Introduction.

Ever since Crosby, Still and Nash sang about them some forty years ago, taking acai berries as a health supplement has been one of the things to do. Acai berries can be far more beneficial than just giving a boost to your vitamin C; they contain plant stanols that can be used as a food additive to grab cholesterol from the digestive system - which can also help to lower your blood pressure.

Actually taking acai berries.

To get the full benefits of eating acai berries, you need to eat them freshly picked.

The discussion currently going around is how exactly should you take acai berries? Unless youre able to grow them yourself, or live in the Amazon basin which is their natural habitat, then you cant eat them fresh. As we all know fresh for all fruits - is king when it comes to maximizing the effect we can get from them. Along with the freshness aspect needs to be considered the volume of them we can consume. Amazonian Indians consume vast quantities of these berries to get the doses of vitamin C and the virus busting and cell repairing purple antioxidant pigment. Some people think the solution is to buy the acai berry drinks available in many stores, whist the volume in a typical bottle would be more than enough, the freshness simply wont guarantee youre able to gain the maximum health benefit from it.

The best way to take acai berries.

So, what is the solution to this conundrum then? Simply this, buy frozen acai berry pulp. Exactly the same as the vegetables you buy frozen, being picked and immediately frozen stores all of the beneficial health properties, so that means all the vitamin C, stanols and antioxidants can be fully stored in the frozen acai berry pulp. You only need to take about 150ml of this pulp daily, so adding some to your breakfast cereal is an ideal way to have it. Acai berries are one of the many super-foods were advised to take. So, dont forget you can vary the topping you put on your cereal now and then using locally available berries like blackberries or blackcurrants; or if youre really into your Chinese herbals - goji berries.
