What is an Acai Berry?
Acai is a reddish-purple fruit that grows on palm trees. Acai is one of the most popular super fruits on the planet.
Where is Acai from?
It hails from deep within the lush tropical region of the Amazon Rainforest of Brazil.
The Amazon is one of the most biodiverse regions on the planet, and home to one-third of all plant and animal species in the world. By growing in such a living, breathing environment, the acai berry becomes very resilient. This is one of the main reasons for its amazingly high levels of antioxidant properties. Polyphenols, anthocyanins and flavonoids are just a few of the immune boosting compounds found in this inch-long, reddish-purple berry.
Not only is acai known for its profound antioxidant levels, it also nourishes the body and mind with essential amino acids, healthy fats, and dietary fiber.
The acai berry is found growing off of palm trees, along the banks of the Amazon River, if you’re so inclined to go there and pick the berry yourself. If not, you’ll find all the health benefits of this berry blended into our Javazen Boost, our superfood coffee blend that keeps you energetically balanced throughout the day.Fun Fact: Acai must be freeze dried within 24 hours of harvesting to keep its nutritional profile in tact!
