What are Acai Berries?

The Acai Berry is wildly popular as a leading source of antioxidants.  Although small, this incredible berry does indeed have mammoth antioxidants that boost the immune system to new heights and support cellular function for sustained health and energy.  Zokiva is delighted to introduce our new Acai Berry Powder Extract in a 4:1 concentration that is more potent than most other forms of Acai Powder. 

As far as immune supporting superfruits go, few are as powerful at strengthening the immune system as the Acai Berry.  This magnificent exotic purple berry boasts incredible antioxidants that are expansive and diverse.  Antioxidants each work differently to support the body. Therefore, the more types of antioxidants you can introduce into your system and the more potent they are the more influence they will have on protecting, healing and strengthening the body.   The Acai Berry contains two impressive categories of antioxidants:  polyphenolic anthocyanin compounds including cyanidin-3-galactoside (C3G), resveratrol, delphinidin, ferulic acid and petunidin, and proanthocyanidin tannins including ellagic acid, epicatechin, and protocatechuic acid.  Along with other phyto-nutrients such as electrolytes, B vitamins, Vitamin C, plant sterols, fiber and several essential trace minerals, Acai offers unprecedented health benefits.

Cells are at the core of all bodily functions.  One of the biggest threats to cellular health is free radicals that cause oxidative stress.  This can lead to genetic mutations that quickly multiply and spread into disease.  Free radicals enter the body in a variety of ways including sun exposure, poor diet and toxins found in personal care products, clothes and pollution.  Although there is no way to ensure a lifetime without free radicals, antioxidants are the best defense the body has against this cell-destroying enemies.  Antioxidants combat free radicals, not only preventing them from damaging cells, but also reviving cells that have undergone oxidative changes. 

To this end, the Acai Berry is a tremendous line of defense against free radicals due to its high concentration of antioxidants.  Anthocyanins are some of the best antioxidants for protecting cells, while Vitamin C, ellagic acid and other polyphenolic compounds support the immune system in fighting off diseases caused by free radicals, inflammation and other foreign invaders.  Additionally, Acai Berries contain the polysaccharide known as arabinogalactan that stimulates the production of T-cells and interferon that boost immune function. 

It was once believed that the immune system was only helpful in fighting off minor sicknesses, such as colds, coughs and an upset stomach.  Now, it is clear that the immune system is responsible for much more and can help stave off many major illnesses and diseases.  The list of ways Acai Berries can help the human body is massive but some of the most common include: 

  • Acai berries are helpful in preventing bacterial infections, inflammation and respiratory irritation. 
  • Acai berries support heart health by lowering cholesterol and improving circulation due to strong plant sterols.
  • Acai berries boost energy for invigorating physical activity that can lead to weight loss.
  • Acai berries contain fiber that relieves a variety of digestive issues.
  • Acai berries supply additional oxygen and nutrients to the brain for improved cognition.
  • Acai berries rejuvenate skin with age-defying effects

Make Zokiva’s highly concentrated Acai Berry Powder Extract part of your antioxidant-rich diet to reap the incredible immune-boosting, invigorating benefits today.
