Amazing Antioxidants

The prefix ‘anti’ means against, in opposition to, or corrective in nature. In this case, the ‘anti’ in antioxidant describes the effect these chemicals have against oxidants. Oxidants, usually referred to as ‘free radicals’ are produced as a natural by-product of the millions of biochemical processes undertaken by the body every minute. The same life-giving oxygen that supports all the functions of the body creates these harmful by-products which cause cell damage, usually to DNA, fats and proteins. Free radicals also enter the body through external influences such as exposure to the sun, pesticides and other kinds of environmental pollution. In addition, their levels are increased by mental and physical stress, the consumption of alcoholic beverages, unhealthy foods, and cigarette smoke. In much the same way as oxidation causes rust on cars, oxidation inside the body causes a breakdown of cells. If the amount of free radical oxidation in the body is allowed to rise to an unhealthy level, it can result in extensive damage to cellular components and can accelerate the ageing process. More importantly, it may contribute to a wide range of degenerative illnesses and reduce the body’s ability to deal with other problems, including cardiovascular malfunction, eye disease, and cancer. Additionally, it may result in a compromised immune system, leading to immunological disorders and a lessening of the body’s ability to heal wounds and overcome infections. Some studies indicate possible links to arthritis and similar chronic conditions. Antioxidants counter these effects by binding with free radicals before they can cause damage. They then convert them into non-damaging biochemical substances, assisting enormously with the reparation of cellular damage. Certain antioxidant enzymes are produced within the body. The most well known of these are catalase, superoxide dismutase and glutathione: Catalase coverts hydrogen peroxide into water and oxygen. Superoxide dismutase breaks antioxidants down into hydrogen peroxide. Glutathione is a detoxifying agent, changing the form of toxins so that they are easily eliminated by the body. Other antioxidants can be consumed through the diet. Some of the better known include the antioxidant vitamins beta-carotene, vitamin B6, vitamin C and vitamin E. Minerals such as selenium, zinc, glutathione and co-enzyme Q10 may also have antioxidant properties, and so may flavonoids such as cranberry, some amino acids, plus organic extracts from milk thistle and the tree known as ginkgo biloba. A diet rich in fresh fruits and vegetables provides a large supply of these anti-oxidants, to help eliminate damaging free radicals. The highest concentrations are found in fruits and leafy green vegetables, such as carrots, orange and red peppers, spinach and tomatoes. Cooking can destroy some antioxidants and interfere with the body’s ability to absorb them, so eating raw vegetables and fruit, and including sprouts in the diet can help. Steaming vegetables as opposed to frying, microwaving or boiling is also a good idea. Antioxidants are best taken in combination, since single antioxidants, such as vitamin E, need other vitamins in order to work as an effective antioxidant. Food and natural supplements may therefore provide the most bio-available source of antioxidants. Natural products from the rain forests of the world are some of the best sources of natural antioxidants ever found. Fruits like the acai berry are amazing the health world because of the wide range and high number of antioxidants they contain, making them a perfect source of antioxidants. It’s no wonder that the acai berry has been dubbed one of the top 10 “superfoods” in the world.

Acai Berry: The New Superfood?

Organique Acai Premium Blend is the most concentrated acai juice in the market. Growing in the jungle of Amazon are acai (pronounced ah-sigh-ee), the tallest palm trees growing up to 80 feet tall and with pinnate leaves that are about three meters long. Named after the Brazilian Portuguese adaptation of the Tupian word “iwaca’i” which means “fruit that cries and expels water,” these palm trees are often cultivated for their fruits and hearts. Endemic to Brazil, Trinidad and northern South America, the palm trees thrives where the sunlight and shadows meet, usually on the margins of the forest, along the rivers and streams and through the canopy of trees. The palm trees are very useful. Their leaves can be used to create hats, mats, baskets, and brooms as well as roof thatch for houses. Because they are pest resistant, woods from the trunk are best for building construction. The hearts, meanwhile, are a delicacy. Good source of polyunsaturated and saturated fatty acids, the seeds can be gound to make livestock food. But it is the grape-like fruits that most are interested with. The fruits are a major diet component of the Brazilian people living in the Amazon, more than 40 percent of their total food intake. A staple food, fresh acai is often describe as somehow tarty and quite earthy. The fruits are shelled, separating the inedible seed from the pulp and purple skin. People would often bring acai with them while fishing in the river, sprinkling it with toasted cassava. Through the years, there has been a growing global demand for the acai berries. In a blink of an eye, the unassuming berry become a global superfood. In recent years, it has taken the world by storm and becomes the much-hyped food. It has now reached the Philippine shore through Organique Acai Premium Blend. From Left: Cory Quirino, Cathy Salimbangon, Regine Tolentino during the launch of Organique Acai Premium Blend. A registered nurse, Cathy Salimbangon worked in Geriatrics in the US and Canada for several years. She saw how healthy lifestyle can make a good impact on one’s body. In 2009, she and her husband Elton, who worked in a nutraceuticals industry, launched Organique Acai Premium Blend. Among those available in the market, their product has the highest concentration of acai. It also has the USDA Organic Seal, which means that the product is about 95 percent organic, implying that it is free from synthetic additives such as pesticides and fertilizers and not processed using industrial solvents, irradiation or genetic engineering. “We believe it is the king of superfoods. Acai berry is rich in antioxidants which combats cell damage. It is basically a cellular approach. Our cells are being attacked by free radicals from the pollutants around us, antioxidants help repair them,” relates Cathy. It was a claim backed by the National Institutes of Health report: “Acai contains chemicals that are antioxidants. Antioxidants are thought to protect body cells from the damaging effects of chemical reactions with oxygen (oxidation). According to some research, acai has more antioxidant content than cranberry, raspberry, blackberry, strawberry, or blueberry.” In another study, laboratory test showed that a powdered preparation of acai may contains 533.9 calories, 52.2g carbohydrates, 8.1g protein and 32.5g total fat. The fat content consists of oleic acid, palmitic acid and linoleic acid. The carbohydrates include 44.2g dietary fiber. Regine Tolentino shares her experience in drinking Acai berry juice. She tells about taking acai juice when she has hangover. “The pulp and skin of acai fruit are rich in anthocyanins (ACNs), proanthocyanidins (PACs) and fatty acids. It is marketed as a dietary supplement for lowering cholesterol, cardiovascular disease, allergies, and for cancer treatment. In vitro and in vivo studies have shown that acai has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, pro-apoptotic, antitumorigenic, and athero-protective effects. An acai extract inhibited beta-amyloid inhibition, which suggests it may also have neuroprotective activity. Further, nasal acai polysaccharides were found to potentiate innate immunity against pulmonary infections in mice; and oral administration of acai extracts prevented the development of exercise intolerance, cardiac hypertrophy and dysfunction in rats with myocardial infarction. Some laboratory studies suggest acai may reduce cholesterol, prevent diseases of the heart and blood vessels, and cause programmed cell death in leukemia cells. Due to its antioxidant effects, acai may interfere with the actions of certain chemotherapy drugs. Consumption of contaminated acai fruit with insects carrying Trypanosoma cruzii, a protozoan that causes Chagas disease, resulted in 178 cases of acute disease. However, studies in humans are needed to confirm these effects. While proponents claim many health benefits of acai, research on acai berries is limited, and health claims haven’t been proved.” (Source: Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center) Just to be sure, check with your doctor before consuming, especially for people taking medications for high cholesterol or diabetes and those with kidney disease, as large amounts of acai might affect the management of these conditions. Also, it is best to let your doctor know that you are taking acai if you’re scheduled to have a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) test. Very large doses of acai might affect the results of MRI scans. But don’t worry. Acai is practically safe to consume, as long as you are not allergic to it. It can be eaten raw, in tablet form, in beverages (juices, smoothies, energy drink) or in other food products (jelly, ice cream). With Organique Acai Premium Blend, you can drink it as it is. (Cathy recommends 30 to 60ml per day, depending on the health conditions of the person). Or you can try and combine it with other food.
