The acai fruit is now becoming very popular to many people long before I started this blog. Acai berry supplements are widely available and can be purchased from superstores or groceries all over the country.
Just to recap what was included in my previous posts:
This wonder fruit looks like any other berry; in fact it is similar to that of a blueberry with a different texture, as its skin is firm.
The most important part of the acai fruit is its pulp, as it contains the nutrients that give health benefits. During harvesting, the pulp is scrapped from the rind in order to get all the helpful nutrients and to avoid wasting them. The acai pulp can then be turned into a variety of acai products from dishes to juices and even to powder.
Many recipes can be found using the acai fruit as its main ingredient; it gives the dish a distinct berry flavor as well as a blend of rich chocolate.
The acai fruit is very high in many nutrients and contains a number vitamins and minerals.
It has phytochemicals and fibers which help boost energy and enhances metabolism.
This is the very reason why the acai fruit is believed to be capable of getting rid of unwanted fats. Its weigh loosing effect has given many people hope in finally loosing weight in a much safer and easier way.
The acai fruit is also a very good source of antioxidants. In fact, it is the only known fruit to contain the highest level of antioxidants. The antioxidants level of the acai fruit even surpasses the level contained in green tea and promegnate combined.
These antioxidants keep the body strong and healthy as it strengthens the immune system and combat harmful diseases as it eliminates toxins and free radicals in the body. Such toxins and free radicals are the main causes of diseases as it slowly destroys the cells of the body. By affecting the vital organs of the body, these toxins can lead eventually to organ malfunction and destruction. The antioxidants contained in acai fruit also helps revitalize the skin thereby slowing down the aging process.
With all these benefits, one is advised to take acai fruit in a regular basis. Taking acai berries in its fruit form is very difficult as it is only available in the Amazon rainforest. But there are other alternatives which would also yield the same health benefits as if taking the acai in its plain or fruit form. There are acai juices and supplements which are readily available in the market today.
