Acai contains several substances called anthocyanins and flavonoids very important for the health of your body and immune system.
Anthocyanins are responsible for the red, purple, and blue hues in many fruits, vegetables, and flowers.
Foods that have the most anthocyanins are blueberries, red grapes, red wine, like the acai have similarities in color ranging from deep purple to black showing it is very rich with this nutrient.
By reducing free radicals with antioxidants this could help reduce the risk of some diseases, such as heart disease and cancer which is one of its big claims that I personally believe.
