Acaí for women
Acaí, the antioxidant-rich South American palm tree fruit from the Amazon River basin, helped healthy women neutralize free radicals and prevent cellular damage. Free radicals contain reactive oxygen species, and high levels can damage cells.

In this study, 35 healthy women, aged 15 to 33, took 200 grams of acaí pulp per day. After four weeks, levels of damaging free radical reactive oxygen species were 78 percent lower, and total cellular antioxidant capacity had increased by 104 percent. Doctors said the increase in cellular antioxidant capacity means that the women were better able to overcome free-radical reactive oxygen species and prevent damage to cells in the body.
