Summary
Malpighia glabra can be found growing from Texas and Florida to Brazil, and is believed to have been originated in the Yucatan. It is a fast growing shrub with white and pink flowers bearing oval shaped fruits with a tarty taste. The powder itself does not have the characteristic citrus taste of pure vitamin c, instead, Acerola has an earthy taste, with the citrus flavor resting in the background. It is a common belief amongst herbalists that whole herbs are better for the body than extracts. Acerola is a fine example of this, providing the body with numerous minerals and vitamins that assist the body in it's utilization of it's high vitamin C content.

Precautions
Acerola can cause an allergic reaction to those who are sensitive to latex. As with all herbs, please speak to your doctor before use, especially so if you are pregnant or taking any other herbs, supplements or medications.
