Natural Living

Here’s something that’ll really keep you energized this Valentine’s Day and every day for that matter. Started by two brothers who discovered the magical stuff while surfing in Brazil, they decided they should tell the world about the nutritional benefits of Acai, and so they formed Sambazon in 2000. No wonder everyone from Owen Wilson to Denise Richards to Dr. Salmon Perricone are all knocking back the stuff. Try it, you’ll see why. It’s so good for you, you and your memory will feel the effects!

Acai what?
Acai (pron: ah-sigh-ee) is an antioxidant rich berry that grows wild in the Brazilian Amazon and is considered to be one of the top superfoods in the world. Sambazon was the first company to export Acai from Brazil and our premier organic line of Acai fruit packs and Acai juice blends can now be found in the finest health food stores and juice bars worldwide.

Acai. What’s in it?
• 20 minerals and vitamins (including iron and vitamin E)
• 2 times the antioxidants of blueberries.
• 3 essential fatty acids, Omega 3, 6 and 9

As the premium source of organic acai berries in a whole-food powder, Acai PowerScoop delivers the full synergy of powerful antioxidants, essential and healthy fats, fibers and proteins found only in Acai. You can also get Acai PowerCaps are also an excellent source of anti-oxidants (600-1200 per servings). Take them regularly with meals and see hoe energized you’ll feel.

For more info, go to, Whole Foods stores or any smart health store that knows they’re onto something good with these energetic berry treats. Enjoy!
