Fruity chewable tablets containing 250 mg Vitamin C from organic Acerola berries and blended with Blueberries, Red Raspberries, and Cranberries.
Vitamin C, a water-soluble vitamin, is an integral part of maintaining good health, supporting the immune system, and is a critical factor in forming collagen (key structural component of bones, skin, ligaments, tendons, and blood vessels).
Most Vitamin C supplements are synthetically made from genetically modified corn. Many harsh chemicals such as hexane and acetone are used in the process and while they are not in the finished product, workers are exposed to them and waste pollutants from them are given off into the environment.
Naturally Nova Scotia's Vitamin C derives its nutritional content entirely from organic fruit; Acerola Berries.
Acerola Berries, also known as the Barbados cherry, are grown on the Acerola tree (genus Malpighia), native to the American tropics. They are not a true cherry although they have a close resemblance.
The Acerola berry is uniquely high in Vitamin C as compared to many other fruits. One glass of fresh Acerola juice can contain the same amount of Vitamin C as 14 liters of orange juice. The high concentration of Vitamin C in tropical and subtropical plants, such as the Acerola berry, is common as they receive long exposure to sunlight.
The antioxidant behaviour of Acerola fruit has been shown in many chemical model systems and in a biological system with direct health implications. Acerola is effective in protecting cells against oxidative damage and premature aging caused by the generation of free radicals.
Vitamin C found in whole foods like Acerola co-exist with bioflavonoids, carotenoids, and other complex phenolics. This ensures the stability and related bioavailability and activity of the Vitamin C.
Organic Acerola Berry is an excellent source of non-synthetic, bioavailable, Vitamin C and antioxidants. When Acerola harvesting stage, and drying and packaging methods are considered, a premium and effective whole food source of Vitamin C is the result.
Acerola's uniquely high amount of ascorbic acid paired with the presence and synergistic effect of Nature's stabilizers (bioflavonoids and carotenoids) make it a preferred Vitamin C source.
