According to data from the USDA, the Acai berries ORAC value (antioxidant capabilities) is 200-750% higher then any other fruit or vegetable. Science has linked Free Radicals as forces to such diseases as, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, aging, and many more.
“Don’t underestimate the threat free radicals pose to our health. Scientists now believe that free radicals are casual factors in nearly every known disease, from heart disease to arthritis to cancer to cataracts. In fact, free radicals are a major culprit in the aging process itself. By controlling freeradicals, anti-oxidants can make the difference between life and death, as well as influence how fast and how well we age”
A quote from Lester Packer, Head of Packer Laboratory -Dept. of Molecular and Cell Biology from, The University of Calf. at Berkeley.
So the evidence of what free radicals can do is now a fact, proven by modern science. Also proven is the fact that antioxidants are the solution to controlling and eliminating them, and preventing the damage they do to our bodies.
What are free radicals and healthy cells
Cells are made up of many atoms. When these atoms are healthy, they make an exact copy of themselves to keep the body healthy. What makes a healthy atom is the fact they have paired (2) electrons. Free radicals are atoms that only have one (1) electron. They go around stealing electrons from healthy cells, thus destroying and damaging them. When these damaged cells replicate, they make an exact copy of an un-healthy cell, thus leading to disease and premature aging.
Why not all supplements are created equal
Just because you take a supplement, does not mean that you will receive all the benefits of that supplement. Because the Acai berry can start to lose its potency within 24 hours of harvest, it needs to be processed in some way, immediately.
The freeze dried process is one of the most effective ways to capture all the qualities and potency. When this method is used properly, your cells receive all the nutritional benefits of the Acai berry. This can have a dramatic and positive effect on your body. If not done correctly, you are missing out on the health benefits, as well as wasting you hard earned money.
Whatever natural supplement you choose, be sure that it is easily absorbed by your body. Some supplements, in a pill or capsule form, can travel through the entire digestive system, and still be undissolved when the reach the colon. If they reach the colon in the undissolved state, your body can no longer realize the benefits, they are wasted along with your money. Be sure they are easily absorbed, and in the correct quantities for your body.
Through modern science, we know that almost all known diseases and ailments are a direct result of what we are feeding, or not feeding are bodies. Don’t under estimate the importance of natural health supplements have in repairing and maintaining our cells for a healthier you!
