Both Green Tea and the Acai Berry work synergistically to promote the health effects of one another. The two ingredients have similar properties with beneficial roles in metabolism and weight management.
The Acai Berry
The acai (ah-sigh-ee) plant belongs to the palm family, evident in the characteristic feature of a tall, think trunk with ribbon-like leaves at the very top of the tree. The berry was originally used by native tribes in the Amazon rainforest for its therapeutic properties to cure various ailments. Today, the fruit has been given the term 'superfood' due to its antioxidative and anti-inflammatory properties. The fruit may also be cardioprotective and neuroprotective. The Acai Berry has a high fibre content at 44.2g per 100g, a nutrient that increases satiety to keep us feeling full for longer and ultimately aids weight loss.
Green Tea was first knowingly sourced in 2737 BC in China. For many years, all tea was essentially green tea as the leaves had not undergone any of the oxidation process which most tea leaves go through today. Green Tea is cultivated from Camellia sinensis, a species of evergreen which possesses glossy green pointed and fragrant leaves. Green Tea has gained status amongst other 'superfoods' due to its many health properties. For instance, evidence supports the use of Green Tea to maintain heart health through the prevention of cholesterol absorption. The tea also aids metabolism, including fat oxidation and the prevention of the accumulation of triglycerides which helps with weight maintenance. Evidence also suggests that Green Tea may be beneficial at night, aiding a good nights sleep to allow recovery of our immune system and cognitive system. Through getting a good nights rest, we also feel less fatigued the following day, hence Green Tea aids the reduction of feelings of fatigue.
