The pinot palm is a large palm tree native to South America and belonging to the Arecaceae family. It is known for its berries, which grow in clusters, called Acai. Their purple color is attributed to the high concentration of phytochemicals in the fruit. In particular anthocyanin. This blue-red pigment has various medicinal properties, including a strong antioxidant capacity. Phenols, also available, increase this antioxidant potential. Acai powder also provides a lot of fiber, calcium and iron. All these nutrients justify the inclusion of Acai powder in a varied and balanced diet. What more could you ask for than to add color to your dishes or drinks, to let its red fruit and chocolate-like flavor spread, while doing good to your body? Latin name: Euterpe oleracea. Botanical family: Arecaceae. Part used: Fruit.
Acai powder is a concentrate of energy and nutrients. It is preferable to increase the doses as you go along in order to avoid unpleasant side effects. In classic cure or for pleasure, 5 to 20 g, or 1 to 4 teaspoon(s) of Acai powder per day.

You can incorporate them into the following preparations to make them easier to take:
As such, acai powder can complement your healthy and varied diet.
Acai powder helps regulate cholesterol and blood sugar levels. Their fiber influences the amount and timing of cholesterol and carbohydrate absorption. Acai powder also prevents the vascular complications of these two diseases, thanks to the phytonutrients and omega-9 that compose it. Indeed, omega-9 is known to protect the cardiovascular system. The phytonutrients (anthocyanins and phenols) fight against the oxidation of cholesterol, a factor in the development of atheromatous plaques.
Acai powder is extremely rich in iron. It fights against iron deficiency which leads to a decrease in resistance to external infections. Therefore, the iron in Acai powder reinforces the immune benefits of a varied and balanced diet.
Acai berries intervene on several ailments and disorders of the digestive system. They participate in digestive transit, thanks to their high fiber content (see our guide constipation and diet). Finally, it would seem that they improve liver damage in cases of alcoholic hepatic steatosis.
Acai powder is naturally low in sodium and high in potassium. A reduction in sodium intake in combination with potassium helps to maintain normal blood pressure. As part of a healthy lifestyle, Acai helps to prevent blood pressure disorders.
In case of fatigue, bet on the acai powder, to sprinkle or drink. It provides carbohydrates and lipids: fuel for the body. On the macronutrient side, there is a lot of iron. Thus, the Acai powder fills the iron deficiencies responsible for excessive fatigue and decreased intellectual performance. Finally, it restores the functioning of the nervous system by providing calcium and potassium, two minerals essential to the propagation of nervous information.
By contributing to the mineralization of the teeth, by providing calcium, Acai powder prevents dental hypersensitivity. As part of a varied and balanced diet, Acai contributes to the health of the oral cavity.
Extremely rich in calcium. Acai powder contributes to the mineralization of the bones. The sufficient intake of calcium strengthens the bones. A good bone rigidity prevents the risk of fracture.
To magnify the features, two major steps are necessary for the contraction of a muscle: the arrival of the action potential (nerve message), and the shortening of the muscles (the contraction). A defect in these two mechanisms can lead to involuntary muscle contractions. Acai powder contributes to the functioning of both mechanisms. First of all, potassium is responsible for the transmission of nerve impulses. Subsequently, calcium collaborates with muscle proteins to allow the sliding of muscle proteins in relation to each other leading to the shortening of the muscle: the contraction. To learn more: muscle cramps and diet.
Anemia is a decrease in the level of hemoglobin in the blood. This decrease in hemoglobin is multifactorial. Acai powder contributes to the iron intake. An iron deficiency decreases the production of red blood cells (see our guide iron deficiency anemia and diet).
The pinot basket is a large palm tree of the Arecaceae family. Native to South America, it grows abundantly in estuaries, swamps and flood plains of the Amazon. The pinot palm has different vernacular names, such as "cabbage palm", "wassaï" in Guyana, "Açaï" in Brazil, or "içá-çai" among the natives, which means "the fruit that cries"... This last name says a lot about its fruiting. The pinot palm bears dark purple berries, grouped in clusters along the stipe (trunk) of the palm.
The Acai berry is mainly used as a vegetable oil for rural medicine and also as an important source of food. More recently, Acai berries have become very lucrative for local people through global export. However, the fruit is not consumed fresh outside of South America, due to its highly perishable potential.
In the Amazon, it is said that the acai berry is known as the "viagra of the Amazon forest". It seems that these berries have aphrodisiac virtues and the power to boost the male libido.Organic acai (powder) rich in antioxidants
