Acai berry is a wonderful fruit from the Amazonian forest, often dubbed as the #1 superfood for its high content of anti-oxidant and nutrition.Among the antioxidants, Acai berry is known to be a rich source of compounds called anthocyanins and Resveraterol. Anthocyanins are responsible for the red, purple and blue hues in many fruits, vegetables and flowers. Along with Resveraterol, Anthocyanin is also the similar compound that gives red wine its health benefits. With Acai Berry, these antioxidants are found at even higher concentration - that is at more than 30 times of that found in red wine! This makes Acai Berry a superior radical detoxifying fruit without the health risks associated with alcohol.
These powerful antioxidants found in Acai berry do not only protect cells from oxidative damage caused by free radicals, but could also be linked to a reduced risk of inflammation and blood clotting, as well as protection from obesity and diabetes. Researches into the potential benefits of these antioxidants are still continuing.
Antioxidants aren't the only substances found in Acai berry. Acai berry also contains a synergy of monounsaturated fats (that is the healthy fat needed by our our body), dietary fiber and phytosterols; substances that are associated in promoting cardiovascular and digestive health. The fatty acid content in Acai berry resembles that of olive oil, and is rich in monounsaturated oleic acid that helps omega-3 to penetrate cell membrane.
