WHAT IS ACAI?
Acai berries, also known as Euterpe Oleracea grow on the Acai palm trees in Central and South America and have been consumed for hundreds of years by indigenous people from these areas. They are touted for their high potency in antioxidants, even more so than that of the similar berry, blueberries. They are also great sources of essential fats and a host of additional micronutrients.
Because they are a berry, there is a critical period of ripeness, which is the main reason that the harvesting, packaging and transporting of the berries is such a rapid process. These berries are popular in many modern dishes today, due to both their newfound health potential and delicious taste. They have.
The Acai berries can be eaten in a variety of dishes, the most popular of which include smoothies, juices, yoghurt and the famous Acai bowl. They are also consumed in powder and tablet form. This can enable one to consume a more concentrated source of the nutrients from Acai.

POTENTIAL BENEFITS OF ACAI BERRY
Antioxidants – This is the most common benefit shared by all of our plant-food supplements, a pattern that extends to our Acai powder. Several studies have touted the ability of regular supplementation of the superfood berry on blood antioxidant levels. The superfood berries are packed with healthful compounds known as anthocyanins (which give it the purple color) that are known to mitigate the vascular damage caused by unhealthy behaviors such as smoking, alcohol consumption, eating processed foods and over-exercising (1). They even have higher levels of these than blueberries, which are famously regarded for their high antioxidant levels (2).
In another study, the immediate effects of consuming an Acai-infused smoothie among 23 overweight adults was examined. This resulted in improved vascular function and blood flow along with reduced free radical damage, both known as functions of antioxidants (3).

Cholesterol Levels – Not attributed to one specific nutrient, but more so the healthful combination of essential fats, fibre, anthocyanins and polyphenols, Acai berry has been shown to have potential benefits on cholesterol reduction. In some animal studies, LDL or “bad” cholesterol levels have been reduced through administration of Acai (4). However, animal studies have limited validity with regards to human benefits. In a small-scale pilot study, 10 overweight adults supplemented 100g of Acai berry twice daily for 28 days. This resulted in significant reductions in LDL and total cholesterol (5). This was a flawed study however, with a small sample, lack of control as well as funding issues.

SUMMARY
- Packed with several essential antioxidants
- May help to reduce cholesterol levels
- Reduces inflammation
- Delicious in smoothies and Acai bowls
