The Acai Berry is a fruit that is native to the Amazon Rain Forest in Brazil. It has been harvested by Brazilians for hundreds of years as a food staple known primarily for their rejuvenating and detoxifying properties.
Pleasant tasting, this fruit has such high nutritional values that it joins a very selected few by being named a “Super Food“, which means that we should make it a consistent part of our eating routine in an effort to enjoy a healthier, balanced lifestyle.
Dr. Nicholas Perricone lists Acaii as one of his top 10 Super Foods at Oprah’s Web site. As a matter of fact, he lists it as the #1 Super Food in the World! The best benefits are gained from eating the fruit, but it is primarily marketed as a powder, drink or a supplement.
Acai Berry is said to help you lose weight by flushing your body of trapped waste, increase your metabolism, increase your energy levels, balance pH for efficient body function, and is even reported by some to increase their sexual performance! It is primarily being marketed as a weight loss supplement, but it has so many varying health benefits as the list above shows, that everyone can benefit from using it.
