The Acai Berry

Initially known as the superfood with anti-aging and weight-loss properties, the Acai trend started in the United State where an influx of influential people came to love. Soon, other countries started to follow and has now captured worldwide attention. Native to the Amazon rainforests, this slender palm (50-100 feet high) produces these; small, round, black-purple nutritious berries (1in. in circumference) that is considered to have one of the highest ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity) levels among any other in the world.

Apart from its glamourous reputation, Acai berries consists of; Antioxidants, Iron, Anthocyanin, Calcium, Vitamin A & C, Fibre, and Monounsaturated Fats.
