More About Acai
Acai – South American Super Fruit
Native to the rainforests of Brazil, the acai palm tree bears delicious berries that are widely considered one of the planet’s most remarkable and nutritious fruits. These nutrient-rich berries have vitamin C, several minerals, and a host of free radical-scavenging phytonutrients, including rutin, anthocyanins, ellagic acid, catechins, and more. These free radical scavengers help protect the tissues of our body from oxidative damage, a key factor in normal aging.
In addition to helping protect us from free radical damage, the nutrients in acai can also help support normal immune system function and a proper response to normal metabolic stress by promoting proper nitric oxide (NO) production. Normal production of nitric oxide is also a factor in normal cardiovascular function.
At NOW we’re big fans of acai and its super fruit cousins such as goji and noni. Super fruits have a remarkable nutrient profile and, taken together, the nutrients in acai complement one another and work to support overall health and well-being.
We offer four different acai products for your convenience:
- Acai Super Fruit – While acai berries are considered a tasty treat by many, their tart flavor isn’t for everyone. We created NOW® Acai Super Fruit for these individuals and included delicious pomegranate, raspberry, blueberry and apple juices for a tasty, health-promoting treat that’s hard to beat!
- Acai Concentrate – For individuals who love the taste of acai but don’t feel like taking pills or guzzling watered-down juice, NOW® Acai Liquid Concentrate is the way to go. Each tablespoon serving is equivalent to 35,000 mg of fresh acai.
- Acai 500 mg Veg Caps – Don’t like acai juice or concentrate? Not to worry, we also offer freeze-dried acai in both 500 mg vegetable capsules and certified organic powder forms.
Acai for Health
These days it’s almost impossible to avoid some sort of daily exposure to environmental pollutants, chemicals and other substances that can generate free radicals in our body. Even the simple act of breathing generates these harmful rogue molecules.
But you can help minimize their impact on your body and your health with quality free radical scavengers such as NOW® Acai products.
