun radiation and increases the production of collagen, a substance necessary for optimal skin support. Hesperidin helps guard against uneven skin tone by maintaining the activity of tyrosinase, the enzyme responsible for producing the skin pigment melanin. And rutin provides targeted support for the capillaries and veins just under the surface of your skin. This boosts skin health by allowing it to receive more oxygen and nutrients. As beneficial as these plant metabolites are on their own, they exhibit an even greater effect when used together. Cosmesis Bioflavonoid Cream combines the power of all three of these natural ingredients to help you defend against visible signs of premature aging.

  • QUERCETIN (QUERCETIN-C / ACTIVATED QUERCETIN) SUPPLEMENT PRODUCTS

    Quercetin is a bioflavonoid similar to rutin that is commonly found in red apples and red onions. Combined with Vitamin C, bioflavonoids work to rebuild small blood vessels and other structural parts of the body. Quercetin has powerful anti-inflammatory effects, acts as an antihistamine, and helps reduce viral activity. Human cell culture studies with quercetin have demonstrated its capability to inhibit the release of histamine from mast cells. As an antioxidant, it may help to prevent heart disease by protecting LDL cholesterol from becoming damaged, which cardiologists believe is the underlying cause of heart disease. Quercetin may also block an enzyme that leads to accumulation of sorbitol, which has been linked to nerve, eye and kidney damage in people with diabetes. Quercetin is a potent natural reverse transcriptase blocker. Though large doses may be required in humans to produce therapeutic effects, quercetin has been shown to have antiviral activity against HIV, herpes simplex, polio virus and the respiratory syncytial virus (RSV). One study even showed that it was possible to overcome the polio virus by pairing vitamin C with quercetin. Vitamin C is an antioxidant vitamin, which helps prevent oxidation of water-soluble molecules that could otherwise create free radicals. It also acts as a stimulator to the immune system; through this function, along with its antioxidant properties, it may help in the prevention and treatment of infections and other diseases. It may be helpful against bacterial, viral and fungal diseases.

  • RUTIN BIOFLAVONOID PRODUCTS

    Rutin is a bioflavonoid, and it provides essential support molecules for vitamin C absorption (and should, in fact, be taken at the same time to gain maximum benefit). Rutin supplementation prevents the breakdown of vitamin C in the body before it is metabolized and intensifies its beneficial immune-enhancing effects in the body. With regard to eye health, the bioflavonoid, Rutin, is said to improve capillary integrity and believed to help lower ocular pressure when used in conjunction with conventional drugs. (Bilberry extract is particularly rich in Rutin and can be beneficial in cases of diabetic retinopathy.) Rutin may be very helpful in combating cataracts, macular degeneration (the most common cause of blindness) and free radical damage to the retina. The antioxidant activity that fights free radical damage appears to play a role in the prevention of cataracts and other forms of visual impairment. Because Rutin improves capillary integrity (it works synergistically with vitamin C in this regard) by protecting and preserving the structure (permeability) and strength of those capillaries, this action is said to be of great help for capillary fragility (easy bruising and bleeding) and venous insufficiency (varicose veins and spider veins). Because Rutin strengthens capillaries, it may be helpful in reducing the symptoms of hemophilia. The bioflavonoid, Rutin, is thought to lessen symptoms associated with prolonged bleeding and help in cases of bleeding gums and hemorrhage.
