Acai Berry vs Pomegranate

Pomegranates and Acai Berries – Powerful Superfoods

Pomegranates - Illustration of Punica Granatum The Acai berry and pomegranates are two of the most talked about superfoods in the health food industry. Both are an amazing natural source for many important vitamins and minerals. The question is; if you can only use one or the other which is better? This article is going to pit these two superfoods against each other and help you decide which one to pick.

The pomegranate is a sweet and tart tasting fruit that is native to Iran and northern India. There are many stories and legends surrounding this fruit, and it has been said that Helen of Troy used pomegranates to help make her more beautiful. Those legends all have some truth behind them, because the pomegranate is one of the healthiest fruits on the planet. Here are some of the main benefits you get from eating pomegranates:

  • Has a high level of antioxidants (10,500 on the ORAC Assay)
  • Is rich in vitamin C, A, E and folic acid
  • Reduces plaque in arteries and raises the levels of good cholesterol
  • Prevents enzymes from damaging cartilage
  • Fights cancer cells
  • Slows down aging

Those all sound great; now let’s take a look at how Acai stacks up

Acai is a small purple berry that is native to the Amazon Rainforests. It is a staple for the native people, and has recently exploded in popularity around the world. It has an amazing flavor that is similar to a mix of chocolate and berries. Here is a look at what type of benefits you can get from Acai:

  • Has a high level of antioxidants (18,400 on the ORAC Assay)
  • Is a great source for essential fatty acids
  • Provides a boost of energy similar to coffee (without caffeine)
  • Fights cancer cells
  • Slows down aging
  • Contains high levels of fiber, amino acids, and Vitamins C, E, and B

Those are some pretty powerful benefits from a little berry, but are it enough to defeat the pomegranate?

And The Winner Is…

In a very close decision I have to give the win to the Acai berry. The determining factor is that Acai has a higher count of antioxidants (18,400 vs 10,500). Many of the benefits derived from these two fruits is based on their antioxidant power, so Acai takes that category hands down. The energy boost is very helpful for almost everyone, so that helps make it the more well-rounded superfood. The only edge pomegranates have is its ability to protect your cartilage and prevent arthritis.

Candida and the Power of Green Superfoods

Candida and SuperfoodsWhen I was having my 3 year stint with candida (and the beginnings of interstitial cystitis) it was not a fun time but I learned alot. At one point I was invited to go to a workshop where a woman who had healed her own breast cancer was speaking about the importance of PH balance. I didn't know much about it and I hadn't made the connection yet but it intrigued me and I went. Turned out it was really fascinating and made sense to me. Ph balance is more important than I thought. I guess you can think about it this way. Swimming pools, if we are not diligent about keeping track of the PH readings, will start to grow ugly nasty bacteria. So will our bodies. If we feed our bodies nothing but acidic foods and thoughts we will create an acidic environment. Yeast, candida, and even cancer cells change in relationship to their environment.

Since I was struggling with candida for so long I decided it would be a good idea to test my PH. I got some PH testing strips and tested my urine and to my horror I couldn't even see a reading! The lowest reading was 5.0 (a healthy body should show a reading around 6.5 – ultimately 7.3). I couldn't see a reading at all. I took it over and over. The saliva reading was somewhat better but I compared mine to others and it was significantly lower and more acidic. This blew me away because I juice everyday so I thought I had it covered. Obviously I didn't have it covered or else I would not have been struggling with candida for so long. I had already changed my diet, I was taking a good probiotic everyday and even using anti-fungals. I didn't think there was anything else I could do.

Well, I had heard and read about green superfoods like chlorella, spirulina, barley grass, wheat grass, oat grass and how they raise PH levels so I decided to experiment. I began by using chlorella and spirulina and then added others and kept track of my PH. It wasn't long (a few days) before I started to notice my interstitial cystitis symptoms fading away. I also noticed my candida symptoms becoming less and less noticable!

This was about a year ago and I have continued to do well. So I maintain a regimen of watching my food, taking a probiotic everyday (though occasionally I forget but it doesn't seem to matter) and I hardly ever seem to need the anti-fungal anymore. I put the green powder in my vegetable juice in the morning and I feel like I'm drinking a glass of "green vitality." It's awesome.

It seems, for me, that this has been the missing link to getting control of candida and interstitial cystitis.

The Top Three Antioxidants

Superfood Number 1 Cocoa PodsOur body needs antioxidants because antioxidants protect our cells against the effects of free radicals. The free radicals are molecules that are produced when our body breaks down food or through environmental exposures like smog, tobacco smoke and radiation. By damaging our cells, free radicals play a major role for our aging process, in heart diseases, cancer and many other diseases. Antioxidants are found in many foods, but mainly in vegetables, berries, fruits, nuts, grains but also in some meat, poultry and fresh fish. Some specific foods that top the the list of antioxidant carriers that contain a lot more antioxidants than the average fruit or vegetable. These are the Top Three Antioxidant Superfoods.

The list of our top three Antioxidant Superfoods goes:

  • Number 3: Red wine Red wine is a rich source of antioxidants called the resveratrol. Resveratrol works by targeting the cancer cell's energy source from within and crippling it. When combine with radiation, resveratrol enhances the effects of radiation chemotherapy cancer treatments. Researcher Paul Okunieff, MD, chief of radiation oncology at the University of Rochester Medical Center has already indicated that resveratrol has a promising future as part of treating cancer.
  • Number 2: Green Tea: Green tea since ancient times has already been used for its medicinal benefits treating everything from headaches to depression. Green tea also lowers cholesterol levels as well improving the ratio between bad and good cholesterol. The secret of Green tea lies in its richness of catechin polyphenols particularly epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). EGCG is a very powerful antioxidant that inhibits growth of cancer cells and also killing cancer cells without harming healthy issues. As much as these two antioxidant really bring a lot of benefits in fighting free radicals. According to researchers at Cornell University one food tops them all and it is cocoa. Cocoa according to the study has already 2 times stronger than red wine, 2-3 times more stronger than green tea and 4 to 5 times more stronger than black tea.
  • Number 1: Cacao: Cacao has been raised to another level, by making it a raw organic superfood. By making it a raw organic superfood Fruity Cacao which comes from whole raw chocolate beans it now has 14 times more antioxidants than red wine and 21 times more than green tea. It is that simple Fruity Cacao tops the list and has more antioxidant power so far. No one could have imagine that cocoa, chocolate could be so beneficial but it is happening now. Raw organic superfood Fruity Cacao is making it happen.

So, now that we have concluded our talk about antioxidants. Now we know what's the top three. It is time to get healthy and start getting rid of those free radicals in our body.
