I’ve been hearing about acai (pronounce ahsawyee) berry and all of its great qualities for years. Since I kept hearing so much about it, I decided to try it. I didn’t try a much healthier form of the herb, like a tea or an herbal supplement, as I normally would. However, I did try some delicious dark chocolate-covered acai berries that were quite delectable. While I probably didn’t get much nutritional benefit from this snack, I must admit that they were tasty. But in the near future, I plan to try this herb for its much more health-related benefits. Here are a few benefits of using this herb and its supplements.
They Have Plenty of Antioxidents
One of the great benefits of acai berries is that they have loads of antioxidants, even more than blueberries and cranberries. Antioxidants can be helpful in fighting off diabetes, cancer, and heart disease. Besides these life-threatening diseases, one reason I like foods such as this that are high in antioxidants is that it helps improve the skin and fight against aging.
Acai Can Help With Cholesterol
Another reason I like this berry is that it can help lower cholesterol by lowering LDL. As you all may know from previous blog articles, this is something that I struggle with. However, I have been keeping my eye on it and doing all that I can to keep my cholesterol levels low. Acai is one way that can help.
They Can Help With Brain Function
You all may know that I like to use herbs that help with brain function since I mentioned gotu kola once on the blog. I typically drink this as a tea occasionally, but I have also used concentrated drops. Like gotu kola, acai can help improve brain function, particularly your memory.
