Benefits of Antioxidant Protection
Our body produces free radicals as a by-product of many metabolic processes. Free radicals are molecules with unpaired electrons that have the potential of causing harm if not adequately neutralized by the body’s antioxidant system. While some free radical production is necessary for metabolism and detoxification, excessive amounts of free radicals may lead to compromised health.
Acai is a rich source of anthocyanins and other phenolics. Anthocyanins are compounds that have potent antioxidant activity. By neutralizing these free radicals, anthocyanins from Acai may serve to maintain the healthy function of numerous systems and organs.
