Purifies and Detoxifies your Body
The unsaturated fatty acids in Acai eliminate the saturated fatty acids that make you feel tired and sluggish.

Acai contains approx. 44.2 grams of fibre per 100 grams of the berry. Fibre helps prevent constipation, colon cancer and other intestinal disorders.
Acai contains anthocyanins that contributes to the deep color to the fruit. Anthocyanins have many health benefits identified in several studies.

The Acai grows wild in the east side of the Amazon Rain Forest.
The harvest of Acai is done from early August until December. The natives climbs the palm tress reaching 30 to 40 metres heights to cut the branches with the purple acai berries. At Amazon Power, we’re passionate about the environment, and that’s why the harvest of the Acai fruit is performed manually without cutting or damaging the palm tress on which the berries are found. The manual harvest of the berries also provides a living for the local indigenous tribes and in doing so stops them from cutting down the trees and trafficking native to make ends meet.
Our Process of Acai
The harvest of the Acai Berry usually occurs early in the morning before the sun can heat the trunk of the trees. The Acai Berry is stored in hand made baskets and then transported by small boats to the factory that processes the fruit pulp.
