Acai. A smooth operator with serious beauty benefits.

Acai, we love it. For starters, there's a reason why this superfood has been coined the ‘Beauty Berry’. Containing more grams of regenerating protein than an egg, and packed full of anti-ageing and metabolism-boosting phyto-nutrients, this lovely berry improves your health and promotes real beauty from the inside out. 

Why Acai?
This little wonder:
  • Combats premature ageing with the help of powerful antioxidants (namely anthocyanin)
  • Boosts immunity and metabolic function
  • Aids in muscle regeneration, promoting increased energy and stamina
  • Improves blood circulation, assisting in a healthier heart
  • Assists in removing toxins from your body
Beautifying Berry Smoothie

  • Raw cacao powder – 1 tsp
  • Mixed berries – a large handful (fresh or frozen)
