I try to stay healthy. I start the day with a nutritious breakfast, usually including whole-grain cereal. I also tend to drink some juice with it. I’m told I need more anti-oxidants in my system, whatever that means. I found some juice that can help with this. Acai juice is one of the best ways to boost the anti-oxidants in your blood stream.

The Acai Berry which is commonly pronounced a-sigh-ee, is a rather small, round, and black-looking purple. It resembles a grape or a blueberry, but is yet smaller and darker. This fruit has a large seed and minimum amount of pulp. The acai fruit berry is now broadly used in energy juices, ice cream, certain energy bars with granola.

Known as the miracle fruit, acai berries also helps in preventing cancer due to it’s antioxidant properties that are five times more potent than gingko biloba, a commonly used herbal therapy product.

Acai berry juice has been introduced into other products like bars and health snacks to be sold at gyms and health spars. It’s history is important as by studying the effects that the berry has had on the tribesmen in the Amazon we have discovered that it’s traditional use as an energy booster for hunting and good libido has lead to acai berry juice to being a very commercially viable product.

There are many health benefits to drinking or eating Acai berries. I’m hoping that drinking this stuff will help me contain my free radicals!

  1. I’m brazilian, and Açaí (as it is spelled in Portuguese) is one of the most popular food here.
    It really is very very healthy and tasty!
    Personally i prefer the “cream” version, which has an extra benefit during the summer. Since the cream is almost frozen, it is very refreshing.

  2. Chris,

    May I humbly refer you to Brian Dunning’s Skeptoid podcast on this issue?

    Chances are, the Acai juice you’re drinking contains no more antioxidants than an apple. If you like the taste, that’s fine. But there’s no scientific evidence to support the health claims you’re making and it’s probably more efficient to increase your antioxidant intake and “contain your free radicals” (whatever that means) by eating nutritiously. Eat vegetables and fruit.

  3. The problem with juices is that they mostly have sugars and loads of added ingredients to stabilize it. If you want to enjoy Acai best to take freeze-dried Acai supplements – preferably Organic and Fair Trade.

  4. well i was internested in the acai thing. i went to one of those sites to check it out. i think it was http://www.healthyoptionsforwomen.com and ordered a free trial. it did not perform magic for me but did see some weightloss stuff. i really liked the fruit. i hope you continue the healthy lifestyle, i am trying to beat the new years rush and have it be a habit before then.

  5. I keep listening to the news speak about getting free online grant applications so I have been looking around for the best site to get one.

  6. the acai berry is a caloric drink (due the high lipase tenor), with high fiber tenor, anthocyanin and other micro-nutrients. It is considered one of the most nutritional antioxidant rich berries from the jungles of the rainforest..
