The benefits of acerola on sleep

Acerola, an exceptional source of vitamin C

Acerola is a berry rich in vitamin C , around 20 to 60 times more than an orange. Which makes this fruit, native to South America, a solid antioxidant. Because we don't teach you: vitamin C has many virtues: it is known to reduce oxidative stress and support the immune system.

Vitamin C, a natural antioxidant

Yes, for sleep, vitamin C can also play an important role. And not the one you think. A common misconception suggests that vitamin C keeps us awake and that consuming it in the evening would have an impact on our sleep: restlessness, difficulty falling asleep, for example.


It's the opposite, vitamin C is involved in the synthesis of melatonin , also called the “sleep hormone”. With vitamins B1, B3, B6 and B9 and minerals such as magnesium, it helps synthesize serotonin then melatonin at bedtime.

Other benefits of acerola for the body

Acerola is an astonishing fruit with a unique composition. It contains vitamin C in abundance, but also vitamins B5, B3, A, magnesium, phosphorus, iron and beta-carotenes. A super fruit for the body since it: contributes to effective immune defenses; fight against fatigue; contributes to the beauty of the skin by participating in the formation of collagen, etc.

To know all the benefits of this little berry, an article is specially dedicated to it on our blog .

How to use acerola to promote sleep?

Vitamin C concentrate, the most effective form

Acerola can be consumed in juice, powder or tablet. Since fruit juice is very acidic, it is necessary to cut it with another flavor.


To be sure you swallow the right dose of vitamin C, we recommend tablets or powder. The powder may be more suitable for people with swallowing problems or for children.


The tablets, for their part, are precisely dosed and thus save you from having to take the measurements yourself.


In any case, prefer a form containing natural vitamin C as is the case in our acerola tablets .

Recommended doses to benefit from the effects of acerola

Our tablets are dosed with 1 g of acerola titrated with 17% vitamin C. This means that with one tablet, you assimilate 170 mg of natural vitamin C. It's the right dose to benefit from all the benefits of acerola.

Precautions for use to take into account

Consumption of acerola is not recommended in certain cases:

  • for children under 4 years old without a medical prescription;
  • for people suffering from gout;
  • if you follow regular treatment:
  • the advice of your doctor will avoid possible drug interactions.

Acerola, a natural solution for fatigue and tension

The effects of fatigue on sleep and the body

If lack of sleep causes fatigue, too much fatigue also causes sleep disorders . It’s a vicious cycle that, once established, is difficult to break. Fatigue causes stress and irritability which are likely to increase phases of restless sleep or difficulty falling asleep.

Acerola, an ally for fatigue and tension

Combating fatigue by regulating sources of stress and supplementing with acerola can break this circle, and allow you to enjoy truly restorative sleep. You then create a virtuous circle: effective sleep, less fatigue , less stress, better conditions for sleeping well. Especially since the vitamin C contained in acerola also contributes to normal psychological functions.

Other tips to promote good sleep

Of course, acerola alone is not the miracle that promises long nights of sleep.

Taking a food supplement must be accompanied by new habits to be in the best possible conditions for sleeping:

  • limit blue light from screens in the evening;
  • eat lighter for dinner;
  • benefit from a quiet, dark room.

There are many tips for promoting sleep: it's up to you to find the ones that work best for you.


Consuming acerola to improve your sleep may seem counterintuitive at first. But, when we know that vitamin C does not prevent us from sleeping and provides quality nighttime conditions, acerola then becomes an asset for our sleep and an effective solution to combat fatigue .
