What makes ALL of our Juice blends work while others don’t? Processing!
We always use the best ingredients available; certified Organic
ingredients. Companies sell these type products and there is literally no
benefit to the product if the processing is done with heat or the
ingredients are not healthy plants to begin with. Trust is more than a five
letter word, it is earned everyday here at LifeSource Vitamins!

Our unique combination of juices in our Acai Juice Blend can provide
the following components vital to optimum health and vitality:
Essential Vitamins and Minerals:
B1, B2, B3, C & E, Calcium and Potassium.
Essential Fatty Acids:
(Omega-3, Omega-6, and Omega-9). These polyunsaturated essential fatty
acids help lower LDL (harmful cholesterol) while maintaining HDL
(beneficial cholesterol). This unique ratio resembles the same
combination as olive oil. Omega fatty acids can increase healthy cell
development. Omega fatty acids are essential for healthy nervous system
development and regeneration. They help rapidly repair and rejuvenate
muscles after intense exercise. Essential fatty acids (Omega-3 in
particular) help the brain to run smoothly.
Other Facts about Acai:
Acai is a dense source of particular class of flavonoids called
anthocyanins (red-blue phenols with potent antioxidant properties)
Anthocyanins are a group of phyto-chemicals 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 (5). Acai pulp
contains 10-30 times the anthocyanins of red wine per equal volume (1).
The primary anthocyanin in Acai is cyanidin-3 glucoside (1), Cyanidin-3-
glucoside has been found to be 3.5 times stronger than Trolox (vitamin E
analogue) and the predominate anthocyanin found in red wine
(nalvadin-3-glucoside) in an ORAC analysis (measure of antioxidant
Anthocyanins have been found to "exhibit numerous potential therapeutic
effects including treatment of diabetic retinopathy and fibrocystic disease
of the breast in human" (2). "Other potential physiological effects of
anthocyanins include radiation protective, chemo-protective,
vaso-protective and anti-inflammatory agents" (2),
The fatty acid ratio of Acai resembles that of olive oil, which is
thought to be a contributing factor to the low incidence of heart disease
in Mediterranean populations (1, 5),
60% Oleic (Omega 9) a monounsaturated, essential fatty acid, helps lower
LDL (harmful cholesterol) while maintaining HDL, (beneficial cholesterol)
12% Linoleic (Omega 6) a polyunsaturated, essential fatty acid, has been
found to lower both LDL and HL levels (5).
Fatty acids aid in the transport and absorption of fat-soluble vitamins
ice. Vitamins A, E, D, and K(3).
Acai contains valuable phytosterols
Sterols are components of plant cell membranes providing numerous
benefits to the human body, namely the reduction of blood plasma
Sterols are currently being used to treat symptoms associated with BP.
12 Potential Health Benefits of Acai:
Heart Health* -
Similar to red wine, research shows that acai berries are extremely high in
anthocyanins, a form of plant antioxidant associated with the ability to
lower cholesterol levels in the blood stream. They are also rich in plant
sterols that provide cardio-protective benefits to our cells. It does this
by preventing blood clots, improving overall blood circulation, and
relaxing the blood vessels.
Resistant to Harmful Organisms* -
Scientists from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro have shown that
consuming acai extract may help fight harmful organisms.
Aids in Weight Loss* -
Known by nutritionists as a super-food, acai may help us not only lose
weight, but maintain a healthy weight. One interesting study from the
National Institutes of Aging found that pulp from the acai berry had the
ability to reduce the negative effects of a high-fat diet in laboratory
studies on flies.
Promotes Skin Health* -
Currently, many modern beauty products are carrying acai oil, again due to
the oil’s high antioxidant content. What is more, acai oil is a great
natural alternative to chemical based skin-care products that harm the skin
in the long-run. Taken internally, the berries can also give your skin a
healthier glow. In fact,
Brazilians have been eating acai berries for centuries to treat skin
Helps with Digestive Upset* -
Taking acai may also aid in keeping our digestive system clean and in
optimal function. The berries have powerful detoxification capacities in
the human body and are a well-known traditional source of dietary fiber. Of
course, there are many other high fiber foods that can do the same thing,
including many other types of berries.
Reduces Irritation* -
Acai berries contain properties may prevent the typical irritation
associated with respiratory distress.
Improved Cellular Health* -
On a general level, the anthocyanins found in acai play a role in our
cellular protection system, helping to keep cells strong against the
invasion of free radicals.
Anti-Aging Effects* -
Extremely high in many forms of plant phytochemicals (antioxidants), acai
berries may contribute to an ability to slow or reverse typical processes
of aging related to oxidative damage. In fact, the berries are one of the
planets highest sources of antioxidants, with one berry holding ten times
the amount of antioxidants as grapes, and two times the amount of
Energy Boost* -
Due its overall health benefits, taking acai extract can lead to an
increased overall level of energy and stamina, and may aid to combat
fatigue and exhaustion. Whenever you need a boost, simply eat a handful of
berries and you will be ready to go in no time!
Improves Mental Function* -
Preliminary research studies show that acai could help prevent mental
imbalance in menopausal women.*
