There is a huge debate going on right now whether acai berry is effective for weight loss or not. Recently, this fruit has gained wide popularity around the globe for its great healthy benefits. The Acai Berry gained more popularity than any other fruit because of its high levels of antioxidants and anthocyanins. It was also voted by Oprah to be the world’s number 1 super food, which increased its popularity even more.
The acai berry is being studied by many different people in many different universities and they all claim that the acai berry has a lot of minerals, vitamins and fatty acids that are necessary for the human body.
So the health benefits that the acai berry provides are indeed a fact. The acai berry does NOT do any miracles. For example: If you eating and drinking acai berry products, don’t except that you are going to lose weight in an instant. It HELPS, but you have to give it some time and keep a healthy diet.
We all know that berries such as the cranberry and blueberry contain good vitamins and minerals , so what makes the Acai Berry even better?
Products with acai berries gives more benefits that most fruit supplements do. Acai berry products are known to contain lots of antioxidants and anthocyanins(much more than other fruits).
Antioxidants are an important part in our diets because they can absorb free radicals. We get free radicals from the food that we don’t digest properly, and by stress due to regular physical activities. Blueberries used to be the wonder fruit when it comes to antioxidants, but studies have shown that acai berry products contain twice the amount of antioxidants found in blueberries.
Anthocyanins are known to lower bad cholesterol levels that we acquire by eating fatty foods and not maintaing a healthy diet. The good thing about acai berry products is that they have ten times the amount of anthocyanins that are found in red grapes and red wine(that is a great potential). With Acai berry you get to eliminate fat more effectively than if you were to drink red wine and you won’t suffer from alcohol side effects.
