What is Açaí Berry?

Todays society, with all the stress and different lifestyle, demands that you add nutrients to your regular food. With Açaímalaysia Original Juice ( now known as "asayi'e Botanical Beverage Acai Berry Pulp" ) you get many different nutrients and vitamins in the same drink. You do get antioxidants from the food you eat,but probably not in the quantity you need. Bad skin, insomnia, can be signs that you need supplements. Antioxidants can help you feel younger:
Healthy stomach
More energy
Heart, cholesterol, diabetes

What is Açaí?

Pronounced a-sa-ee, the purple-fleshed acai fruit has a long history of use in South America, but is just now gaining popularity worldwide because of new scientific research supporting its health benefits, particularly its antioxidant properties. Besides being touted by the famous Dr. Nicholas Perricone in his book on health and aging, The Perricone Promise, the fruit has also been discussed on Oprah, NBC’s Today Show and on Steve O’Brien’s CBS-FM New York radio show. In addition to its inclusion in several nutritional supplements, the little fruit from the Amazon has even made its way into a fruit smoothie available from the popular national chain, Jamba Juice.

The egg-shaped acai fruit, approximately 1.5 centimeters in size, got its name from Brazilian locals along the Amazon River, who call both the palm tree and its fruit “acai”. The palm tree consists of numerous usable parts, including roots, stems, leaf fronds and clusters of the actual fruit with its deep purplish-red pulp and very large seed (so large that it makes up 80 percent of the fruit’s size).

This health-promoting fruit is highly valued in trade along the border between Colombia and Brazil, where it has a long history of use: it can be made into a drink or added to other foods, such as breads and seafood dishes. But in all inhabited regions around the Amazon River and its tributaries where the tree grows in abundance, residents make use of all parts of the palm. Acai is now a very popular fruit in South America, and it has made its way into hair care products and trendy ice creams, but its potential health benefits are giving it a new kind of renown around the globe.

It looks like a blueberry and grows in the amazons, 20 m up in the acai palm tree. Natives have been eating acai for generations. There is a lot of legends about its healing powers.
Compared with other fruit juices the acai content is extreme. What really makes Acai different is the high content of Antioxidants, Acai contains between 3-6 times more antioxidant than Blueberry and about 30 times as a glass of red grapes. If you compare Acai with for example mangosteen, Acai contains 6 times more antioxidants.

Our product
” Açaímalaysia Original Juice” ( now known as "asayi'e Botanical Beverage Acai Berry Pulp" )

” Açaímalaysia Original Juice”  ("asayi'e Botanical Beverage Acai Berry Pulp" )is produced and bottled in our supplier plant in Brazil. By doing so we can guarantee the highest concentration of Acai on the market and highest quality. Our product does not contain any other fruit or berry.
In comparison with other fruits and juices the content in Acai is extreme but what makes Acai really special is the high level of antioxidants. Açaí contains 6-9 times as much antioxidant compared with blueberry and 30 times as much antioxidant as red grapes. If you compare Acai with juices made from mangosteen, Acai contains 6 timer more antioxidants.

Acai Berry Health Benefits

Acai Berries have been shown to be extremely high in essential fatty acids, including Omega fatty acids. Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) are also known as Polyunsaturated Fats and required for healthy skin, healthy hair, regulating the metabolic system and bones. But what does this actually mean, and what are the health benefits of Acai Berry products?

Acai Berries & cholesterol
The Fatty Acids and Phytosterols (plant sterols that are similar in structure to cholesterol) assist in the breakdown of LDL – bad cholesterol and promote HDL, good cholesterol. A clean, well functioning blood stream is essential to maintain the health of all your functions and keeping cholesterol low is fundamental in maintaining a healthy heart and fighting heart disease.

The Omega Fatty Acids found in Acai Berries are extraordinarily high. The body does not produce these, and they need to be consumed orally. Omega Fatty acids play a vital role in healthy growth and development of the brain. Taking Acai Berry supplements is a great way to give our bodies these nutrients and maintain low cholesterol levels.

Essential Fatty Acids

There are two distinct types of fatty acids: essential and non-essential.

Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) are fatty acids that the body can’t produce, so therefore crucial to complete a balanced diet. Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) are necessary in the maintenance and creation of cell membranes within the body.

EFAs are utilised by many of the body’s systems to maintain proper tissue function. EFAs are also required for energy production, effective functioning of the nervous system, brain development and function, skin health and elasticity, digestive efficiency, normal cardiovascular function, hormone production, and effective immune response.

Due to the popular misconception that fat is “bad” for the body many people have adopted a low or no fat diet. Low or no fat, coupled with the widespread consumption of processed and genetically modified foods, have created EFA deficiencies.

Leading researchers are finding significant links between EFA deficiencies and disease. Supplementation with EFAs, from Acai Berry supplements, is therefore an integral part of a complete nutritional program. To help achieve your peak performance it is crucial that you supplement with Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs). Acai Berry supplements are a great source of these acids. - source

Healthy Blood, Healthy Brain, Healthy Bones

The Fatty Acids and Phytosterols (plant sterols that are similar in structure to cholesterol) assist in the breakdown of LDL – bad cholesterol and promote HDL, good cholesterol. A clean, well functioning blood stream is essential to maintain the health of all your functions and keeping cholesterol low is fundamental in maintaining a healthy heart and fighting heart disease. Further, the Omega Fatty Acids found in this Berry are extraordinarily high. The body does not produce these and they need to be consumed orally. Omega Fatty acids play a vital role in healthy growth and development of the brain. Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) are also known as Polyunsaturated Fats and required for healthy skin, hair, regulating the metabolic system and bones.

Healthy Immune System with Acai Berries

The Acai’s densely packed levels of Antioxidants and Anthocyanins are second to none. These are the very organic chemical compounds that are required to fight off disease and toxins in the body. Boosting your immune system is paramount to good health and fighting even the common cold.

The impact of the Acai and the Immune system reaches much further, in that it has the capability of blasting even cancerous cells. The University of Florida have been testing this berry in a variety of concentrations and have found that dependent on the extract concentration, the Acai has created Aptosis in blood cells (they “commit suicide”) from anywhere between 35 – 86%.

Your skin, Ageing Process and The Acai Berry

Antioxidants in particular absorb oxidants which would otherwise allow the oxidation process to take place and free radicals would essentially attack by causing toxicity to your skin. The indegenous people of the Amazon have been using the Acai with great success as a form of first aid in treating skin problems for many generations and remains one of it’s primary uses.

Did you know?

• The U.S. National Academy of Sciences (NAS) began looking into traditional uses of the fruit in the 1980s. Researchers noted that the fruit was highly sought- after by young and old of all economic classes for its strength and energy- promoting properties and was usually consumed at each meal. It is such a mainstay of the local diet that the typical individual is known to consume up to two liters a day of acai fruit.

• The most desirable variety of acai liquid is purple in color, called acai preto.

• Most people who try acai find it to be delicious. It has been described as a completely unique flavor—a sort of chocolate and berry mix.

• The seeds constitute about 80 percent of the acai fruit. Once removed from the pulp and skin, these seeds are an important source of food for livestock. Another use for the seeds is as a source of organic soil to grow plants. The soil is formed after composting the seeds until it turns into a rich, dark brown moist composition. In large population centers, one may find large bins full of the seeds or organic soil produced from these seeds sold to city dwellers.

• The first studies undertaken to evaluate the nutritional value of acai fruit were completed in the 1930s and 1940s, and were often of French or Portuguese origin. These studies tended to focus on major vitamin content and sometimes mineral content.

• More recent research, from the 1960s to the present, has examined the full scope of macronutrients, trace minerals and other bioactive compounds that make up the acai fruit. Newer studies have also reported on the little fruit’s lipid, carbohydrate and protein content.

• With the growing popularity of acai liquid and its byproducts, there is a growing appreciation for the palm’s value, not just as a commodity food item, but also as a highly nutritious and phytonutrient-rich food source for people around the world.

• A research institute, AIMBR Life Sciences, found through extensive research, that the acai fruit contains many nutrients including:

B-vitamins Folate Potassium
Beta-carotene Iodine Selenium
Boron Iron Vitamin C
Calcium Magnesium Vitamin D
Chromium Manganese Vitamin E
Copper Molybdenum Zinc

ORAC ASSAY One way of measuring the antioxidant capacity of a food is the oxygen radical absorption capacity (ORAC) assay. The ORAC test looks at how much a particular food inhibits free radical activity. There are several different ORAC assays, each of which had been conducted on freeze-dried acai. A scientist at the National Institutes of Aging and United States Department of Agriculture developed the ORAC assay in 1992. This assay was declared to be one of the greatest technological developments ever made by the USDA in more than 120 years. The ORAC assay has been repeatedly validated as a reliable method for antioxidant capacity determination. USDA has tested all of the fruits and vegetables consumed in the United States for their antioxidant activity via the ORAC assay. The USDA reports that the highest average ORAC of any of the foods they tested was for cranberries, which had an ORAC score of 95. A sample of freeze-dried acai fruit pulp underwent the ORAC assay and it was determined the total ORAC value was 1027. This makes acai the star of well-known antioxidants, the highest fruit and vegetable ever tested by the ORAC assay. - source

Brazilian berry destroys cancer cells in lab, UF study shows

Filed under Agriculture, Health, Research, Sciences on Thursday, January 12, 2006.

GAINESVILLE, Fla. — A Brazilian berry popular in health food contains antioxidants that destroyed cultured human cancer cells in a recent University of Florida study, one of the first to investigate the fruit’s purported benefits.

Published today in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, the study showed extracts from acai (ah-SAH’-ee) berries triggered a self-destruct response in up to 86 percent of leukemia cells tested, said Stephen Talcott, an assistant professor with UF’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences.

“Acai berries are already considered one of the richest fruit sources of antioxidants,” Talcott said. “This study was an important step toward learning what people may gain from using beverages, dietary supplements or other products made with the berries.”

He cautioned that the study, funded by UF sources, was not intended to show whether compounds found in acai berries could prevent leukemia in people.

“This was only a cell-culture model and we don’t want to give anyone false hope,” Talcott said. “We are encouraged by the findings, however. Compounds that show good activity against cancer cells in a model system are most likely to have beneficial effects in our bodies.”

Other fruits, including grapes, guavas and mangoes, contain antioxidants shown to kill cancer cells in similar studies, he said. Experts are uncertain how much effect antioxidants have on cancer cells in the human body, because factors such as nutrient absorption, metabolism and the influence of other biochemical processes may influence the antioxidants’ chemical activity.

Another UF study, slated to conclude in 2006, will investigate the effects of acai’s antioxidants on healthy human subjects, Talcott said. The study will determine how well the compounds are absorbed into the blood, and how they may affect blood pressure, cholesterol levels and related health indicators. So far, only fundamental research has been done on acai berries, which contain at least 50 to 75 as-yet unidentified compounds.

“One reason so little is known about acai berries is that they’re perishable and are traditionally used immediately after picking,” he said. “Products made with processed acai berries have only been available for about five years, so researchers in many parts of the world have had little or no opportunity to study them.”

Talcott said UF is one of the first institutions outside Brazil with personnel studying acai berries. Besides Talcott, UF’s acai research team includes Susan Percival, a professor with the food science and human nutrition department, David Del Pozo-Insfran, a doctoral student with the department and Susanne Mertens-Talcott, a postdoctoral associate with the pharmaceutics department of UF’s College of Pharmacy.

Acai berries are produced by a palm tree known scientifically as Euterpe oleracea, common in floodplain areas of the Amazon River, Talcott said. When ripe, the berries are dark purple and about the size of a blueberry. They contain a thin layer of edible pulp surrounding a large seed.

Historically, Brazilians have used acai berries to treat digestive disorders and skin conditions, he said. Current marketing efforts by retail merchants and Internet businesses suggest acai products can help consumers lose weight, lower cholesterol and gain energy.

“A lot of claims are being made, but most of them haven’t been tested scientifically,” Talcott said. “We are just beginning to understand the complexity of the acai berry and its health-promoting effects.”

In the current UF study, six different chemical extracts were made from acai fruit pulp, and each extract was prepared in seven concentrations.

Four of the extracts were shown to kill significant numbers of leukemia cells when applied for 24 hours. Depending on the extract and concentration, anywhere from about 35 percent to 86 percent of the cells died.

The UF study demonstrates that research on foods not commonly consumed in the United States is important, because it may lead to unexpected discoveries, said Joshua Bomser, an assistant professor of molecular nutrition and functional foods at The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio.

But familiar produce items have plenty of health-giving qualities, he said.

“Increased consumption of fruits and vegetables is associated with decreased risk for many diseases, including heart disease and cancer,” said Bomser, who researches the effects of diet on chronic diseases. “Getting at least five servings a day of these items is still a good recommendation for promoting optimal health.”

The emergence of the Acai Berry into our modern culture

Once Japan surrendered in 1945, Brazilian rubber was no longer needed by the Americans and the programme ended. However, the Brazilian Government did not see right on it’s promise to return the youths back home, nor did they pay them the wages they had promised. Personal documentation was either destroyed or kept by plantation owners, so the young men whom had contributed towards a successful war in their own way had been deserted by their own Government. They were stranded and unrecognised.

The ‘Rubber Soldiers’ continued to live in the jungle and lived off subsistence farming and unwittingly during this period had been using what we, today, discover to be one of the most nutritious and diverse trees in terms of it’s uses – The Acai Palm, which produces The Acai Berry. It was this group of people that learned to use the Heart of Palm and The Acai Berry as a way to feed themselves.

During the 1980’s, after much lobbying, the Brazilian Government wrote a new constitution recognising the ‘Rubber Soldiers’ and offered within The Constitution a pension package. However, most of these now older men entering into the latter years of their lives, were unable to draw any of this pension, on account of not having the correct paperwork. Many of these soldiers have now passed on and very few remain. Their families however, a community that has managed to sustain itself within the walls of the jungle, remain as farmers and, ironically, continue to harvest rubber as a way to sustain themselves to this day. Sadly, it is estimated that at least half of the original 55,000 young men whom were drafted into the programme died before it was terminated.

Today, the Acai Berry provides a valuable income to many indigenous communities, not only from the sale of the Acai Berries to the Western World, but also from using all parts of the Acai Palm to produce materials for their own use or to sell.
