These unique acai berry capsules provide a broad spectrum of vitamins, minerals, and phyto-nutrients, as well as high levels of antioxidants. In capsule form, the goodness of these berries can very easily be incorporated into your daily diet.
More about the ingredients…
Acai berries are widely considered to be a “superfruit”. It was Nicholas Perricone MD who first announced acai berries as one of the top 10 superfoods of the world. They are rich in antioxidants and other important nutrients, such as potassium, iron, vitamin B, vitamin C, vitamin E and Omega oils (including essential fatty acids).
In fact, pure acai berries have 15-20 times the antioxidants (anthocyanins) that red grapes have! Anthocyanins are powerful antioxidants, derived from the pigment that gives acai berries their deep purple colour.
What are antioxidants?
So we know that acai berries are high in antioxidants! Plus we have added other antioxidant-rich foods and herbs into these acai berry capsules to create an even more more powerful antioxidant supplement. But why is this important?
Antioxidants are natural compounds and potent nutrients. They help the body to fight the harmful effects of free radicals – unstable molecules that can lead to cellular damage. Free radicals are produced as a result of the everyday stresses facing the body, including exposure to pollution, poor diet, alcohol intake, illness, stress, exercise and inflammation.
It is thought that, by helping to stabilize free radicals and thereby prevent a damaging chain reaction where healthy cells also become unstable, antioxidants may be able to help support a healthy immune system, as well as general health and vitality.
Resveratrol is a natural compound found in red grape skin, Japanese knotweed, peanuts, blueberries and some other berries. It is a powerful antioxidant produced by some plants to protect them against environmental stresses. Japanese knotweed is the plant source with the highest known resveratrol content.
Grape seed extract
Grape seed extract contains a broad spectrum of nutrients, including protein, lipids, carbohydrates and polyphenols. It is also rich in proanthocyanidins, which are similar to flavonoids. Studies have shown that the antioxidant power of polyphenols is 20 times greater than vitamin E and 50 times greater than vitamin C… which makes grape seed extract an ideal means of supporting the body against oxidative and free radical damage. One particular type of phenol found in grape seed is called procyanidin… which also supports eye health, joint flexibility and the circulatory system.
Native to Iran, the Himalayas and northern India, the pomegranate is packed with vitamins A, C, E and iron… and is often referred to as a “fruity panacea” because of its high nutrient content. As such, it is widely used by natural health practitioners. In Ayurvedic medicine, for example, the rind of the fruit is used to support digestive health and a clean gastro-intestinal system. It is now also known that the rind contains ellagitannins. The polyphenols present in this so-called “superfruit” have been studied, and continue to be studied, for their role in supporting health and beauty. For instance, many cosmetic preparations include pomegranate polyphenols, because they have been proven to protect the skin from sun damage and to promote the production of collagen.
