What is Acai (Purpleberry)?
Acai palm berry

Açaí (as-sigh-ee) is the Brazilian name for the berry derived only from deep within the Amazon rainforest. It grows on a special palm tree the locals call “The Tree Of Life” and only recently this exceptional berry has been noted as "Nature's #1 superfood” and was recently stated to be “#1 food for anti-ageing benefits" by world renowned Dr M.D. Perricone on the Oprah Winfrey Show. Amazonia's Purpleberry has been shown to contain an exceptional concentration of antioxidants.

Up to 4 times the antioxidant concentration of Goji Berries.
Up to 34 times the antioxidant concentration of Fresh Blueberries.
Up to 101 times the antioxidant concentration of Red Grapes.
Due to hand harvesting and freeze drying - more than double the antioxidant concentration when compared to other brands of Acai.

What are the Nutritional Benefits of Acai?

Amazonia’s Premium Grade Acai is Organic and is Freeze Dried. Nutritional Analysis has shown the following:

3 gram serving of Amazonia Acai has the antioxidant equivalent to over a punnet and a half of blueberries (Laboratory ORAC analysis)
Complete Essential Fatty Acid Complex including omega 3, 6, 9 (very similar to olive oil)
Most essential and non-essential amino acids (including tyrptophan)
An almost perfect amino acid complex with trace minerals, oleic acid, phenophenols, rich concentration of plant sterols, calcium, iron and more.
No sugar content
High levels of oliec acid (Oliec Acid may help the omega 3 fish oils penetrate the cell membrane. Intern all hormones, neurotransmitters and insulin receptors function more efficiently. This is particularly important cause we all know high insulin levels cause an inflammatory state, and inflammation causes ageing. (Dr M.D. Perricone)
Vitamins A (as beta carotene), C (as ascorbate ion), E (as d-alpha tocopherol), D (as cholecalciferol), B-1 (as thiamin), B-2 (as riboflavin), B-3 (as niacin/ niacinamide), B-6 (as pyroidoxine), B-12 (as cyanocobalamin)
Over 16 different types of antioxidants and phytonutrients along with the richest known source of anthocyanins.
Best of all. Açaí (Purpleberry) tastes like a divine mixture of chocolate and berries!

Acai (Purpleberry) may assist with weight loss because it contains cyanidin - a highly antioxidant phytochemical compound. Japanese researchers have discovered that cyanin may have the effect of draining body fat as well as reducing fat absorption. Also, Acai has been said to be a great appetite suppressant.

How do I use my Açaí and what is the recommended daily intake?
Amazonia recommends a minimum of 3g (heaped teaspoon) of dried acai powder each day, you can consume much larger quantities of this berry however it is up to the individual. The more the better however within one 3 gram serving you get a lot of antioxidants!

Add it to your daily juice, protein shake, Yoghurt, water, over porridge or eat it straight. It tastes great! Our favourite recipe is two heaped tablespoons of Amazonia Acai added to mango juice.

Why can’t I seem to find Açaí in its whole berry form (like Goji Berries)?
Açaí has a huge seed and only a small fleshy skin and pulp. Therefore, when you consume Açaí you are mainly consuming the skin of the Açaí berry and we all know that the skins of fruit are much more nutrient dense than the pulp.

As explained above Açaí also needs to de-pulped and freeze dried shortly after harvest. Therefore is impossible to get the berry in its berry form. All Amazonia Aca, however, is still in the WHOLEFOOD form, however, it is crushed during the de-pulping and freezing.

Acai Berry Powder is:
