Açaí Frozen Pulps are certified organic and follow the most demanding quality standards.

According to studies, açaí berries also contain some other trace minerals, including chromium, zinc, iron, copper, manganese, magnesium, potassium and phosphorus. But some of acai’s most powerful health benefits come from plant compounds.

Antioxidants and Açaí Purple Color 

The most notable nutritionally value of the açaí berry are the anthocyanins, which give acaí berries their deep purple color and act as antioxidants in the body.

You can also find anthocyanins in other blue, black and purple foods, such as black beans and blueberries.

2. Açaí is a riche Source of Antioxidants

The power of the Antixidants

Antioxidants neutralize the damaging effects of free radicals throughout the body.

If free radicals are not neutralized by antioxidants, they can damage cells and lead to a number of diseases, including diabetes, cancer and heart disease. Açaí berries have an incredibly high amount of antioxidants, edging out other antioxidant-rich fruits like blueberries and cranberries.

The antioxidant content of foods is typically measured by an Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) score. In the case of Açaí, 100 grams of frozen pulp has an ORAC of 15,405, whereas the same amount of blueberries has a score of 4,669 (4).

This antioxidant activity comes from a number of plant compounds in açaí, including anthocyanins. In 2008, researchers gave 12 fasting volunteers acai pulp, Açaí juice, applesauce or a drink with no antioxidants at four different times and then tested their blood for antioxidants.

Both the Açaí pulp and applesauce raised participants’ antioxidant levels, which means that the antioxidant compounds in Açaí are well-absorbed in the gut. It also indicates that Açaí pulp is a better source of antioxidants than Açaí juice.

"Açaí is filled with antioxidants" said the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry in 2008). "It contains a high content of polyphenolic compounds such as resveratrol, anthocyanidin, ferulic acid, delphinidin and petunidin; and it also contains tannins such as epicatechin and ellagic acid.

Antioxidants help reduce the risk of cancer, degenerative diseases and premature aging," says the nutritionist Tamara Mazaracki.

3. Açaí may improve Cholesterol Levels

Açaí is one of the most nutritionally dense super foods

Animal studies have suggested that Açaí could help improve cholesterol levels by decreasing total and LDL cholesterol.

It is possible that it could have a similar effect in humans. A 2011 study had 10 overweight adults eat Açaí smoothies twice daily for one month. Overall, they had lower total and “bad” LDL cholesterol at the end of the study.

However, there were a few drawbacks to this study. It was small, had no control group and received its funding from a primary supplier of Açaí.

While more research is needed, it’s possible that the anthocyanin in Açaí could be responsible for their positive impact on cholesterol levels, since studies have linked this plant compound to improvements in HDL and LDL cholesterol.
In addition, Açaí contains plant sterols, which prevent cholesterol from being absorbed by your body.

4. Possible anti-cancer effect

While no one food is a magic shield against cancer, some foods are known to stop cancer cells from forming and spreading. Both test-tube and animal studies have revealed this sort of anti-cancer effect in Açaí.

In mice, Açaí pulp has reduced the incidence of colon and bladder cancer.  However, a second study in mice found that it had no effect on stomach cancer. Researchers have concluded that açaí could have a role in treating cancer in the future, yet more research is needed, including in humans

5. Boost brain function

The many plant compounds in Açaí could also protect your brain from damage as you age. Several studies have shown this kind of protective effect in lab rats. The antioxidants in acai counteract the damaging effects of inflammation and oxidation in brain cells, which can negatively affect memory and learning. In one study, açaí  even helped improve memory in aging rats. 

One of the ways in which the brain stays healthy is by cleaning up cells that are toxic or no longer working, a process known as autophagy. It makes way for new nerves to form, enhancing communication between brain cells. As you age, this process works less efficiently. However, in lab tests, açaí  extract has helped stimulate this “housekeeping” response in brain cells.

"It provides a large amount of energy and to favor the muscle contraction (which includes cardiac function) and bone health, açaí is extremely recommended for those who practice physical activity", says the nutritionist Cyntia Maureen.

    Açaí is more than a super fruit, it is part of Amazon culture. There is a myth from an Amazon indigenous tribe that says the magical berry was sent by god Tupã during a hard time to feed the tribe, after that all tribes in the Amazon started to include Açaí in their diets. More details about the local Açaí culture and its importance you can find in another session Açaí Culture Besides the myth, nowadays the true is that economically it has helped more and more local communities in the Amazon region. The Açaí commerce in 2019 registered a market size of US 720 million and following the forecast to 2025 it should achieve around US 2.1 billions, as much as the consuming of Açaí increases. For Açaímazon It is just a matter of time once year after year people all around the world have discovered Açaí's benefits. The Açaímazon accept the challenge to spread healthy, distributing this amazing super fruit in any place where there is a new demand. We are the first company to see Açaí berries as a healing for the Amazon rainforest by itself, beyond that, we see it as a great tool to prevent world food crisis and climate changes. Many studies and projects have been made over decades through Embrapa to define the best way to attend the growing global demand with the minimum impact to the biodiversity, the conclusion was that is needed to limit the number of Açaí palms per hectare in native areas, to avoid monocultures and to keep the efficiency in terms of berries quality, the technique is called "minimal impact management". However, the Açaí palms nativity placed in areas called "varzea", naturally irrigated by the river every each 6 hours, it just provides good berries's harvest from June to September every year, that's another challenge to attend the global demand. The researchers then concluded that Açaí palms needed to migrate to firm ground, where attended by an efficient irrigation system and surrounded by the right biodiversity agents, it can provides good berries's harvest during the whole year and even bigger production than the native Açaí palms. On that way, Açaímazon has the vision that the Açaí palms in firm ground, recovering degraded areas, it can also represent a CO2 farm generating carbon credits to be commercialized in the growing carbon credits market or even to be applied to reduce the CO2 footprint caused by Açaí transportation around the world.
