What Makes The Acerola Cherry Great? Pt. 2 Of 3
In the first part of this three-part series, we talked about the usefulness of the acerola cherry in promoting a healthy body and healthy immune system. This underrated little berry is useful for far more than its vitamin C content, however, and we’re here to discuss some of the other things that make it a great addition to your supplements. We understand that you don’t want to end up taking dozens of pills in your supplement routine, and we don’t think you should have to! Not with superfruits like the acerola cherry at your disposal. Let’s take a look at another few reasons to love this berry.
The acerola berry, in addition to being tasty, is remarkably low in fat. In fact, it’s fat free! This is great news for anyone looking for a fruit juice that tastes good and is beneficial to their body. You can indulge in acerola cherry juice every day and not risk piling on the pounds, which is a real concern with various other fruits. Even better is that this delicious berry is sweet all on its own.
It’s important to keep in mind that just because something is “all natural” or “organic”, it’s not automatically good for you. This is perhaps especially true when it comes to fruits. Because they’re commonly labeled as healthy snacks or additions to meals, most people think that fruit is inherently good for your health. In reality, fruits can contain high amounts of sugar that can be detrimental to your health when consumed too often. The acerola cherry also contains sugar, but at a reasonable level. One cup of the juice, for example, contains only 11 grams of sugar. This means that the drink is tasty as well as healthy (or, at the very least, not overloaded with sugar).
In addition to being fat free and low in sugar, the acerola cherry is also low in its calorie content. It’s great as a snack or an addition to your diet because you’re not going to break any calorie limits by consuming it, in other words. With just 56 calories to be found in a cup of acerola juice and 31 in a cup of raw berries, the acerola cherry is a healthy and guilt-free addition to your supplement regimen.
