For centuries, the natives of Brazil and Central America have long enjoyed the health benefits of the small black to purplish berries indigenous to the country – the Acai Berry. Taken fresh with 10% of the fruit eaten (its seed takes 90% of the fruit) or in various “superfood” preparations like yoghurts, energy beverages, as well as diet supplements, the Acai Berry fruit from the acai palm (Euterpe Oleracea) contains twice the antioxidant content of blueberries and ten times that of ordinary grapes.
2004 was the year Acai Berry being featured on NBC’s Today Show which presented the near-miraculous benefits of the berry on national TV. Since then, every health buff has been raving about it. It was then featured in the Oprah Winfrey Show along with CNN and RealAge trumpeting its health and dieting benefits. Despite the wide publicity, Acai Berry is still unknown to a lot people around
