(PRWEB) November 12, 2004 -- A previously little-known fruit harvested from the Brazilian rainforest is now gaining recognition for its high levels of the cholesterol-fighting fatty acids, Omega 6 and Omega 9, and its strong concentration -- up to 33 times that found in red wine grapes -- of anthocyanin, a powerful anti-oxidant.
The recent availability of this new health supplement stems from the acquisition of exclusive rights to offer a concentrated extract of the acai berry by Life Dynamics Technology of Tustin, Cal. The rich organic chemical composition of this berry portends a cost-effective alternative to buying single-purpose health supplements separately.
The extract is highly concentrated, requiring over four kilograms of acai berry pulp to make a single kilogram of the 100-percent extract via the process employed by Life Dynamics. Preparation within 24 hours of harvest in an FDA-approved pharmaceutical lab enables the acai extract to be more bio-effective than refrigerated drinks or dried powders.
The effectiveness of the acai extract is born out by research that shows the essential fatty acids, Omega 6 (Linoleic acid) and Omega 9 (Oleic acid), contained in the extract can help battle harmful LDL cholesterol, while helping to maintain beneficial HDL levels. The fatty acid ratio of the acai berry resembles that of olive oil, which is thought to be a contributing factor to the low incidence of heart disease in Mediterranean populations according to the National Cholesterol Education Program and MarketResearch.com.
"When my life insurance policy expired, I had to look for a new policy," says John L. of Portland Oregon. "To my surprise, I found I could not qualify for low rate insurance policies because my blood lab tests showed my cholesterol, triglyceride, HDL, LDL ratio in abnormal ranges. But after taking the Dynamic Life acai capsules for two months, I was then able to qualify for a low insurance rate."
The acai berry is especially noteworthy for the antioxidant properties afforded by its concentration of anthocyanin -- which is also present in red wine -- that prevents oxidants from harming connective tissue while repairing damaged proteins in blood vessel walls. This helps explain the "French Paradox." The French, who are noted wine drinkers, have one of the lowest incidences of heart disease of any westernized society despite a diet high in cholesterol and saturated fat.
The acai extract also provides a natural range of important vitamins and minerals including vitamin B1 (Thiamin), vitamin B2 (Riboflavin), vitamin B3 (Niacin), vitamin C, vitamin E, as well as minerals such as iron, calcium, copper, zinc, potassium, phosphorus, and magnesium. These, along with essential amino acids and natural fiber, help with proper muscle contraction, regeneration, and digestion.
Getting this range of vitamins and minerals from the acai extract alone has saved some consumers a substantial amount of money and provided an energy boost to others.
"With the acai capsules, I cut half my cost of buying vitamin and mineral supplements separately," says Edgar C. of Spartanburg, South Carolina.
"I feel more energetic, balanced, and alert after taking the acai capsules," says Donald C. of Newport Beach, Cal.
The Life Dynamics acai capsules are made from an all-natural plant base that is Kosher, vegan, and halal certified with no added ingredients.
