Acai Berry vs. Pomegranate
Pomegranate (Pom Wonderful), the anti-oxidant rich fruit (juice), became wildly popular in 2005 both for it's health benefits (potent with antioxidants, which help the body guard against free radicals - molecules that can cause premature aging, heart disease, Alzheimer's and cancer)...
and because bars across America started creating yummy specialty drinks with the sweet juice (pomegranate margaritas, monitors and martinis).
Açaí (ah-sigh-ee) is an all-natural energy fruit from Amazon palm berries. Wild harvested in the rainforests of Brazil, açaí tastes like a blend of berries and chocolate. Açaí is packed full of antioxidants, amino acids and essential omegas (the good-for-you fatty acids). The pulp also contains a concentration of antioxidants, to help combat premature aging, with 10-30 times the anthocyanins (purple colored antioxidants) of red wine.
The açaí berry has an almost-perfect essential amino acid complex in conjunction with valuable trace minerals vital to proper muscle contraction and regeneration.
