"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.

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
"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.

"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"

from a fruit?"
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
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.
