ACAI

Acai bowl? We’re thinking more like Acai bowel

Not only does our Acai taste good, it is also a super nutritious berry that grows on palm trees in the Bolivian Amazonian forests, which gives local farmers reason to work sustainably against deforestation. 

In a study focusing on measuring anthocyanin and antioxidant levels in acai, 12 fasting participants drank “acai pulp, acai juice, applesauce or a drink with no antioxidants at four different times”. Blood samples and urine samples showed that acai raised antioxidant levels and is therefore processed well in the gut. That’s why we’ve included it in YOU: Gut Glory.

There is a unit of measure for antioxidants called ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity) and in this journal you can read about acai. Summary: it has one of the highest levels in the world.
