Super Palm of the Amazon
Native to the tropical floodplains of Central and South America, acai berries grow on tall palm trees extending up to 25 feet high, which are climbed and harvested by hand. Acai has enjoyed a long history of popularity extending thousands of years: from ancient Amazonian tribes using it medicinally, to modern Brazilian surf cultures prizing acai as an excellent energy food. Navitas Naturals offers this superfood in a convenient freeze-dried whole berry powder.
The Power of Acai
Nutritionally, acai is considered a true antioxidant powerhouse, and is loaded with healthy monosaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids. The berries also possess many other micronutrient including polyphenols and flavonoids.
In addition to its stunning color, Navitas Naturals’ Acai Power lends a delightfully rich and creamy texture, and offers an unsweetened mild flavor that hints of chocolate and berries. It’s an instant hit when scooped into to a smoothie or milkshake, stirred into yogurt sprinkled with granola, or whisked into a favorite dessert recipe.
