Acerola or Acerola Cherry (Malpighia glabra) is a shrub also known as Barbados cherry, West Indian cherry and wild crape myrtle. These bright-red fruits are known for being one of the highest natural sources of vitamin C on the planet. Food sources of vitamin C are the most bioavailable and compatible to the living matrix of the human body and far superior to isolated vitamin C. Vitamin C never occurs as an isolate in Nature. It occurs as part of an entire complex, which includes other important cofactors that assist the body with proper absorption. Truly Natural Vitamin C is 100% whole food, corn-free vitamin C.
Vitamin C Plays A Role In Ovulation And Egg Health
Researchers have shown that ascorbic acid plays a very important role in the regulation of menstruation and ovarian function. Vitamin C excretion is increased and declines immediately prior to ovulation, and then immediately increases again just after temperature rises post-ovulation. Researchers speculate this reflects uptake of C in the preovulatory ovary, which then facilitates proper ovulation. These ascorbic acid levels are stimulatory to the hormones progesterone and oxytocin, and have been found in high concentrations in the corpus luteum.
High levels of C present in the ovaries may be responsible for collagen synthesis, which is required for follicle and corpus luteum growth, as well as repair of the ovary post-ovulation. Problems with this function may contribute to the development of ovarian cyst.
Vitamin C for Luteal Phase Defect
According to a study published in Fertility and Sterility (2003;80:459–61) vitamin C improves hormone levels and increases fertility in women with a luteal phase defect (or progesterone deficiency). 150 women with luteal phase defect were enrolled in the study. The participants were given 750mg of vitamin C per day or no treatment at all.
Results showed that the group receiving vitamin C had an increase in progesterone levels. While the women receiving no treatment had no change in progesterone. The rate of pregnancy was significantly higher in the vitamin C group: 25% within six months, while only 11% of the untreated women became pregnant in the same time period.
Reduction In Heavy Menstrual Bleeding
Vitamin C supplementation has been shown to help reduce heavy menstrual bleeding by improving the strength of the capillaries. One study showed that heavy menstrual bleeding was reduced in 87% women who regularly supplemented with higher doses of vitamin C. Vitamin C is essential for iron absorption to help prevent iron-deficiency anemia caused by heavy menstrual bleeding.
Support for Endometriosis and Uterine Fibroids
Studies show that vitamin C increases cellular immunity and decreases autoimmune progression and fatigue. This may help slow the spread and growth of endometriosis and uterine fibroids. Vitamin C enhances immunity, strengthens the capillaries, and may inhibit tumor growth, all of which are important aspects for health management of these conditions.
Vitamin C Is Necessary for a Healthy Pregnancy
Vitamin C supplementation, in addition to a healthy, vitamin C rich diet has been shown to reduce the likelihood of preeclampsia and premature rupture of the membranes in pregnancy. Large quantities of ascorbic acid is utilized by the female during conception and are necessary to formation and integrity of the fetal membranes. Research suggests vitamin C supplementation may also help prevent birth defects.
