The Power of Acai

fullsizerender-1

Acai has been known to be the secret super berry of the Amazon. Here’s why:

  1. Better sex
  2. Healthier Heart
  3. Clears skin
  4. Helps digestion
  5. Boots immunity

 

Better Sex

Acai has been known to increase energy, stamina and blood circulation. You can guess where this is leading, but what a great cocktail for a fun night out.

Good for the heart

As mentioned above, acai berries have been known to stimulate blood circulation, prevent blood clots and relax blood vessels similar to that of red wine. This is because acai is high in anthocyanins which lower cholesterol and contain plant sterols which stimulate the cardiovascular system.

Healthier Skin 

Taken internally, the berries provide the skin with a natural glow, but if applied externally, acai’s antioxidant properties have contributed to healing skin conditions such as acne and discoloration. No wonder why so many skin care products contain acai oil!

Aids Digestion

Acai has high levels of natural fiber and it relieves both constipation and diarrhea by making bowel movements more regular and adding more bulk to the stool.

Immune Booster and Cancer Preventer

Acai has been known to boost the immune system by protecting the cellular system against the invasion of free radicals. A study also found that acai contains polyphenolic compounds which slow the growth of cancer by 50-80% and stop the process of carcinogenesis on a molecular level.

 

**Only buy organic acai. The benefits will be greater as it will contain higher levels of antioxidants and fewer chemicals.**
