In the skin, high amounts of vitamin C are found in the dermis and epidermis, which are normally transported from the bloodstream. Oral supplementation with vitamin C has been shown to increase vitamin C levels in the skin.
Vitamin C regulates the synthesis of the protein collagen, which is responsible for prevent of damage and wrinkling of the skin. Higher intakes of vitamin C may also decrease dry skin. The antioxidant activity of vitamin C also protects the skin from UV induced damage caused by free radicals. Vitamin C also regulates cell signalling in skin cells and therefore increases the cell survival rate following UV exposure. Additionally, eating a diet rich in vitamin C has been shown to reduce the size and number of skin tumors induced by chronic UV exposure.
Acerola is a fruit found in Central America and into the northern part of South America. It is one of the best natural sources of vitamin C.
Aside from vitamin C, acerola contains other similarly functional ingredients, such as carotenoids, gamma-amino butyric acid, and polyphenols.
Studies show that acerola supplementation reduces low-grade inflammation and decreases obesity-related defects in the lipolytic processes. Studies show that acerola food supplementation with ripe or industrial acerola juice led to a partial reversal of the diet-induced DNA damage in the blood, kidney, liver and bone marrow. Furthermore, acerola juice may help to reduce oxidative stress and may decrease genotoxicity under obesogenic conditions.
Camu-camu is a native fruit of the Amazon region, found in Brazil. Just like acerola, it is very high in vitamin C. In comparison to oranges, camu-camu provides 30 times more vitamin C.
Data from research shows that camu-camu has powerful anti-oxidative and anti-inflammatory properties. A 12 week long animal study showed that animals that received the pulp of camu-camu reduced their weights of the fat in white adipose tissues, glucose, total cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL-c and insulin blood levels, therefore suggesting that camu-camu may be used as a functional food ingredient to control chronic diseases liked to obesity.
