There are many healthy berries you can add to your diet. The acai berry is one of the healthiest berries you will ever find.
Acai is an indigenous berry found in the rain forests of the Amazon. This fruit has been heralded for centuries as a healing, immune-stimulating, energy-boosting fruit. Research reveals this antioxidant-rich berry may help suppress and repair oxidative damage. Let’s take a look at twelve health benefits of acai berries.
1. Promotes Heart Health
Similar to red wine, research shows that acai berries are extremely high in anthocyanins, a type of antioxidant that supports balanced cholesterol levels.[2, 3] They are also rich in plant sterols that provide cardio-protective benefits, including supporting circulation, improving overall blood composition, and relaxing the blood vessels.[4, 5]
2. Resists Harmful Organisms
Research has shown that consuming acai extract may help fight harmful organisms. However, I recommend oregano oil for this task.
3. Aids Weight Loss
Known by nutritionists as a superfood, acai may help us not only lose weight but maintain a healthy weight. One interesting study found that pulp from the acai berry had the ability to reduce fat deposits in study participants.
