Saturday Superfood Spotlight:  Acerola Cherry

Good ol’ Shakeology. It’s packed with so many powerful and delicious ingredients from around the world and today’s featured ingredient is acerola cherry! It’s a tiny tropical fruit that packs quite the punch. What makes the acerola cherry so amazing?

First of all, just one cherry has 65 times more vitamin C than an orange and about twice the potassium, magnesium, and vitamin B5. And that’s no typo. The acerola cherry is the second richest fruit source of vitamin C in the world. Only camu-camu (which is also in Shakeology) has more. The vitamin C in acerola cherries have higher absorbency rates into the body than other natural sources. Plus, acerola cherries also contain other key minerals our bodies need, such as calcium, iron, phosphorus, thiamin, riboflavin, and niacin. Cheers to good health!

So now that you know a bit more about what’s so super about this little ingredient in Shakeology, you can feel even better about fueling your body up with the Healthiest Meal of the Day! Try the sampler pack today!
