The South American acai berry is a small, round fruit, not so unlike our purple grapes. They grow deep in the Amazon rain forests and natives climb the tall trees to harvest these delicate berries by hand.

The berries taste is absolutely delicious; a delicate blend of mixed berries and dark chocolate. Acai berries are only an inch or so in size with little pulp to the berries since the seeds are large and account for the majority of the fruit. The Caboclo peoples of the Brazilian Amazon have long enjoyed the health benefits of this fruit.

This amazing fruit makes up fifty percent of the native food intake. The acai berry is given the title of a "miniature super fruit." It's a fact that this fruit has the ability to provide people with great levels of energy and promotes overall health and strength. Many believe that it has the ability to control weight and native people consider these super berries to give users strong hearts, clear minds and long lives.

The acai berry juice has been used in a variety of different juices and drinks found in Peru and Brazil and more recently it has become available in Western countries. In Brazil the fruit is eaten fresh, mixed with tapioca, sugar and honey or mixed with granola and added to ice cream as part of a dessert. Numerous reports, confirmed by peers in the field, are available across South America documenting the wonderful properties of the acai fruits. These include its ability to deliver superior energy to people those who consume it.

Acai berries contain a tremendous amount of healthy fats and it is for this reason that they are a very perishable food item. Western countries can enjoy acai in yogurts, juices, or as energy health drinks. It is also available as a frozen fruit pulp or a freeze-dried powder in areas that are some distance from where the berry is harvested.

Contained in the fruit is anthocyanins and resveratrol. Studies show these have benefits for the human body. One benefit is that within two hours when drinking acai juice the antioxidant level increases significantly in the blood stream. This antioxidant increase heightens the body's ability to fight free radicals that attack cells in the body.

There are also ongoing studies that suggest that this fruit is good for heart and blood circulation. Other studies are showing great promise that active ingredients in the berry may even be useful for fighting certain cancers.

For Australians and others who live and play at a fast pace, this fruit is able to provide energy whilst also providing other health benefits.

Increased energy levels and endurance is what many consumers are finding so wonderful about juice drinks that now contain acai. People who live athletic life styles like swimmers, runners, and other outdoors lovers will find this energy-producing supplement gives them all the energy they need to enjoy their healthy, active lives.
