You can’t just go out and buy acai berry juice. Acai berry is found primarily in the Brazilian rainforest. Although it has been used for centuries by locals for its legendary healing properties it wasn’t until recently that the rest of the world took notice. This occurred when Dr. Nicolas Perricone, when appearing on the Oprah Winfrey show, mentioned some of the amazing nutritional benefits that are contained within the humble acai berry and how it can be used as a solution for weight loss.

Since then, acai berry has been featured on ABC and CBS, and has been commercialised in a variety of different ways. Juices, purees, freeze dried, supplements… acai berry has become the #1 Superfood.

Why has it taken until now to discover it?

The problem lies in its cultivation. Within 24 hours of harvesting, acai berries begin to lose their potency taking with them their high concentrations of antioxidants, amino acids, omega fatty acids, fibers and vitamins.

In the past, if you’d wanted to buy acai berry juice you, you pretty much lived in/next to the Amazonian rainforest. It is only through modern technology and a technique called flash freezing that this nutrient dense fruit has been made accessible to the rest of the world.

So what does acai berry do?

Research into this exotic fruit has only been minimal to date – due to its harvesting complications – however studies performed by the University of Florida and Science Daily have offered some promising results. Through these initial studies, scientists have found that acai berry can have a positive effect on:

  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Anti-aging
  • Cancer
  • Immunity
  • Weight loss

Cardiovascular disease

Enriched in antioxidants, acai berry contains 10-30 times more phytonutrients and anthocyanins than grapes, helping you to improve your heart and your cholesterol levels.

By freeing your body from free radicals – which are known to destroy and damage cells – these antioxidants can protect your body from every day damage, as well as prevent Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, heart disease, cancers and diabetes.

Fatty Acids

Essential fatty acids are an essential part of ensuring the functionality of your body. Fortunately acai berry has got omega 3 and omega 6 in abundance.

Through these 2 essential fatty acids you can lower your bad cholesterol levels (LDL) whilst at the same time increase your good cholesterol levels (HDL). Plus as these acids pass through your digestive tract they can help pick up any toxins/excess foods that are building up and excrete them from your body.

Weight loss

Clinically there is no proof that consuming acai berries helps lose weight, though there are clinical trials currently investigating this. However, many people have confirmed that they have lost weight when adding Acai to their diet. How can this be explained? Combine acai berry’s fatty acids with its natural fibers, and they can help your body to process food more efficiently, burn more fat and ensure your metabolism stays at a fixed rate. More importantly through their capacity to induce natural appetite suppression (as they are rich in healthy fats), you will be able to reduce your meal portions and prevent excess fats from being stored. Because you eat less, as the acai in the diet makes your body feel satisfied, many people have naturally lost weight.

Quality acai berry products

To ensure you receive only the highest in quality acai berry, it is essential when searching for acai berry products to find one that is 100% pure (no extracts or extra ingredients) and that has been processed through flash freezing. Only then can you guarantee that you are receiving acai berry in its most potent form.

I’ve reviewed (and am constantly reviewing) a number of these products. One I’ve found that matches all these criteria is Pure Acai Berry (see product review page for this and other comparable products). It is easily the most potent acai berry product currently on the market. It is also 100% organic.
