What is Acai?
Pronounced Ah-SI-EE

“Açai’s naturally low-glycemic and its dark purple color comes from a super high antioxidant source of polyphenols and flavonoids (the kind in red wine). Stack that with healthy fats (monosaturated and polyunsaturated), protein, fiber, and a smattering of both trace minerals and essential nutrients, and you’ve got one of the healthiest foods on the planet.” Sambazon

“Açai’s a humble little berry from the Amazon packed with wild amounts of nutrition. So much so that, for centuries, indigenous cultures lived off the naturally perfect combo of antioxidants, healthy omegas, and super low sugars” Sambazon
