What is acai?
The acai is a fruit that comes from the Amazon, and is characterized by having powerful antioxidant properties. It is a small violet berry, whose size is 10 to 14 millimeters, similar to blueberry or black grape. It is the fruit of a palm called Euterpe oleracea, better known as “palm murrapo”, that grows in countries such as Brazil, Peru, Colombia, Venezuela and other Caribbean countries.
Properties and benefits of acai powder
Acai stands out for its antioxidant properties, since it contains almost 33 times more antioxidants than black grapes, and even more so than blueberries. In turn, the acai provides a lot of proteins, surpassing for example the egg, which makes it a perfect fruit to gain energy, and so it is very consumed by people who do sports regularly.
On the other hand, acai also provides a good amount of fiber, which, along with its other properties, helps regulate cholesterol as well as maintain good intestinal transit.
This food is ideal for help strengthening the nervous system by the omegas acids it has. It is diuretic and very nutritious, as it contains important amino acids and minerals such as calcium, zinc, magnesium and iron, as well as considerable amounts of potassium. Finally, its consumption provides vitamins E, C and B. So far, acai powder benefits sound awesome, right?
How to consume acai powder?
Consuming acai powder is the best and simplest way to incorporate this wonderful food into your diet. However, it contains slightly large particles and cannot be a fine powder due to its high fiber content.
That’s why, we recommend consuming it accompanied by a fruit smoothie. If for example you want to make a bowl of super healthy fruit and incorporate the acai, just mix this powder with the smoothed fresh cheese or milk with oatmeal to have a delicious and very healthy acai bowl recipe.
Use: It is recommended to consume 1 tablespoon (5g) per day, in smoothies, juices, etc.
