Acai Berry Testimonial - Part 5 of 12 - Acai Berry Testimonial

Elenor Duckens:

"I have always been a person who did not have much energy. However, my life is, and has been filled with many things that I do on a daily basis.

I have a highly stressful job, and because of my commitment and dedication to serving God and His people, I am very involved in Church work. I am the ninth of twelve children, and we were raised by our parents to always be there for each other.

My oldest brother is the Pastor of the church that I attend. In 1997, he had his first heart attack, and then had three additional ones between November and December 2001. At the time of his last heart attack, he was diagnosed as a diabetic.

On Monday, May 9, 2005 he was admitted to the hospital because his feet are very infected due to diabetes. On the evening of Friday, May 13, 2005 he experienced severe chest pains and was put in ICU.

That Friday morning before going to the hospital, my younger brother had told me about the Fruta Vida Acai Berry Drink, and that Arvall Hall was going to meet with him and explain the drink. I had my brother to set up a conference call so that I could ask Arvall several questions to determine the legitimacy of the product.

After our conversation, I was impressed with the product and invited Arvall to come to my house for further discussion. He had met with me, and gave me a sample of this great drink.

I drank the drink and immediately began to feel great. When we were told that my brother was to be placed in ICU, a sister of mine and I decided that we would stay in the hospital with him all night. During the night, my sister had a very hard time staying awake, but I was wide awake and was able to be there for my brother all through the night.

In fact, I did not lay down to sleep until 8:00 p.m. the next day which was Saturday, May 14, 2005. I did not feel tired or irritable during the day. When I decided to lay down on Saturday evening, I had one of the best sleeps I had had in a long time and awoke on Sunday morning feeling fresh, energized, and ready to go to church and worship Christ.

I am so thankful to God for this product and to Arvall for sharing The Acai Berry with me."

Acai Berry Testimonial - Part 4 of 12 - Acai Berry Testimonials.

Testimonial From Fruta Vida user - Fruta Vida is a potent Acai Berry Drink.

Nicole Pugh

Dear Fruta Vida,
I was diagnosed with internal scleroderma, an auto immune disease, in 1998. This disease is said to be incurable and its defining characteristic are the building up of collagen in the internal organs.

Scleroderma patients develop symptoms such as extreme fatigue, joint and muscle pain, circulation problems to the extremities and severe digestive problems, just to name a few.

About a year ago, I began really feeling the affects of this slow-moving, but sometimes fatal, disease. I began sleeping more (sometimes 11-13 hours a night just to make it through the day), was experiencing joint and muscle pain and also developed digestive problems (including intolerance to wheat, corn, dairy, sugar and soy).

What affected me most of all, however, was that no matter how much I slept, I was always fatigued. I was beginning to become depressed and had given up on a lot of my projects, hopes and dreams. I simply did not have the energy to do anything other than go to work and fall into bed each night.

Well, all that changed three weeks ago!

From the moment I began taking Fruta Vida, I noticed a difference! I now have more energy. My thinking is clearer, my mood is brighter and I do not fall into bed at nine o`clock every night! I now get 7-8 restful hours of sleep and have energy to burn.

As a "lagniappe" (that`s N`awlins-speak for something a little extra), now I can go out with friends on a weeknight (and stay out a little late) and not fall apart at work the next day! 2-3 ounces of Fruta Vida a day (in addition to maintaining a healthy lifestyle) has helped with my digestion as well.

I haven`t had a digestive flare-up in the three weeks since I have taken the product. In all honesty, I haven`t felt this good and had this much energy in a long, long time. I look forward to what life has in store for me in the months to come!

Thank you Fruta Vida! Nicole Pugh

Acai is the only super berry on the market that has everything that you need. It packs vitamin B1, B2, B3, vitamin E, vitamin C, phosphorus, calcium, potassium, fiber, proteins, and good fatty acids such as Omega 6 and Omega 9. Research on acai has shown that these antioxidants are known to fight and regulate cholesterol levels in the body.

As an added benefit acai gives you the highest level of antioxidant on the market, with studies showing up to 33 times the antioxidant as in red wine grapes.
Something must also be said about anthocyanins, since acai contains the most highly concentrated forms of anthocyanins known thus far through intense research.

Anthocyanins are some of the more potent forms of antioxidants. We have all heard of the "French Paradox", how the people of France, with their high fat diets and not uncommon unhealthy lifestyles, are still below the percentage of related deaths from cardiovascular disease than many of the populations that exist today. One reason may be that they consume large amounts of red wine. Wines, made from grapes have very high levels of the antioxidant anthocyanins.

The polyphenols (anthocyanins) in red wine are believed to mitigate the effects of a fatty diet and smoking. Anthocyanin is a polyphenol that is proven to reverse, halt, and improve the conditions of many age related diseases inflicted on the general population. Anthocyanins (flavonoids) found in various fruits have a unique chemical structure that makes them 6 to 8 times more potent than vitamin C.

One particular fruit, the acai berry, contains the most highly concentrated forms of anthocyanins known thus far through intense research. The anthocyanin content in the acai berry is proven to be 3.5 times the amount of that present in a glass of red wine, volume to volume when tested in an ORAL analysis (measure of capacity).
Here is a list of some of the health problems that anthocyanins help address and protect against:

Inflammation and Collagen: Anthocyanins neutralize enzymes that destroy connective tissue. Their antioxidant capacity prevents oxidants from damaging connective tissues and repair damaged proteins in the blood vessel walls.

The Nervous System: By preventing tyrosine nitration, the anthocyanin properties in acai may help protect against neurological diseases. The primary anthocyanins in acai known as Cyanidin-3-glucoside have been found to help in the reversal of age related neurological deficits.

Large and Small Blood Vessels: Anthocyanins ability to counter oxidants makes it a powerhouse in the fight against arteriosclerosis. Even in trace amounts, anthocyanins effectively protect against LDL oxidation. Anthocyanins protect the integrity of the endothelial cells that line blood vessel walls and help to maintain micro capillary integrity.

Diabetes: One of the serious diabetic complications is retinopathy, which in most cases can cause blindness. This condition occurs when the body attempts to repair leaking, damaged capillaries, but does so by over producing abnormal proteins. The protection of anthocyanins may help prevent these capillaries from leaking and to help prevent abnormal protein proliferation.

Eyesight: Anthocyanins may also help improve eyesight. In the Second World War, British fighter pilots were found to have improved night vision. These findings were thought to be contributed to by the large amounts of bilberry in the pilot’s diet. The effects of the improved night vision were not long lasting after the initial consumption of bilberry - lasting just hours after initial consumption. With this newfound advantage, the pilots would consume the bilberry fruits just prior to the mission.

Finally, besides being considered one of the “richest foods in iron”, the acai is also rich in fiber, which makes it strongly recommended for the elderly and/or for people with digestive problems.

For its microbiological characteristics, acai is considered one of the most nutritive foods in the Amazon, and perhaps in the world.

It is my privilege to offer you this report on the acai berry. Please read it thoroughly. After you have, feel free to contact me with any questions you might have.

What Is the Acai Berry?

Acai (pronounced ah-sigh-EE) is a palm tree that grows throughout the Amazon basin. The fruit of acai is small and dark purple or black in color, and is about the size of a grape. The berry is harvested naturally from the depths of the rain forests of Brazil by the people who have been using it for thousands of years.

The acai berry was recently listed on the Oprah Winfrey show as #1 of the top 10 superfoods for anti-aging. Her show featured Dr. Nicholas Perricone, author of the #1 New York Times best-seller, The Perricone Promise. He said the following:

It may seem odd to start this list of superfoods with one you've likely never even heard of. But studies have shown that this little berry is one of the most nutritious and powerful foods in the world.

Acai (ah-sigh-ee) is the high-energy berry of a special Amazon palm tree. Harvested in the rain forests of Brazil, acai tastes like a vibrant blend of berries and chocolate.

Hidden within its royal purple pigment is the magic that makes it nature's perfect energy fruit. Acai is packed full of antioxidants, amino acids, and essential fatty acids. Although acai may not be available in your local supermarket, you can find it, often in juice form.

In fact, studies show that açaí provides significantly more antioxidants than such well-respected foods as blueberries, oranges and even red wine. Perhaps more impressive is that the antioxidant concentration in the açaí fruit is five times higher than that of gingko biloba, the popular “brain boosting” herbal supplement that is renowned for its antioxidant properties.

This leads me to say more about what this little berry “packs."
