The Super Food That Is... The Acai Berry!

The Acai berry is the richest source of vitamin C known to man, containing 15-22% vitamin C. Vitamin C is needed for the synthesis of Carnitine which promotes the metabolism of fat for energy which can aid fat loss.

The vitamin and antioxidant content of the Acai berry means it’s effective at maintaining heart health, skin integrity, which in turn reduces the ageing process, and could help defend against some cancers (Basu, Rhone and Lyons, 2010)!

Add this to your supplement regimen to help strip unwanted fat, and for a potent source of vitamins and antioxidants for overall healthfulness.

NOTE: Some components of the Acai berry might interact with medication, particularly blood thinning drugs. Consult your Doctor if you feel this might apply to you.
