The Acai Berry, pronounced ah-sigh-ee, is harvested in the rain forests of Brazil from a special amazon palm tree. Acai Berry has a unique taste of berry and chocolate. It looks like a purple marble or grape. Finding the Acai Berry in the form of juice may be difficult to find in your local supermarket, but your health food store should carry some form of the Acai Berry. You could always search the Internet for Acai Berry.

1) PROTECT CELLS
Acai Berry complex protects the body's cells from pathogens, antigens and carcinogens. The body recognizes these nutrients and adapts them to protect and strengthen the immune system.
2) SCAVENGES FOR FREE RADICALS
Antioxidants inhibit oxidative damage. "Scientists now believe the free radicals are causal factors in nearly every known disease, from heart disease to arthritis to cancer and cataracts. In fact, free radicals are a major culprit in the aging process itself". Lester Packer, PhD, The Antioxidant Miracle
3) STRENGTHENS CELL MEMBRANE
Allows blood/brain barrier transmission while strengthening cell membranes. All cell membranes need to protect against the unwanted entrance of pathogens.
4) BUILDS PROTEINS
The body needs to assimilate amino acids into protein (our cellular building blocks) and this juice delivers an array of amino acids.
5) RESTORES ANTIOXIDANT NUMBER
Many antioxidants become weakened or are destroyed (i.e., vitamins C and E) but powerful antioxidants repair and strengthen the whole antioxidant network
6) STRENGTHENS IMMUNE SYSTEM
The immune system is under attack~ it is overworked. Powerful free radical scavengers help strengthen the lymphocytes and leukocytes, helping the communication process, thereby helping the body rid itself of these pathogens.
7) ENHANCES CELLULAR COMMUNICATION
It is vital for cells to communicate properly. Healthy sugars and polysaccharides are essential.
8) HELPS REDUCE RISK OF CANCER
Antioxidants neutralize free radicals before they can damage cellular DNA, a crucial step in the formation of cancer and tumor cells.
