Acai bowls have been blowing up Instagram feeds for years now, and with good reason. Not only do they look good, they taste amazing—all while giving you a serious dose of produce, plus whatever healthy add-ons you put on top. Right? Actually, while acai bowls are good for you in theory, experts point.
Acai berries are a small fruit harvested from acai palm trees, which are mostly native to northern South America. Acai berries themselves resemble grapes and are actually quite low in sugar, containing close to 0 grams per 100-gram serving.
Acai berries have Anti-Aging Effects. Extremely high in many forms of phytochemicals, acai berries may slow or reverse aging processes as they relate to oxidative damage. In fact, the berries are one of the best sources of antioxidants; one berry has ten times as many antioxidants as grapes and twice as many as blueberries.
Good for diabetics
Acai has a low score on the glycemic index, which is good news for people with diabetes. It also has low lipid levels. An acai juice can be a healthy option to maintain steady glucose levels.
Improves immune system
Studies have shown that certain compounds in acai—namely the polyphenolic compound—can help to reduce the development of malfunctioning cells by 86%. Although not a treatment or cure yet, further research is being carried out in relation to polyphenolic compound extracts taken from acai and reduction in tumor growth.
Acai has extremely high antioxidant levels, making it great for overall skin care. The oil extract from acai can be used on the skin to cleanse and moisturize as an alternative to chemical products.
