Acai berries are the fruits of the acai palm tree found in Central and South America. These reddish-purple fruits are 1-2 cm in diameter, and the seeds constitute around 80% of the fruits. Acai berries are touted as superfoods as they are nutritionally superior to other berries like raspberry and blueberry. These berries are highly effective in lowering cholesterol and aiding weight loss (1).
