The Health Benefits of Antioxidant Rich Acai Berries
by Gibson Marshall

Interestingly enough, the acai palm tree grows indigenous only to the harshest, UV
intense zones of the rainforests of the Amazonian equator. Because of this, in order
to survive such a harsh, high sun climate, it has developed a thick bluish purple skin
to surround the large seed at the core of the fruit. The substance responsible for this
violet color are it's high concentration of Phenols and anthocyanins.

What does all this science mumbo jumbo mean? Basically It means that the acai
berry is an extremely healthy superfood. It can aid in lowering cholesterol levels, help
fight off the damaging oxidative stress that leads to most cancers, it boosts your
energy levels, it slows the effects of eye disease, it promotes hair and nail growth,
gives you healthy, radiant skin and best of all, it makes you feel great.

Unfortunately, since this is a highly perishable fruit, it is usually freeze dried within a
half an hour after it's harvest. Because of this processing, even the purest acai berry
products retain only about fifty percent of it's potency from the original pulp. This
makes it very important when you are considering purchasing a good supplement, to
make certain that in order to reap the full benefits of this amazing new discovery
from Brazil, that you get only the highest quality, certified tablets and capsules
available.

According to a recent ORAC essay
(Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity)
which is a standard measure of
antioxidant concentration, the acai
berry has one of the highest values in
the world for any known food
substance. A value of 185, compared
to other antioxidant-rich fruits such
as grapes, blueberries and
pomegranate.

It is high in Omega-3 and Omega-6
fatty acids, as well as
monounsaturated oleic acid, which is
well know as a main ingredient in
beauty products, oils and creams.
