What are Açaí Berries?

The Amazon Superfood ™

Açaí is more than just a purple berry. In fact, it's thought to be the most powerful superfood in the Amazon. Grown on the Açaí palm in the floodplains of the rainforest and wild harvested by hand, this nutritional powerhouse has long been a staple of indigenous diets. 

Açaí pronunciation can be difficult at first, but this video can help you solve the mystery and master the AH-SIGH-EE pronunciation once and for all.

  • ANTIOXIDANT RICH:

    Açaí is full of anthocyanins that tackle free radicals to help keep your defenses high. Just like blueberries, only tastier!

  • PACKED FULL OF HEALTHY OMEGAS 3,6,9:

    Açaí supports heart health, brain funtion, and healthy skin and hair with a fatty acid profile similar to that of olive oil, walnuts, and fish!

  • LOW IN NATURALLY OCCURRING SUGARS:

    Açaí is low in naturally occurring sugars which means less sugar spikes and more goodness.

HEALTHY DOESN'T USUALLY TASTE THIS GOOD
