From magazines to medical journals, the favourite focus seems to be on staying young, vital and healthy. And, besides the billions we spend on a nation of clothes, fitness, vitamins, creams, pills, and perhaps even plastic surgery to keep looking and feeling our best, the experts say much of how we look and feel is based on the life we live. And, they assert that a HUGE part of our lifestyle is the big-D. That’s right DIET can, they say, determine how well we age, or better yet, don’t age.

In fact, many suggest that the fountain of youth may just be hidden in a rainbow of foods. These colourful and tasty treats are rich in antioxidants and help fend off the years and in many cases also disease. Among the favourties foods that are bright and bold and rich in hue, including blueberries, broccoli, sweet potatoes, tomatoes and the latest and apparently “greatest”, added to the list, acai (pronounced ah-sigh-ee)

According to experts, this tiny fruit from the South American rainforest packs a GIANORMOUS and powerful punch when it comes to keeping us young and healthy. In fact, it is said to contain twice the antioxidant content of blueberries and 10 times more antioxidants than red graped and 10 to 30 times more anthocyanins than found in red wine. Plus, it’s also packed with essential amino and fatty acids that help keep cell membranes more supple, and all hormones, neurotransmitters and insulin receptors function more efficiently, regulating insulin levels and minimizing inflammation, which often leads to and causes aging.

Other extraordinary traits of this tiny berry include a holistic harmony of monounsaturated fats (the good kid), dietary fiber, and phytosterols to are essential in aiding healthy heart and digestive health.
