Potent Antioxidant Duo
Henry Blooms Natural Acerola & Vitamin C Powder features two antioxidants to protect against the damaging effects of free radicals. Vitamin C is an important nutritional antioxidant and free radical scavenger, which can also reduct the risk of free radical cellular damage. Acerola fruit is also an antioxidant which naturally contains bioflavonoids such as quercetin and proanthocyanidins.
Acerola (Malpighia glabra), also known as Barbados cherry, is the fruit of a small tree known as Malpighia glabra L, in the Antilles and north of South America. In 1945, the School of Medicine at the University of Puerto Rico found that the Barbados cherry was a very rich source of Vitamin C.
