Beauty From Within Starts with Amavico Acerola Powder
Updated: Jul 16, 2021
Recently, consumers have begun to take a more holistic approach when it comes to beauty. The global nutricosmetics market was valued at USD $6,925.49 million in 2020 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 8.05% through 2026. The rapidly increasing focus on achieving internal well-being means manufacturers within the beauty, health, and wellness industries are on the hunt for ingredients that can help consumers achieve beauty from within, and Amavico has the perfect solution: acerola powder. Acerola is a small, round fruit that we harvest from the Amazon Rainforest and in Brazil. A superfruit that is rich in nutritious vitamins and minerals, acerola is commonly found in food and beverage products, but also can be used in both external and internal beauty products. Acerola is the perfect addition to dietary supplements and nutricosmetics, as well as serums, face cleansers, bath products, cosmetics, and more. Here’s a breakdown of what makes acerola the key to achieving beauty from within.
Extremely Rich in Vitamin C
While acerola contains several vitamins and minerals, the fruit is most well-known for its extremely high vitamin C content. The riper the acerola cherry, the less vitamin C it has, which is why we make our acerola powder from harvested, unripened acerola cherries. A study on fruits with vitamin C content and their relative amounts revealed that acerola contained the highest amount of vitamin C; one cup of acerola cherries contains 1,700mg of the vitamin. In order to get this amount of vitamin C from oranges, a fruit often correlated with vitamin C, you’d have to eat 16 cups of them! The recommended daily value of vitamin C is 65-90mg; the equivalent of just 3 acerola cherries, but 1 cup of oranges. When in search of an ingredient that contains vitamin C, acerola is overwhelmingly the best choice.
There are several health benefits associated with vitamin C, and that therefore can be found in acerola. Vitamin C, an antioxidant, may help with the following: boost immunity and protect against immune system deficiencies, protect against heart disease, reduce risk of chronic disease, help manage high blood pressure, help prevent iron deficiency, and help prevent the onset of memory loss as you age. Additionally, there are studies linking acerola to cancer prevention, protection against eye disease, and treatment of lead toxicity.
Acerola is also great for the health of your skin. Because vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant, it possesses anti-inflammatory properties that reduce redness and even skin tone both when applied directly to skin and when taken orally. The fruit may also aid collagen production, the repair and prevention of dry skin, reduction of wrinkles, and the prevention of UV-induced free radical damage,
Contains Vitamin A
In addition to the fruit’s rich vitamin C content, acerola also contains a significant amount of vitamin A. Similar to vitamin C, vitamin A is an antioxidant, which helps prevent free radical damage. Vitamin A has several health benefits; most notably that it aids eyesight preservation. Vitamin A helps prevent blindness and may help slow the decline of eyesight that occurs with age. Other benefits of vitamin A include a lowered risk of certain cancers, immune system support, and a reduced risk of acne. Also known as retinoids, vitamin A is commonly used in external products due to its ability to help treat acne and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles when applied to skin.
Contains B Vitamins
While not as prominent as the vitamin C or vitamin A that is found in acerola, the fruit also contains vitamins B-1, B-2, and B-3. The Vitamin B complex is essential for a regulated digestion system and a fully functioning metabolism. Vitamin B-1, or thiamine, helps turn food into energy and is necessary for the growth, development, and function of cells. Vitamin B-2, or riboflavin, helps the body break down protein, fats, and carbohydrates. Vitamin B-3, or niacin, can help lower cholesterol levels.
Rich in Minerals
Along with being rich in vitamins, acerola is also rich in minerals; most prominently calcium, potassium, iron, and magnesium. Calcium is important for bone health and helps to build and maintain strong bones. Potassium, an electrolyte, helps regulate fluid balance, nerve signals, and muscle contractions. Iron helps transport oxygen throughout your body and ensures that your body is able to make enough healthy oxygen-carrying red blood cells. Finally, magnesium helps regulate blood pressure, steady your heartbeat, and strengthen bones.
