Acai (pronounced ah-sah-EE) is the berry of the Acai Palm tree which is harvested in the rainforests of Brazil. Studies have shown that this little berry is one of the most nutritious and powerful foods in the world!
The acai berry tastes like a blend of berries and chocolate and is packed with antioxidants, amino acids and essential fatty acids. With 10 times more antioxidants than red grapes, this remarkable source helps combat premature aging, and promotes cardiovascular and digestive health.
The berry’s growing popularity in North America has led to multiple brands of Acai berry supplements (alone or mixed with other fruit juices) offered in the market. Health claims on these products include weight loss, detoxifying, wrinkle-fighting, higher energy levels and superior levels of antioxidants.
