What Is It?
Nature's Superfoods brings you another super berry, the Acai (pronounced ah-sah-EE). Acai Berry is a deep purplish-blue berry that grows in bunches on acai palm trees. In the last decade, the popularity of Acai berries has grown tremendously, especially in the United States due to its high antioxidant (higher than blueberries and red wine), high fibre and healthy fat properties (omega fatty acids).
Native to the Amazon rainforests of South and Central America, the acai has been a staple of many Amazonian communities for generations. Traditional uses for the nutrient-dense Acai fruit included treatment for diarrhea, parasitic infections, hemorrhages, ulcers and various skin conditions.
