Acai Berry Powder comes straight from Acai Berries (pronounced ah-sigh-ee) harvested in the flood plains of South America. This nutritional powerhouse is one of the most antioxidant-rich foods in the world and has been used medicinally for thousands of years by native tribes in the Amazon rain forest. It is a great source of monounsaturated (healthy) fats, dietary fiber, and phytosterols.
The acai berry is no bigger than a grape or blueberry, yet it packs more than 10 times the antioxidants of red grapes and 10-30 times the anthoxanthins of red wine. For thousands of years, native tribes of the Amazon rain forest have known the healing properties of the acai berry, and now these secrets are available to the rest of the world.
The Acai Berry’s blend of monounsaturated fats, dietary fiber, and protein makes it a true Superfood. Its natural antioxidant properties promote general well being, boost stamina, and increase mental alertness. Mixing our Acai Berry Powder into your morning yogurt or smoothie is a great way to start your day.
