Acai by Dr. Whittaker
Dr. Whittaker's Newsletter
One type of juice merits a big thumbs up: acai. Juice from the small, dark acai berries of the Euterpe olerace palm has been used for centuries in the Amazon rainforest to increase strength and stamina. Acai is loaded with anthocyanins, known for their beneficial effects on the eyes, blood vessels, connective tissues, and nervous system. In fact, acai contains more antioxidant-rich anthocyanins than cranberries, red wine and grapes. Acai's ORAC value is more than 6000. Unlike most juices, most of acai's calories come not from sugar but from the healthful omega-6 and omega-9 fats. It also contains healthy doses of fiber, potassium, iron, vitamins C and E and other nutrients. This is one juice you can feel good about drinking. I recommend pure, unsweetened acai, sold in liquid form or powdered form that can be reconstituted. Look for it in your health food store.
