Acai Palm with Acai berries

Acai is pronounced as "ah-sigh-ee".

Acai berry is harvested from acai palm. Besides the berry, the heart of palm can also be consumed. In fact, this is slowly being marketed as a delicacies.

Studies have shown that acai berries oil can be stored fairly long term without having any adverse effects on the oil.

It's reputation as a superfood took off after "appearing" on the Ophra Winfrey show in 2004.

Originally touted to have weight loss effects, controversies still surround this claim. As with all natural remedies and medicine, the effects will vary depending on many factors, including the state of the individual's health, the toxicity of the individual's body, etc.

Bearing in mind that antioxidants work best as a group, it also depends on how much nutrients and antioxidants exist in the individual's body at the time of consumption.

I can testify that I have lost weights at two different times of my life, by just changing my diet to include fruits - in recent times, I lost 3.8 kgs in 10 days, and 20 years ago following similar diet, lost almost 4 kgs in 10 days. Both times, I felt so much more energized!!!

20 years ago, I didn't know about antioxidants; now, I believe that the answers may lie in the antioxidants in the fruits! ... I continue my research ... ;-)
