Benefits: Brazilian energy food that helps you look and age better. Helps boost energy and lowers cholesterol. Billed as the new wheat grass for health nuts.
How it works: Full of phyto-nutrients, which are said to slow down the aging process, aid in weight loss and can even act as a natural Viagra.
About the acai berry
Long before the Portuguese colonized Brazil, the oily purple berry of the acai palm tree was a staple of native Amazon people. Today, acai juice is a global "super food. But rising demand has jacked up the price in Belem, the epicenter of the acai trade. The city's 1.3 million residents consume an estimated 200,000 liters of acai each day, making it more popular than milk.
A few years ago, a liter of acai juice cost 52 cents. Today it's $2.60. In an area where monthly income often is less than $200, that price puts it out of reach of many.
Even in Brazil, acai wasn't known much beyond Belem until the early 1990s. Because the fruit's juice spoils after about 24 hours, it couldn't be shipped outside the region.
But then acai producers figured out a way to freeze the pulp, allowing it to be sent to Brazil's populous south. Because freezing robs acai of much of its subtle flavor, producers spiked it with guarana syrup (derived from another Amazon berry, this one with a punch akin to caffeine). Today, the blend is a staple at juice bars in Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo.
"Acai is an addiction," says Miguel Fierrio, who has been buying and selling it for four decades. "If someone can't eat acai, they complain there's an empty space in their stomach, even if they've just ate a full meal."
Acai Berry Supreme Supplements have more than 10 times the antioxidant capacity of a similar amount of red wine and more than twice that of blueberries. It has a berry taste with chocolate overtones. It has zero cholesterol and only 4 percent fat.
Manufacturers of the acai product say they provide jobs for people along the Amazon River while also being careful not to disturb the ecological balance of the area. No clear-cutting or destructive logging has been observed.
Acai berry supplements are safe with no negative side effects reported, which means Acai Berry Supreme Supplements are worth a try. Keep in mind most physicians agree there is no one "super food" to make you healthy. Combine a regimen of exercise, healthy diet with the Acai Berry Supplements for best results.
