Acai Berry: Learn about all the nutritional benefits of the acai berry and other super fruits.
The acai berry has gotten a lot of attention in recent years. It has been a nutritional hit in large Brazilian cities since the late 1980s, and in the Amazon jungle for thousands of years! Nutritionists claim that the acai berry is the highest rated antioxidant containing fruit by the ORAC scale. The ORAC scale is a standardized test for laboratory determination of the ability of a food to inhibit oxidation by free radicals- a mecahnism identified by nutritionists as harmful to the body.
Acai is available in various forms for your consumption: freeze dried powder (the most potent on a gram basis), juice and juice mixtures, and fruit preperations such as the acai bowl. The acai bowl is the classic Brazilian way to eat acai.
Freeze dried powder is best consumed in capsules.
Remember, nutrition should not be a hassle. Eating and preparing food is a pert of our lives, and should be enjoyable. At Acai-Berry TV, we encourage the enjoyable eating of acai in the form of acai bowls and smoothies as a fun and nutritious activity. We will be offering acai smoothies in the near future.
