What is Best for Me - Acai Powder or
Well, this depends upon preference and convenience. If you lead a busy life, and do not have
time to allocate towards preparing Acai - based powder foods, then the capsules are perhaps a better choice.
On the other hand, if you are planning on making Acai Berry the basis of a meal replacement program, or just
simply using the powder as a great tasting super supplement - then the powder option is the better
alternative. We suggest keeping a supply of both - once you
begin your journey with Acai, it is hard to stop!
8. What is the Recommended
This really comes down to preference again - as Acai is a food and not a medicine,
one can consume as much as they like. We suggest using between 2 - 3 scoops of Acai powder (10 - 15 grams)
each serving, as this provides the body with a big hit of nutrition. Acai is virtually a complete food, and
has a broad nutritional profile - with a healthy balance of bio - available protein, quality essential omega
fatty acids, vitamins, minerals and soluable fiber.
use these superfoods report back to us that a most pleasant side effect of consuming a liberal amount of Acai each day is the regularity of their bowel
movements - more important to the health of an
individual than most of us realize!
9. Will this
supplement Contravene any Medication that I May be Using?
No, since Acai is a food, there are no known contraventions between one's
pharmaceutical medication and the Acai Berry. But as with anything requiring further clarification about one's
health, it is always advisable to consult your doctor.
10. How Long Will it Keep
Our Acai products have a shelf life of 18 months unopened - and then approximately one month
once opened. Obviously Acai will keep longer than this, but we suggest that in order to maintain freshness and
maximum bio activity, it is best to consume within this period. If
possible, keep the powder / capsules refridgerated and cool - as this will ensure the integrity of the
product is maintained.
11. Can I consume Acai Whilst Pregnant?
During pregnancy, there is an increased requirement for quality nutrition that contains a broad
spectrum of micronutrients - so yes, this food is safe whilst being pregnant or breastfeeding. Still, we
suggest consulting with your health care practitioner for absolute clarity on the matter.
12. What is the Shelf Life of Acai?
As a general rule
of thumb your our Acai products have a shelf life of approximately 18 - 24 months whilst unopened.

refridgerate when opened.
