NU Açaí & Guaraná

GuaranaNU Açaí & Guaraná is a potent combination. Açaí is rich in the essential fatty acids (omegas 6 and 9) and has a high level of anthocyanins that give rise to powerful antioxidant properties. The antioxidant capacity of Açaí is considerably higher than that of other more conventional fruits such as blueberries. It’s also packed full of vitamins (B, C and E), and minerals (iron, calcium) essential for keeping the body fit and healthy.

Açaí’s health properties are complemented by Guaraná’s capacity to increase mental alertness, fight fatigue, and increase stamina and endurance. The secret to Guaraná’s energy boost is guaranine, a natural form of caffeine. The rainforest tribes in Brazil have long used Guaraná as a stimulant and astringent, and for a multitude of medicinal purposes. In recent years, the use of Guaraná has become widespread. Guaraná is now used in a variety of formats and quite commonly as an energy-boosting additive to drinks.

The resultant blend delivers both immediate and sustained energy, is great tasting, and an all-natural health-boosting package. These benefits have made this combination a hit amongst the surfing, martial arts and fitness communities.

The luring exotic flavour of NU Açaí & Guaraná is for those who want to live fast and stay young.

Nature’s energyThe main source of energy from our food comes in the form of fats, which provide more than twice the calories per gram as either carbohydrates or protein. Whilst carbohydrates (especially in its simple form, sugar) delivered energy to our bodies as fast-releasing energy (causing the peak and crash, or high and low, associated with sweet foods), fats provide in a slow energy release after consumption, meaning that it it provides more sustaining and longer lasting energy. food

AntioxidantsAntioxidants are vital in our diet to protect our bodies against the damaging effects of an excess of substances called “free radicals”. These surplus free radicals may cause cell damage and this may predispose to cancer and other illnesses, and it is thought to be how the ageing process takes place. The antioxidants present in our diet helps to neutralise the free radicals in our body and stop them producing their damaging effect. for anti-aging

Essential fatty acidsFats are essential in our diet, not only to provide our bodies with the energy needed to function, but also to help with the transport and absorption of the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K. The consumption of too much fat in our modern diets is strongly linked with problems such as heart-disease, cancers, obesity and other illnesses. However, not all fats are the same! The problem with most peoples diet is that they are consuming too much of the wrong kinds of fats and probably too little of the healthy types. to enhance ‘good’ cholesterol There are 2 types of cholesterol LDL (bad) and HDL (good): When too much LDL cholesterol circulates in the blood, it can slowly build up in the inner walls of the arteries. Together with other substances, it can form plaque, a thick, hard deposit that can narrow the arteries and make them less flexible. If a clot forms and blocks a narrowed artery, heart attack or stroke can result. Unlike LDL, HDL actually helps to remove cholesterol from the tissues and delivers it to the liver for excretion. and reduce ‘bad’ cholesterol There are 2 types of cholesterol LDL (bad) and HDL (good): When too much LDL cholesterol circulates in the blood, it can slowly build up in the inner walls of the arteries.

PhytosterolsThere are literally thousands of different types of phytochemicals, or plant chemicals, and they include the substances responsible for giving the plant its colour, flavour and odour. Tests have shown that many fruit owe their high levels of antioxidant capacity to a group of phytochemicals, or more specifically, flavonoids. to reduce blood plasma cholesterol
