Freeze dried acai powder can be easily incorporated into your daily diet by adding it to juices, smoothies, yoghurts, ice creams and energy bars, and is a simple way to gain the many health benefits of naturally occurring antioxidants as well as a vast range of vitamins and minerals at high concentrations.
Acai is renowned for its antioxidant properties. When the body uses oxygen in natural metabolic processes to produce energy, damaging by-products are made. These are called reactive oxygen species (ROS) and are highly reactive molecules with an uneven number of electrons, which bind to healthy cells removing one of their electrons and creating damaging free radicals. These free radicals are very reactive and will bind to the nearest molecule, taking an electron and producing another unstable free radical, causing a destructive chain reaction within the cell. This free radical damage is known as “oxidative stress” and can cause permanent damage to the DNA and cell death, contributing to the development of conditions such as heart disease, arthritis, Alzheimer disease and some forms of cancer.
