The acai (pronounced ah-sigh-EE) is an incredible berry that has an impressive nutritional composition. Acai is reddish-purple in color and has a tangy flavor. It is small and round and comes from acai palm trees native to the rainforests of South America. There, the locals extract the juice from the fruit by soaking it in water, pressing it and sieving.1
Known as the “beauty berry,” the acai is deep purple pigment is high in anthocyanins, a powerful class of phytonutrients that function as antioxidants. Antioxidants are important because they protect the body from free radicals and play a part in the fight against aging.
Acai for the heart
Acai has the added benefits of the essential fatty acids omega-3 and omega-6. These are required for proper structure and function of every cell in the body. They may benefit heart health and play a crucial role in brain function, growth and development. Omega-3 may be beneficial for the heart and omega-6 (linoleic acid) and omega-9 (oleic acid) may help maintain blood cholesterol levels already within normal range. *
Acai for the skin
Acai has a greater antioxidant content than any of the berries that typically are contained in the American diet, including raspberries, strawberries, cranberries, blueberries and blackberries. Antioxidants play a huge role in the body’s defense against the aging process by blocking free radical damage to our skin and other tissues. It’s believed that ingesting antioxidants is just as important, if not more so, than applying them topically to the skin itself.*
