The acai (pronounced Ah-Sa-E) palm tree, Euterpe oleracea, is found in Central and south America and is most plentiful in Brazil, particularly in the flood plains of the Amazon. For centuries, acai, which traslates to "fruit that cries," has been included in the diets of the Amazon's native peoples.
The dark purple or reddish-purple fruit from the acai tree has generated a great deal of interest. Recent studies have shown that acai fruit possesses naturally high concentrations of antioxidants known as polyphenols, including anthocyanins, proanthocyanidins, and other flavonoids.
Anthocyanins are a group of phytochemical pigments that give deep color to fruits and vegetables, including acai berries, and are naturally high in antioxidant value. The major anthocyanins in both acai juic and freeze-dried berries are cyanidin 3-glucoside and cyanidin 3-tutinoside.
Studies indicate that acai's antioxidant properties protect against oxidative stress, which negatively impacts many aspects of healthy, including the immune system, cardiovascular health, and aging. Research also suggest that these attributes of polyphenols may help support vascular health.
