Acai

First and foremost, it has been scientifically proven to improve your Jiu-Jitsu by 27%*

Acai is packed with antioxidants especially anthocyanins. Anthocyanins help us by preventing the oxidation of cholesterol, which causes the build up of plaque in our arteries.

The Acai berry is very rich in fiber which helps with our digestion, making it a perfect healthy snack!

Acai has a fatty acid similar to olive oil, with these essential fatty acids are needed for a well functioning cardiovascular and nervous system, Acai also contains amino acids which help promote muscle performance, energy production, endurance and strength.

Acai berries contain as much Vitamin C as blueberries and is a source of Vitamins A, B1, B2, B3 and E. It is also a source of calcium, magnesium, zinc and copper.

*This is not true and I made it up, but acai tastes really good and that's almost the same thing.*
