Acai is here to stay!

In this industry, we see many things come and go based on hype and sometimes "unreal expectations". Acai is NOT one of these things. We learned about the Acai berry years before it hit the mainstream market from my sister, Brooke, who traveled to Brazil and came back raving about this berry that was eaten for breakfast, lunch, pre/post-workout and more. The Brazilians ate them fresh and loved to make smoothies and "bowls" with the acai berry. They touted the energy they receieved from it and that it helped them achieve that beautiful skin they are famous for. She told us that every street corner had a juice stand and Acai was the primary fruit in these stands, how cool!

We immediately found the acai berry, painted the Juice Bar purple, made it the theme of our menu and started offering the only 100% pure acai smoothies in town.

Several years later, Dr. Oz picked up on it and it hit the big time!

What is so great about the Acai berry is that it delivers on all the promises.
1. Weight Loss: Acai has tons of fiber and omega 3,6 and 9. These two item together aid in weight loss by allowing you to feel full and also lubricating your insides with the omegas which aids in "staying regular."
2. Extremely high in antioxidants. Antioxidants "eat-up" toxins in your body which cause aging, inflammation and all sorts of other bad stuff. For this reason, the acai berry is called the "beauty berry" because you skin benefits from this toxin-eaters.

So, in summary, although the mainstream had it's time with the acai berry, it is not one of those "fads" that go away. This berry is the real deal.

To get the greatest benefit from this berry, I recommend either getting an Acai Energy Smoothie from our Juice Bar AND buying a bottle of Genesis Today ACAI 100 - ABSOLUTELY the ONLY name brand of Acai you should get. You just take 1 oz. a day on an empty stomach.
