Found deep within the rich, fertile and exceptionally biodiverse Amazon rainforest, Acai palm trees are commonly found growing 25m high along floodplains and swamps. They are surrounded by the largest collection of living animal and plant species in the world, and have long been a dietary staple of indigenous, forest-dwelling people. With time, these delicious fruits have made their way into popular Brazilian culture in many well-known dishes, including ‘acai in the bowl’, Açaí na tigela. These wonderful berries, which have a rich flavour, both earthy-chocolatey and reminesient of red wine, have gained renown as one of Brazil’s most fashionable wellbeing products.
Named ‘fruit that cries’ for their intensely hydrating nature, these little berries are packed with astonishing levels of health-giving compounds. Very high levels of anthocyanins are responsible not only for their rare dark purple colour, but also their intensely protective, repairative qualities. Oxidative stress, which can contribute to premature ageing and other effects by damaging our body’s cells, is an inescapable consequence of physical exertion and a busy lifestyle. Anthocyanins are known to help deal with this, aspiring to protect cells from oxidation. Even in comparison to popularly consumed fruit like raspberries and blackberries, acai are particularly high in these powerful compounds. Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) measures exactly oxidatively protective foodstuffs are; you can take a look at the chart below to see just how powerful Acai berries are in comparison to other fruits.
Taking the capsules and acai powder will give you even more wonderful nutrients. Vitamins, like B, C and E, that are naturally found in Acai berries are known to help reduce tiredness and fatigue, support energy-yielding metabolism and the immune system and protect cells from oxidative stress. Forming 70% of Acai berries innate and healthy fats, Omegas 3, 6 and 9 have calming, restorative effects. High fiber quantities help to sustain a healthy digestive system. Calcium, iron and potassium minerals are known to aid your muscles, blood pressure, bones and brains. Last but by no means least, over 7% of Acai berry pulp is formed of proteins’ building blocks, amino acids. With so many incredible nutrients inherently found within them, can we be surprised that they’re so beloved by the Amazon’s indigenous people?

A Super Pack for Acai Lovers
There’s no denying Acai’s wonderful qualities - but most of us can’t jet off to Brazil to enjoy them fresh, and transporting them across oceans can degenerate their nutritional values! In the select products found in the Super Pack, their nutritional value is captured by the process of flash-freezing immediately after harvest and the moisture is extracted by vacuum, producing a powder that is then transferred to vegan-friendly capsule or sealed in that form for your enjoyment. In either way, you’re able to reap the rainforest’s rewards everyday, in a way that is easily incorporated into your personal routine.
Capsules - Acai Berry Extract, Capsule Shell (Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose), Bulking Agent (Rice Flour), Anti-Caking Agent (Magnesium Stearate), Flow Agent (Silicon Dioxide).
Powder - Acai Berry Extract.
Enjoying Acai Powder & Capsules
This Acai Super Pack gives you the opportunity to enjoy Acai berries in two different forms. We suggest taking a balanced approach, substituting capsules and powder for each other on a day to day basis. Although both products have seperate recommended maximum doses, we would not advise taking the maximum of both, as your body is only capable of successfully digesting and utilising a certain amount.
When enjoying the acai powder, you should use about one teaspoon per serving, with up to three everyday. With Pure Acai capsules, we advise a maximum of two capsules daily, taken with a full glass of water before a meal. We recommend enjoying these supplements for at least three months, and, to get the best out of the Acai berries, investing in long-term use.
