The Color of Fruit from the Jerusalem Post 6/8/2011:

“Blue and Purple

Anthocyanin, the phytochemical that gives blueberries, purple cabbage, acai berries, blackberries, black grapes, eggplant, plums, prunes and figs, amongst others, their dark coloring, is a powerful antioxidant that exhibits cancer-fighting properties. Research on anthocyanin has also shown that it helps to reduce the coagulation of blood platelets, thus preventing the formation of blood clots that can cause stroke, pulmonary embolism, peripheral vascular disease and heart attack. This antioxidant has also been shown to help increase HDL “good” cholesterol while inhibiting the oxidation of LDL “bad” cholesterol, as well as improve memory, prevent molecular degeneration and promote healthy aging.”

MonaVie’s Premier Acai Blend has many of these healthy fruits in it. The fruits work together to give your body a healthy boost of nutrients to fight free radicals that cause illness.

As a way to give back to the land where the acai berry comes from, MonaVie’s MORE Project helps disadvantaged children in Brazil and their families by providing them with education and safe environments for them to learn and grow.
