Acai Berry アサイベリー


Acai berries
 are small, circular berries that come from the acai palm tree.

Their delicious juice has an enticing, deep-purple color.

A single cup (240 ml) of acai berry juice provides:

  • Calories: 91
  • Protein: 1 gram
  • Carbs: 13 grams
  • Fiber: 2 grams
  • Sugar: 9 grams

Given that it has only gained popularity recently, nutritional data for this juice is limited. Still, the fruit’s antioxidant content has been widely studied.

Acai juice is rich in various antioxidants, particularly flavonoids, ferulic acid, and chlorogenic acid. A diet rich in these compounds has been associated with a lower risk of heart disease and mental decline .

In fact, acai berries contain significantly more antioxidants than blueberries, which are well known for their disease-fighting compounds.

Finally, a study in 14 participants with osteoarthritis found that drinking an acai-based fruit juice for 12 weeks significantly lowered perceived pain. However, larger studies are needed to better understand this relationship.
