Polyphenols are plant compounds that are present in fruits, vegetables, and other plants, like cocoa. They are highly antioxidative but also offer many additional beneficial impacts in the body. The main polyphenols in acai berries include quercetin, orientin, and proanthocyanins, and many more.

Flavonoids

Flavonoids are a group of polyphenols or plant compounds that have many protective benefits in the body. They are not vitamins or minerals, think of them as additional components only in plant foods that may benefit overall health.

They were first discovered and were called “vitamin P” in the first half of the 1900s, as they reduced the Permeability of blood vessels and therefore resulted in less risk of bleeding, so overall better functioning veins and arteries. In this way, they are believed to be cardioprotective (heart)

Antioxidants - Immunity & overall health

Aside from the above-mentioned nutrients, acai berries also contain a range of other phenolics, that have antioxidant effects. Antioxidants are compounds in the body that scavenge or “quench” harmful molecules that circulate the body and cause damage to our tissues.

When these molecules, called free radicals, accumulate over a long period of time, they can cause illness and disease. Maintaining a balanced diet with plenty of fruit and vegetables can help to prevent the build-up of these molecules.

Our rich acai berry powder can help you reach these goals, providing a healthy dose of these antioxidants in just one teaspoon
