Brains on Nutrition: What's So Great About Acai?

Brains on Nutrition: If Oprah and Dr. Perricone says the acai berry is good for your, then it has to be good for you, doesn't it? Not always, but there is lots of science to back acai as one of the top 10 superfoods and a brain booster.

What's so great about acai?

Acai, which is commonly pronounced a-sigh-ee, is a high energy berry of a special Amazon palm tree. Acai boasts 10 times the antioxidant benefits of grapes and twice that of blueberries. With it's remarkable concentration of antioxidants and its almost perfect essential amino acid in conjunction with trace minerals, acai is brains on nutrition.

Whether you are an athlete, someone suffering from a neurological or muscular disease, or a baby boomer trying to combat premature aging, acai promotes cardiovascular heath, digestive health, is vital to proper muscle contraction and regeneration, and aids in the production of new neurons.

For me, the greatest thing about acai is the production of new neurons. Since being diagnosed with a multitude of ailments and finding no relief with traditional or alternative medicines, I went on a campaign to produce new neurons.

My daily campaign includes a homemade acai smoothie, daily exercise, reading, visiting with friends or relatives, going to movies or restaurants, and going on an excursion with my camera in hand, activities which have been backed by research to promote new neurons.

Many friends and readers have reported tremendous success stories after a months' use of MonaVie, whose main ingredient is the acai berry but also contains the fruits of pomegranate, white grape, apple, acerola, pear, aronia, purple grape, cranberry, passionfruit, banana, apricot, prune, kiwi, blueberry, bilberry, camu camu, wolfberry, and lychee.

You can also find MonaVie-like products at Sam's Club, Whole Foods, and health food stores for about half the price.

Ideally combining nutrition, physical exercise, learning and social interaction, help us build new neurons, and the earlier we start building, the better; but it is never too late to start. And, the more activities, the better: the effect is cumulative.

Let us know if you have had any experience with the acai berry.

I confess, I am by nature a sceptic and a pessimist. I also have hypermobility syndrome, a condition in which many of my joints move beyond the normal range of motion, and I've developed arthritis in those joints. Constant pain is a result. When my (eternal optimist) husband brought home a bottle of Mona Vie, spouting facts about the acai berry, I thought it was a scam, but I must admit that after two months, I notice a big difference. This is not an arthritis cure by any means, but along with a diet high in vegetables & fiber and lots of walking, my pain level is reduced and my energy level is higher. Those little berries are powerful stuff!

I tired one bottle, but was a bit nervous about the sales pitch. The person I bought the bottle from was so enthusiastic, but kept pushing me to come to a meeting. I decided that the "wonder" berry would have to wait.
