The Acai berry is similar to that of a grape and a blueberry. These small, reddish-purple berries consisting of a cluster of seeds, are harvested from tall palm trees found around the Amazon River basin of South America.
This anti-inflammatory superfood is said to contain even richer protective antioxidants than cranberries, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries, blueberries and even the goji berry. On top of this, acai berries are believed to help control appetite, balance hormones, increase energy, prevent heart disease and help with many metabolic functions.
Acai berry is useful for preventing early signs of aging and helping with skin regeneration. Many beauty products contain acai oil for its high antioxidant content. For millenia, people have used antioxidant-rich foods and herbal treatments, including acai, both topically and internally to prevent skin degradation and keep skin resilient and healthy looking.
