ACAI BERRY - NUTRITION INFORMATION ENERGY, HEART HEALTH: The Acai berry has been reported to give you a high energy boost. It is also thought to have a significant impact on heart health and on the health of the cardiovascular system. In particular, the Acai berry contains a higher concentration of compounds known as anthocyanins.
These compounds are the ones thought to be responsible for giving red wine its widely reported health benefits. However, the Acai berry has 10 to 30 times more anthocyanins than red wine does. LOWERS CHOLESTEROL LEVELS: In addition to these anthocyanins, Acai berries are known to contain large amounts of proteins and fiber, as well as both Omega-6, which lowers cholesterol levels, and Omega-9 fatty acids, which lower LDL cholesterol levels and maintains natural HDL cholesterol levels. These omega fatty acids have been studied for years as a way to protect the heart from damage, strokes, and other common cardiovascular complications. Many people are looking for ways to capture the health benefits that have been associated with the consumption of red wine but without the calories and other negative consequences of red wine consumption.
The Acai berry may be able to provide these important health benefits. ANTI-AGING: Perhaps the most important health benefit of the Acai berry, however, is its strong impact on the aging process.
The Acai berry is generally acknowledged to be one of the top superfoods for anti-aging. The amino acids and vital trace minerals found in the Acai berry aid in proper muscle contraction and regeneration, thereby slowing damaging effects to the skin that cause signs of aging. The fatty acid found in the Acai berry is similar to that of olive oil and is high in monounsaturated oleic acid. The fatty acid combined with Omega 3 fish oils penetrates cell membranes and makes them suppler.
This allows for hormones, neurotransmitters and Insulin Receptors to operate more efficiently, which greatly reduces inflammation. Inflammation is one of the leading causes of aging. HIGH IN ANTIOXIDANTS, MAY DESTROY CANCER CELLS: The antioxidant benefits of the Acai berry, combined with the fatty acids it contains, make this one of the most important superfoods on the market. The Acai berry is thought to have an antioxidant content that is 10 times greater than that found in grapes, and twice as high as those found in blueberries.
The Acai berry is widely acknowledged to have the highest nutritional value of any fruit in the world, and this has earned the Acai berry the title of Superfood.

The Acai berry comes from a palm that has a long trunk up to 25m high with a group of branches at the top from which hangs ribbon-like leaves.Acai berries hang from these branches in clusters that look like groups of blueberries. Each Acai palm tree produces about 20 kg of fruit per year, and the wine produced by this fruit has become the most important local product, in terms of finance, after wood forest products. Belem in Brazil now employs over 30,000 people on a daily basis to keep up with its enormous demand. Acai is naturally full of energy, it has a vibrant taste of berries with a hint of chocolate, is rich in proteins, fiber, Vitamin E, minerals and essential Omega oils to help reduce the bad cholesterol in our blood and increase the good cholesterol. Unlike other berries and fruits, acai has high caloric values and fats. 100 g of berries provide about 80-250 calories depending up on the preparation and serving methods.
In fact, fresh acai berry has been the staple nutritious diet of native Amazonian for centuries. Acai berry contains many polyphenolic anthocyanin compounds like resveratrol, cyanidin-3-galactoside, ferulic acid, delphinidin, petunidin as well as astringent pro-anthocyanidin tannins like epicatechin, protocatechuic acid and ellagic acid. Primary research studies suggest that ellagic acid in acai has anti-proliferative properties by virtue of its ability to directly inhibit DNA binding of certain carcinogens (nitrosamine toxins in the food). Acai berry is also rich in medium chain fatty acids like oleic acid (omega-9) and linoleic acid (omega-6). These compounds help reduce LDL-cholesterol level and raise good HDL-cholesterol levels in the body and thus help cut down heart disease risk.
Additionally, the essential fats in acai help prevent skin dryness by maintaining adequate moisture in the skin. Acai pulp has good levels of dietary fiber. Adequate fiber in the diet helps clear cholesterol through the stools. ORAC value (oxygen radical absorbance capacity) of acai berry is thought to be at mid-level range for fruits, higher than that of oranges but less than pomegranate. USDA so far not validated exact ORAC value for acai.Acai berries contain a good amount of minerals like potassium, manganese, copper, iron, and magnesium. Potassium is an important component of cell and body fluids that helps controlling heart rate and blood pressure. Manganese is used by the body as a co-factor for the antioxidant enzyme, superoxide dismutase. Further, they are rich in B-complex vitamins and vitamin-K. Contain very good amounts of niacin, vitamin B-6 and riboflavin. These vitamins are function as co-factors and help body in the metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. Acai extracts have been used by Amazon basin tribes as the treatment remedy for diarrhea, parasitic infections, hemorrhages, and ulcer treatment.

Decoction obtained from the roots has been used in the treatment of menstrual pain, liver diseases, malaria in Peruvian culture.
