What is Acai?
Benefits of Acai
The dark purple color of acai comes from pigments called anthocyanins, which are powerful antioxidants that help defend the body against free radical damage. Diets rich in antioxidants can help slow the aging process and protect against disease. Acai contains omega 3, 6 and 9 essential fatty acids (EFAs) which are critical for brain function, cardiovascular health and the nervous system. An essential fatty acid is a substance that the body cannot make on its own and must be derived from foods. Acai is also a great source of B vitamins, amino acids, vitamins C and E, calcium and fiber. Plus, it’s low on the glycemic index scale (i.e., low in sugar).
