In today’s world, many of us have specific requirements when it comes to our dietary and food choices. From keto to vegan, and everything in between, most of us have unique needs that reflect the variety and diversity of ourselves as individuals.
This is where açaí is a one-size-fits-all. As a low sugar, high antioxidant, nutrient packed, delicious, and unique fruit, it checks all the boxes. Whether you are trying to avoid sugar, support your longevity, meet nutrient requirements, satisfy your hunger, or hang with the health and wellness cool-kids, açaí fits the bill.
Along with the diverse health properties, açaí is a sustainable resource of the Amazon Rainforest. The açaí palm trees can be harvested sustainably twice each year without any harm to the forest. Harvested from wild trees by locals, the demand for açaí prevents further deforestation of the Amazon and supports local communities by providing nourishment for their bodies and their wallets.
This means that while you fuel your body with this incredible power house of a fruit, you also support the preservation of the precious Amazonian Rainforest, and the people who live there.
This is something we feel good about, which is why we started Inner Glow Superfoods in the first place. We want to share this special fruit with all of you. No matter where you are in the world and what dietary choices you stand by.
