Optima’s Acai and Oxy3™ juice is a complex of healthy substances (Red grape juice, Lycopene, Resveratrol) with high antioxidant activity. Acai juice is recommended as a general antioxidant, energetic-tonic and cellular revitalizant. It may also help combat free radicals responsible for premature ageing and regulate plasma cholesterol levels within a balanced diet.
Acai berries come from palm trees that are indigenous to the Brazilian rainforest. For hundreds of years, the small dark berries have been integral to the diet of native Amazon people, promoting overall wellbeing. Acai berries contain extraordinary levels of Anthocyanins, a powerful antioxidant, as well as essential fatty acids that can help reduce cholesterol when used as part of a balanced diet. Acai berries also contain a host of other beneficial nutrients including vitamins, minerals, amino acids and phytosterols. Acai is widely acknowledged to have one of the highest nutritional values of any fruit, hence its association with the term ‘superfood’.
Optima’s Acai Juice is enriched with OXY3, a unique combination of three natural occurring compounds; Red Grape, Lycopene and Resveratrol, which are all rich in free radical scavenging antioxidants.
Red Grape has numerous health benefits, particularly due to the dark skin that contains high levels of flavonoids and anthocyanins which are a potent source of antioxidants.
Lycopene is the main carotenoid found in tomatoes giving the distinctive red colour. Lycopene contains a high level of antioxidants.
Resveratrol naturally occurs in some plants and fruits in response to injury or fungal infection. Resveratol is high in antioxidants and has also been shown to help reduce cholesterol in conjunction with a healthy lifestyle
