  • They regulate your cholesterol because of the plant sterols and anthocyanin present in it. The antioxidants in these berries prevent LDL (Low density lipo-protein) from getting oxidized, thus preventing an imbalance in the HDL (High density lipoprotein) to LDL ratio & regulating cholesterol levels.
  • Acai berries help to slow down the aging process. It’s ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) levels are much higher than what is found in average fruits and helps in arresting free radicals that cause aging.
  • Due to high fiber content, acai berries boosts your digestion process and helps you overcome problems such as constipation, diarrhea and flatulence.
