Açaí Craze

Actual Acai Berries

This is the place to find out everything about Açaí.

Let’s start with some facts. Açaí is very healthy and its’ antioxidant properties categorize Açaí as a superfood. Açaí can help with weight loss, anti-aging, and a whole slew of other benefits (which I will talk about later on). After much research I have found that there are conflicting accounts by people to the this whole Açaí thing… but I have determined that no one is debating the validity of the powers of Açaí, but instead they are discussing the results of some of the Açaí products on the market.

I have two things to say about this.

First, I am not endorsing any of the products out there. There are all kinds of supplement products from juice, to powdered drinks, to pills. Some are better than others, but there is no doubt that the best way to get the benefits of Açaí is directly from the Açaí berry. The problem is accessibility to the berry. It is not readily available in North America, and if you can find it, it is expensive. The market has responded by producing products in many forms to capture the benefits of Açaí. It is your job to choose a product that works for you – like I said before, I am not endorsing any of these products. This is an unbiased website and my intention is to provide valuable information so you can make an educated choice.

Second, achieving results requires some efforts and/or changes on your part.  For instance, if you want to lose weight and improve your general health, Açaí will be a huge benefit, but you’ll also need to drink plenty of water, control your food intake, and get exercise.  So make sure you are doing your part before you make a determination of how good or bad a given product is.  I want to hear what you have to say. The comments on the blog page of this website are open – so please share your experiences and knowledge regarding Açaí and any of the products you have tried – whether good or bad.

More Facts About The Acai Berry

It is smaller than a grape and produces very little pulp because of its large seed in the middle.  It is most often dark purple in color and contains dark pigments.  The berry typically grows in branched clusters of 700-900 berries.  The acai berry is one of Brazil’s most popular foods and is used in making a delicious snack called an acai bowl.  Brazilian acai juice has become tremendously popular within the past few years and is making quite an impact in the United States, Europe, and Asia.  It is important for the juice to contain the entire fresh or freeze-dried acai pulp to reach the maximum benefit.  Fresh acai is difficult to get because it does not transport well.  Freeze-dried acai, however, still contains the health properties and benefits.
