Origins Of Acai Berry
Acai Berries are the fruit from the Acai Palm which is native to the Amazon region of South America. This exotic fruit gets its name from Portuguese adaptation of the Tupian word Ã¯waca'i meaning "the fruit that cries". The Acai Berry so unique because of its potent combination of antioxidants, amino acids, fibre, essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals that offer many benefits both internally and externally. However, most notably the Acai Berry boasts of over 16 phytonutrients and antioxidants - meaning it contains ten times as many antioxidants as grapes and twice as many antioxidants as blueberries! This antioxidant power has given Acai Berries a high Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) which reflects its effective defence against free radical damage.
