Acai juice is no longer a secret that the celebrities are keeping to themselves, it is everywhere. Found on the beaches of Peru and Brazil, the acai fruit was first harvested several hundred years ago by Brazilians during a food shortage. Red wine was also made from extracting the juice from the acai fruit.
Researchers have found that acai juice has between 10 to 30 times more antioxidants than other fruits, such as pomegranates, blueberries and grapes. Extensive vitamins, amino acids and minerals are packed into the acai fruit making it one of the most nutritionally beneficial fruits you could eat. Many organic companies market this juice for health conscious consumers.
One traditional recipe from the Amazon mixes the fruit pulp of the acai with natural guarana seed. This recipe was said to provide energy and heighten mental clarity. When you mix acai with guarana, the result is a caffeine like effect, only healthier. According to medical research studies that have been conducted here in the United States, it is now believed the acai berries combat premature aging because of their high concentration of antioxidants, and we can all appreciate that!
