Acai Berry

The acai berry is an inch-long reddish, purple fruit. It comes from the acai palm tree (Euterpe oleracea), which is native to Central and South America. It is a relative of the blueberry, cranberry, and other dark purple fruits. Research on the acai berry has focused on its possible antioxidant activity. Theoretically, that activity may help prevent diseases caused by oxidative stress such as heart disease and cancer.

Acai contains several substances called anthocyanins and flavonoids. Anthocyanins are responsible for the red, purple, and blue hues in many fruits, vegetables, and flowers. Foods that are richest in anthocyanins are strongly colored, ranging from deep purple to black. Anthocyanins and flavonoids are powerful antioxidants that play a role in the body's cell protection system. By lessening the destructive power of free radicals, antioxidants may help reduce the risk of some diseases.

Some studies show that acai fruit pulp has even more antioxidant content than cranberry, raspberry, blackberry, strawberry, or blueberry. People eat acai berries to address various health conditions, but so far, acai berries have no known health benefit that's any different than that of other similar fruits.
