Live Superfoods Acai Powder Our Acai Powder is 100% natural and comes direct from the Amazonian rainforest in Brazil. The Acai (pronounced ah-sigh-ee) berry is one of the most antioxidant rich superfoods available and was made famous as one of Oprah's top 10 superfoods. Remarkable concentration of antioxidants that help combat premature aging, with 10 times more antioxidants than red grapes and 10 to 30 times the anthocyanins of red wine. A synergy of monounsaturated (healthy) fats, dietary fiber and phytosterols to help promote cardiovascular and digestive health. An almost perfect essential amino acid complex in conjunction with valuable trace minerals, vital to proper muscle contraction and regeneration. Many of our customers mix Acai Powder with water or juice, but because our Acai Powder doesn't contain any additives or carriers, it doesn't dissolve well in water. So, for best results we suggest mixing it with a smoothie or yogurt. Acai Powder - Amazonian Antioxidant The vast flood plains of the Amazon rainforest hold many secrets, but in the last few years one traditional Amazonian tribal secret has made its way to the Western world. Found in the lush flood plains of the Amazon in Brazil, the fruit of the Acai Palm tree is a dark purple berry about the size of a blueberry or a grape. This little fruit, with a pleasant yet unique taste, is one of the world's most nutritious foods as it is packed with antioxidants, amino acids and essential fatty acids. The properties of the acai berry were kept secret for thousands of years; mainly due to the fact that the raw fruit needs to be consumed within 24 hours of picking. Recent innovations in the picking and freeze-drying processes have allowed the rest of the world to discover what Amazonian tribes have known for years. The acai berry has natural antioxidant properties that may help promote general well-being, boosts energy, stamina and mental acuity levels and may have a positive effect on cholesterol, the digestive system and even sex drive. The acai berry (Euterpe Oleracea) gets most of its antioxidant properties from the high concentration of anthocyanins; in fact up to 30 times more anthocyanins compared to red wine make acai powder one of the most antioxidant rich superfoods available. The acai fruit pulp is rich in fiber, protein and contains essential fatty acids, all of which combine to help promote healthy digestive and cardiovascular systems. Like many of our antioxidant-rich Superfood Powders our Acai Powder is freeze-dried within 24 hours of the fruit being picked; a process that removes moisture from the fruit at a very low heat. This allows the powder to retain the nutritional benefits of the raw fruit. Research into the specific health benefits of Acai Powder is ongoing, but studies indicate that it may: Promote a healthy immune system Promote a healthy digestive system Have a positive effect on cholesterol levels Help protect your skin and organs against premature aging Improve energy, vitality and mental acuity Improve your sex drive Help cell regeneration and healthy tissue growth, neutralizing free radicals that can lead to cancer.
