The herb of the all about Vitamin C

OK, I think most of us our concerned with this years cold and flu season, I know I am.  So a great way to get some extra fluids, that taste great, is to have a nice cup of tea loaded with vitamin C.  There are a few herbs that can help with this, but the top most packed with Vitamin C is the Accerola Fruit.  It is loaded with Vitamin C from 1,500 mg to 14,800 mg of Vitamin C. 
Fruit: Fruits are round to oblate, cherry-like but with 3 lobes. They are bright red (rarely yellow-orange) with thin skin, easily bruised. The pulp is juicy, acid to sub-acid occasionally nearly sweet, with a delicate flavor and apple notes. The fruit is very high in Vitamin C, up to 4,000 mg per 100 g fresh weight, but typically around 1,500 mg C. Green fruits have twice the Vitamin C level of mature fruits. Fruits develop to maturity in less than 25 days. Seeds typically three with fluted wings, forming a triangle. Many aspects of seed viability have not been studied. for more information.

Very beneifictial in areas of cold, flu, lung disorders, skin, and more.  You can find it in tea bags at you local Health food store or start to grow your own, beautiful Schrub.

Have a Healthy and Blessed Day.
