FEATURE STORY/// Sambazon Warrior of Change Kassia Meador

Sambazon Warrior of Change Kassia Meador was one of the first surfer girls to step up and become part of the Keep A Breast campaign. “Since my mother’s successful fight against breast cancer,” says Kassia, “I’ve been deeply involved in breast cancer awareness with Keep A Breast." KAB has traveled many places with Kassia, and has casted her breasts many times for Keep A Breast Exhibitions. Her casts alone have raised over $50,000 for KAB and she has become a prominent spokesperson for the cause by representing KAB all over the world and the importance to live a healthy toxic free lifestyle.

KAB just showcased a collection of Kassia’s images taken on her summer trip to France and Spain at the KAB 10 year anniversary in Culver City last month. This October Kassia will be bringing breast cancer awareness with her as she heads out to NYC for Joel Tudor’s duct tape invitational and on a road trip with Roxy.

Today, Kassia Meador and KAB are a part of the Warrior Up campaign. Curious? Check out KAB art on our blog and Kassia’s Sambazon Warrior Page.
Q & A: /// What does "antioxidants fight free radicals" mean?
Q and A highlights standout inquiries from customers that we receive each month.

Q:What does "antioxidants fight free radicals" mean?

A: Lets start from the beginning. Oxygen is what we breathe, but it also is damaging to us. Oxidation, while necessary for life, can also damage cells and turn them into free radicals. (Other things less necessary like cigarette smoke and excessive alcohol consumption can create free radicals too.)

Free radicals are “free” because they are missing a molecule. They are unstable compounds that react with other molecules damaging them in the process and thus creating a chain reaction that proliferates free radicals. Antioxidants help stop that chain reaction.

Sambazon Cover Beverage Spectrum

Beverage Spectrum gave Sambazon a great cover story of their latest issue. The story talked about the tribulations of the açaí industry today and how legit açaí makers are using their marketing efforts to communicate the truth (not the hype) about the truly remarkable benefits of the little purple berry.
Sambazon is the largest vertically integrated supplier and marketer of Açaí products, controlling every step of the manufacturing process to ensure sustainable and organic origin of the fruit as well as the highest level of quality, nutrition and taste.

Zona Sul is the area in Rio where Açaí became popular with the local surfers, jiu jitsu fighters and capoeristas in the mid to late 90's. The traditional Rio-Bowl became the ultimate way to start the day by fueling up before a workout. Word travels fast and today Açaí is becoming a dietary staple for health conscious people all over the planet. For more information, go to: www.sambazon.com
