Antioxidant and Anthocyanins Levels that beat wine hands down
Acai Berries are natures super food.
Acai berry juice is one of the highest antioxidant fruits in the world. Acai berry juice has 10 times the antioxidant level of grapes and over double that of blueberries. Acai has about 30 times on average the power of the Anthocyanins of red wine. It is a powerful antioxidant (antioxidants protect cell damage).
The Acai berry is very rich in healthy Omega fats typically loaded with Omega 3, Omega 6 and Omega 9 essential fatty acids, so think of fish oil without the smelly breath.
Ultra Powered Amino Acids and Protein sythesis all in one.
A large chunk of the weight of the Acai berry pulp is from amino acids. Amino acids are agents in protein synthesis. 19 different amino acids have been found in Acai. Since amino acids are the building blocks of protein, it is no surprise that you have over 8 grams of protein in a 100 gram serving of Acai, so it is essentially a super fruit for bodybuilders also.
Excellent source of Plant Sterols
Three plant sterols are contained in Acai – B-sitosterol, campesterol and sigmasterol. Photosterols have been shown to have numerous health benefits for maintaining healthy heart and digestive function.These phyto-chemicals are nesessary building blocks to maintain heart health also. Western diet is typically devoid of many of these essential elements.
Vitamins and Minerals
Vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, C and E are all present in Acai. Acai also contain as much Vitamin C as blueberries and has over 1000 IU of Vitamin A for every 100 grams of Acai. In addition, potassium, calcium, magnesium, copper and zinc are all found in Acai.
Great Source of Fiber
For a fruit, Acai has a strong fiber profile. There are about 14 grams of fiber in every 100 grams of freeze dried Acai powder.
