What are the benefits of Acai?
Once processed and powdered, the taste of Acai berries is often described as a fruity red wine flavour with chocolate overtones. Within the nutritional pulp and skin, Acai berries are packed with antioxidants, amino acids, fibre, essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals, making it a near-perfect energising fruit.
The popularity of Acai is primarily due to its very high concentration of antioxidants. Briefly, antioxidants are molecules that prevent the oxidation of other molecules. Oxidation produces free radicals, damaging the cells and glands within our bodies, making us more prone to disease and ageing. Since our bodies are exposed to various toxins and produce trillions of free radicals, it is essential to take steps to reduce the effect of free radicals in the body. Having a diet rich in antioxidants is the first step and introducing Acai into your regime is another possible way of preventing free radical damage.
Acai has been recognised as one of the world’s highest ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity) foods. ORAC is a measurement of how well antioxidants can neutralise free radicals. The higher the value, the better the body utilises it to fight free radicals. Acai has more than double the antioxidants of blueberries and nearly ten times that of grapes.
The antioxidants in Acai berry, anthocyanins, are excellent for heart health. Heart disease is increasingly becoming a problem worldwide, and finding natural ways to keep your cardiovascular system healthy is an excellent option. Additionally, anthocyanins are also good at preventing the oxidation of cholesterol. When circulating cholesterol, whether you have high or low levels, gets oxidised, it sticks to the walls of arteries causing their narrowing. This build-up of plaque eventually leads to high blood pressure, which is, of course, dangerous.
- The fibre found in Acai berry skin and pulp can aid digestion. Fibre can help prevent or relieve constipation and may help support a healthy cardiovascular system.
- Acai is naturally high in essential fatty acids having a fatty acid profile similar to olive oil. The link between essential fatty acids, heart health, and a healthy nervous system is well documented.
- Acai berries contain amino acids which help promote muscle performance, energy production, endurance and strength.
- Acai berries contain as much Vitamin C as blueberries and are also a source of Vitamins A, B1, B2, B3 and E. It is also a source of calcium, magnesium, zinc and copper.
With such an excellent nutritional profile, it is not difficult to understand why Acai berries can benefit your health and may help slow the ageing process.
