Acai Berry Health Benefits

Acai berry is an inch-long, reddish-purple fruit which is native to Central and South America. This antioxidant-rich fruit has been heralded for centuries as a healing, immune-stimulating, energy-boosting fruit.

 

Known by nutritionists as a super-food, acai may help us not only lose weight, but maintain a healthy weight. Unlike other berries and fruits, acai has high caloric values and fats.

 

100 g of berries provide about 80-250 calories depending on the preparation and serving methods. In fact, fresh acai berry has been the staple nutritious diet of native Amazonian for centuries.

 

There is no solid research evidence suggesting the use of these berries will help lose weight.

 

Acai berries contain properties that may prevent the typical irritation associated with respiratory distress.

 

Acai berries are a good source of antioxidants, fiber and heart-healthy fats. But research on acai berries is limited, and claims about the health benefits of acai haven’t been proven.

 

This unique berry has an extraordinary amount of antioxidants that protect the tissues and cells of the body.

 

The antioxidants in acai berries have a profound effect at reducing the oxidative stress that foreign invading microorganisms and environmental toxins produce.

 

They also help the immune system to function at a higher level and increase their strength of attack against these opportunistic microbes.It is important to remember that acai does contain fructose sugar, as all fruits and berries do.

 

The berry has been a traditional staple food of Amazon basin tribes for centuries, but somehow recently gained recognition as so-called “super food” in the western world.

 

Acai berries contain a good amount of minerals like potassium, manganese, copper, iron, and magnesium.

 

Potassium is an important component of cell and body fluids that helps controlling heart rate and blood pressure. They are rich in B-complex vitamins and vitamin-K. Contain very good amounts of niacin, vitamin B-6 and riboflavin.
