Acai is quite the buzzword these days. Whatever the form (juice, frozen pulp, or powder), and whatever you may have heard, it is most likely true. These little purplish-blue berries from the Amazon jungle contain a powerhouse of nutrients. To name a few, they have everything from B-vitamins to zinc!
