Acai Berry Extract
The predominant beneficial
substances in the acai berry are polyphenols, flavonoids, mostly of the
anthocyanins and proanthocyanidins categories.
The dark purple skin of
the acai berry has many times the anthocyanin content as red wine. The
acai berry has shown powerful anti-oxidant properties and also contains
two essential fatty acids known as Omega 6 (Linoleic Acid) and Omega 9
Research shows that Omega 6 helps lower LDL, which is
the harmful cholesterol. Omega 9 fatty acids also assist in lowering
LDL while assisting in maintaining HDL (beneficial cholesterol) levels.
