What is Açai?

You’ve probably seen or heard of açai at one point or another, especially with its growing popularity due to its power and taste. Though it’s not something we typically walk into the grocery store and buy. So what is it? 

First thing’s first, how the heck do you even say that??? Well, its pronounced (ah-sah-ee). Açai is a berry that is found on açai palm trees in the south American rain forests. It’s packed full of fiber, antioxidants, calcium, & heart healthy fats. So what does that mean?

Well calcium keeps your heart, bones, nerves, and muscles strong. 

Think of antioxidants as little soldiers building your immune system helping you defend yourself against attacks. 

The heart healthy fats help reduce cholesterol and lower your risk for heart disease. 

The fiber helps you fight cravings, keeps your bowels regular, and helps regulate blood sugar. 

Seems like a win/win! You can eat açai bowls as a meal, dessert, or snack and not feel guilty about it.
