Acai Berries are harvested in the Rainforests of Brazil and has grown in popularity over the last few years for two reasons.

Acai berries have a rich blend of flavors and its dark purple shade gives it a pleasant taste of mixed berries. Its powder can be mixed in shakes, placed into yogurt or in fruit salads. Its nutrient content is worth noting since it is high in amino acids, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids. This extremely rich ‘vitamin berry’ is a great energy booster and can be used in the popular goji-acai-mangosteen combination.

The Best Way to Take Acai
Most companies are selling acai in the juice form, and just like the goji juice, the market was taken over by MLM which tends to jack up the price. There is a problem with freeze drying the acai berries due to its high fat content, it tends to oxidize, making it difficult to import. However, you could get the freeze dried berry powder at the health food store and can enjoy all its health benefits without the expensive cost of the MLM juices. Unlike dried gojis, acai berries cannot be shipped. Due to its high fatty acid content, the berries tend to oxidize, so the most efficient way to import these nutritious berries is in the freeze dried powder form.
Mangosteen is the third of the goji-acai-mangosteen combination and offers considerable health benefits.
Mangosteen grows in abundance in Thailand where the local residents eat this delicious fruit in order to achieve good health and longevity. Here are just a few of its health benefits: Energy booster
- Lowers cholesterol
- Lowers blood pressure
- Helps fight viruses and infections
- Helps protect the heart
- Reduces allergy symptoms
- Support bone density
- Reduces fever and pain
Since mangosteen is indigenous to Thailand, most of the research on the fruit emanated from there. The main focus was on the ability to prevent cancer. The studies showed that mangosteen extract has the ability to increase the body’s immune response, however, it was felt that in order to derive a therapeutic effect, one needed to take very large doses of both the fruit juice and peel. Researchers warn that this large amount could cause side effects such as constipation, diahrea and itching. Many of the areas where mangosteen seem to have its greatest therapeutic affect is in the stomach and bowels. Such conditions as crohn’s, and stomach reflux seem to show a more consistent improvement than in other conditions.
Make a combination of goji-acai-mangosteen in your daily routine. You’re almost guaranteed to improve your health, and vibrancy. You could do your own experience. Try taking two weeks of goji, and note how you feel. Then take acai daily for another two weeks and mark down any changes in your health. Lastly, take the mangosteen for another two weeks and again take good notes of any changes in your energy level, weight, sleep. Then, take all three on a daily basis. Try to establish a dosage for yourself.
