Our Acai Powder is 100% natural and comes direct from the Amazonian rainforest in Brazil. The Acai (pronounced ah-sigh-ee) berry is one of the most antioxidant rich superfoods available and was made famous as one of Oprah's top 10 superfoods. NBC's Matt Lauer did its reputation no harm when he called the Acai berry "Amazon's Viagra"!
Many of our customers mix Acai Powder with water or juice, but because our Acai Powder doesn't contain any additives or carriers, it doesn't dissolve well in water. So, for best results we suggest mixing it with a smoothie or yogurt.
The vast flood plains of the Amazon rainforest hold many secrets, but in the last few years one traditional Amazonian tribal secret has made its way to the Western world. Found in the lush flood plains of the Amazon in Brazil, the fruit of the Acai Palm tree is a dark purple berry about the size of a blueberry or a grape. This little fruit, with a pleasant yet unique taste, is one of the world's most nutritious foods as it is packed with antioxidants, amino acids and essential fatty acids.
The properties of the acai berry were kept secret for thousands of years; mainly due to the fact that the raw fruit needs to be consumed within 24 hours of picking. Recent innovations in the picking and freeze-drying processes have allowed the rest of the world to discover what Amazonian tribes have known for years. The acai berry has natural antioxidant properties that help promote general well-being, boosts energy, stamina and mental acuity levels and can have a positive effect on cholesterol, the digestive system and even increase your sex drive (hence Amazon's Viagra).
The acai berry (Euterpe Oleracea) gets most of its antioxidant properties from the high concentration of anthocyanins; in fact up to 30 times more anthocyanins compared to red wine make acai powder one of the most antioxidant rich superfoods available. The acai fruit pulp is rich in fiber, protein and contains essential fatty acids, all of which combine to help promote healthy digestive and cardiovascular systems.
Like many of our antioxidant-rich Superfood Powders our Acai Powder is freeze-dried within 24 hours of the fruit being picked; a process that removes moisture from the fruit at a very low heat. This allows the powder to retain the nutritional benefits of the raw fruit.
Research into the specific health benefits of Acai Powder is ongoing, but studies indicate that it may:

Have taken Acai in the past but will order my first bag from "Live" in the next couple weeks or so. This stuff is awesome! Combine this w/pomegranate juice or powder for yet another synergistic affect! Health at its best, your body will thank you!! (Posted on 11/15/12)
I've been taking acai for a few years now for the many benefits. I originally bought it from another vender but his acai wasn't as dark and rich as the product from Live Superfoods. I had run out and skipped taking it for several months in my daily morning smoothie and decided to try get back on it for both me and my wife. I ordered the 6 one pound vacuum packed bags since that is the most economical. Let me tell you folks this stuff is powdered purple jet fuel!!! UNBELIEVEABLE energy level experience for both me and the wife and we are both 56!! I wished I had bought it from Live Superfoods in the beginning but like most everyting, you get what you pay for. Thanks Live Superfoods for offering such high quality foods. You now have a customer for life. It's not the cheapest but it certainly is THE BEST!!........J. Burch Austin,TX (Posted on 11/15/12)
I have been using this power for about 2 months. Not really sure about it's complete effectiveness, but I think it delivers on at least one aspect and that's the libido. I didn't buy it for that but it seems to enhance the experience a bit. My one issue is as stated but the description of the product. It doesn't mix very well with juice or water. But that's definitely not a show stopper, mainly because it has a nice taste. (Posted on 11/15/12)
