The Amazon rainforest is one of the world’s densest, most fertile environments, home to the largest collection of living plants and animal species in the world. This includes the Acai palm tree, commonly found growing 25m high amongst swamps and floodplains. Over time, these delicious, health-giving fruits have gone from being the nutrient-rich foodstuff of many forest-dwelling people to becoming a key ingredient in many popular dishes. All over Brazil, Acai berries, ranging in colour from red to the more common purple-black, are loved and enjoyed for their delicious flavour and health-giving properties. Recently, they’ve become one of Brazil’s most fashionably popular wellbeing products.
Acai’s Amazing Attributes
Acai berries pack quite a punch, filled as they are with superfood-levels of energising compounds. Anthocyanins found within these juicy fruits, named by tribespeople as ‘fruit that cries’ for their intense levels of hydration, are responsible not only for the berries’ rich purple-black colour but also their incredible protective qualities. Oxidative stress, the natural result of physical exertion and exercise, can have a degenerative effect on our entire body. But anthocyanins seek to help protect and repair our bodies from oxidation. Acai berries are particularly rich in them, twice as many as other anthocyanin-high fruit like blueberries. See the comparative Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) chart, for an idea of both how rich and absorbable they are.
But that’s not all these incredible fruits can offer you! The high vitamin content includes B and C, which are known to contribute to energy-yielding metabolism and a reduction in tiredness and fatigue. 70% of Acai berries fats are healthy, unsaturated Omegas 3, 6 and 9, with calming, repairative properties. They also have a strong fiber profile, about 14 grams out of every 100 of freeze dried Acai, aiding your body’s natural digestive process. Minerals such as iron, calcium and potassium help your cognitive functions, muscles, bones and blood pressure. Finally, 7.59% of the weight of the Acai pulp is from amino acids, the building blocks of protein. With so many incredible attributes, is it any wonder that the indigenous, forest-dwelling people of the Amazon love Acai berries so much?
