Default Why not use Acerola for C source?

Just learning.

Acerola seems phenomenal, though, perhaps not in the "lime" light it once was.

What do you all think about using IT as my Vitamin C source? Anyone know of a good one that is Organic, 100% Acerola (even powder is fine), non-gmo, no fillers, preservatives, yada yada.


Help and thanks!

Acerola C is very expensive. Stick with the ordinary C you can buy at the health food store. It will do the job for you.
Doctors give drugs of which they know little,
into bodies, of which they know less,
for diseases of which they know nothing at all.

I am planning to switch from Ester-C to Amla.

Searching for "Organic Acerola" on iHerb,
they have a few options, including "Nature's Way Alive!"
which has both Amla and Acerola, as well as Goji and Kiwi.

Not yet decided, but am still hoping to find a good Acerola resource.

Found an Acerola powder but don't understand the manufacturer's wording in the description.
Perhaps you can help.

Here's what they say about it:

"Our Synergized™ Acerola extract powder is certified organic and kosher and standardized to 20% all-natural vitamin C, one of the highest levels of 100% naturally occurring vitamin C available in any organic fruit powder. Our prized berries are grown near the rainforest in Brazil in NOP-certified organic orchards and processed in our proprietary facility located within minutes of the orchards."

This is the part that I do not understand. What does it mean?:
"100% Natural Vitamin C / Standardized to 20% Naturally Occurring Vitamin C"

Thanks all!
