Why use Acerola?Updated 7 months ago

Acerola (often known as the Acerola Cherry) is a berry from a shrub-like tree that is native to Central America and South America, Mexico, and the Caribbean. Our Acerola berries come from Brazil. 

Acerola is often and confusingly referred to as a ‘cherry’, but it is not. We have chosen to include the Acerola berry as it’s a natural source of Vitamin C. Vitamin C is not only necessary to maintain energy and general vitality, but it contributes to normal collagen formation for the normal function of the skin. You will often find added Vitamin C to collagen blends, but we wanted to use a natural source that could be gathered from berries vs a synthetic ingredient.
