Health Benefits of Acai Berry

The reason acai berry receives so much attention as a health and wellness cure is the unique combination of omega fatty acids, fiber, amino acids and vitamins. All of these nutrients are core components that serve to boost metabolism. Any kind of boost in metabolism can help use many more calories – even at rest. Whether the actual juice, or some of the easier to attain acai supplements, the benefits to health are numerous.

Acai berry benefits also prevent aging. Anti-aging is something I’m very passionate about, and acai berry has the world’s highest antioxidant value of any food. Antioxidants minimize damage to cells from free radicals, and antioxidants also prevent the effects of aging caused by oxidative stress due to normal bodily function, such as weight training, or muscle strain. External causes of aging such as sun damage, pesticides, pollutants, and cigarette smoke can have negative effects on the tone, firmness and aging of skin. Acai berry benefits of concentrating high antioxidant levels help to reduce and prevent these negatives and the deterioration of your skin.

It is interesting to note that acai berry strengthen the immune system, which protects us against diseases and pathogens like viruses, bacteria and parasites through the use of acai’s natural mechanisms such as enzymes, healthy bacteria, proteins, and natural nutrients. The abundance of antioxidants and other nutrients in the berry help to bolster the immune system and keep you healthier and feeling great everyday.

The right combination of nutrients eaten at regular intervals will help keep energy levels high. The high concentration of carbohydrates, proteins and healthy fats in acai help fuel activity, while the high concentration of fiber helps to regulate blood sugar levels and keeps energy levels higher for longer as a result. Taken on a regular basis, all of these acai supplement benefits can be experienced. When your immune system is functioning optimally and warding off infections and disease, there is a subsequent boost in energy due to the body not expending as much energy fighting off infections and viruses.

Due to the increased energy and stamina, acai is considered by many to increase libido.  The concentration of healthy fats helps metabolize cholesterol, and produce testosterone as well as estrogen for women. This of course can benefit the results of our muscle-building efforts as well.
The influence of acai berry benefits is also felt while people sleep. Your ability to sleep can frequently be affected by stressed muscles. Acai contains amino acids that help to relax your muscles and allow for a more restful sleep. It also contains B-vitamins which help to regulate the dopamine and serotonin production in the brain, and directly affects the ease and quality of sleep.

Happy Lifting!

      Check out the Health Designs site (banner upper right). They have many, and are a great source for cheap supplements/protein powder etc. I order my supplements and protein powder. Life doesn’t allow me the luxury of shopping anymore!
