Acai - World's #1 Super Food
The Acai Palm is a member of Euterpe genus (Euterpe oleracea) growing in swamps and floodplains of South and Central America. The palms are tall (about 15 meters) and their pinnate leaves can be up to 3 meters long.
For countless centuries, the people of the Amazon have revered this unique fruit for its health-promoting properties and prized it as a source of health and vitality. The remarkable health benefits of açai are continually being documented by modern science. And because of its unparalleled antioxidant levels and extraordinary nutrient content, açai is now widely regarded as one of the world's top superfoods.
Acai became popular due to great abilities and nutrients of the acai fruit, also called Acai Berry. Acai berry is a round, small, purple drupe sizing almost 1 inch diameter. It looks like a grape. The fruits grow in panicles (almost 700 - 900 fruits). Acai Berries are harvested as a food due to their amazing weight loss, cholesterol lowering and antioxidant abilities, as mentioned before. The Caboclo tribe (they live in Amazon) describe acai berry as an important part of their diet.
