Maya Gold Trading’s organic freeze-dried açaí powder is 100% fruit, obtained from açaí puree that has been frozen and freeze-dried. It is completely free from alcohol, preservatives, irradiation, and fermentation. As soon as the berries are harvested and produced they are frozen or freeze-dried in order to preserve their nutritional value.
These small berries pack a punch! Açaí berries are nutrient-dense and loaded with antioxidants. They also have anti-inflammatory properties and help fight free radicals. Specifically, açaí berries are abundant with the antioxidant anthocyanin which has been shown to enhance memory and improve blood flow to the brain. Studies have found that anthocyanin can also lower oxidative stress, and when taken regularly, can reduce the risk of heart attack.
