It seems like this particular product is all over the market today. Everything from quick weight loss to younger looking skin is associated with this particular fruit. The acai berry comes from the acai palm trees found in Central and South America. Recent research confirms that this particular fruit does offer numerous health benefits. One of its major benefits comes from the product’s antioxidant properties.

The acai berry is extremely rich in antioxidants. Some of its most active agents include Anthocyanins and Flavonoids. These two antioxidants protect the body from cell damage, certain diseases and aging. What the acai berry does is it neutralizes free radicals which cause oxidative stress. Everyone knows that oxidative stress caused by free radicals can lead to heart disease and cancer; antioxidants help us fight these free radicals before they cause too much damage. Free radicals are also held somewhat responsible for our aging process which is why one of the best ways to fight aging is with antioxidants. Any product that is rich in antioxidants can help us improve the appearance of our skin. Not only can you use acai berry infused creams on your skin but you can also achieve additional skin healing benefits by consuming the delicious fruit. How about weight loss? Does the acai berry offer any weight loss benefits?

Well there are currently numerous studies being conducted on this particular fruit and its weight loss properties. As any other fruit, the acai berry is good for weight loss because it is not rich in calories, trans fats, saturated fats, and sugars. However, any specific fat burning abilities of this fruit have not been identified thus far. Even though the acai berry may not offer weight loss benefits, its health attributes are certainly worthy.
