More info

Barbados cherry, acerola or Malpighia glabra is a tree of the Malpighiaceae family.
Its fruit is called Barbados cherry or Caribbean cherry because it looks a lot like cherry.
Acerola grows in exotic regions of South America, particularly in Peru and in the Amazon rainforest of Venezuela and Brazil.
Its flowers are creamy pink.
Acerola seeds are pale brown in color.

Its interest as a source of vitamin C caught the attention of scientists since the 1950s.
However, acerola is not only an exceptional source of vitamin C, it also contains high levels of phosphorus, calcium, vitamins B (thiamine, riboflavin, piridoxine), as well as highly antioxidant factors, including flavonoids that are also found in the jostaberry or pomegranate.

In Brazil, where the tree is grown, the fruits are consumed in the form of juice.
Indians in the Amazon rainforest use Malpighia glabra for diarrhea and liver problems.

In medicine, the fruit of acerola is used in powder form and is indicated in functional asthenia and to facilitate the recovery of weight after weight loss.
In general, it is prescribed during cooling and against fatigue.
