BIO Açai powder from Brazil
BIO Açai powder from Brazil
Origin and things worth knowing
Acai powder is a dietary supplement made from the fruit of the acai palm tree (Euterpe oleracea). The palm grows mainly in the Amazon region of Brazil, but also in other parts of South America. The berries, which are about the size of blueberries, have been used as a food source by local people for centuries.
The history of the acai palm tree and its fruit dates back to ancient times, where it was used as an important food and medicine by indigenous peoples in the Amazon. However, over time, acai was also discovered by researchers and scientists studying its healing properties and health benefits.
Acai has been considered a superfood in Europe and the USA since the 1990s.
Acai powder is valued for its high concentration of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and healthy fats. Antioxidants help protect the body from free radicals, which can lead to cell damage and disease. Acai also contains important vitamins and minerals such as vitamins A, C, E, calcium and iron that can contribute to health.
