O.N.E. Amazon Acai, the amazing "superfruit"
Why is this fruit causing so much of a stir among nutrition experts? For starters, the Acai berry has twice the antioxidant content of blueberries and ten times that of red grapes. These antioxidants found in Acai are more long lasting in effect as well. The Acai contains a lot of fatty acids, including oleic acid, which can reduce cholesterol levels. The University of Florida has done studies on the fruit, finding that the Acai berry also has compounds called polyphenolics which can slow down the progress of leukemia. The Acai berry is at the top of the “super foods” list because it: has anti-inflammatory properties, lowers cholesterol, helps your body burn excess fat, regulates metabolism, lowers blood pressure and cholesterol, protects against cancer and heart disease, promotes digestive health and gives you energy too!
O.N.E.™ Amazon Açaí is a delicious and healthy natural beverage made from fresh Açaí fruit grown naturally (wild crafted) in the middle of the Amazon Rainforest.
