Organique Açaí: The Premium Health Food

Organique, Inc. is a US based company with the purpose of developing trade and retail food supplements made from açaí berry.

Açaí berries are considered superfood, a term being used to describe nutrient-rich food that is good for one’s health. As a support to this, these berries are known for having one of the highest concentrations of antioxidants amongst all fruits and vegetables and are a good source of vitamins and minerals. ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) values measure the amount of antioxidant per 100 grams of herb and botanical and research shows that açaí berries contains a whopping 100,000 units.

Antioxidants breakdown the free radicals in our bodies that if unchecked can cause damage to our cells resulting to a wide range of illness and diseases. They bene􀃶t the body primarily by boosting the oxidation and ridding of free radicals and improving the immune system leading to disease and illness prevention, skin disease, heart health and memory health.
