The Powerful Açaí Berry
The blackish purple, edible berry of a Central and South American palm tree is on our mind today. Palm berry, aka açaí [ah-sigh-ee] berry, is what we are talking about here and Formula Fresh offers many bowls filled with these berries. Choose from one of their six bowls featuring the nutrition-packed fruit titled: be yummy, beach bowl, detox bowl, blue almond, the shorty, or cacao dream. Formula Fresh blends the açaí berries with a variety of fruits and superfoods into a sorbet consistency and top them off with nutrient dense ingredients. Each time you order one of these bowls, you consume some powerful nutrients. Fatty acids, fiber, and healthy fats- just to name a few.
Açaí berries contain oleic, palmitic, and linoleic fatty acids. These are acids your body uses to fight inflammation, promote proper nerve functioning, help hormone production, and prevent and treat disease. They also help tremendously in nourishing your skin, nails and hair. You might know some of those acids as omegas like omega-3 and omega-6.
Sure açaí berries do not hold any protein, but they do hold the building blocks of protein, which are amino acids. Amino acids help your body build muscle and boost your immune system. So, get your regular dose of protein on top of some açaí and do your body good! Formula Fresh’s blue almond or cacao dream bowls provide that for you with their fresh peanut butter and almond butter ingredients.
We all know antioxidants are good for you, but did you know that açaí berries contain the highest amount of any berry out there? Antioxidants help neutralize free radicals in the body, which are the waste materials our bodies produce when they process food or react to the outside environment. Inflammation, smoke, and UV exposure all increase the production of waste in our bodies, but berries like açaí keep that waste at bay.
On top of all those benefits, açaí has 1 gram of fiber per teaspoon and 6 milligrams of calcium. The benefits just keep on coming! So, thank you Formula Fresh for providing these incredibly healthy bowls to keep us going throughout the heat of spring and summer as well as any other adventure we happen upon this year. No go and spring-clean your body, mind, and keep it that way with delicious açaí bowls.
