What are the benefits of acerola on our skin?

In 2017, the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics (IBGE) estimated acerola production at around 61,000 tonnes in the country. This makes Brazil one of the largest producers in the world.

Around 43% of the annual production of this berry is exported to the United States, Germany, Japan and… France.

Why this craze for the acerola berry? Well, its vitamin C content is much higher than that of any other fruit. Up to 60 times higher than that of orange, which we are used to considering as the queen of vitamin C!

But then, how does this little exotic cherry act on our body? And what are the benefits of acerola on our skin ? We see that without waiting.

“Acerola”? But still ?

Native to the forests of South America, it is mainly cultivated in Brazil, Venezuela, the West Indies, the southern United States and in the Yucatán province of Mexico. This small red fruit is similar to the European cherry, produced on the shrub of the same name.

This berry is commonly used as a food supplement thanks to its high vitamin C content, particularly to support the immune system . It brings vitality and energy . Used to combat fatigue, whether general, regular or physical, it also acts on physical recovery after exercise 💪🏻

And as if that wasn't enough, acerola also acts positively on intellectual abilities such as memory and concentration. Finally, thanks to its biochemical components, it will indirectly improve the quality of sleep. Find out more in our complete guide dedicated to acerola .

The beneficial effects of acerola on the skin

The acerola berry is considered a “superfruit” 🦸 And rightly so!

Composed of a high content of vitamin C, it also contains vitamins A, B1, B2, B3 and B5. Its composition includes magnesium, potassium, iron and phosphorus. But also beta-carotene, proteins and polyphenols.

So how, thanks to these constituents, does the acerola berry interact with our body?

In addition to its strong antioxidant power, acerola will also have other beneficial effects for the skin.

Vitamin B5, in particular, is a vitamin that participates in the metabolism of lipids, carbohydrates and other proteins. It allows certain hormones to be synthesized.

Vitamin B9 contributes to the proper functioning of the immune system, which is important in the context of skin reactions, as well as to the cell division process, involved for example in healing.

Finally, acerola has a strong capacity to restructure and tone tissues. Indeed, the different minerals it contains, and also vitamin C, contribute to the production of collagen . As a reminder, collagen allows the skin to be resistant and elastic. If your skin doesn't have enough, then it loses elasticity.

To find out more, we talk in more detail in the following article about the (many) benefits of vitamin C on the skin .
