The acai berry is a berry found in the Amazon Rainforest of Brazil. The natives of Brazil have harvested this little grape-sized purple fruit for hundreds of years. Believed to possess special healing powers, the natives of Brazil continue to eat the fruit.
The natives of Brazil call the fruit "içá-çai," which means the fruit that cries. The acai berry is also part of Brazilian folklore.
As the story goes, the king of the Amazon had a daughter named, Iaca. Because there was no food, he ordered that all newborn babies be killed so that his people would not have to worry about feeding them. However, the king's daughter, Iaca, became pregnant and had a baby.

True to his word, the king ordered Iaca's baby to be killed. Iaca mourned many days and nights for her baby. One night, during a full moon, Iaca heard the cries of a baby and ran to find it. She saw her baby daughter lying under a tree with purple fruit.
She ran to her baby and sat there crying and holding her baby. The next day, when Iaca was nowhere to be found, the king sent his men out to find her. They found her dead under the tree, her arms around the trunk, holding it, and looking up into the center of the purple-fruited tree.
The king so distraught over the loss of his daughter rescinded his order to have all newborns killed. He was also so happy to see the fruit, which he ordered named Acai, after his daughter, which is Iaca backwards. The king moved his people to the area surrounding the tree. His people became more energetic as they ate the fruit and lived long, healthy lives.
Acai Berry
As the talk of this new fruit spread, Brazilians, within the cities, also discovered the acai berry. It is now one of the most common breakfast fruits in Brazil. Acai berries are also recommended to participants of workouts and futebol (soccer) players prior to their games to help give them energy. The futebol players take the berries and mix the frozen pulp with guarana (a fruit that contains twice as much caffeine as a coffee bean) as a natural energy booster.
With the popularity of this little berry, doctors and researchers decided to ru

n studies to find out what properties this purple berry from the Amazon held. It was discovered that the acai berry possesses more antioxidants and health properties than any other fruit in the world. After the research and studies were done, the acai berry was introduced all over Brazil where it was made into fruit bars, and drinks, such as smoothies. After the introduction into the health world, the acai berry became more popular than ever.

Even with all the health benefits that the acai berry provides, it has only been recently that the acai berry colon cleansing was introduced to the United States. However, this little berry, claimed to be the "number one super food in the world," continues to live up to its claims.
