Have you jumped on board the Acai Amazon craze yet? If you have yet to do so then you do not know what you are missing! The Amazon acai berry is the latest weight loss and general health remedy to have been added to the stock list in health stores and so has caught the attention of women everywhere.
However, it is the presence of the acai Amazon berry on various high profile TV shows that has really alerted the world to its presence.
Although the Amazon acai berry is everywhere at the moment, it was only actually introduced to the United States in the late 1990s. Explorers and health experts introduced the acai Amazon after finding out just what it could do for men and women alike because of its antioxidant content.
It really is a true Super Food and may be new to the global market but not the local market in its natural environment.
In fact, acai Amazon are known as that for one reason only – they come from the Amazon rainforest in Brazil.
Nobody quite knows how long they have been around for or indeed when the indigenous people began to use them. However, it is known that the local tribes have been eating the Amazon acai berry as a part of their regular diet for some time for medicinal purposes.
The locals recognized that it could help to iron out various health issues and help to strengthen the immune system overall. They also found that the acai Amazon tribes, or those that used it, tended to have more energy and could thus do their duties better. As you can see, they found out all about the Amazon acai berry long before we did and benefited from its power.
Although conditions are not naturally conducive for growing the acai Amazon style in the United States, it has been used extensively in various products since it was first discovered. It was initially available in energy drinks and bars but has since been used for supplements and food in amongst various other consumable goods.
Now the benefits of the acai have been passed on to the rest of the world!
Relatively little is still known about the Amazon acai berry or indeed other similar natural health boosters that can also be found in the Amazon rainforest.
However, we should, make the most of their availability given the fact that we have only just discovered them but the destruction of the rainforest means that we may soon have to live without them.
