Derived from the Acai palm, native to South America, Acai berries are one of the most nutritious native fruits of the Amazon. Acai contains beneficial levels of vitamins B and C, key minerals, fibre, protein, Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) and phytonutrients (those found in plants). It is also abundant in potassium and rich in copper, and unusually high in manganese, all essential for life.
Acai berries contain significantly high levels of anthocyanins and are very rich in EFAs, with roughly 80% of its composition being essential fatty acids. EFAs help support cardiovascular health, joint health, skin health, brain health, maintaining healthy cholesterol levels, can help reduce inflammation, and can aid in fat loss.
Before consumption just add water to rehydrate or add directly to smoothies and juices. 1 teaspoon a day is enough to give you all the benefits of the Acai berry, but there are no known side effects to taking more.
