There is a buzz in the air over a little purple berry that is sweeping the world of health foods. This amazing little Brazilian fruit possesses an impressive nutrient make up and thousands of health conscious individuals are adding it to their regular diet in order to boost their vitality and wellbeing. Acai berries grow uniquely on an Acai Palm which flourishes over 6.1 million acres of Amazon rainforest in Brazil.
