Improving general health
Acai (ah-sigh-EE) Berry (Euterpe oleracea), is a species of plam tree cultivated for its fruit and hearts of palm. It is mostly native in the rainforests of Brazil and Southern America, mainly in swamps and floodplains. Acai palms are tall, slender palms growing upwards of 25+ meters (82 feet). The fruit is a small, round, black-purple drupe about 1 inch (25mm) in circumference, similar in appearance to a grape.
As a food, the Acai Berry is eaten raw and as a juice. The juice is also used commercially as a beverage and in ice cream, jelly and liquers.
Acai berry is widely touted as a so-called “superfood” or “super fruit” andhas gained an immense popularity owing to their multitude of health benefits. Acai is especially effective for osteparthritis, high cholesterol, weight loss, obesity, skin appearance, detoxification and general health.
Acai Berries contain chemicals that are antioxidants. Antioxidants are thought to protect body cells from damaging effects of chemical reactions with oxygen (oxidation). According to some research, acai has more antioxidant content than cranberries, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries or blueberryies. Antioxidants are one of the keys to preventing cancer, disease, having young skin, and maintaining good health.
Extremly rich in vitamin C
Acerola (Malpighiaemarginata) is a tropical fruit-bearing shrub or small tree in the family Malpighiaceae. Common names include Barbados cherry, West Indian cherry and wild crepe myrtle. Acerola is native in Texas, South America, Southern Mexico, Central America and in subtropical areas of Asia, such as India.
The fruit of the Acerola is one of the richest sources of vitamin C, although it contains vitamins A, B1, B2, B3 as well as carotenoids, bioflavonoids and minerals. Because of its high concentration of vitamin C, it is also sold as a natural health supplement. Acerola contains from 1 to 4.5 percent vitamin C (1,000 to 4,500 mg / 100g) in the edible portion of the fruit.
Vitamin C is known to strengthen the immune system and build collagen cells. It also supports the respiratory system. Vitamin C is known to be an effective antioxidant. The antioxidative qualities of acerola make it an ideal ingredient in skin care products to fight cellular aging. In reports acerola extract was shown to enhance the antioxidant activity of soy and alfalfa extracts, acting synergistically. This is beneficial in coronary artery disease.
An Antioxidant Superstar
Aronia berries, also known as black chokeberries, is a genus of deciduous shrubs in the family Rosaceae, native to eastern North America and most commonly found in wet woods and swamps. The sour berries can be eaten raw, but are more frequently processed. They are commonly used to make jam, syrup, juice and wine. The name “chokeberry” comes from the astringency of the fruits, which create a sensation making one’s mouth pucker.
The small dark berries of Aronia are low in calories and fats. 100 g of fresh berries carry 47 calories. Nonetheless, they are one of the nature’s richest sources of flavonoid anthocyanin antioxidants. In addition, the berries contain handsome levels of minerals, vitamins, as well as dietary fiber that is obtained through their peel.
The oxygen radical absorbency capacity or ORAC (measurement of antioxidant strength of food items) demonstrates chokeberry with one of the highest values yet recorded among berries-16,062 micro-moles of Trolox Equivalents (TE) per 100 g. Thus it is effective in preventing against many degenerative diseases, such as cancer and heart disease, and to slow down aging in general. Scientific studies have shown that consumption of berries on a regular basis offers potential health benefits against cancer, aging and neurological diseases, inflammation, diabetes, and bacterial infections.
Eucalyptus –strenghthening the immune system
Eucalyptus is a deverse genus of flowering trees and shrubs in the myrtle family. There are more than 600 species of eucalyptus, mostly native to Austraila and Indonesia. Most of the tree forms are fast-growing, tall (up to 97m), evergreen trees and shrubs.
The Eukalyptus tree provides two active ingredients: eucalyptus leaves and eucalyptus oil. The leaves of Eucalyptus are steam distilled to extract eucalyptus oil. Eucalyptus is composed of various essential oils. The main component of the effectiveness determining ingredient in eucalyptus oil is eucalyptol (1,8-cineol), which must be contained by at least 70% in the oil. Eucalyptus oil has a history of wide application, as a pharmaceutical, antiseptic, repellent, flavouring, fragrance and industrial use.
Because eucalyptus contains antioxidants, it strengthen the immune system during a cold, flu, or other illness, and help fight infection. It is also effective for treating a number of respiratory problems including cold, cough, runny nose, sore throat, asthma, nasal congestion, bronchitis and sinusitis. Eucalyptus oil is antibacterial, antifungal, antimicrobial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory and decongestant in nature, which makes it a good ingredient in many medicines that treat respiratory problems. It is also effective against insects’ bites and stings as well as against muscle and joint pain, from migraines to rheumatism. Eucalyptus is an effective local pain killer.
