BUT did you know that Acai is actually a type of Superfood? Superfoods are literally super foods, and are the most nutritious natural foods around of us with a high content of vitamins and minerals there to help you, your body and your skin thrive.

Seems to good to be true... right? 

Nature is a clever clever thing, and superfoods are often brightly coloured, this is called a Phytochemical. Phytochemicals attract us not only with their beautiful bright colours, but with their delicious smells and tastes too. So way back when, when we weren't as fortunate and surrounded by nutritious food as we are nowadays, gatherers new to choose these foods over others because they were much more inviting.
