This superfood hype from the USA has long since arrived in Germany in the form of juice, powder or fruit spread: the talk is of the Brazilian miracle berry Açai. Superfoods like these bring variety to the diet and, thanks to their valuable ingredients, are said to have positive effects on health.
The açai berry is the fruit of the cabbage palm, native to the humid valleys and flood plains of the Amazon basin. In its region of origin it is a traditional staple food of the indigenous population.
The purple-black berries are hugely popular, and with good reason. They have a high concentration of valuable antioxidants, fatty acids, amino acids, vitamins, minerals and dietary fiber. As such, they are said to boost the immune system, increase energy levels and stamina, and even slow down the aging process. They are also said to be able to prevent heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer's and cancer and to regulate cholesterol and blood sugar levels.
The Açai berry has earned the title of Superfood. The use of Açai powder is particularly recommended, as this is much less complicated due to the longer shelf life. Açai powder can also be found in SanaExpert Acai Berry , which can be taken as a capsule or powder, mixed with drinks, yoghurt or muesli .
