Havent Heard of the Acai Berry Yet?


You've probably been eating blueberries since you were a little kid. Maybe you've had huckleberries too, which are a little harder to find since they're hand-picked in the wild. (They're not easily cultivated.) But are those the only small, dark berries?

The answer is no! There's an even more coveted berry called the acai (ah-sigh-ee) and it comes only from the rainforest. So it's no surprise that is not that well-known here in the USA. But... it is starting to gain popularity, so keep your eyes out!

But what's so great about this little berry?

Well, did you know that 70% of the plants found to fight against cancer cells are found in the rainforest? Yep, there's all kinds of healthy food in there. Some people refer to the acai as one of the planet's "best kept health secrets." (I've also heard that native Brazilians call it the "Viagra of the Amazon.)

Put simply, the acai berry is full of potent antioxidants and other substances to promote good health and well-being. (Ever heard of having a glass of red wine with dinner? It's for the antioxidants.)

Here are just some of the things the acai berry can do:

--Boost energy levels almost instantly

--Increase mental clarity

--Slow the aging process

There are many more health benefits, but these are a few that I have noticed myself.

With the aging baby boomer population, it's no wonder why the wellness industry is booming too. If you search Google for "acai" you'll find plenty of results.

The one product I can recommend (from personal experience) is called Fruta Vida. It's a concentrated juice which contains acai extract, Cupuacu, and Yerba Mate. (Cupuacu and Yerba Mate are also very healthy plants from the rainforest.) Click here for more information on Fruta Vida.

(This stuff is also part of a network marketing opportunity, kind of like Mary Kay cosmetics. If you check out the site, you'll find information about the product and the business opportunity.)
