Acai (pronounced Ah-sigh-ee) is the newest nutritional secret to be revealed to the modernized world. Harvested in the Amazon Rain Forest, from palm trees, the Acai berry has been used for centuries by indigenous tribes.
Recently, scientists discovered that the very dark purple pigments in Acai berries contain anthocyanidins, antioxidants that contribute to its very high ORAC (oxygen-radical absorbance capacity) value. ORAC is a new measurement of antioxidant potential.
For years, it was believed that blueberries had the highest ORAC value. We now know that Acai berries have twice the ORAC value of blueberries. Therefore, Acai can be considered the Super Berry for Good Health!
