The Elixir of Eternal Youth … This nickname explains it all. The Acai is fashionable and not only because it is delicious or is full of nutrients but also because it really has an innate valuable power to our body. It is considered one of the most effective Superfoods and the best results are obtained when usually consumed.
It comes from a “majestic” palm tree native to the Amazonian countries and north of South America, being Brazil its main source and where we can find the most impressive specimens. The fruit from the Acai is what we eat, the Acai Berry (similar, aesthetically, to blueberries). It needs a lot of water to live and that is why we can find it in the riverbed of the Amazon.
It is considered the Elixir of Eternal Youth due to its high level of antioxidants, essential substances to slow down the usual rhythm of aging to the maximum and not only the aesthetic one, but also the cellular one. Besides, it is currently “referred to” as the fruit with more antioxidants existing in our nature. Its dark purple color has such powerful pigments that are the ones best absorbed by our body and it’s where its beneficial qualities come from.
We should all include Acai in our diet. You can add a teaspoon every morning or evening in your shakes, juices, vegetable creams, or any preparation. It is highly recommended for athletes or people with high physical exhaustion because it helps them recover lost nutrients. Likewise, patients with cardiovascular diseases will have in the Acai a great ally for their ailments.
It relieves stress and regenerates broken cells while always being on the nervous system.
It is a powerful antioxidant, as we said, but also energizing and, of course, detoxifying (it prevents fluid retention) and also reinforces defenses (vital for all).
* If you suffer from insomnia or have trouble sleeping, you’d better not use Acai because it is an energizer and will provide you with more vitality.
