Açai provides essential nutritional support for your body's vital functions. Its principal macronutrients are omegas 6 and 9, unsaturated fatty acids that are crucial in lowering blood cholesterol levels and the associated risk of heart disease. Açai also contains a high amount of dietary fiber, important for regulating the gastro-intestinal function and for reducing the risk of type II diabetes. And, perhaps most importantly, açai is literally loaded with anthocyanins, powerful antioxidants that protect us from the oxidizing action of free radicals thereby preventing damage to our cells and its potentially grave consequences, including cancer, diabetes, and premature aging. And to top it all off, açai contains no gluten, caffeine or cholesterol and is practically devoid of natural sugars. A truly amazing nutritional profile!
