Why acai is so great for you          

Acai is one of those foods that can only be described as a nutritional powerhouse, thought I’m not quite sure what a powerhouse is, and it sounds funny to describe a humble little berry that way. In any case, here’s why acai is so awesome. There’s a lot more to say, of course, but this should be enough to convince you of its powers:

  1. The dark purple color of Sunfood acai comes from pigments called anthocyanins, powerful antioxidants that help defend the body against free radical damage, and help combat premature aging, with 10 times more antioxidants than red grapes and 10 to 30 times the anthocyanins of red wine.
  2. Acai contains a synergy of monounsaturated (healthy) fats, dietary fiber and phytosterols to help promote cardiovascular and digestive health.
  3. Acai is high in protein, and contains an almost perfect essential amino acid complex in conjunction with valuable trace minerals, vital to proper muscle contraction and regeneration.
  4. Acai berry contains many polyphenolic anthocyanin compounds like resveratrol, cyanidin-3-galactoside, ferulic acid, delphinidin, petunidin as well as astringent pro-anthocyanidin tannins like epicatechin, protocatechuic acid and ellagic acid. Scientific studies suggest that these compounds act as anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer functions by virtue of their anti-free radical fighting actions. In addition, tannins are known to have anti-infective, anti-inflammatory and anti-hemorrhagic properties.
  5. Primary research studies suggest that ellagic acid in acai has anti-proliferative properties by virtue of its ability to directly inhibit DNA binding of certain carcinogens (nitrosamine toxins in the food).
  6. Acai berry is also rich in medium chain fatty acids like beautifying oleic acid (omega-9) and linoleic acid (omega-6). These compounds help reduce LDL-cholesterol level and raise good HDL-cholesterol levels in the body and thus help prevent heart disease. In addition, the essential fats help prevent skin dryness by maintaining adequate moisture in the skin.
  7. And it’s the most beautiful deep purple color you’ve ever seen. So be careful and don’t get it all over your shirt, unless your shirt is also deep purple.
