Spotlight On: The Goodness of Açai – Cali Press

One of the biggest superfoods to explode into the health food scene is açai. Pronounced (Ah-sah-ee) it is packed full of health promoting nutrients, some of which are extremely well known for their super high antioxidant levels. Along with the discovery of this awesome superfood also came the discovery of a long list of very unique nutrients that were previously unknown to western scientists.

1. History

Originally found in the Amazon, the açai berry has been used by Amazon tribes for centuries to treat a variety of conditions. While western discovery of the properties of this miraculous berry is relatively new, some Amazon tribes have enjoyed the medicinal benefits of açai in their diets for years. The indigenous founders learned that by digesting the açai berry frequently, their immune system improved, they were sick less often, they had higher energy levels and they managed to fight off numerous medical conditions. The more they took, the more the benefits they discovered this amazing berry had to offer.
