Acai Berry Makes #1 Super Food on Oprah's List

For such a little fruit, Acai berry packs a lot of punch. The Amazonian fruit has caught the attention of health nuts everywhere for its amazing health benefits. It's even made Oprah's list of super foods, according to her website.

Lancaster, PA (PRWEB) November 26, 2008 -- For such a tiny purple fruit, the Acai berry sure is making big waves in the health and diet industry. The Amazonian super fruit has been featured in several news reports and on several shows, the most notable being the Oprah Winfrey Show. The berry is being lauded as one of the most potently healthy foods on the planet by Dr. Perricone on Oprah's website.

Acai berries, found mostly in the rain forests of Brazil and other South and Central American countries, are jam packed with 10 times more antioxidants than red grapes and over 20 times the anthocyanins (a type of antioxidant) than red wine. Antioxidants are one of the biggest defenses the body has against premature aging. In other words, adding Acai to your diet can help combat signs of premature aging, keeping hair and skin looking healthy for longer.

Within its tiny purple exterior, the Acai berry also contains several healthy types of monounsaturated fats, dietary fiber and protein to help promote digestive and cardiovascular health. Also found within the berry are essential amino acids, vitamins, and valuable trace minerals which can all help muscle contraction and regeneration, according to Dr. Perricone.

Acai products can be purchased easily in health food stores or across the internet. Consumers should, however, be wary of imitation products and do their research before committing to a purchase. You can get Acai in both liquid and powder form, but Dr. Perricone suggests using the unsweetened pulp, which is now available for purchase, since it is the true source of the berry's health benefits., a new website all about Acai berries, is dedicated to scouring the world wide web to bring consumers everything they need to know about the fruit. While many people talk as though Acai is a 'miracle fruit' there has been little actual testing done by the FDA. The goal of is to bring both the truth and the myths of the berry to light, making sure consumers are as informed as possible before making a decision to add Acai to their diet.
