Acai berry is an inch-long reddish, purple fruit from Central and South America. Its combination of antioxidants, amino acids and omega fatty acids all help slow the aging process by boosting immune and metabolic function and removing destructive free radicals from our bodies. Acai contains anthocyanin, a powerful antioxidant, which is also common in red and purple colour fruits such as grapes and blueberries. Acai’s ORAC level (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) is over 3,500, which is hundreds of times higher than your average fruits like apples and bananas – Amazing! Also, the little Acai berry packs more grams of protein than an egg, and when combined with its host of omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids, which helps to improve the quality of your hair, skin and nails. You beauty!
I made this breakfast bowl for Daniel this morning. It contains quinoa flakes, milk, Acai powder and honey topped with goji berries, cacao nibs, buckwheat, bee pollen and coconut. He is going to look so glowing and beautiful after this 🙂 You can also add a teaspoon of Acai berry powder into your drink, smoothies, cereal, muffins and cakes for an antioxidant boost. Have a good weekend, everyone x
