Acai is the fruit of a palm tree that grows in the rainforests of the amazon- a tree Brazilians call “the tree of life.” because acai fruit is perishable, in the past, its popularity stayed only in Brazil. However, improved processing of fresh fruit is making it possible to preserve more of the fruit’s beneficial attributes for use beyond the region. Since then, the news about acai has been steadily spreading, and the evidence of its nutritional and health benefits keeps piling up. Acai earned its reputation as the most effective super fruit/ wonder fruit the world has ever known.
Brazil acai with its antioxidant (ORAC), is an excellent source of polyphenol, phytosterol, vitamin e, omega 6 and 9, anthocyanin and proanthocyanin.
