Our Acai is a 100% Acai base. Almost all Acai bowls you get in and around ASU in Tempe Arizona blends the Acai with ice to provide the texture that is delivered. We use a freezing chamber in a froyo machine to provide the benefit of 100% berry mixture, not watered down with ice as they all do. What does that mean, our $8 bowl would cost you $16 at their establishment to get all the anti-oxidants in our bowl because we do not use ice! Want a reduced calorie bowl, skip the granola and honey!
Acai berries are loaded with vital vitamins and minerals that help build a healthier body, flush out toxins, and boost the immune system. Acai berries are rich in antioxidants that play a vital role in maintaining the overall health. These antioxidants slow down the rate of oxidative damage by free radicals. Acai berries are high in antioxidants that help neutralize free radicals to prevent damage to your cells. Test-tube studies show that acai berries are especially high in plant compounds known as anthocyanins, including specific types like cyanidin 3-glucoside and cyanidin 3-rutinoside. In one study, consuming acai pulp and applesauce increased levels of antioxidants in the blood in 12 healthy adults within 24 hours. Human and animal studies suggest that acai berries could be linked to lower cholesterol levels, better brain function, and decreased colon cancer cell growth due to this antioxidant content. Acai berries contain a significant amount of fats, but most of it is in the form of healthy fats. They help reduce bad cholesterol and increase good cholesterol in the body and also aid weight loss
