Good News! Acai Berries on the Oprah Winfrey Show

Meanwhile we all have heard about the Acai Berry, the superfood and wonder food for weight loss. Acai Berries on the Oprah Winfrey ShowThe Acai berry was probably the first Superfood to be introduced to most of North America through the Oprah Winfrey Show and her millions of viewers by Dr. Nicolas Perricone. During an episode of Oprah's show, she asked Dr. Perricone to discuss his top ten superfoods. The number one superfood on his list was the Acai berry. The Acai berry comes from the Amazon in Brazil. Dr. Perricone first put forth the amazing properties of the Acai berry in his book The Perricone Promise, a book Oprah highly recommends. This was the first time many in North America have heard about Acai berries, a fruit that has meanwhile grown a reputation to be a wonderfood for weight loss. Acaí berries taste much like a blend of berries and chocolate. Acaí berries are full of amino acids, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids (that's the good fat). And that's in Acai berries:

  • An enormous concentration of antioxidants helping to combat premature aging. Acai contains 10 times more antioxidants than red grapes and 10 to 30 times the anthocyanins than red wine.
  • An excellent composition of mono-unsaturated fats, dietary fiber and phytosterols which helps to promote cardiovascular and digestive health.
  • An almost perfect essential amino acid complex in conjunction with valuable trace minerals, important for good muscle contraction and regeneration of muscles.

NB. Acai berries lose much of their nutritional benefits very quickly after they being picked, so for the best nutritional content, make sure you buy Acai berries that have been freeze dried as close to the natural source as possible. Studies have shown that freeze-dried Acai Berries have the highest level of antioxidants and nutrition, much higher than its juice or its equivalent amount in raw form.
