Açai Juice

Açai (a-sigh-ee) (Euterpe oleracea) is considered to be one of the most nutritious fruits of the Amazon rainforest. It contains Vitamin B1 (Thiamin), Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin), Vitamin B3 (Niacin), Vitamin C, Vitamin E (tocopherol), iron, potassium, phosphorus and calcium. It also contains the essential fatty acids Omega 6 and Omega 9 (these are the healthy fatty acids), and many of the essential amino acids, with a protein profile similar to an egg. And, that is just for starters. What makes Açai unique is that it is very rich in anthocyanins, which are very potent antioxidants. In fact, this amazing fruit contains 33 times more anthocyanins than the red wine grape.

Anthocyanins as a class of nutrients are important in their ability to help prevent generalized cellular damage caused by free radicals in the body.

Açai is an amazing fruit with many health benefits. But, what is truly amazing is that it is only one of the 17 different exotic fruits and herbs contained in Agel EXO, each of which are loaded with health enhancing nutrients.

My sister's kid, Eden, is 5 years old and loves the EXO.
Is it safe to give it to children?

Hello Anat,

In most countries, EXO is consider to be food and not food supplements,
so it is perfectly safe to give it to children.
