Berry's Body Benefits

Potential benefits science tells us we gain from consuming açaí juice daily


Of the dozens of benefits of the açaí berry found in studies and research, compiled on the new Super-Açaí Package, here are some highlights of benefits that science is now identifying packed into this tiny berry from the Amazon.
Complete Nutrition
- The açaí berry is the only known food that contains every nutrient to sustain life.  From a protein profile similar to an egg; to a profile of healthy fatty acids greater than olive oil or avocado oil; to every essential mineral and vitamin; to high omegas, similar to salmon; to the highest antioxidant content of any fruit, vegetable or nut - açaí is a powerhouse nutrient-dense food delivering what the body needs.  As The London Times reported, "Açaí... with nutritional content that makes other fruits blush with inadequacy."
Increases energy and endurance
- One of the açaí berry's most noted features is its natural energy-giving power.  Among the nutrients responsible for this are açaí's high concentration of natural lipids.  As Dr. Nicolas Perricone stated in his bestselling book, The Perricone Promise and on the Oprah Show, "The [açaí] berry is one of the most nutritious and powerful foods in the world... nature's perfect energy fruit."  Matt Lauer, reporting from the Amazon, in Brazil, on NBC's Today Show, reported, "The açaí  holds a unique power and is believed to give anyone who drinks it a burst of energy."
Antioxidant protection - Antioxidants provide protection and help restore damage from one of our bodies' most prominent and damaging enemies - free radicals.  In The Antioxidant Miracle, Lester Packer, PhD, states, "Scientists now believe that free radicals are causal factors in nearly every known disease, from heart disease to arthritis to cancer and cataracts.  In fact, free radicals are a major culprit in the again process itself."  Açaí, according to USDA data, has the highest antioxidant activity of any food ever tested - approximately ten times higher than the next closest!  Alexander G. Schauss, PhD, FACN, recognized as the world's foremost expert on açaí, recently summed up the awe that açaí has science in when he stated, "This açaí is unlike any fruit, vegetable or nut that has been seen before.  Because you can not just explain its profound antioxidant activity by what we understand today."
Better rest and recuperation
- Nutrients in açaí, such as B vitamins, aid in reducing stress, are vital to the production of neurotransmitters, like serotonin and dopamine, that help our brain cells communicate. and also help with better quality sleep and rejuvenation.
Natural anti-inflammatory
- Among numerous compounds found in the açaí berry, like beta-sitosterol and essential fatty acids, are great natural anti-inflammatory nutrients.  These EFAs are also involved in the transport of fueling nutrients into and out of our cells.
Improved focus and mental clarity
- The açaí berry's extremely high concentration of omega-3 healthy fats are key in improving mental acuity and function.


Strengthens the immune system - Açaí's unique properties can boost the immune system in several ways.  The International Journal of Sports Medicine reported that açaí's beta-sitosterol prevents immune suppression and modulates lymphocyte activity.  Açaí's wide antioxidant spectrum helps prevent free-radical damage to the immune system.  The berry's antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties can reduce the frequency of infectious diseases.  Açaí's powerful antioxidants even help prevent free radical damage to our DNA, lowering the threat of carcinogens and mutagens in our body.  This amazing berry also helps strengthen cell membranes, further protecting against pathogens at the cellular level.

Anti-aging - Açaí is getting a lot of attention for its strong anti-aging properties.  Its phytosterols help reduce the erosion of the skin's protective coating.  These phystoserols, and its unusually high concentration of anthocyanins help defend against premature wrinkles.  Even more important in combating aging is the fact that açaí has the highest ORAC value of any fruit.  ORAC, a measure of antioxidant activity, has also been called "anti-aging points", as they indicate how effectively a food's antioxidants protect against the chain reaction process of free radical damage - the aging process that is essentially our body 'rusting' from the inside out.  Açaí is #1 in Dr. Oz's Anti-Aging Checklist, as promoted on the Oprah Show.

Heart health and cholesterol lowering - Research shows açaí can have many benefits for heart health.  It contains polyphenols, key to heart protection.  It contains cyanidin-3-glucoside, an anthocyanin that May help the body in the production of nitric oxide, which allows blood vessels walls to be flexible - reducing the stress on the heart, increasing blood flow and reducing the risk of vessel blockage.  Açaí is rich in essential fatty acids which have been shown to reduce the LDL (bad cholesterol).  There are plant sterols in açaí, which have been shown to have an lowering effect on blood pressure.  Diabetics have found a pleasant surprise with  açaí's low glycemic level could help improve glucose and lipid levels.  And the high anthrocyanin level (up to thirty times higher than red grapes) help protect our blood vessels.

Many more benefits are detailed in the journal articles, research, clinical studies and more - all contained in the Super-Açaí Package CD-ROMs and the continual online updates provided with that package.  Suffice to say that science and consumers both continue to be amazed by what is being discovered and experienced by this amazing little berry from the Amazon rainforest.

As was stated on The Rachael Ray Show, in the feature  segment  titled  'Our  Favorite  Super Drink',

"It's probably the healthiest drink you can get... This is like Oprah Winfrey's new super genius smart food of all smart foods."
"It apparently has more antioxidants than another other food known to man... All the people in the know are drinking it.  So I say we all drink it!"
