Let's get to know the famous Acai berry better:
"Açaí or juçara is the fruit of the palm tree known as açaizeiro (Euterpe oleracea). It is a native species of the Amazon region that can reach 25 meters in height. Everything is used from the palm tree: fruits (food and handicraft), leaves (coverings) of houses, braids), stipe (roof slats), roots (worming), palm heart (food and anti-hemoragic medicine).
Açaí comes from the Tupi word "iwasa i", which means a fruit that cries, that is, a fruit that expels water.
According to an old Brazilian legend, açaí derives from the inverted name of an Indian woman who guided her tribe, in times of hunger, to the açaí tree, a food that has since been adopted by indigenous populations as a source of nutrition and energy. This is an extremely rich fruit from a nutritional point of view. They contain a high content of mostly mono and polyunsaturated fats. Healthy omega-6 and omega-9 fats are found in açai berries in similar ratios similar to those found in olive oil, helping to lower blood cholesterol levels, helping to prevent cardiovascular disease, and improving the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins. Its high fiber content helps with good intestinal functioning and proves to be useful in solving constipation situations.
The presence of fiber also allows for a reduction in cholesterol levels and a delay in the digestion and absorption of carbohydrates, with the consequent control and balance of blood glucose levels. The presence of natural vitamins A and C, powerful antioxidants, strengthen the immune system and prevent premature aging, also contributing to good skin and eye health.
Açaí berries also contain B-complex vitamins in their composition, involved in countless physiological processes in our body.
The proteins present in this fruit are easily assimilated and have a high biological value. In addition to antioxidant protection, these pigments inhibit platelet aggregation, improve blood circulation and, consequently, enhance cardiovascular health."
