The açai berry is known for its antioxidant effect and can even slow down the degradation of cells. Novatra does not promise miracles, but the berry tastes incomparably good. The small fruit, ranging in size from 1 to 2.5 centimeters, grows in the Amazon on a slender palm tree that can grow up to 30 meters tall.
Research has shown that the açai berry is not only antioxidant. Its properties are also anti-inflammatory, anti-proliferative, cytoprotective and immunostimulatory. The relevant antioxidants include mainly anthocyanins such as cyanidin-3-O-glucoside and cyanidin-3-O-rutinoside.
The indigenous tribes of the Amazon have known it for thousands of years: The secrets of this plant, which they call the "pharmacy of the jungle." Rich in vitamins and minerals, cupuaçu supports digestion, helps lower blood pressure and strengthens the immune system. Among other things, valuable ingredients such as vitamins A, C and E as well as iron, calcium and fiber ensure this.
The exotic cupaçu grows in tropical lowland rainforests and is also known as large-flowered cacao. Its cacao-like fruit, which can grow as large as a melon, hides behind beautiful flowers.
There is no sweeter substance in any of our other snacks. The passion fruit is not only a front-runner in terms of sweetness, but its vitamin C content is also almost unbeatable: per 100 milliliters, it contains up to 50 milligrams of vitamin C, plus a lot of niacin and riboflavin.
The passion fruit thrives in Paraguay and northern Argentina as a fast-growing climbing plant and can grow as large as a chicken egg.
