Nutrabasics - Acerola
Acerola is a cherry-like fruit grown in Jamaica, whose shape and colour resemble a cherry. It is sweet and sour in taste and has been highly valued since ancient times. It is rich in vitamin C and it is the edible fruit with the highest concentration of the substance. Our capsules provide 80 mg of vitamin C, 100% of the recommended daily intake. Vitamin C plays an important role in supporting the immune system, fighting free radicals and synthesising collagen. A further benefit of using acerola instead of pure Vitamin C is that it also provides a wealth of other important substances, including magnesium, Vitamin B1, B2, Niacin and pantothenic acid.

Nutrabasics. Whole elemental nutrition. The main base in the development of the line of Nutrabasic Plants of Drasanvi is the use of vegetable extracts of the best quality, and extraction processes that ensure the intensity and most efficient dosage, with maximum respect for all its natural properties. 1 or 2 daily dose is enough. We bet on standardized plant extracts, meaning extracts in which we ensure an adequate, uniform and constant amount of active ingredients. With this process we get highly efficient concentrations without the need of taking a large number of capsules. Our labeling enable you to know the dose taken, the amount of active ingredient and powered plant equivalency consumed per daily dose. The extraction methods are always respectful of the environment, a philosophy that we keep up in our FSC packaging (made from cardboard from timber obtained from sustainably managed forests) Acerola (Malpighia prunicifolia L.) Acerola is a cherry-like fruit grown in Jamaica, whose shape and colour resemble a cherry. It is sweet and sour in taste and has been highly valued since ancient times. It is rich in vitamin C and it is the edible fruit with the highest concentration of the substance. Specifically our capusles provide 80 mg of Vitamin C, which means an intake of 100% of the Recommended Daily Amount. The virtues of the Vitamin C are many: contributes to the normal function of the inmune system, contributes to the normal formation of collagen for the normal functioning of blood vessels, contributes to protect cells against oxidative damage, among others. A further benefit of using acerola instead of pure Vitamin C is that it also provides a wealth of other important substances, including magnesium, Vitamin B1, B2, Niacin and pantothenic acid.
The use of dry extract
We use dry plant extract instead of powdered plant extract in our acerola capsules. This allows us to concentrate the product, giving exactly the same results just using less of it. For this product we have chosen acerola extract, rich in Vitamin C. Dry extract refers to a specific extraction process, during which the active ingredients are retained, while the impurities and other substances that are not needed are removed. The use of plant extracts has a number of advantages over vegetable-based and powdered forms:
- It is possible to measure the exact amount of active ingredients (standardised extracts).
- Products based on plant extract are more concentrated than those made from powdered form (a concentrated dose is easy to take).
- The assimilation of the active ingredients alone is easier than the assimilation of all of the compounds of the plant because there are impurities and fibre present in the powder.
Another important advantage of our product is the use of standardised extract, i.e. the provision of active plant ingredients remains constant over time. In the case of acerola, this extract is vitamin C and it provides you with 80 mg per daily dose.
Concentrated dose, easy to take
The use of concentrated dry extract and active ingredients allows us to provide the same dose in just one capsule.
The capsules we use are vegetable-based, made from hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, and have been certified by the Vegetarian Society. Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose is obtained from the cellulose found in various plant structures.
Free from allergens
We have ensured that our acerola capsules have not come into contact with the most common allergens, in particular with gluten.
Our acerola capsules come in blister packs: they protect the contents from any knocks as well as from environmental factors, ensuring that the product remains intact for as long as possible. This type of packaging is the best for protection against humidity and microbial contamination.
