The acai berry (actually pronounced: “ah-sah-ee”) is a delicious, and increasingly popular berry from the rainforests of South America. The acai resembles the blueberry in appearance but has a distinct taste that is often described as having a chocolate flavor.
Uses and Benefits:
The acai berry is difficult to source and therefore its most common applications are in the form of powders and supplements. Acai powders are a great addition to smoothies as they’re full of antioxidants, vitamins, and omegas (fatty acids).
Many people refer to the acai as a superfood – and with good reason. In addition to general health benefits, it’s suggested that acai can be good for:
– Increased energy levels
– The heart health
