Perfect Acai 1 months supply


Perfect Acai 1 months supply

Açaí contains a high level of anthocyanins, which protects food from harmful free radicals that develop as a result of UV light exposure and metabolic processes. It is 10 times richer than red wine in anthocyanins, the substances thought to be responsible for France's low rate of heart disease.

Açaí berries are also particularly rich in omega fats, giving a healthy dose of unsaturated fats including Omega-3, Omega-6, and Omega-9.

Omega 3 - Large population-based studies have suggested that a diet rich in omega-3 fats can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease (BBC - 2006).
Omega 6 can help the bloating and pain associated with PMS. It also maintains healthy skin, hair and nails and generally helps to bring about hormonal and emotional balance.

Omega 3 and Omega 6 interact with each other so the balance between them is crucial for good health. Together they affect the production of hormonal type messengers called eicosanoids, which has an impact on inflammation in the body and all functions at a cellular level. Omega 9 also has many preventative qualities as its main component, Oleic acid, helps to reduce the risk of arteriosclerosis, cardiovascular disease and stroke.

The Açaí berry has a high fibre content. For every 100 grams of Açaí berries, you get nearly 45 grams of fibre. Fibre is a key component to any healthy eating plan and or diet, also known in language terms as “roughage” it is responsible for general overall health, without fibre in your diet you may end up with poor digestion, stomach problems, and other ailments.

Açaí berries have a high content of amino acids and protein. The Açaí berry contains 19 different amino acids – which help with the growth, repair, and maintenance of body tissues. As your body can only supply 11 of these, the rest have to come from your diet.

The Açaí berry also contains vitamins B1, B2, B3, C and E, supplying just as much vitamin C as another superfood – blueberries. Açaí berries are also one of the few fruits to boast both vitamins C and E, a crucial combination for protecting the skin against sun and pollution damage.

Açaí also contains essential minerals, specifically potassium, calcium, copper, zinc and magnesium.

Our Açaí is unique as it is freeze dried on site within hours of harvest. It is the only Açaí currently available that is freeze dried at the harvest site. The main reason for freeze drying the Açaí is to retain as many of the nutrients as possible. The faster that the freeze drying is done after the harvest the better as all fruit and vegetables begin to lose their goodness as soon as they are harvested. Whilst some companies freeze dry their Açaí, we are the only company to do this in the amazon jungle.

What would you rather eat? A fruit that was picked and frozen within hours or one that was boxed up and flown thousands of miles on a freight aircraft along with all kinds of other produce before being freeze dried?

Processing the Açaí at source and within hours helps to maintain the extemely high levels of ORAC contained withing Açaí
