Acai Berry (acaiberry) - Information
The acai berry (pronounced “ah-sigh-ee”) is a small grape-sized berry that grows predominately in the Amazon Rainforest of Brazil. Natives of the region have harvested this berry as part of their diet for hundreds of years.
The acai berry is a revolutionary fruit that has been growing in the Amazon rain forest for centuries. Research suggests that the people of the Amazon Rainforest have made the acai berry about 40 to 42 percent of their diet, and subsequently they are incredibly healthy and are free of many of the harmful toxins that exist in our bodies in the western world. Some other benefits of the acai berry include 300 percent more antioxidants, which are used by your body to fight cancer cells, high quantities of vitamin A, vitamin B, vitamin C, iron, fiber and calcium, as well as other types of minerals, acids and more that benefit your body. Acai berry juice is said to have between 10 and 30 times more antioxidants than grapes, pomegranates, and even blueberries. Because of the extensive vitamins and other properties, the acai berry fruit is said to be one of the most nutritionally dense berries on the planet.
This recent surge of interest in the acai berry has been aided and stimulated by bestselling author and anti-aging expert Dr. Nicholas Perricone (MD) who has touted the acaiberry as the “Number one super food in the world” in his book “The Perricone Promise” and in appearances on TV shows like Oprah. The Brazilian wonder berry has featured on shows such as the Oprah Winfrey Show, the Rachel Ray Show, 60 Minutes and the Matt Laurer Show. Networks such as ABC, CNN, CNBC, MSNBC, and BBC have hailed the berry as a health super food phenomenon.
Calling the acaiberry “the number one super food in the world” might sound like a stretch, but this view is not unfounded. The little acai berry is packed with an amazing amount of free-radical fighting antioxidants and is considered to have the best overall nutritional value of any fruit on earth.
