What is Açaí?
Açaí is a palm tree originally from Brazil. The word translates to “fruit that cries water”.
It has been a crucial food for a very long time for the people who live in the Amazon River delta. It is a purple, grape-looking berry that is mashed into a paste and usually served with frozen fruit like bananas and blueberries finished with a topping of granola and or coconut.
Is It Good For You?
Açaí is EXTREMELY good for your health! It’s loaded with antioxidants and some say that it’s known to slow down the signs of aging!
We all know that inflammation is the number one cause of chronic pain and some chronic illnesses and just like most berries, açaí is packed with those anti-inflammatory agents like anthocyanins and proanthocyanins.
Not only does açaí also contain the healthy fats we need like Omega-3, Omega-6, AND Omega-9 fatty acids, it also has other lesser known healthy fats like oleic acid and palmitic acid.
The only other fruit that may rival the healthy fat content of açaí is the avocado.
If you’re in the mood for a delicious and healthy snack that will clean your body and refresh you, then grab a bowl of açaí to go!
