Acai has been featured on many world famous TV networks and Talk back shows, and is generating huge excitment in the scientific world bexcause of its extraordinary health benifits, including anti cancer properties.
The Acai Berry is the berry from the Açaí palm or aqai (Euterpe oleracea), an extremely common, slender, yet very tall palm and grows 15 to 25 m in height, which grows in various parts of Central and South America. It’s packed full of everything that is good for you including vitamins, minerals, and cancer fighting anti-oxidants that bring much power and results to your body.
The specific nutritional composition of acai berries helps to protect the body from free radicals and inflammation, the two main causes of degenerative diseases and ageing. The antioxidant in acai helps prevent ageing of the body and the skin by eliminating free radicals and removing wrinkles. Free radicals are unstable molecules that are missing an electron. Our bodies continue to produce free radicals as byproducts of normal metabolic processes and in response to environmental elements, such as radiation and pollution. Left alone these free radicals can take electrons away from healthy cells and damage DNA, increasing the risk of heart disease, cancer and other degenerative diseases.
Acai is rich in antioxidants, fatty acids, fiber and other plant compounds that can increase your health, improve energy and help you lose weight. When your body is healthy and well-balanced, it will be easier to reach your perfect size, and this is why Acai has become one of the most popular supplements to assist with weight management. Acai is reputed to be extremely high on the ORAC scale and provides levels multiple times that of many anthocyanin-rich fruits and vegetables, such as cherries, cranberries and mulberries.
The berry is rich in Omega 3, Omega 6 and Omega 9 which are the fatty acids that thve been scientifically proven to fight cholesterol. These fatty acids are polyunsaturated essential fatty acids that decrease low density lipoproteins (LDL) in blood and increase the HDL or high density lipoprotein in blood. LDL is also known as the bad cholesterol while HDL is the good cholesterol which is needed by the body and is healthy as well. The LDL is actually the cholesterol which clots in the cardiovascular regions leading to myocardial infraction or a heart attack.
The ability to control oxygen free radicals is expressed through an ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) value. Using scientific analysis, the ORAC number is assessed by the measurement of antioxidant activity for any perticular substance. Higher ORAC numbers means that a substance has stronger antioxidant powers. Dr. Cao and Dr. Prior of the Human Nutrition Research Center on Ageing at Tufts University have established that their Recommended minimum 5000 ORAC Units Daily helps prevent certain age related diseases. This is equivilant to 1 dose of our Acai extract (2 capsules).
