The Acai berry (Euterpe oleracea – pronounced ah – sigh – ee) is a unique dark purple berry that grows high up in palm trees (Acai Palm) native to Central & South America, and is found predominantly in the Amazonian Rain Forest. Acai Berries have been traditionally consumed as a healthy “Whole-Food” source by the native peoples of Brazil and neighboring countries.
Some of its reported benefits are:
1. Aids in weight loss (debatable)
2. Helps with mental clarity
3. Gives you more energy
4. Allows for a good night’s sleep
5. Detoxifies the body
6. Improves digestion
7. Creates healthy, beautiful skin
8. Improves cardiovascular (heart) health
9. Strengthens the immune system
While the reported effects on weight loss are debatable due to the lack of scientific evidence, recent research has confirmed the high nutritional value of Acai fruit and uncovered its potent antioxidant benefits.
Analyses have shown that Acai is one of the world’s richest sources of anthocyanins, know to be powerful free radical scavengers. A growing body of evidence also suggests that anthocyanins may possess analgesic, neuroprotective and anti-inﬂammatory properties.
There are Acai Berry powders, Acai Berry juices and Acai Berry supplement extracts. As always, the available Acai products in Singapore tend to be extremely overpriced.
Why pay hundreds of dollars for Acai Berry products in Singapore when you can get organic, high quality versions for much less?
