Our Diet Plans vs The Acai Berry

Since before most of us were born, diet plans have been big business and made money for people who could best be described as unscrupulous in many cases. Although by the law of averages some of these plans have worked very well, some have been quite disastrous and looking back we have found that, in some cases, the major effect of a diet plan may be to adversely affect our health, in some cases to the point where it becomes fatal. This has happened on more occasions […]

Maybe We’re Not So Clever

The fact that it has taken so long for the general public in the US, UK and other English speaking countries to discover the benefits of Acai berries raises some interesting questions. Not least of these surrounds the fact that we in the English-speaking parts of the world have a tendency to often think of ourselves as being quite advanced. There is an awful lot of patronising nonsense talked about other countries, where if they should manage to achieve anything beyond poor or average results they are […]

Why “Acai”? The Story Of The Berry

With much of what we eat, and much of what we do, we know very little about the story that has brought it to its present status. OK, sure, so we know – most of us anyway – that hamburgers are so called because they were invented in the German city of Hamburg. But what of the Acai berry? What’s its story?

Acai Berries – History

It is little known by people congratulating themselves for discovering the benefits of the Acai berry, but these little chunks of magic have been freely available and a popular way of getting energy and losing weight for some time.

Acai Berry Tea

As a race of people we have become used to having a hot drink at certain times. For many of us it is the morning cup of coffee, something of a ritual in today’s society not only in the US, the UK and other such nations, but all over the world. There are few things that unite the world in such a way. A hot drink has so many benefits, from the obvious ones like warming you up on a bitterly cold day to more obscure ones, […]

Acai Berries and Energy

It is a common complaint expressed by many people – a lack of energy makes it really hard to get things done, and at any given time many of us are liable to a lack of drive that makes us want to drop what we are doing to grab a nap just to shake of this feeling of torpor. This lack of energy seems resistant to many of the supposed cures – eating something means we have to wait while a lethargic body processes it, and many […]

Acai Berries – A Source of Antioxidants

As we get to know more about the different things that have negative or positive effects on our bodies – and dietary science is a fast-developing field – we start to find out things that we thought we knew are, if not wrong, then incomplete. If you had asked just about anyone what antioxidants were ten years ago, they wouldn’t have known. For that time, and before, we have found ourselves sticking to supposed rules on what was good for us – but in actual fact, we […]

This is an opinion that does not stand up strongly in the face of Acai Berries. It is easy to […]
