With over 2,000 different types of fruits and plants used for medicinal and health improving purposes, the rain forest of Brazil offers its people many natural remedies. The Açai Berry is an amazing fruit that is found in that region and is known to hold more anti-oxidants than any food ever reported. It promotes healthy aging, it’s great for dieting, and it just might be the healthiest food in the world.
The Açai is the berry of a palm tree that is known to Brazilians as “The Tree Of Life” (pronounced ah-sigh-EE) - a dark purple berry rich in nutrients that sprouts atop the millions of palm trees lining the riverbanks in the Brazilian jungle. Rich in antioxidants and amino acids, açaí is thought to be one of the most nutritional fruits of the Amazon basin. Açai doesn’t stop there because it is a source of essential amino acids and trace minerals that are necessary to proper muscle function. In terms of fatty acids the açai is good as olive oil. Oleic acid is a nice substance because it helps another nice substance, Omega 3, to get into your cells. Açai berry is rich in oleic acid. Antioxidants, as all foodies know, help to slow down the body’s aging process. Red grapes are similarly blessed with antioxidants but only to about one tenth of the level in acai. The acai also has a life giving mix of mono unsaturated fats, those are the good ones, fiber and phytosterols all of which give your heart and digestion a really good shot in the arm.
The berry is loaded with nutrients and all types of Vitamins and minerals such as, Vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, C, E, potassium, calcium, magnesium, copper and zinc. It`s also a great source of protein. The acai berry is a super food due to the extremely high ORAC value! ORAC means Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity. Basically, ORAC is a way of measuring the ability of an Anti-Oxidant (Such as fruits and Veggies like açai) to stabilize the “free radical” oxygen cells in your body. The USDA recommends at least 3,000-5,000 ORAC Units daily. The average person is consuming less than 1,000 a day.
