By Kevin DiDonato MS, CSCS, CES
Grown in the Amazon…
Small, dense, purple little berries…
A perfect blend between blackberries and dark chocolate…
Able to provide health benefits for ANYONE who touches them…
What could it be?
The acai berry!
And yes, you SHOULD believe all the hype regarding this little berry and its effects on overall health…
Acai Berries and Your Health
These tiny berries are found and grown in Central and South America.
The intense heat and sunshine give this amazing little berry its dark purplish-black hue.
Although tiny, don’t underestimate the POWER of this berry!
In fact, Dr. Oz and other medical professionals have raved about this berry for quite some time.
But many people are asking, “Is it really that good for you?”
And the resounding answer is…
And, to top it off, acai berry (in a roundabout way) may boost weight loss, reduce fine lines and wrinkle, eliminate cellulite AND improve your health at the same time!
Okay, so what are some of the powerful benefits?
The deep bluish-purplish-black color of the acai berry may hold more than meets the eye.
In fact, they contain powerful anthocyanins which may be responsible for their colorful hue.
Now, the anthocyanins have been linked to a reduction in things such as heart disease and certain cancers.
But here is where they may fight off the fat!
Anthocyanins are powerful antioxidants that also may aid in inflammation control.
You see, when you have high levels of inflammation in your body, then all your cells may be affected.
And in cases where your fat cells are inflamed, you may have a harder time releasing fatty acids from your fat cells.
And this inflammation could also cause your fat cells to stop producing the fat-busting hormone adiponectin, or even leading to cells not responding to leptin.
But these anthocyanins may quell the fires of inflammation, possibly returning your fat cells to their fat, healthy, hormone-releasing selves.
But these berries don’t stop there!
Acai berries are also a low-calorie and fiber-rich food!
And including this berry into a healthy nutrition, plan may lead to greater weight loss and fat loss.
The fiber found in this berry, just like other fiber-rich foods, may fill you up and leave you less hungry when going through your day.
Plus, due to the fiber content, acai berries may also prevent you from overeating. Oh, and did I mention they are a very sweet berry?
The sweetness of the berry, in and of itself, may satisfy your sweet cravings, therefore preventing you from eating all that processed junk food that may be tempting you!
And there is ONE more benefit…
Acai berries are full of the omega-3 fatty acids, DHA and EPA!
Now, they don’t contain A LOT, but they do contain some levels of omega-3 fatty acids, which are great for better heart health AND lowering inflammation levels.
Important Notes on Acai Berry
Although you can get fresh acai berry, it may not be full of the inflammation-fighting nutrients like when it was first picked.
You see, it’s a long way from Central or South America, and some of the nutrients may degrade from the long trip.
The best ways to eat them is either in the dried form or frozen. Both of these forms are made when the berry is at peak ripeness, meaning you have more of the powerful nutrients retained in the berry!
Eat The Right Diet
The best way to improve your health is to eat the right diet, exercise, and including plenty of fruits and vegetables.
Most people turn to your common everyday fruits and vegetables, which is perfectly fine, but you may be missing out on the powerful benefits of what some call the Superfoods.
Full of antioxidants, healthy fats, and overwhelming levels of vitamins and minerals, these super foods may provide health-boosting nutrition that everyone needs!
And the acai berry falls in place with these powerful superfoods!
But you need to eat them with the RIGHT diet in order to maximize their potential health benefits!
Including these powerful berries – with the right diet and exercise program – could help you shed unwanted fat, fight internal inflammation, and boost your overall health!
