if sick, can bring you back to good health. Berries certainly fit the bill, and the trendy berry
of the moment with major anti-aging benefits is the acai berry.
You’ve probably noticed health food stores now pumping out more “acai bowls” than ever.

proanthocyanidins, protocatechuic acid, procyanidins and epicatechin – in addition to
vitamin C, vitamin A and dietary fiber. The acai berry is no exception.

indigenous to Brazil, are one of the planet's most remarkable and nutritious fruits.

anthocyanins, and catechins. These free radical quenchers contribute to the protection
of tissues from oxidative stress, a key element of healthy aging. The nutrients and free
radical scavengers in Acai also help support a healthy immune response and a proper
defense against biological stress. NOW uses only solvent-free, freeze-dried Acai Berries

Benefits of Acai Berries
Very High in Antioxidants
No doubt about it, there’s quite a long list of health benefits that are attributed to acai
berries. Most of the benefits you’ll get from eating acai berry is due to its extremely high
antioxidant content, which is why it’s said to have a high “ORAC score.”
ORAC stands for Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity; it’s a scale that measures the
antioxidant properties of foods. ORAC values are used to classify foods by how many
antioxidants they contain based on weight, and acai berry is very close to the top of the list.
Boosts Skin Health
Acai berry is useful for preventing early signs of aging and helping with skin regeneration.
For millenia people have used antioxidant-rich foods and herbal treatments, including acai,
both topically and internally to prevent skin degradation and keep skin resilient and healthy
Helps With Cognitive Functioning
Eating plenty of foods with antioxidants is a natural way to improve your focus and memory.
Inflammation and oxidative stress are two major underlying causes of cognitive problems,
including loss of memory, dementia and other age-related mental disorders. Through a
process of suppressing biological activity that degrades cellular integrity, acai pulp fractions
seem to have protective effects over brain cells, which could have implications for improved
cognitive and motor functions
Help Control Your Appetite & Boost Weight Loss
Some experts believe that acai berry has certain appetite-suppressing abilities thanks to how
it effects various hormones that control blood sugar levels and feelings of hunger, fullness and
satiety. It seems to help improve metabolic functions which helps the body work better absorbing
nutrients, breaking down foods, eliminating waste and regulating the release of insulin.
Stimulates Healthy Digestion
Acai verry has a good dose of fiber to offer, but it seems to improve digestion in other ways
beyond how most high-fiber foods do. Acai berry is considered a natural digestive cleanser,
helping the liver and kidneys to process and remove waste and toxins from the body.
Offers Protection Aginst Heart Disease & Diabetes
Although it’s known best for its antioxidants, acai is also considered an anti-inflammatory
food because it contains some monounsaturated fatty acids, in addition to dietary fiber
and phytosterols that all help promote cardiovascular health. Studies show that regularly
drinking acai juice has positive effects on blood lipid levels and can protect the heart.
Consumption of acai berry helps lower inflammation too, which is one of the root causes
of coronary heart disease and hormone-related problems, including type 2 diabetes.
