It is now starting to find recognition around the world due to the nutritional value the fruit offers. It was first imported into the US in 1999 and is now one of the most requested ingredients in the fruit juice and smoothie sector there.
Anothcyanins such as cyanidin-3-glucoside are found in the Acai Berry in elevated quantities. The so-called French Paradox that is attributed to red wine originates from the cardiovascular and cholesterol management benefits that come from the anthocyanins found in red wine. "The level of these anthocyanins in the Acai Berry are 30 times higher than red wine" - Mike Law, http://www.whatismonavie.com/mikelaw
These anthocyanins are also regarded as very efficient natural antioxidants. Antioxidants are known to scavenge the free radicals that are precursors to serious diseases such as cancer. Consuming natural products rich in anthocyanins is considered a very good way of boosting antioxidant behaviour in the human body.
The Acai Berry is also a fruit rich in essential fatty acids. The proportion of these unsaturated fats (omega 6 and omega 9) is very similar to that of olive oil. These essential fatty acids are known to promote HDL (good) cholesterol and to reduce LDL (bad) cholesterol levels.
The Acai Berry has a number of other nutritional constituents including vitamin E, calcium, iron and magnesium. "The fruit has no sugar, and a low glycaemic load" - Mike Law, http://www.whatismonavie.com/mikelaw
Tests for something called the ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity) index, a recognized definitive measure of oxidation potential capacity, show that the Acai Berry has an antioxidant capacity superior to other fruits, and four to six times that of Blueberries. As yet, there is no established recommended daily intake of antioxidants but research out of the US suggests anywhere between 3,500 and 8,000 ORAC units per day.
