Health Benefits of Acai Berry

Acai Berry Can Fight Cancer and Other Diseases

Acai berry is rich in antioxidants, more than blue berries, oranges and other herbal supplements. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals in body. Free radicals are produced naturally in human body by the immune system and metabolism. They fight harmful bacteria and viruses. Problem arises when production of free radicals is excessive in body and other environmental factors like pollution, pesticides, radiation and cigarette smoke also contribute their share of free radicals. One free radical leads to other, triggering chain reaction and damaging cells. Antioxidants are very important to neutralize and balance free radicals in the body. Most important are Vitamin C and Vitamin E. Free radicals can cause diseases like cancer, arthritis, atherosclerosis, Alzheimer's disease, and diabetes and even harm DNA. Antioxidants are very effective in preventing these diseases and fighting free radicals. Antioxidants from Acai berry are said to kill cancer cells and strengthen life cells. Several studies have shown that Acai berry antioxidants are absorbed by human body and can help fight cancer. Research is still in initial phases, confined to labs only, but they are a sure hope for future.

One of the major benefits of Acai is its high fiber content, very important to maintain good digestive system and metabolism rate. Enzymes and nutrients of Acai berry help maintain a healthy digestive system, free from hyperacidity, acid reflux, indigestion and other troubles.   

Acai Berry Improves Eye Sight

Acai berry is rich in antioxidants called anthocyanins, proved to improve eye sight. They relieve eye strain and aid in vision, especially in dim light. Our eyes are subjected to harmful radiations from computer monitors for several hours a day. Antioxidants in Acai berry can help relax eyes and reduce the harmful effects of these radiations. Antioxidants fight free radicals and prevent damage to retina. They can also prevent eye related diseases like glaucoma, night blindness and macular degeneration. Anthocyanosides also reduce inflammation of eye capillaries, ensuring proper blood and oxygen supply to eyes. Retinopathy is also reduced.

Acai Berry Relaxes Muscles and Aids in Sound Sleep

Acai berry can be very helpful in insomnia. Biggest difficulty in sound sleep is mental and muscle stress. Two neurotransmitters, the dopamine and serotonin, affect our sleep.  Acai berry’s vitamin B relaxes and regulates these neurotransmitters, resulting in good and stress free sleep. Amino acids, protein and Omega fatty acids also de-stress muscles and ensure you get a good night sleep, to feel fresh and energized next morning. Acai berry can help people get over sleeping pills and antidepressants.
