What makes a fruit ‘super’? It’s the strong concentration of antioxidants, fiber, vitamins, minerals, healthy fats and oils that are important to maintaining our health. The term ‘superfruit’ was created to identify this group of fruits that supply our body with an abundance of nourishment and health benefits, to help us live a healthier, longer life!
Antioxidants in 30 Seconds
The term antioxidant describes the ability of a food or its elements, such as vitamins or minerals, to neutralize free radicals. Free radicals are known to be carcinogenic and damage cells by pulling oxygen away from otherwise healthy cells. They result from normal chemical reactions within our bodies. Antioxidants are able to supply free radicals the oxygen they seek as an alternative and can save cells from free radical damage.
Acai is considered a superfruit because it has an extremely high concentration of antioxidants, fiber, vitamins, minerals, healthy fats, and oils that are important to maintaining health and may actually help slow the aging process.
Our favorite purple berries rank in the top 10 of all foods, respective to the anti-oxidant value - the darker the purple, the better. In addition to the high nutritional value, we believe that they are super because of what they lack - sugar!
Did you know that the Acai berry pigments that make up their stunning purple color contain natural plant chemicals called anthocyanins?
The Guarana berry is another native, naturally sugar-free, Brazilian superfruit. The nutritional benefits of this berry reside in its seeds. Guarana can be very difficult to find and is usually only found in the form of powder which is made from the seeds of the berry.
Guarana seed powder is physically and mentally energizing because it contains caffeine. The caffeine in Guarana, however, is metabolized very differently than caffeine in coffee because it also contains tannins, similar to those found in wines. These tannins significantly slow metabolism of the caffeine in our bodies, effectively providing much longer and more sustained energy in comparison to caffeine in coffee beans or tea leafs. For this reason, consumption of Guarana provides energy without the spike and notorious crash from coffee.
Fact: A regular sized Acai bowl with Guarana typically contains less caffeine than half of a cup of coffee.
A dragon fruit also known as pitaya is a type of cactus plant originally indigenous to Mexico and is now grown in tropical areas around the world. The sweet dragon fruit plants can have red or white flesh and can be pink, red or yellow-skinned.
Our dragon fruit products are made using the red-skinned and red-fleshed dragon fruit. Our dragon fruit is rich in Folate (Vitamin B-9), Iron, Magnesium, Calcium, and Potassium. These are five of the seven most common nutrient deficiencies in the United States.
