Overview
 
General
 
Being touted as the number one superfood, Abeeco's Freeze Dried Acai Berry provides a high level of nutritional benefit and is perfect for anyone looking for a healthy body and natural weight loss.

This high-energy berry from a special Amazon palm tree is harvested in the rainforests of Brazil and has an impressive nutritional profile.  Acai Berry is packed full of antioxidants, amino acids, fibre and essential fatty acids.  When you start dealing with this level of nutrients you find that remarkable things can happen!  For years the Acai Berry was unknown to anyone but the tribes that lived in the deep rainforests of Brazil, its medicinal, health and weight loss uses limited to just a few hundred people.  Not anymore!

Acai Berry only grows in the Amazon Rainforest and is very perishable. So, unless you live in the Amazon - you will not be able to find fresh Acai Berry at your local store or fruit market.  However, the good news is that Acai can be turned into a stable powder which has all the health benefits of the fresh Acai Berry.   To turn the Acai Berry into a powder, Abeeco use a process called Freeze Drying.  There are cheaper and quicker ways to make Acai powder, however the best way to make Acai powder is to freeze dry it.  Only the freeze dried process ensures all the nutrients of the Acai Berry are retained.

Acai Berry, Anti-aging & Skin Health

We already know that antioxidants are great at combating the damage that the sun does to our skin and also other effects of aging.  Antioxidants are also great at keeping your skin looking younger and combating free radicals, which are a main cause of aging, as they damage the cells of the skin.  Free radicals (also caused by such things as alcohol, exercise and barbecued food) are not only responsible for the effects of aging but they are now linked to a long list of diseases.

Acai Berry is one of the highest antioxidant fruits in the world, demonstrating the ability to attract and neutralize free radicals before they can cause cellular damage.  Acai Berry has 10 times the antioxidant level of grapes and twice that of blueberries.  Acai Berry has 10 to 30 times the Anthocyanins of red wine.  The ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) score for 100 grams of freeze dried Acai Berry powder is over 50,000.  An almost unbelievable number when you consider most of the population consumes less than 1,000 ORAC units a day.

The results of a study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry shows that people who supplemented with acai berry increase the antioxidant capacity of their blood threefold.  Supplementing with Acai provides a significant shield to our genetic foundation as well as the protein structures that we rely on for disease free health and slow aging.

Acai Berries are also full of flavinoids, which are anti-inflammatory and great for reducing wrinkles, and they are rich in Amino Acids which are required for skin elasticity and texture.  In addition, these berries are also a good source of essential fatty acids, and these help the body to renew cells and produce more of them. This regeneration of the cells is, of course, useful for anti-aging.

Both Oprah Winfrey and Brad Pitt have publicly touted the benefits they reaped from ingesting Acai Berries.  On the Oprah Winfrey Show the famous Dr Oz said "acai is a powerful antioxidant" - "All foods with dark colours have some of these really protecting antioxidants in them.  Blueberries lead the charge, acai have twice the antioxidant content as a blueberry".  While Dermatologist Dr Perricone calls acai "one of the most nutritious and powerful foods in the world".
 
 
Acai Berries may boost brain function - New Research:
 
August 2010 - Scientists presenting at the National Meeting of the American Chemical Society in Boston this month say they have found evidence that compounds in berries such as the Acai Berry may slow down natural aging processes in the brain.  They say that these compounds, act as a "housekeeper" to recycle toxic proteins linked to age-related mental decline and memory loss.

Acai Berry & Weight Loss

Firstly, the Acai Berry isn't a miracle weight loss solution that will cause you to lose 10kgs in one week.  However, the Acai Berry has been medically and scientifically proven to contain components that aid weight loss:

Fibre: The Acai Berry contains generous amounts of fibre which promotes a healthy digestive system and helps cleanse your system of fatty foods.  In addition, high fibre foods help you to feel fuller faster.

Amino acids: The Acai Berry is rich in amino acids (19 identified) - amino acids are the building blocks of protein and are required by your muscles to function properly and grow from exercise.  The more muscle you have the more calories you will burn. 

Omega fatty acids: Omega 3 & 6 fatty acids help stabilise and strengthen cell membranes, allowing for faster, more efficient transport of body fat out of cell storage. In addition, one essential fatty acid - Linolenic acid (found in the Acai Berry) - has been found to stimulate the activity of the body’s internal fat-burning mechanism.

In addition, some people are born with weak metabolisms but most people engender the condition.  When you eat poorly, take on too much stress and don't sleep properly you weaken your metabolism which leads to excessive weight.  The rare vitamins and anitoxidants in the Acai Berry help to reset your body's metabolism and restore regular body functions.

The Acai Berry is also thought to increase energy levels and stamina which will allow you to 'go harder' in your exercise regime.
