Acai berry is pretty popular. I mean I've heard of it but it wasn't until I got a few emails about my statement that blueberries have the most antioxidants of any fruit. I really began looking into it and found some interesting benefits to acai berry and acai berry juice.

It is known to lower bad cholesterol and raise good cholesterol as well as being in a unique class of antioxidants.

Acai Berries are also heart health and may benefit your digestive tract because of its unique blend of monounsaturated fats,fiber and phytosterols.
Mediterranean populations also report a lower incident of heart attacks and disease and many speculate that it is due to a diet high in acai berry since acai berry has a fatty acid ratio that resembles the very popular and health olive oil.
