I have heard about Acai. Can you tell me more? Acai is a grape-size dark purple berry grown deep in the Amazon Rainforest. The acai fruit is found growing at the top of very tall palm trees in big clusters that yield up to 800 berries per branch and grow in clusters like bananas. Acai is fast becoming all the rage in the health food industry and while new to the American health consciousness, acai has been around for centuries.

Acai is known to be used for treatment of digestive problems, skin irritation, sexual dysfunction, and even insomnia. Acai has exceptional nutrient properties and is naturally rich in the following:

Can you eat the berries directly? No. The berries need to be properly harvested and processed, by which the acai is extracted from the pulp of the berry and then sold in health food stores and online. When processed it has an earthy tropical fruit flavor and tastes great.
Beside drinking smoothies and taking a pill, can acai be used in other ways?
