All Better!

I'm all better and I really think the Acai Berry is the reason my cold only lasted a few days. It was just a cold, but it was Doozy starting in my head and then dropping like a ton of bricks into my chest overnight. For two days I laid like a slug in bed, not even taking a shower. Day three I went to the store and bought Sambazon Antioxidant Elixir. The bottle said it provides powerful antioxidants and 600% DV Vitamin C... just what I needed!
Açaí 101
Acai (ah-sigh-ee), the fruit that's making believers of world-class athletes and health-conscious people everywhere. Grown in the Amazon rainforest, acai is truly a gift from Mother Nature. It has a rich, berry-cocoa flavor that makes it taste amazing, and its packed with more antioxidants than blueberries or pomegranates, plus loads of healthy Omega fats, protein and dietary fiber.

Açaí pulp contains:
• A remarkable concentration of antioxidants, to help combat premature aging, with 10 times the anthocyanins (purple colored antioxidants) of red wine.

• A synergy of monounsaturated (healthy) fats, dietary fiber and phytosterols, to help promote cardiovascular system and digestive tract health.

• An almost perfect essential amino acid complex in conjunction with valuable trace minerals, vital to proper muscle contraction and regeneration.
Açaí is a dense source of particular class of flavonoids called anthocyanins (red-blue phenols with potent antioxidant properties)

• Anthocyanins are a group of phytochemicals in red wine thought to contribute to the French paradox, i.e. France has one of the lowest incidences of heart disease of any westernized society despite a prevalence of smoking and a diet high in saturated fat and cholesterol. Açaí pulp contains 10 times the anthocyanins of red wine per equal volume.

*All of these claims are documented at Sambazon's website.

Why is it so pricey? This LINK shows the process of getting the Acai Berry from jungle to finished product. I paid $7.99 for the 32 oz. bottle...
a small price for getting back in the race again!


  1. Wow, Sambazon needs to put YOU on their advertising payroll!!! Quite convincing.

  2. I totally believe in vitimin C...some say oh it doesn't really do anything! But I have had 8 kids and over the years when sickness first raises it's head I would have them increase the C and in 3 days they started going the other way so I kow it works! I use "Emergin-C" works great too. Glad you are well! Come say hi :D

  3. I am so glad you better in time for the holiday and traveling.

  4. So glad to hear you're feeling better. And how on earth to do you come up with these amazing topics?!

  5. I have a wine bottle shaped bottle of acai that is live? Anyway, you drink two ounces per day and I guess you live forever. It also comes in pill form. Glad you're better.

  6. I'm glad you're better! If it really is that good it might be something to have a little of every day even when you're not sick. Going to go grocery shopping today and will look for some. I need all the anti-aging I can get!

  7. Interesting but can't easily find it over here. Thanks for sharing! Glad that you're in full recovery!
