5 Benefits of Eating Açaí
If there's one thing that's certain... it's our never-ending LOVE for açaí! Since Bowl Boss' beginning in 2018, we have made it our mission to spread our passion for this superberry throughout the Central New York area. It is amazing how one food can provide us with so many benefits and nutrients (while tasting DELISH if we might add)! We are proud to be serving up CNY with our Signature Bowl Boss Açaí that contains a super high pulp concentrate, allowing you to get all the benefits from this amazing superfruit without worrying if it has been diluted! Our açaí contains no additional fruits, fillers, or artifical ingredients, making it the perfect choice to enjoy on the daily!
Read on to learn more about how this incredible superberry is a total game-changer when it comes to your health and wellness:
#1 ASSISTS IN WEIGHT LOSS/HEALTHY WEIGHT MAINTENANCE
Açaí contains a healthy mix of carbs, protein and fats (along with a whole host of micronutrients) that will work to keep you satiated and feeling fuller longer. When paired with all the other toppings in your bowl (think: granola, fresh fruits, nut butters, etc), you are setting yourself up for an enjoyable meal that will give you lasting energy for hours on end. You can think of this as a "slow burning" meal, meaning you will not experience an intense energy high followed by an equally intense "crash". Because of your bowl's fantastic balance of all major food groups, ability to provide long-lasting energy and wide variety of flavors, you will feel satisfied and without need to reach for another snack for quite a while--helping you keep your calorie intake in check for the day! Recent studies have also shown açaí pulp is capable of reducing fat deposits within the body, although more research will be required before this can be 100% claimed.
#2 BOOSTS THE IMMUNE SYSTEM
Research has found açaí to contain phytochemicals that can fight compromised cells within the body before they have the chance to multiply and bring on disease. And on the same note, this superberry is also responsible for fighting *free radicals* (atoms that can damage DNA and healthy cells) within your body. So go ahead.. grab a spoon, dig into a bowl of açaí and know you are eating something GREAT that will help strengthen and protect your body.
#3 IMPROVES DIGESTION
Açaí contains about 16 g of fiber per serving which is about 50% of your daily recommended intake! Fiber is essential for digestive health and helps to keep the gut functioning well. Aside from its abundance of fiber, açaí can also act as a detoxifier to the body. So cool!
#4 PROMOTES A HEALTHY HEART
This superberry is packed full of antioxidants to keep your body running at 100%! These antioxidants will work to improve circulation and cholesterol levels while relaxing the blood vessels. A healthy heart = a happy and loooong life! <3
#5 SLOWS AGING EFFECTS
The phytochemicals and antioxidants within açaí fight against cellular damage to promote cognitive function and slow physical signs of aging. Açaí has even been used in Brazilians' skin care routines for centuries as a means to improve overall skin health.
With so many benefits... and even more that we haven't included in just this little blog, who wouldn't want to enjoy a delicious bowl every day?!
