Have you ever bought juice or smoothers called acai berries? Or the superfood? The term superfood is used to describe a special category of food that provides much more than regular nutrients and Acai belongs to that category.
Acai is of the size of a grape and it’s considered one of the most nutritious fruits in the planet. It is harvested in the rainforests of Brazil, north of the country. The fruit tastes like a blend of berries and chocolate. Acai contains amino acids, healthy omega fats, dietary fiber and protein.
Acai became a very important ingredient on people’s diet because it is full of a special kind of antioxidant capable of fighting the free radicals within the body. Those radicals are responsible for the effects of aging and for degrading a person’s health over time. And once you integrate them in your diet the benefits could be great.
About 10 years ago, Acai began to be exported to the US, where companies developed several products, such as Acai berries juice, Acai smoothers, Acai superfood and all kinds of products containing Acai. They sell those products promising all the great benefits of Acai. People now buy even protein shakes made with Acai to lose weight or to tone their bodies.
Most people have already tried Acai and they are buying this “superfood idea”, meaning that by using products made with Acai, people can get more nutrients and be healthier. Do you believe that there really is a superfood? Have you ever tried Acai? And how would you describe your experience?
