Acai is one Super Berry!

What is Acai Berry? (Pronounced – Ah-Sigh-Eee!)

Acai is native to tropical central and South America from Belize South to Brazil and Peru and is most commonly known as Acai Palm, Assai Palm or Cabbage Palm. The palm mainly grows in floodplains and swamps and has been used by thousands of people over centuries. It is tall and slender, growing between 15-30 metres tall and contains different 8 species. It is rich in copper and high in manganese. Acai palm trees that are in the wild develop 4-8 stems from a single seed and root system. They also produce small brown/purple flowers and have adapted well to live and thrive in seasonally flooded areas.

The Acai is harvested as food and is also an all-natural weight loss supplement. It produces around about 4-8 bunches of fruit a year making it one of the most prolific fruiting palms in the forest. The Acai Berry fruit is a small, round black/purple drupe which is similar in size and appearance of a grape.

The Palm produces a highly nutritious edible berry. Acai berries are the most nutritious foods of the Amazon as they are rich in B vitamins, minerals, fibre, protein, omega-3 fatty acids and oleic acid (omega-9). The Acai Berry is an herbal medicine; the oil of the fruit is used to treat diarrhoea. An infusion of the grated fruit rind is used as a tropical wash that treats skin ulcers and the fruit seeds are crushed and prepared to treat fevers.

The Acai palm can also be made into Juice which is a dark purple colour and is known to regulate plasma cholesterol and can combat premature ageing. The juice is extracted from the small, round fruit by soaking the seeds in water and then squeezing and straining them to produce an extremely tasty, dense, purple liquid. The juice is recommended to be served fresh and ice cold for a more refreshing taste. Also Acai Berry juice is used to produce many edible and drinkable things such as ice cream, liquor, mousses and sweets.

Generally the berries from the Acai Palm are used for food; however the leaves of the palm are used to make hats, mats, baskets, brooms, roof thatch for homes, trunk wood and a resistance to pests and building construction.

This amazing fruit has quite magical properties:
– Its pulp contains very powerful antioxidants that help in cleansing your system, leading to weight loss in many cases.
– When your digestive system is kept clean it results in regular bowel movements leading to weight loss.
– It also has properties that can increase your metabolic rate allowing you to burn far more calories that you would normally burn.
– Acai can also help by keeping sugar fattening properties at bay which means that in moderation you can enjoy your favorite foods while on an Acai Berry Diet.
