Acai. Nothing sounds more Hindi than that. But nope, Acai does not come from the holy land of India. Acai is mostly native to the soil of the Latinese: Brazil Trinidad, and northern part of South America—whilst the name itself comes from the land of Europe…Portugal to be exact.

All over the world, acai berries are always found in the middle of other fruits, whether inside a healthy bowl or in the form of smoothies. Acai berry deserves its popularity because it super, super, beneficial to the health.

In case your family members are coming home this Christmas and you want to surprise them with some sweetness, you can pick Acai berries from the rack of your nearest modern supermarket and turn your Christmas dining table to a perfect adoration. Show your families that you care about their health!

Acai fruits were used to treat diarrhea, parasitic infections, hemorrhages, and ulcers in the traditional era. Acai has a high level of antioxidant activity similar to cranberries, yet more than what’s been found in blueberries and strawberries. Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) values measuring the antioxidant power of acai shows that acai berries have ORAC value among fruits and vegetables, 10 times more antioxidants than red grapes.

Acai berries are low in sugar, yet they contain excellent amounts of iron, calcium, fiber, and vitamin A. Compounds such as such as resveratrol and cyaniding and ferulic acid team up with flavonoids to defend the body against harmful free radicals. In fact, acai berries contain 10 to 30 times more anthocyanin power than red wine.

Beneficial fatty acids such as oleic acid, one of the same oils found in olive oil, is another acai’s strong point, and healthy levels of dietary fiber from acai may keep the system functioning smoothly.

TL;DR: acai is small, but powerful in nutrients. It is also a bomb to your mouth since it tastes like chocolate and berries at the same time. You can creativitize acai in your favourite bowls [http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/04/15/acai-bowls-recipe_n_5147465.html] and merry-be-healthy!
