Nature's Energy Fruit
Studies have shown that this little berry is one of the most nutritious and powerful foods in the world! Acai (ah-sigh-ee) is the high-energy berry of a special Amazon palm tree. Harvested in the rainforests of Brazil, Acai tastes like a vibrant blend of berries and chocolate. Hidden within its royal purple pigment is the magic that makes it nature's perfect energy fruit. Acai is packed full of antioxidants, amino acids and essential fatty acids.
Acai contains a remarkable concentration of antioxidants that help combat premature aging, with 10 times more antioxidants than red grapes and 10 to 30 times the anthocyanins of red wine. A synergy of monounsaturated (healthy) fats, dietary fiber and phytosterols to help promote cardiovascular and digestive health. An almost perfect essential amino acid complex in conjunction with valuable trace minerals, vital to proper muscle contraction and regeneration.
The fatty acid content in Acai resembles that of olive oil, and is rich in monounsaturated oleic acid. Oleic acid is important for a number of reasons. It helps omega-3 fish oils penetrate the cell membrane; together they help make cell membranes more supple. By keeping the cell membrane supple, all hormones, neurotransmitter and insulin receptors function more efficiently. This is particularly important because high insulin levels create an inflammatory state, and we know, inflammation causes aging.
Acai Berry Super Food
The Acai "Super Berry" is harvested from the Brazilian rain-forest and has been used for thousands of years by the natives of Brazil. The Brazilian natives believe this berry to have amazing healing and nutritional properties. While there are many different berry and fruit juices on the market, this "Amazing Super-Nutrient" contains the most complete array of vitamins, minerals, and essential fatty acids. It contains Vitamin B1 (Thiamin), Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin), Vitamin B3 (Niacin), Vitamin C, Vitamin E (tocopherol), iron, potassium, phosphorus and calcium. It also contains the essential fatty acids Omega 6 and Omega 9, all the essential amino acids, and more protein than an average egg.
Yes, the nutritional content of Acai is truly amazing, but what really sets it apart from the berry/fruit products is the antioxidant content. Studies show that it has up to 33 times the antioxidant content as red wine grapes. When compared to wolfberry, noni and mangosteen juice products, it is 6X more powerful in terms of antioxidant content. No other berry or fruit product can come close to matching the nutritional and antioxidant content of this potent "Amazon Super Berry."
