If you still haven’t tried the vegan acai bowls at Acai Queen in Ubud, Bali, then do your body and taste buds a favour, and make SURE you KEEP READING.

The elusive acai berry (pronounced ‘ahh-sigh-ee’, for those not in the know), is royalty amongst the berry family. Hailing from the tropical rainforests in South America, Acai Queen’s favoured ingredient of choice is not only a tropical superstar, but is also literally jam-packed with nutrients and health benefits. Most of these are of the antioxidant variety, but these tiny, deep purple fruits have also been noted to contribute to a broad range of other things too, including improvement in skin health, weight loss and even memory enhancement!

As 80% of the fruit is made up by the seed, the taste of Acai berries on their own is quite an unusual one. That’s why Acai Queen has perfected the components of a variety of fruit and superfood blends, which compliment and enhance the nutritional quality of the Acai berry, with a whole host of other sweet and juicy ingredients to maximise taste and diversity!

In terms of how the regular consumption of Acai berries can affect your health, some recent findings have noted the following:

  1. Anti- Cancerous BenefitsAcai berries contain vast amount of Anthocyanins,which are known to activate anticarcinogenic properties in the body, as well as preventing the proliferation and growth of cancer cells. A small amount of acai berries in your daily routine (or morning acai bowl at Acai Queen!!) can contribute to a reduced likelihood of developing cancer later in life. They are the very definition of ‘superfood’!!
  2. Anti- Inflammatory Effects
    Did you know that inflammation is an underlying root cause for almost ALL major diseases affecting humankind right now??? The Acai berry is amazing at reducing joint and seasonal pain, as it’s a powerful anti-inflammatory ingredient. Some diseases which have been linked to inflammation include cancer, osteoperosis, arthritis, diabetes, and alzheimers. By increasing your intake of anti-inflammatory foods like the acai berry, you significantly reduce the chances of inflammation becoming a chronic issue, which can then lead to these more serious illnesses down the line.
  3. Cognitive Function
    As well as the benefits outlined above, these powerful little anthocyanins also inhibit ‘neuroinflammation’ in the nerves, which boosts synaptic signals and reflexes, and as such improves blood flow to the brain. This increased supply of blood aids in cognitive function and memory capacity, and is exactly the reason why those who regularly consume the acai berry will also have low risks of developing brain-related diseases like Alzheimers or Parkinson’s. Forget blueberries – the acai berry is where it’s at!
  4. Good for the HeartThe production of HDL (‘good’ cholesterol’) is increased as the anthocyanin intake is boosted, while LDL (‘bad’ cholesterol) has been observed to decrease. Increasing fiber intake is one way to combat this and prevent progression of these imbalances, but luckily, the acai berry does that too! Those with excess weight will benefit from a lowered blood sugar and cholesterol level with the regular addition of Acai to their diet too!
  5. Good Fats and AA’sIt has become more widely accepted that ‘good fats’ (specifically Omega-3 fatty acids) are a vital and extremely beneficial component of a healthy diet. Acai berries are rich in fatty acids, and also contain an impressive 19 amino acids, which contribute to the naturally anti-oxidizing properties they contain, too. The high fiber content in the acai berry also makes them amazing at improving digestion!
  6. CalciumAcai berries are also rich in calcium, which is vital in high levels to maintain healthy bones, muscles and nerves – especially for those following a vegan diet. In fact, acai berries contain twice as much calcium as blueberries, and also provide a direct, organic source of vitamins A, B1, B2, B3 and  E.
