The King of Superfoods is now in a drink in the form of Organique Acai Premium Blend. I’m referring to acai (pronounced ah-sah-ee), a small, dark purple berries said to be rich in antioxidants. I’ve heard of this berry years back and is actually being sold as a supplement in capsule form. Back then, it’s not readily available in the country and is very expensive. Learning that it is now available in the Philippines is good news.
The acai is the tallest palm tree in the Amazon jungle that can grow up to 80 feet. For centuries, it has been part of the indigenous people of Brazil’s diet. Cathy Salimbangon, Vice-President for Marketing of Organique Inc shared, “They consume it regularly and it is what they use to remedy aches and pains, from infection to stomach problems.”
The berry is considered at the top of list when talking about superfoods because it is rich in antioxidants which combats cell damage. We all know that as we grow old and because of our environment, the cells in our body deteriorates. The antioxidants in Acai is said to be capable of healing our body from all the damage. “It’s basically a cellular approach, our cells are being attacked by free radicals from the pollutants around us, antioxidants help repair them,” Cathy simplifies. “So your body is replenished and functions better overall. You have more energy, signs of aging are delayed, your immune system is strengthened,” she enumerates. Acai berries also contain omega oils which is necessary for the proper function of the brain and cardiovascular system. “It has all the basic vitamins and minerals that our body needs aside from being high in dietary fiber.”
It’s been two weeks that I’ve been drinking a jigger of Organique Acai Premium Blend daily first thing in the morning. Although I missed a few times, I can attest to it’s effectiveness. I noticed that I get a really good sleep even when I go to bed late. I also feel renewed when I wake up in the morning. Before taking the drink, I’ve been very sluggish even if I get a full 8 hours of sleep. There’s been no changes in my daily routine. In fact, I’ve had more stressful days, but I really feel good and so I attest that to drinking Organique Acai.
I haven’t tried other acai product, but if the effects of this premium blend is evident on the first 2 weeks of drinking, I’d like to believe that what Cathy said is true. She claims that “Among those available in the market, our product has the highest concentration of Acai and we are USDA organic-certified, the United States Department of Agriculture sets the standards for US organic products.” The USDA Organic seal indicates that the content of a product is 95% or more certified organic. Meaning, free of synthetic additives like pesticides, chemical fertilizers and dyes and must not be processed using industrial solvents, irradiation or genetic engineering.
TV host and wellness icon Cory Quirino, who has been aware of the health benefits of acai berry long before it hit Philippine shores, was more than happy to advocate Organique Acai Premium Blend. “Organique Acai Premium Blend keeps me feeling good and looking good,” she was heard saying during the intimate lunch with the media held recently. Even during out of town trips, Cory makes sure she takes her daily dose and she drinks it in large quantity. Instead of a jigger, she drinks a glass.
Dancer and fitness enthusiast Regine Tolentino also testified, “Organique Acai Premium Blend helps maintain my energy level throughout the day, even with back to back Zumba classes.”
The recommended dose of Organique Acai Premium Blend is 30-60ml per day depending on the health conditions of the person. “If you’re down with something, you can double dose or triple dose it because you need more nutrients when you’re sick. It is best taken with an empty stomach — pure, with water, with ice or added to your smoothie,” suggests Cathy.
