Originally grown in the Amazon rainforest, look for this tiny grape-like fruit in your local supermarket and you are unlikely to find it, especially fresh.
Even despite acai berries numerous endorsements by Julia Roberts, Rachel Ray and Brad Pitt (during his film ‘Burn after Reading’), the only real source for investing in this nutrient dense product is online.
Part of the problems stems from acai berries rapid degeneration. Within 24 hours of being harvested, acai berry loses the potency of its numerous nutrients and becomes less effective. So unless you live near Brazil, eating fresh Acai is next to impossible.
Fortunately advancements in flash freezing has meant that acai berry can now be more easily preserved and converted into supplements, purees, juices and powders.
Yet even then accessing acai berry products is difficult.
Due to its processing, by the time this product reaches the supermarket shelves it has dramatically risen in price. The only real affordable way to access this fruit is to buy it online.
Search Google and you’ll find a number of reputable sources for this nutritious fruit who will happily ship their juices/supplements to anywhere in the world. The only thing you should be conscious of is the quality of these products when you are researching.
Check first to see how the berry has been processed. If it has undergone anything other than flash freezing, then don’t buy it. If you do you could potentially be investing in product that may have lost a significant amount of its nutrients along the way.
