... Berry and what it can do, your article does not explain that. What does Acai Berry do and causing it to be so popular?

Hi, there really wasn't much science-based information to report on about Ašai that might justify just why it is (or was so popular). It basically skyrocketed in popularity after being featured on the Oprah Show.

Ašai, and fruit in general (along with fresh vegetables) is an important part of a healthy diet. Diets high in fruits and vegetables have been shown to improve health, lower blood pressure, reduce the risk of heart disease, strokes and certain cancers.

Ašai is also high in phytochemicals, which may add even more health benefits.

Thank you for commenting. I hope this helps.

Happy Gardening,
