Pure Dried Acai
Acai (ah-sigh-ee) is an amazing energy berry from Amazon palm trees.
The acai berry is still sustainably hand-picked by the native Amazonians
and then sent down the forest road. Hidden within its royal purple
pigment is the magic that makes it nature's perfect food. RioLife acai
is packed full of antioxidants, energy, essential omegas 6 & 9
(good-for-you fatty acids), fibre, amino acids, vitamins and minerals.
Antioxidants neutralise free radicals, which are known to damage cells
in the body. Free radicals are caused by stresses on the body such as
pollution, exposure to the sun, exersize, smoking, and poor diet.

of the nutritional value of the fresh fruit and is a tasty food
supplement for juices, smoothies, yoghurt and cereal.

Benefits of the Acai Berry
Due to the nutritional makeup of the Acai berry, it has an amazing number of
health benefits. It has antioxidant properties, is antibacterial and
anti-inflammatory, is anti-mutagenic, and is great for the cardiovascular
system. The Acai berry is loaded with essential fatty acids such as omega 6 and
omega 9, which both work to lower the levels of bad cholesterol in the blood
while maintaining the levels of good cholesterol. The berry also contains
phytosterols, compounds which are very helpful for the body. In fact, one of
its main roles is reducing the levels of cholesterol in the blood plasma.
The Acai berry is also very rich in anthocyanins, which is great for the
eyes, blood vessels, connective tissue, and the nervous system. Anthocyanins
are a form of antioxidants. The Acai berry also has a number of antioxidants
that are excellent for the body as they help to restore other antioxidants
already in the body such as vitamin C, vitamin E, and glutathione. The
flavenoids in the berry also help to protect the body against disease. The
berry is also excellent for the eyes as it strengthens visual acuity and helps
with a number of eye diseases such as glaucoma or macular degeneration.
The Acai berry also contains enzymes and co-factors such as coenzyme Q10.
These help the body in digesting food, as well as transferring nutrients and
helping chemical interactions in the body. The anti-mutagenic compounds in the
berry help the body’s immune system to fight against cellular degeneration. The
berry also strengthens the body in all areas.
This berry is also helpful in people with sleep problems as it helps people
to sleep normally as well as providing nutrients to the muscles so that the
muscles are able to perform and relax better. It has also been used for
centuries as a means of cleansing and detoxifying the body.
