Top Wellness Professionals Speak Out
What today's top doctors and researchers are saying about
açaí.

 
 

"Studies have shown that this little berry is one of the most nutritious and powerful foods in the world... nature's perfect energy food."

Dr. Nicholas Perricone, M.D., FACN
Dr. Perricone named
açaí the #1 superfood in the world, topping his list of "Top Ten Superfoods For Age-Defying Beauty" on The Oprah Show and in his bestselling book, The Perricone Promise.

 

 

"Acai is a new fruit that comes from the rainforest, particularly in Brazil.  It is a very, very powerful antioxidant.  It has twice the antioxidant content of a blueberry.  So it's a wonderful alternative to carbonated beverages.  Now it's just sort of breaking through.

Dr. Mehemet Oz, M.D.
Known as "America's doctor" and frequent Oprah guest

(world's #1 researcher of a
çaí berry)

 
 

"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."

"The acai fruit has a very broad nutritional value to humans.  It has remarkable high antioxidant activity.  Based on new data on the antioxidant levels of American foods that was just published by the US government, our data shows that acai has significantly greater antioxidant activity on a gram-to-gram comparative basis than any other of the fruits or vegetables consumed by Americans.  Thus, a juice blend rich in acai fruit would help people meet their daily antioxidant requirements from food.
Alexander G. Schauss, PhD, FACN
The leading researcher on the acai berry, Director of Natural Medicinal Products Research at AIBMR Life Sciences, winner of the prestigious Linus Pauling Award, member of the American Society of Nutrition and the Society for Food Science and Technology, a Fellow of the American College of Nutrition (FACN), an emeritus member of the New York Academy of Sciences, former Chairman of the Food Policy Council of the National Council for Public Health Policy, an honorary founding member of the British Society of Nutritional Medicine and Emeritus Executive Director of the American Preventive Medical Association, authored 14 books, co-authored four books, and has been published in many peer-reviewed medical journals. He has also appeared on major radio and television talk shows, including The Phil Donahue Show, The Oprah Winfrey Show, The Maury Povich Show, That’s Incredible, To Tell the Truth and The CBS Evening News.


 
 

"There are five chief diseases that are plaguing Americans today.  These diseases include: fibromyalgia, depression, arthritis, diabetes and high blood pressure together with heart diseases and strokes.  Through my research, I found  the  acai  fruit May be

beneficial in combating a number of diseases."

"The low content of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory micronutrients in our processed diets is aggravated by toxins in the environment, which cause free radicals to disperse throughout the body.  Free radicals, byproducts of daily living are neutralized by good nutrients - antioxidants.  A lack of antioxidants can cause our cell membranes to 'TOIL' - become Toxic, Oxidized, Inflamed and Lacking energy.  Our terrain is then fertile ground for disease to root.  The action of the antioxidants and micronutrients in the acai berry help to heal TOILing cell membranes, thus improving our cell communication and metabolism, which leads to better tissue health by better detoxification of inflammatory toxins"
Dr. Hugo Rodier, M.D.


 

"... That is why there is no other food on the planet that can do this."

"... It's the COMBINATION [in the
açaí juice blend] that seems to be working"

Dr. Lou Niles, N.D.
Certified Macrobiotic Wellness Counselor and end-stage cancer specialist

“Acai berries are already considered one of the richest fruit sources of antioxidants.  This study was an important step toward learning what people May gain from using beverages, dietary supplements or other products made with the berries.”

Dr. Stephen Talcott, PhD

 

 

“The free radicals cause cell damage, so it's basically the antioxidant quality in this juice that is doing the benefit."

Dr. Michael Callaway, M.D.


 

 

"Some of the features became real apparent to me, how this product could be working.  One of them is that it has a lot of anti-inflammatory properties and antioxidant  properties.  and  those

actually do help with inflammation.  Being in a liquid form was also helping the people actually benefit because it became much more bioavailable than any of the capsule or powder forms that we were using before."

"It is super high in antioxidants.  It promotes heart health.  And they even say it is mutagenic, meaning everybody is getting DNA damage everyday because of radiation and oxidative  stress,  and  there  is  a  lot of

evidence that the berry can really help prevent that damage which can eventually prevent cancer.

"Medically, the antioxidants found in the juice are astounding, even though acai research studies are in the early stages."

"This is my [personal] experience with acai: it offers an increase in energy level, a more fluid gastrointestinal system and an increase in general awareness, which as a surgeon has been most helpful.  I can only say positive words about [acai juice blend].  There has been a profound effect on both my wife and me during our time using the acai juice."
Dr. Robert Berman, M.D.   -  surgeon


 

"The acai is often referred to as 'natures perfect food' because it's unique, its almost an anomaly, that it has the protein profile of an egg, fatty acid  ratio  of  olive  oil,   low  glycemic

index, exceptional concentration of phytonutrients and antioxidants, a generous amount of trace minerals, loaded with vitamins and an excellent source of fiber."

"Its claim to fame is that it has tremendous antioxidant abilities.  The body gets damaged through the chemicals and things you ingest and it causes damage through superoxides that cause damage to the DNA."

The DNA damage can lead to premature aging, cancer, heart disease - all of that.  This compound actually has a tremendous amount of antioxidants.

"Acai is naturally low in sugar, and the flavor is described as a mixture of red wine and chocolate, so what more would you want from a fruit?"

Dr. Susanne Talcott, PhD

 

 

I've had patients complain about arthritis pain who haven't had results with any other products - specifically medications.  These individuals had been battling with such issues for years.  Once they started using acai,

they each experienced relief in their joints and less pain in their bodies.

Acai can help decrease the chances of cardio-vascular disease, which begins with inflammation.  The anthocyanin level in acai can help alleviate heart disease symptoms.  We're seeing a decrease in hypertension and better oxygen supply in the body that helps to clear out arteries.  With this [acai blend] you're actually empowering the individual to be able to reverse the cardiovascular condition by making smart choices.  Doing something as simple as adding acai juice to their diet over time May help individuals reverse this issue.  Many of my patients have noticed a reduction in hypertension and lower blood pressure.
Dr. Katherine Crafton, D.C.

"...seemed instantly to be an elegant and delicious alternative to big antioxidant pills.  The strong, scientific data profile allowed me to proceed with much confidence.  I have seen overpowering positive results through-

out all age groups with the use of acai juice.  Some of these benefits include:

-         A gradual reduction in soreness and joint pain

-       Additional flexible throughout the body

-        A sense of relaxation, peace and well being

-       Ease of use and a satisfying taste, unlike pills or other elixirs

-     Research and lab tests confirming a decline of inflammation

I am impressed by the overwhelming positive outcomes I am seeing with patients in my practice that use acai.  The sound scientific backing, the personal testimonies of thousands and the delicious taste make acai a favored choice as non-invasive therapy.

Dr. Felix Carrillo, M.D.    internist

investigated the science and I can't say I've ever found a product on the market that can do, for my patients, what I've witnessed being done [with this]."

and potassium, and essential amino acids. Vitamin C helps rejuvenate and revitalize your skin...

I have found that the acai fruit is full of nutrients, including beta-carotene, fiber, potassium, essential fatty acids, amino acids and phytosterols.  In fact, the acai fruit underwent the ORAC test... and revealed a value of 1027.  This is far higher than any fruits or vegetables have obtained, and a score this high suggests many nutritional benefits from the acai fruit.
