The benefits of Acai superfood.
Açaí berries are often hailed as a superfood, a term that refers to foods with high nutrient or phytochemical content that may confer health benefits, with few negative properties. For açaí, the key lies in its rich antioxidant content, fiber, healthy fats, and low sugar levels, making it an ideal component of an athlete's diet.
For endurance athletes, açaí offers a plethora of benefits that make it an excellent addition to their diet. Its unique nutritional profile supports recovery, energy levels, and cardiovascular health, all of which are crucial for optimal performance in endurance sports.
Acai fruit and athletic performance.
Studies conducted on cyclists showed that frequent Acai consumption increased performance by limiting oxidative stress and inflammation and increased energy output. Acai supplementation was also shown to improve effort tolerance. Anthocyanins present in acai fruit can attenuate exercise-induced metabolic stress.
Researchers also noted that Acai increased nitric oxide production in the vasculature, an important signaling molecule that relaxes microvessels. This improves muscle blood flow, enables better oxygen transport to the muscle, improves oxygenation, and consequently improves work output. Nitric oxide has been shown to improve physical performance by up to 3-5%, a rarely seen phenomenon induced by diet.
