If we were to rank all fruits by their nutritious value, acai would definitely be on the top of the list. This still relatively unknown fruit is native to Brazil and it’s been considered a superfood in recent years. Here are just some of the reasons why it’s important to include acai in your diet:
• Rich in antioxidants: Acai is full of substances that protect us from the damage of free radicals, which can contribute to many diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, arteriosclerosis, even some types of cancer.
• Improves digestion: Acai changes our internal bacterial fermentation, increasing good bacteria and decreasing the number of bad bacteria.
• Rich in zinc: Zinc is good for our skin since it can hydrate, promote elasticity, and prevent premature aging of the skin.
• Good for brain: Oxidation and inflammation in the process of aging make us tired and forgetful. Berries regenerate brain cells, and „clean up“ the toxic cells that accumulated over the years.
