This high-energy berry from a special Amazon palm tree is harvested in the rainforests of Brazil and has an impressive nutritional profile. Acai is packed full of antioxidants, amino acids, fibre and essential fatty acids. When you start dealing with this level of nutrients you find that remarkable things can happen! For years the Acai Berry was unknown to anyone but the tribes that lived in the deep rainforests of Brazil, its medicinal, health and weight loss uses limited to just a few hundred people. Not anymore!
Acai only grows in the Amazon Rainforest and is very perishable. So, unless you live in the Amazon - you will not be able to find fresh Acai berry at your local store or fruit market. However, the good news is that Acai can be turned into a stable powder which has all the health benefits of the fresh Acai berry. To turn the Acai Berry into a powder, Abeeco use a process called Freeze Drying. There are cheaper and quicker ways to make Acai powder, however the best way to make Acai powder is to freeze dry it. Only the freeze dried process ensures all the nutrients of the Acai berry are retained.
We already know that antioxidants are great at combating the damage that the sun does to our skin and also other effects of aging. Antioxidants are also great at keeping your skin looking younger and combating free radicals, which are a main cause of aging, as they damage the cells of the skin. Free radicals (also caused by such things as alcohol, exercise and barbecued food) are not only responsible for the effects of aging but they are now linked to a long list of diseases.
Acai is one of the highest antioxidant fruits in the world. Acai has 10 times the antioxidant level of grapes and twice that of blueberries. Acai has 10 to 30 times the Anthocyanins of red wine. The ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) score for 100 grams of freeze dried Acai powder is over 50,000. An almost unbelievable number when you consider most of the population consumes less than 1,000 ORAC units a day.
Acai berries are also full of flavinoids, which are anti-inflammatory and great for reducing wrinkles and even for improving acne. These berries are also a good source of essential fatty acids, and these help the body to renew cells and produce more of them. This regeneration of the cells is, of course, useful for anti-aging.
Both Oprah Winfrey and Brad Pitt have publicly touted the benefits they reaped from ingesting acai berries. On the Oprah Winfrey Show the famous Dr Oz said "acai is a powerful antioxidant" - "All foods with dark colours have some of these really protecting antioxidants in them. Blueberries lead the charge, acai have twice the antioxidant content as a blueberry". While Dermatologist Dr Perricone calls acai "one of the most nutritious and powerful foods in the world".
Acai Berry Benefits and Weight Loss
Firstly, the Acai Berry isn't a miracle weight loss solution that will cause you to lose 10 kgs in one week. However, the Acai Berry has been medically and scientifically proven to contain components that aid weight loss:
Fibre: The Acai Berry contains generous amounts of fibre which promotes a healthy digestive system and helps cleanse your system of fatty foods. In addition, high fibre foods help you to feel fuller faster.
Amino acids: The Acai Berry is rich in amino acids - required by your muscles to function properly and grow from exercise. The more muscle you have the more calories you will burn.
Omega fatty acids: These are used by the liver to "kick-start" the metabolism. In addition, many human and animal studies over the last 10 years have indicated that Omega fatty acids may help to aid fat loss by improving the blood flow to muscles during exercise.
Antioxidants: While living an unhealthy lifestyle your body begins to accumulate an excess of toxins which can prevent your body's natural systems from working the way they are supposed to. Acai Berry's are positively loaded with antioxidants, and once these antioxidants take hold of the free radicals that are mucking up your system the weight-loss can start to kick in.
In addition, some people are born with weak metabolisms but most people engender the condition. When you eat poorly, take on too much stress and don't sleep properly you weaken your metabolism which leads to excesssive weight. The rare vitamins and anitoxidants in the Acai Berry help to reset your body's metabolism and restore regular body functions.
Acai Berries are also thought to increase energy levels and stamina which will allow you to 'go harder' in your exercise regime.
