What Makes Açaí a Superfood?
Açaí has become a household name in recent years and is continuing to grow more and more popular. This rise in popularity is not just because of its delicious and unique flavour and the variety of ways that it can be prepared, but also because of its perceived “superfood” health benefits.
So -- Is Açaí really a superfood?
SAMBAZON, known as the best Açaí brand, has collected all of the available information about the Açaí health benefits so that you can decide for yourself!
What are Açaí Berries and Where Do They Come From?
Açaí is more than just your average berry, it is a nutrient-packed Amazonian berry that has long been a staple of indigenous diets. Fresh Açaí berries will not be found in the produce section of grocery stores since the berries themselves have a short shelf life. They are instead sold as a frozen fruit puree or pressed juice.
The unique, exotic flavor of Açaí is something in between mixed berries, dark chocolate, and red wine, providing a savory, diverse flavor that has made it such a popular base for smoothies.
From the beginning, SAMBAZON has been committed to giving back to the community of farmers and protecting the biodiversity of the Amazon. In order to do so, we created our own responsibly managed supply chain of Certified Organic and Fair Trade Açaí that ensures the Açaí comes directly from the palm of the tree to the palm of your hands.
Açaí is known for being nutrient dense, most notably the antioxidants, fiber, and omegas that it provides.
Açaí is high in antioxidants.. Why are antioxidants so important? They tackle free radicals and can help keep your defenses high.
Fiber & Heart Healthy Fats
The fiber and heart healthy fats found in Açaí are said to have a positive nutritional impact. According to the FDA, incorporating fruits into your diet that are high in fiber can reduce risk of coronary heart disease.
Omega 3, Omega 6 & Omega 9
