What is Açaí?
Pronounced ah-saw-EE, the purple-fleshed acai fruit has a long history of use in South America, but is just now gaining popularity worldwide because of new scientific research supporting its health benefits, particularly its antioxidant properties. Besides being touted by the famous Dr. Nicholas Perricone in his book on health and aging, The Perricone Promise, the fruit has also been discussed on Oprah, NBC's Today Show, and on Steve O'Brien's CBS-FM New York radio show.
This health-promoting fruit is highly valued in trade along the border between Colombia and Brazil, where it has a long history of use: it can be made into a drink or added to other foods, such as breads and seafood dishes. Acai is now a very popular fruit in South America, and it has made its way into hair care products and trendy ice creams, but its potential health benefits are giving it a new kind of renown around the globe.
What does Açaí do?
The acai berry is very unique because it is packed with so many nutrients. It has loads of amino acids, which is unheard of in fruits and vegetables in North America. It has the protein content of an egg, the essential fatty acids of olive oil and is rich in the A and B vitamins. Ingesting it has incredible health benefits. Even if you are healthy you will probably notice positive effects as you introduce a more balanced nutrition to your body, including increased energy .*
The acai berry contains the same antioxidant phytonutrients as blueberries, anthocyanins, except in far greater amounts (up to 30 times the amount found in red grapes and 5 times more powerful than ginko biloba!). If you believe that the French Paradox is caused by Anthocyanins, as most nutritional scientists do, then this is a very important acai benefit to consider. Dr. Nicholas Perricone, in his book The Perricone Promise, calls the acai berry the most perfect food on the planet. It rates #1 on his list of recommendations of the top ten ingredients to look and feel younger, enjoy revitalized health, and decelerate the aging process.
