In Brazil the Açai berry is such a common phenomenon, they even have Açai berry stands on every corner (in Floripa). Was just reminded of all the amazing properties in these magic jungle berries: A high content of anthocyanins (antioxidantes)(antioxidants) – 15 to 30 times more than red wine.
Vitamins A y C which strengthen the immune system (defenses), skin and red blood cell formation.
Vitamin B complex, which helps us get more out of the nutrients from the food we eat, giving us more energy.
Essential fatty acids Omegas 3, 6 and 9. These fats are “friends” of the human body and are very important for our health. Unlike many other compounds, these are considered “essential” because our body does not produce them, even thought they are involved in vital functions, especially in the structure of cell membranes and the synthesis of prostaglandins, lecithin and myelin.
A large amount of fibre, which helps the digestive system and reduces the risk of certain cancers. In Brazil, açai berries are used to treat digestive disorders and some skin conditions.
Açai is extremely rich in organic vegetable protein (it contains more protein than eggs) so it does not produce cholesterol during its digestion and is more easily assimilated by the body than animal protein (milk, eggs, meat). #acaibowl #acai #wellness #feelsgood #brazil #amazon #jungle
