Let’s not forget: To achieve balanced immune support through food, it’s important to focus on both immune-stimulating and immune-calming ingredients. That’s where acerola cherries come into play: They are rich in antioxidants and phytonutrients, such as vitamins C, A, B1, B2, niacin, albumin, iron, phosphorus, and calcium, which can help support your body’s ability to combat oxidative stress.*
Technically, they can be eaten in their raw, fresh form (these cherries grow on shrubs in warmer, tropical climates), but they perish rather quickly. That’s why acerola cherries are more often sold in a powder, supplement, or juice form. We assume Saeed uses an acerola powder, as she mentions she likes to blend it into her smoothies.
