What is Acai Berry ?
For several hundreds years, the acai (pronounced “ah-sigh-ee”) berry was known only to those who live inside the Amazon rain forest. Researchers think that compounds in plants and trees in the rain forests may have the solutions to treat our most dreaded diseases. When the rain forests vanish, those remedies naturally vanish.
Fortunately, people in the rain forests found the miracles in acai berry long time ago and have been using the acai berry to maintain good health and increase the energy for many years.
The acai berries are grown and found on top of palm trees. Local farmers at the rain forest harvest acai berry and create fruit pulp out of it. If they freeze acai berry promptly when they are still fresh, most of nutrition in acai berry can be kept in the pulp even while being transported overseas. The acai berry is best-known for their rich purplish color and an ample source of numerous crucial antioxidant vitamins.

| Main Benefits of Acai Berry|
1. Good For Heart/Cardiovascular System
2. Lower Cholesterol Levels.
3. Decelerate The Aging Process
The acai berry contains lots of protein, dietary fiber and omega-6/omega-9 fatty acids. Researches have shown that one benefit of acai berry is that acai berry has a defensive effect on the heart and cardiovascular system. Researchers believe that the omega-6 and omega-9 fatty acids in the acai berry may lower cholesterol levels.
Researchers also believe that another benefit of the acai berry is that acai berry can decelerate the aging. Because acai berry have high levels of anthocyanins and the strong antioxidant vitamin in them.
Red wine, which has known to have health benefits, also contains anthocyanins. Acai berry may contain even higher concentrations of anthocyanins than wine. By having acai berry instead of wine, you will have no health risks associated with alcohol.
“…good for the heart and cardiovascular system…may
slow down the aging…”
Another study showed another benefit of acai berry. The study has shown the acai berry’s activity against cancer cells due to high level of antioxidant and nutritional components in pulp and juice.
Grapes and blueberries are also known as healthy fruits. Actually, the acai berry has much more antioxidant vitamins than grapes (ten times more) and blueberries (two times more).
For a long time, the acai berry has not been available to people outside the rainforests. As the acai berry became more popular, acai berry started to be more available to us.
The acai berry is really one of the most remedial fruit, and a desirable add-on to your daily diet.
