Acai bowl benefits
Acai powder and blueberries are full of antioxidants that help to counter the affects of free radical damage and inflammation in the body, thus slowing down the aging process and preventing diseases that are associated with excess inflammation in the body.
As with everything balance is key and the body needs the ability to both inflame as it is a healing response to an injury or irritation along with the ability to anti-inflame. With excess inflammation being at the root of many chronic conditions it is so important to obtain antioxidants in the diet.
It is also necessary to look at what is causing inflammation such as inflammatory foods (gluten, alcohol, dairy and soy are common inflammatory foods), toxins in the environment, stress, infections etc…. and take action to avoid and limit your stressors while increasing the intake of anti oxidant rich foods
