Pure Acai Berry 1,000 mg, often called Nature's Perfect Food, is an affordable plant extract supplement and a cheap powerful antioxidant.
Contra Indicators: None known
The fruit of the Acai (pronounced aa-sigh-ee) Palm (Euterpe Oleracea) is considered to be nature's perfect food, and there is no doubt that Acai Berries contain a wealth of goodness, including Vitamins, Minerals, Antioxidants, EFAs (Essential Fatty Acids), Flavonoids, Protein, Fibre, and possibly some compounds that help with weight loss.
Acai has 33 times the ORAC (a measure of the antioxidant properties) value of red grapes. It also contains Vitamins B1, B2, B3, C and E, plus Iron, Phosphorus, Calcium and Potassium, as well as the EFAs Omega 9 and Omega 6.
Freeze dried products retain higher concentrations of nutrients than other processing methods because as the water content is removed, a rich pulp is made which has a higher nutrient concentration than the raw fruit itself. Tests show that while 100 grams of fresh Acai fruit has an ORAC score of 5,500, the same weight of freeze-dried Acai has an ORAC score of 34,000.So when looking for any Acai product, make sure you choose freeze dried as it guarantees the the full range of nutritional benefits of the Acai.
Add to this the high Protein content, the essential Amino Acids and the Antioxidants (Anthocyanins, Proanthocyanidins and Resveratrol), and we know we have something very special.
Its wealth of Omega 6 and 9 makes it beneficial for maintaining healthy cholesterol levels.
