Acai Berry: The new antiaging miracle

Tagged:  

It's a well-established fact that antioxidants are important for
skin health and antiaging because of their ability to scavenge
free radicals. Beneficial antioxidants include vitamins A, C, and
E, trace minerals like selenium and zinc, and polyphenols like
antbocyanins (found in the skin of red grapes). Unfortunately,
it's a challenge to find a healthy balance of tbese nutrients on
a daily basis.

Wbat if we could find all of tbese antioxidants in one food?

Now we can and it comes in the form of a berry known as the acai.
While it's been around for thousands of years, the acai berry
was only introduced to Nortb America and Europe in tbe 1990s.
Amazonian tribes used the herry for medicinal purposes. Tbe berry
comes from a palm tree found in Brazil. The fruit grows in clusters
of ahout 700 to 900 berries and is similar in appearance, cotor, and
size to tbat of red grapes. Tbe seed accounts for 80 percent of the
fruit; the otber 20 percent makes up the pulp, which is the main
ingredient used in juices and teas.

From an antioxidant perspective, the acai herry is twice as
potent as tbe pomegranate and two or three times more potent
than the blueberry. It's 10 times more potent than red wine in
facilitating an aging slowdown and reducing inflammation. The
oxygen-radical absorbance capacity-—a method of measuring anti-
oxidant capacity of different foods—rates the acai berry as bigher
than any other edible berry.
