Acai (ah-sigh-ee), a Brazilian Amazonian rain forest palm-berry is one of the highest antioxidant fruits in the world with an incredibly high ORAC value of over 70,000. (Most people consume less 1,000 ORAC units per day.)
High antioxidant foods help greatly to lower the risks of cancer, degeneration, and disease because they help to strengthen the immune system. Nearly 50% of the Acai berry is made up of essential fatty acids: healthy fats consisting of Omega 3,6 and 9. It is also extremely high in trace minerals, fiber and protein: 19 different amino acids have been identified in Acai.
Our Acai is 100% pure and of the highest quality as you will notice in it’s brilliant color! Acai is bright purple and has very little flavor, making it a wonderful addition to smoothies.
Acai has been used for thousands of years by the indigenous peoples of the Amazon Rain Forest as a remedy for many diseases. The tribes discovered long ago that eating acai berry regularly, resulted in less illness. This is because Acai helps to strengthened the immune system so they became sick less often and had more energy. It is considered to be one of the most nutrient dense foods on the planet. Some studies indicate that Acai promotes cardiovascular and gastrointestinal health and even helps destroy cancer cells.
Start with 1/2 teaspoon Acai and mix with fresh fruit juice or make a delicious smoothie.
