There had been very little study upon the North American Acerola Berry (Malpighia Glabra) until relatively recent years. It was then that it was discovered that the berry contained a substantial amount of vitamin. Indeed, it has been shown that Acerola Berries contain 32% more vitamin C than oranges, and for a time apple juice mixed with small amounts of Acerola Berry extract was being utilized as a gentler Vitamin C supplement for young children. It has also been shown that Acerola Berry contains a high concentration of antioxidants, which are believed to help prevent and relieve damage sustained by the body at a cellular level.
Because of these qualities, Acerola Berry Extract (sometimes provided in a powder form), is often prescribed by herbalists as a way to boost the immune system. Some studies have also shown that they might be combined with soy to combat high cholesterol, while studies for diabetics have revealed that it may help decrease blood sugar levels. Aceroal Berry can also be found in use within the cosmetics industry, where it is believed to help prevent skin discoloration.
