Loose Leaf Acai Tea
A Gift from the Amazon
To Begin, What’s an Acai Berry, Anyway?
The acai berry (or, technically, spelled “açaí” and pronounced “ah-sigh-EE“) is a superfruit from the Amazon. Actually, it grows on a species of palm tree, native to Brazil, Trinidad, and northern South America. Acai berries are dark purple or green–similar to a grape, but smaller.
What Does Acai Do?
Recently, there’s been a bit of controversy over the claims of some acai producers. In the mid-2000s, various celebrities and organizations marketed acai supplements as miraculous weight loss products. Unfortunately, those claims are pretty unreliable.
However, some studies have shown that acai has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties (da Silva Cristino Cordeiro et al., 2017; Torma et al., 2017). Also, it may have an anti-cancer effect (Choi et al., 2016).
