Acai berries are a deep purple fruit harvested from acai palm trees which are located in the tropical rainforests of Central and South America. This delicious berry has incredibly high levels of antioxidants and is also a source of beneficial flavonoids and polyphenols.
Indigenous Brazilian tribes have consumed Acai berries for thousands of years for their amazing nourishing properties. Legend has it that acai berries saved an indigenous Brazilian tribe from starvation during a time of severe drought. The leader of the tribe Chief Itaki sadly lost his daughter Iaca during the harsh times, but named the life-saving acai berry (Iaca spelt backwards) in her honour.
