What is Acai and Acai Berries?

RioLife acai (ah-sigh-ee) is an all natural energy berry from Amazon palm trees. Wild harvested in the rainforests of Brazil, RioLife acai tastes like a unique blend of berries and chocolate. Hidden within its royal purple pigment is the magic that makes it nature's perfect energy fruit. RioLife acai is packed full of antioxidants, amino acids and essential omegas (the good-for-you fatty acids). Using a traditional recipe, RioLife adds a touch of pure Brazilian guarana, for increased stamina, focus and vitality.

Guarana is a revitalizing seed that has been used by Amazonian tribal people for centuries. The seed is ground into a powder and consumed before battle and extended hunting trips. Guarana is esteemed throughout the world for its ability to sustain strength and heighten awareness while containing relatively low levels of caffeine (about as much as a decaf coffee).

The acai berry is still hand packed by the native Amazonians and then sent down the forest road to the packing area and pulped. The pulp is then lightly pasteurized and instantly frozen so that none of the goodies can get out! This pulp can be blended into all sorts of wonderful things like smoothies, juices and of course the famous "Rio Bowl". We reckon this is the worlds next big health discovery, and we are not the only ones!

RioLife acai is naturally organic, shipped from the Amazon straight to the shores of Sydney. RioLife acai berries grow wild on an island in Belem do para, which utilises a non-polluting and pesticide free harvesting and packing procedure. The acai from this area of Brazil is arguably the highest quality, so be wary of acai from anywhere else. We also take great care to make sure the supply chain is closely monitored and the fruit is not at risk of heat damage.

RioLife acai has heaps of good stuff that gives you an awesome energetic lift, having an exotic taste that will give your taste buds something to remember.
