Known as a Super Fruit, Acerola Cherry provides a naturally bio-available and powerful source of Vitamin C which is fully utilised by the body, unlike synthetic ascorbic acid which is sold as vitamin C. Researchers have identified nearly 150 nutritive constituents in acerola cherry which includes bioflavonoids, proteins, mineral salts, iron, calcium and phosphorus. As a comparison of Vitamin C content to other fruits, 1 small Acerola cherry contains around 80mg Vitamin C - this is 30 times the amount found in Oranges of the same weight.
This vegetable has many health benefits which has been used for hundreds of years as a natural remedy for many ailments. It contains a host of nutrients such as Vitamin A, C, E, bioflavonoids, iron, folic acid, volatile oils, coumarins, flavonoids, chlorophyll and powerful anticancer components. Parsley contains more vitamin C than any other culinary vegetables - three times as much as found in oranges and about the same amount as blackcurrants. It's iron content is also high around twice as much as spinach. The plant is a good source of manganese, calcium and potassium.

Blackcurrants are a great food for increasing energy and the seeds are rich in unsaturated fatty acids. A recent scientific study has revealed that the natural chemicals and compounds found in blackcurrants may help balance the impact exercise can have on the body. Researchers from New Zealand have uncovered a compound in blackcurrant which may help breathing in some types of asthma. British scientists are investigating how blackcurrants may hold the key in helping slow the progression of Alzheimer's. Also helps to protect against urinary tract infections.
This fruit is another great source of Vitamin C and bioflavonoids. There is as much vitamin C in a cup of rosehip pulp as in 40 oranges. Vitamins A, B1-3 and K are also present. Bioflavonoids, present in the pulp and the rind of the fruits, exert a synergic action to Vitamin C, enhancing its absorption by the organism. Native Americans have been using rosehips as tea for thousands of years. Studies show rosehip may reduce the symptoms of osteoarthritis and help sore, achy joints function better. Its antioxidant potential is even greater than that of blueberries.
This is a true gift from Nature - a potent cold and virus fighter. Elderberries contain more vitamin C than any other herb except for black currants and rosehips.
Traditional and scientific research indicates that elderberries promote disease resistance and that they also have the ability to prevent and even treat a virus. Elderberries have been used for centuries in the treatment of colds, viral infections and upper respiratory conditions including asthma.
Anthocyanins found in elderberries have more antioxidant capacity than either vitamin E or vitamin C. Elderberry anthocyanins enhance immune function by boosting the production of cytokines, proteins acting as messengers in the immune system to help regulate immune response. They are rich in antioxidants, vitamins A, B, and C, flavonoids, and potassium. Said to lower cholesterol, improve vision, reduce cold and flu symptoms, support a strong immune system and aid in heart health. Elderberries have also been known to improve diabetes symptoms, assist in stress reduction, improve digestion, alleviate muscle aches, relieve arthritis symptoms and reduce fevers. Additionally, the juice from the elderberry can also be used as a mild laxative and diuretic.
