More about Acai Berry Benefits
The acai berry is considered to be nature’s perfect food and for good reasons. Just take a look at some of the many health benefits offered by this tiny berry from the Amazonian rainforest:
Energy and Stamina: The acai berry has a very high level of antioxidant content which causes energy and stamina levels to increase dramatically. Did you know that jiu-jitsu fighters and soccer players in Brazil have a large helping of acai berry pulp before any competition because the acai berry acts as a natural energy booster and increases their stamina?
Since the acai berry also has a profound impact on our immune system and regular use of these berries can strengthen it significantly, it frees up some energy in our body which is usually reserved for our immune system. This causes an even higher influx of energy and stamina in the body, and that’s always a great thing.
Disease Prevention: The use of oxygen by our body causes free radicals. Free radicals also enter our system through pollutants, pesticides, cigarette smoke, etc. These free radicals are extremely harmful to our system and are capable of causing a number of diseases.
They can even have an effect as profound as damaging our DNA. The only effective way of fighting these harmful free radicals is with antioxidants. The high antioxidant levels of the acai berry can help fight these free radicals and prevent causing diseases, like cancer.
Obesity: The acai berry is filled with nutritional goodness. Its nutrients not only contain antioxidants, but also essential fatty acids, amino acids and phytosterols. These nutrients work together to help better functioning of all our organs, better digestive process and increase the body’s ability to burn fat quickly.
Additionally, acai berries help keep our system healthy and well nourished, which makes it easier for us to consume less.
Immune System: The acai berry provides our body with excellent anti-bacterial and anti-viral protection due to the antioxidants, essential fatty and amino acids in its nutrients, and also boosts our immunity system.
Heart Diseases: There are two types of cholesterol in our body, the bad cholesterol (LDL) which harms our heart, and the good cholesterol (HDL), which maintains the proper functioning of the heart.
The antioxidants and fatty acids in the acai berry fight the bad cholesterol and help maintain the good one, helping us maintain the health of our heart and fight diseases. Phytosterols is also found in acai berries, which reduces the ability of our intestines to absorb cholesterol. In fact, the acai berry can help reduce cholesterol in our body by as much as 15%.
Vision: Acai berries contain a rare type of antioxidants called "anthocyanins." These anthocyanins are excellent in treating eye strain and are capable of improving night vision. The acai berry also contains other antioxidants which are known to be effective preventive measures for eye-related diseases such as glaucoma and macular degeneration.
Digestion: Regular consumption of acai berries ensures that the digestive system is in great shape. It also prevents acid reflux and the fibers in the acai berry facilitate proper digestion of the food in the intestinal tract.Sleep: Dopamine and serotonin are two neurotransmitters which impact sleep. Vitamin B helps maintain their production in the brain. The acai berry contains vitamin B in large quantities, and these help you sleep peacefully. On the other hand, the amino acids found in acai berries help relieve tense muscles, and that helps you sleep better as well.
