4 Other Reasons To Tuck Into An Açaí Bowl
Hailed as a superfood among health professionals, the açaí berry is jam-packed with antioxidants & utterly delicious!
Native to the Amazon rainforest in Brazil, the açaí berry is not only really delicious, it also offers multiple health and beauty benefits. Loaded with powerful plant compounds that act as antioxidants, the dynamic superfruit, which isn’t technically a berry as it has a pit, is good for the brain, heart and overall health.
Tropicool, the Brazilian brand that uses non-frozen super fruits from the Amazon to serve up their famous açaí and mango bowls, smoothies and specials, shares the incredible benefits.

They also have incredibly high amounts of antioxidants, almost three times the amount found in regular blueberries.
