Featured Ingredient: Açai Berries

Why didn’t you know about Açai 10 years ago? Unless you went to South America, it would have been very hard to get your hands on it. Ripe Açai berries are about the size of a large blueberry and composed of a sweet pulp protecting a seed in the middle with the pulp and fruit skin containing the most nutrition. The raw fruit is so delicate that the Açai berry needs to be consumed within 24 hours of picking. Recent innovations in the picking and freeze-drying processes have helped create a high-nutrient containing Açai powder, allowing the rest of the world to discover what Amazonian tribes have known for years.

Açai does more than sit pretty, it has been linked to phenomenal cancer-curing results!  A recent study publicshed in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry illuminated that the extracts of the Açai berry reduced the growth of leukemia cells in the lab by up to 86 percent by triggering a self-destruct response in the leukemia cells!

Furthermore, Açai offers a superdose of antioxidants- more than most fruits! To measure antioxidant concentration, a food's ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity) value can be measured with a higher score indicating a higher antioxidant content. Whereas red grapes tested at 11, blueberries at 32, and pomegranate at 105, the ORAC value of Açai scored remarkable 185!! The Acai berry's antioxidants, which color the berry blue-purple, can promote longevity by neutralizing free radicals, making Açai an amazing superfood to include in one's diet. Even Oprah would agree as she included it in Oprah Winfrey's Top 10 Superfoods list!                              

Another amazing aspect is Açai's ability to help the body regenerate and produce stem cells. A stem cell can become any cell that the body needs, including a connective tissue cell, a white blood cell, a muscle cell, or a nerve cell. By producing more stem cells, the human body can thrive and live even longer! Thank you Açai :)

For hundreds of years, locals have used the Açai berry to help with digestive issues and prevent everyday ailments. Everyone can benefit from Açai's healthy amounts of fiber, amino acids, oleic acid (which is a beautifying oil), and omega 6 and 9s. What else can Açai do for you? How about noting its reputation as the Viagra of the Amazon! Yes this berry from Brazil is known to increase sex drive, in addition to boosting energy, stamina and mental acuity.
