What can an Acai Supplement do for you?

A new, popular fruit has made its way from the Amazon into the hands of doctors, health-conscious people, and outstanding athletes who incorporate this fruit into their everyday diet. The acai (ah-sigh-ee) berry, a small dark purple berry, is grown in the Amazon rain forest. Its popularity has grown immensely; even the New York Times and Oprah have praised its benefits.

This article will discuss:

What is Acai?

What is acai and what exactly is so special about it? Initially, acai is a fruit which comes from the acai palm tree. It is round, dark purple, and similar in size to a grape. Acai juice and pulp are used in juice blends, sodas, and even alcohol.

So what’s so special about this fruit? For one, this small berry contains more antioxidants than a blueberry or pomegranate. Plus, it contains healthy fats and amino acids. Recent studies have shown that this is one of the most nutritious foods in the world, in fact.

Even though this is an extremely nutritious berry, you won’t find this fruit in the grocery store. Since the berry is so rich in nutrients, acai perishes after a quick 24-hours.

Luckily, acai pulp is frozen and freeze-dried into powder for a wider consumer audience. However, be careful buying acai products at your local grocer as the quality is questionable and often has no nutritional value. Health food and gourmet stores will sell acai, often in the form of juice, but it is still important to do your research to avoid being scammed.

Benefits of Acai Supplement

acaiSince the berry contains loads of antioxidants, fats, and amino acids, there are numerous reasons why acai is so healthy and beneficial.

Antioxidants can do many things for the body, one of which is fight premature signs of aging. They also enhance the immune system and aid in preventing health problems such as heart disease, cancer, and other health problems.

Along with antioxidants, healthy fats like omega fatty acids are in acai. Omega fats do various things for the body and reduce the signs of aging. Omega-3, 6, and 9 aid in developing cell structures, and even fight cardiovascular disease. 37.5 percent of acai pulp is healthy fats.

Another benefit of acai is the amino acids it contains. Amino acids are very important in biochemical processes, especially metabolism. For every 100g serving of acai, there are 8g of protein.

Super Berry Powder with Acai

You may have a hard time finding a reliable and nutritional source for acai. If so, a good source of acai is Perricone MD‘s Super Berry Powder with Acai.

  2. I have been purchasing the Dr. Max Powers Burn Supplement on the internet for over a year now and have finally met my goals so I am very excited. I was in a rut back about a year ago and was eating out of habit, had broken up with my boyfriend, and it was just spirling down hill. After hitting what felt like rock bottom, I decided that I was not going to be self destructive and instead be good to my self.

    I have a new boyfriend now and I have improved my eating habits in a big way. The Dr Max Powers Burn has helped my cravings and the fat burn has been doing the rest. I have met my goals now so I think I will cut the dose in half for the fat burn and just take 1 per day as long as I am not gaining weight.

    I will continue to take the 2 Dr Max Powers Burn pills every day since they are all natural and will help me maintain my weight by not being so hungry.

  3. I have try a lot of diet pills to lose weight, however, it turn out lots of disappointment~ I am so glad that my doctor recommended the Dr Max Powers BURN. I thought it was just for men, but y doctor said his female patients saw great results! So I ordered from the Dr Max Powers website online and I found myself lost more than 10 pounds in two weeks and I highly recommend this product to my friends~!

  4. Dr. Perricone and Staff,

    My husband and I love your products! We are currently using the Cold Plasma, Super Berry Powder and Pep. We just started taking the Total Skin and Body (my husband, age 63) and Weight Loss Suppliments (me, age 45). We are also following your weight loss program. As of the beginning of the year, I have lost 34 pounds and my husband has lost 19 pounds. Since adding the vitamins we have noticed we have more energy and our skin looks better. We would love to be Perricone Testers! I have noticed you do not have many men who are willing to be testers. I hope you consider my husband as your first male tester! We would love to try more of your products.

  7. I’ve been coping with fibromyalgia & thyroid symptoms as best as possible without medication for years. I eat & drink healthy, take vitamins & supplements, but fatigue, pain & excess weight has made exercise so difficult. Heard about benefits of acai berry but not much else. Also see Dr. Perricone’s skin care products on QVC, interested but don’t have the money at this time. I know I need something, a boost of encouragement to feel & look better. Can this help??

  8. I love Acai ever since I read about in your books!
