Health Benefits of Acai:
Research continues as to all the various benefits of consuming the açai berry, one of its most valuable properties is its high level of antioxidants, specifically anthocyanin. These antioxidants inhibit the oxidation of other molecules in the cell, preventing a process which could eventually cause damage or death to the cell. It is this reaction that is helpful for cell regeneration and healthy tissue growth as well as protecting your skin and organs against premature aging. Though many fruits have these antioxidants, the ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbency Capacity) level for the açai berry is over 3500, far exceeding the average of any other fruits including apple or banana.
The açai berry also contains two very important ingredients in maintaining a healthy diet: fiber and protein. The dietary fiber found in the açai berry not only keeps your digestive system running at its optimal pace, but is also used as a cleanser and detoxifier. One of the most surprising facts about the açai berry is its high source of protein. This small berry is a better source of protein than an egg, without any of the harmful cholesterol. Both these high amounts of protein, and the antioxidants that are contained in the açai berry, help your body’s immune system tremendously. Furthermore, this protein combines with its host of Omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids to improve the look of a person’s hair, skin and nails.
Possibly the most desired health benefit of the Açai berry plant is its ability to promote energy and stamina. Açai produces energy due to its high nutritional value as well as its ability to boost a person’s blood circulation. Additionally, the açai berry has shown that it is able to reduce the negative effects of a high-fat diet thereby possibly assisting in weight loss and generally maintaining a healthy weight. Coupled with the ability to contribute to the body’s energy, açai berry is also beneficial to the mind. By removing harmful toxins that collect around the brain, the açai is known to greatly improve mental capacity as well as improving memory loss and other diseases related to the brain.
