Aside from being a refreshing bowl, acai berries have many potential health benefits. Acai is high in antioxidant content meaning it has benefits for your brain, heart and overall health. It is called a superfood as it is believed to have more antioxidant properties than cranberries, raspberries, and blackberries. It is also a great source of healthy fats and fiber.
