Acai Berry

How Will Your Health Improve With The Acai Berry?

Unless you've been living in a cave, you know that Acai (ah-sigh-EE) is considered the "new" super food to improve your health. Even Oprah is excited about it.

Of course, it's only "new" to the "civilized" world. Natives of the Amazon Rainforest have been using it for generations and it is reported to make up 42% of their diet.

And, guess what?

They don't get sick!

That's right. Acai is a major contributor to their amazing health.

The Acai fruit berry is now broadly used in energy juices, ice cream, and certain energy bars with granola. And we all know how popular granola bars and cereal are with anyone concerned about improving their health.

But that's not all.

Acai also boasts 10 times the antioxidant benefits of grapes and twice that of blueberries! It is very effective in such health areas as:

Antioxidants

Antibacterial

Anti-inflammatory

Cardiovascular System



Remember cholesterol?

The good kind, the bad kind, what a royal pain it is to figure out which foods to eat to control it so you stay healthy?

Well, the Acai berry fruit is also extremely rich in Antocianine, an antioxidation substance which assists in combating free radicals and cholesterol.

Acai is also one of the richest foods in iron and is rich in fiber. That makes it highly recommended for people suffering problems with their digestive organs.

So, how else does the Acai berry and its juice improve health?

It supports a healthy immune system

It increases your energy, libido, and stamina

It improves your mental focus and helps to clear your mind

It improves your sleep

It improves your digestion

It promotes healthy skin, hair, and nails



In fact, Acai can help so many different health problems, it's no wonder that it's called a "super" food.

For example, Acai helps with Arthritis and Fibromyalgia.

How?

Well, for one thing, the action of the antioxidants and micronutrients in the Acai berry help to heal cell membranes. This improves cell communication and metabolism, which leads to better joint health.

In addition, because the cells in connective tissues are better equipped to detoxify with the benefits of the Acai berry, the pain of fibromyalgia is reduced.

Considering how prevalent these two health problems are, it's easy to see why the Acai berry is becoming so popular.

Acai also helps with High Blood Pressure, Heart Disease, and Strokes by improving the Nitric Oxide Synthas (NOS) pathway of inflammation, making the arteries less inflamed and oxidized.

Given the rapid cellular deterioration associated with Diabetes, anything that helps to counteract the affects of aging or heart disease may be helpful to a diabetic.

Acai can even help with Depression because its micronutrients improve detoxification pathways, eliminating xenobiotics that have been associated with depression and poor brain function. In fact, the high content of omega oils, vitamin B, and amino acids in the Acai berry help produce better neurotransmitters, improving brain cell communication and reducing the chances of mental dysfunction.

Let's consider some of the things that your food should contain to improve your health.

The Acai berry contains more proteins than an average egg. Experts say that 7.59% of the weight of the Acai pulp is from amino acids and that 19 different amino acids have been identified in Acai (amino acids are the building blocks of protein).

Acai provides a significantly broader spectrum of antioxidants than such well-respected foods as blueberries, grapes, and even oranges. Acai contains antioxidants that destroyed cultured human cancer cells in a recent University of Florida study.

The Acai berry is very rich in healthy unsaturated fats such as Omega-3, Omega-6, and Omega-9.

Vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, C, and E are all present in Acai. In fact, Acai berries contain as much Vitamin C as Blueberries and has over 1000 IU of Vitamin A for every 100 grams of Acai.

In addition, Potassium, Calcium, Magnesium, Copper, and Zinc are also found in Acai.
