The native Brazilians had eaten Acai berry for hundreds of years as one of their main diets. By eating the skin and pulp portion of this wild grown fruit, scientists have discovered that they have a very low incidence of skin cancer despite the great exposure of equatorial sun.  This is mainly due to the high content of antioxidants present in the Acai berry. 

Antioxidant is a term that describes a molecule that has the ability to stabilize free radical or to inhibit the oxidation of other molecules, so there are identifiable antioxidants, such as vitamin C or E, and there are unknown antioxidants.

From the studying done by Dr. Lichtenthäler found out that there are over 90% of unknown antioxidants present in the acai which contribute its high antioxidant activity.  In addition, with many researches done by Dr. Schauss, in contrast of spray-dried method of processing the acai berry, only freeze-dried Acai powder showed an extremely high antioxidant level of 1027 micromol TE/g of any other food tested by ORAC (oxygen radical absorbance capacity) established by the USDA.

Acai also contains a high level of dietary fiber, rich in amino acids.  Its protein content is comparable to an egg, and its plant protein is easily absorbed by the body.  Acai is also a great source of vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, C, D and E, calcium, iron and trace minerals.

According to USDA, the development of many chronic and degenerative diseases, such as cancer, heart disease, and neuronal degeneration such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease has been theorized to be caused, in part, by oxidative stress. Oxidative stress has also been implicated in the process of aging. It is known that reactive oxygen species can damage biological molecules such as proteins, lipids, and DNA. While the human body has developed a number of systems to eliminate free radicals from the body, it is not 100% efficient.  Acai berry will be an excellent source of antioxidants.  Avid Pure Acai is truly the gift from the nature.
