Acai berrys

Updated on May 26, 2009

 Açaí palms are fast-growing, and are cultivated for both their fruits and for their superior hearts of palm. Global demand for the fruit has expanded rapidly in recent years, and açaí is now cultivated for that purpose primarily.

The main reason that the demand for the acai berry has exploded is because of its health and weight loss benifits.These benifits havent been proven but are widely regarded as being true.

The fruit is small and round and black-purple in colour,its pulp is used in all sorts of ways from being put into smoothies and other beverages but also in tablet form and several different juices.It has been claimed that the acai berry gives improved digestion along with improved energy levels as well as being good for your skin and for detoxing.It is most commonly marketed as a very good dietary supplement.

The new wonder

The new superfood

Your body needs a variety of vitamins and minerals as well as antioxidants to keep it healthy. High concentrations of antioxidants are also linked with slowing down the aging process and increasing longevity.The Acai berry naturally provides vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, C and E, as well as the minerals potassium, magnesium, copper, calcium, and zinc.

The Acai berry has a high Vitamin C content, actually matching the blueberry - another recognised superfood. This product can be found in its various forms from most good health food retailers.
