For this comparison, we selected the leading açaí
blend. The processing method of this
particular one was confirmed to be that which
lab testing indicated was optimum to lock in the
Science Corner). The ingredients
first, indicating it is the most prominent.
From everything we could determine, and was
visually evident, this product had not gone
through filtering of the high-fiber,
nutrient-rich pulp solids, clarification
processes which would pull out the unique omega
fatty acid profile of
or excessive heat exposure in many popular
dehydrating or pasteurizing methods.
According to independent
testing we found, consuming the optimal amount
(2oz. twice a day), would be the antioxidant
equivalent to 13 - 14 servings of fruit daily.
Breaking down the product serving size and cost
to a daily amount, rather than per bottle, which
would last 6.3 days, or about a week, made it
more relevant. We found that the cost
would average $5.13 USD per day.
With that rather impressive benchmark of 13 to
14 servings it was off to a major chain grocery
store for the comparison. The target was a
total of 13 standard servings of a variety of
fruits. Attention was paid to get some
dark-pigmented berries, as that is an indication
of high antioxidants inherent with the fruit.
A variety of locally available fruits that were
available at a reasonable price was selected.
Here was the result of this small comparison,
presented with the trendy alternative.
A 30-second solution, that most report actually
looking forward to everyday, for about one third
the daily cost, May be just the solution for the
vast majority who will probably never
consistently even get the 7-9 servings of fruit
and vegetables per day, let alone 13-14.
While this comparison, May not be an exact
science, as the lab-derived charts later in this
issue are; It does give a good picture of one of the
reasons this type of functional beverage is
gaining loyal fans at an appalling rate.
With science now telling us what enemy #1 is in
premature aging and the precursor for disease
and spelling out the clear weapon - we are armed
with the tools to reverse the downward spiral.
Like anything in life, it comes down to personal
choice. However, given the destruction and
implications of the relentless work of free
radicals in our body, if not countered by
nutrients-dense, antioxidant-rich super foods,
- we believe it comes down to two words.
It's about 'Health Equity'. What are you
