Hello everyone. Today’s article is a guest post from Holland & Barrett.
It’s that time of year again: when we want to get in shape for the Spring / Summer season and thoughts of the gym appear. Now not all of us like those thoughts and this is what causes the ill-fated crash diets that can do more harm than good to our bodies. As such we look for new and different ways to help us to shift those unwanted pounds and inches as well as removing all the toxins from our bodies that have built up over the Christmas period.
One of the most popular ways this is done is through the use of so called ‘super foods’ which contain high levels of antioxidants. One of the most popular of these is the acai berry, pronounced ‘ah-sigh-ee’. This remarkable little berry comes from the swamps of Central America and the Amazon Basin in Brazil.
This latest berry to join the super food craze maybe small but it is packed tightly with a whole load of antioxidants including the proven fat-busting resveratrol and anthocynanins, omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids, amino acids, fiber and other nutrients. While for many these terms mean nothing those who are in the know in health food terms get quite excited when the acai berry is mentioned and will wax lyrical for as long as you let them about this powerful little berry. Let’s have a quick look at why they do so.
The delightful acai berry, as has already been mentioned, is stuffed with antioxidants which help our bodies to burn the fat calls while fighting the free radicals in our system which damage our cells. It is because of this property that acai berry are said to prevent or slow down the ageing process as well as preventing the free radicals from causing diseases. On top of all this, the acai berry can also boost your overall health, aiding in hair and nail beauty.
