You may have heard of acai berries before – they’re a popular superfood that have gained a lot of attention in recent years. But what makes them so special? According to studies published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, acai berries contain a large number of antioxidants that help scavenge cell-damaging and cancer-causing free radicals.
In fact, researchers at the Department of Nutrition and Food Science at Texas A&M University showed that acai berries possessed the highest antioxidant activity against certain types of free radicals. But that’s not all – a study at the University of Florida has also shown that acai berry extracts can kill leukemia cells when applied directly to them over a 24-hour period.
This effect is attributed to the high concentrations of anthocyanins, a type of flavonoid that gives acai berries their distinctive, black-purple color. So not only do acai berries have powerful antioxidant properties, they may also have anti-cancer properties as well.
It’s important to note that these studies are still in the early stages and more research is needed to fully understand the potential health benefits of acai berries. However, these initial findings are certainly promising and suggest that incorporating acai berries into your diet may have some potential health benefits.
In addition to the potential health benefits of acai berries, we also wanted to let you know about a resource that might be helpful for those interested in incorporating more plant-based foods into their diet for cancer prevention and support.
Our ABCD diet book is the sequel to our kitchen chemotherapy book, and it’s a fascinating, simple, reader-friendly alphabetical guide that lists the key anti-cancer properties of 120 specific plant foods. It also summarizes some of the latest scientific research explaining their role for cancer prevention, prevention of recurrence, and support during, and after treatment.
We hope this resource will be helpful in your journey towards optimal health and wellness.
