Until recently the most commonly known super food was the Blueberry because of its abundance of antioxidants, but Acai berry is known to have 7 times the level of antioxidants than Blueberries which is absolutely amazing. Not only that, acai berry also has high levels of anthocyanins which help to conserve the level of antioxidants in foods even after they have been eaten.

Other Beneficial Qualities of Acai Berry
If you’ve never heard of free radicals then let me quickly explain. The natural process of converting sugar into energy has a nasty side effect. This side effect is called free oxidising radicals or free radicals for short. It is like an acid that attacks bone and tissue around the body and is known to be one of the causes of bone and joint problems such as arthritis and linked to aging in general. As we grow older our ability to neutralise free radicals diminishes which in turn increases our risks of suffering from conditions and diseases that are well known to least to death. Acai berry has the ability to absorb and neutralise these harmful free radicals [oxygen radical absorbance capacity or ORAC for short] Reducing the risks of such diseases so promoting a longer healthier life.
