Organic Acai Powder is rich in vitamins A and E – both fat soluble antioxidant compounds which have the ability to gently neutralise free radicals in the body – foreign invading microorganisms and environmental toxins – thus protecting the cells from oxidative stress. This allows the immune system to function at a higher level, making it more effective in attacking these opportunistic microbes. Vitamin A is also well known for its role in eye health with the beta-carotene being converted into retinol which produces pigments in the retina.
Also high in vitamins B1 and B2 – both water soluble vitamins which means we must constantly replenish them – these two vitamins are critical in the breakdown of food we consume into usable energy, without adequate B vitamins the enzymes involved in energy production do not function optimally. These are also key vitamins in protecting and promoting the health of the nervous system by assisting in the proper development of myelin sheaths around the nerves
An important source of the vital minerals iron, calcium and potassium, acai powder is delicious when added to smoothies, a bowl of breakfast oatmeal or mix in with some yoghurt to give the start to your day a powerful antioxidant boost!
How to use:
Integrating Superfoods into your daily diet is simple and easy. Superfoods are particularly dense in nutrients, and free from any bulking agents or fillers. By adding superfoods to your daily diet you can fortify your food with super nutrition. Try replacing breakfast with a superfood smoothie. The smoothie can be made with a base of nut milk, seed milk or non-dairy milk such as rice milk, alternatively the main body of the smoothie can be created with fruit or vegetable juices.
Then additional superfood and herb powders can be added to fortify the smoothie with extra beneficial properties, the powders are largely dissolvable and can be scooped in and then blended or shaken until fully mixed in. Superfoods can be easily added to breakfast cereals such as porridge, muesli or granola. The powders, berries, grains, seeds and nuts can also be added to soups, salads, stews, curries, and used as toppings for any meal. Think about what you can replace in your daily diet with Superfoods.

Indigo Herbs Organic Acai Powder comes from berries that are harvested by cooperatives of local river people between May and November each year and sold at marketplaces dedicated specifically for Acai purchasing. The berries are then selected and cleaned, the skin disposed of and the pulp extracted, pasteurized and frozen. The freezing process consists of exposing the Acai fruit to a vacuumed environment at a temperature of -40. This method eliminates all water in the fruit through a process called sublimation and insures that the powder doesn’t lose any nutritional value from heat processing or preservatives. Throughout the process all organic standards are adhered to with special attention paid to keeping this powder completely contaminant free. The whole process takes less than 24 hours from harvest to bring you the very best pure light purple Organic Acai Powder.
