Açai is an essential superfood of our Javazen Boost blend.
What is Açai?
Açai is a reddish-purple fruit that grows on palm trees deep within the lush tropical region of the Amazon Rainforest of Brazil.
One of the most biodiverse regions on the planet, the Amazon is home to one-third of all plant and animal species in the world. The açai berry becomes very resilient by growing in such a biodiverse environment. This is one of the main reasons for its amazingly high levels of antioxidants.
Why we use Açai
Polyphenols, anthocyanins, and flavonoids are just a few of the immune boosting compounds found in this inch-long, reddish-purple berry. Not only is açai known for its profound antioxidant levels, it also nourishes the body and mind with essential amino acids, healthy fats, and dietary fiber.Fun Fact: Açai must be freeze dried within 24 hours of harvesting to keep its nutritional profile intact.
