Acai Berries Reduce Inflammation

Inflammation increases your risk of heart disease, asthma, allergies, fibromyalgia, arthritis, endometriosis and other such issues. Inflammation is related to obesity. Fat cells promote inflammation, which lead to more fat cells, which promotes more inflammation.

Acai berries are nutritional powerhouses that have been eaten for thousands of years by tribes in the Amazon rainforest. They are often referred to as ‘super-fruits’ thanks to their high antioxidant content, fibre and beneficial balance of omega-3 essential fatty acids and the same monounsaturated fats that are found in olive oil. Used as a weight loss aid, its main benefit comes from its ability to boost blood levels of antioxidants, to reduce the inflammation associated with being overweight, and its ability to slow the harmful rise in blood sugar that occurs after a meal. This may help to reduce the blood glucose swings associated with hunger, though more research is needed to confirm this. The antioxidant anthocyanin, which is abundant in acai berries, may lower oxidative stress and inflammation, promoting brain health.
