@@img1ALLENTOWN, PA. – Liberty Imports USA, Inc., has announced the nationwide launch of Brazil Gourmet Acai Nectar, a premium all-natural drink made from the acai berry and featuring more antioxidants than any other similar ready-to-drink beverage.
“The acai berry is a real miracle of the Amazon,” company executive Simone Anewalt said. “It contains more antioxidants than any other fruit on the planet — 57 percent more than pomegranates.” Additionally, independent testing by Brunswick Laboratories shows that Brazil Gourmet Acai Nectar has over 21 percent more antioxidants per eight-ounce serving than the next highest ready-to-drink acai beverage tested, the company reported.
Antioxidants “protect cells from damage caused by unstable molecules known as free radicals,” according to the National Institutes of Health. Research has shown that antioxidants may be useful in fighting a host of diseases, from cancer to heart disease.
In addition to antioxidants derived from the acai berry, Brazil Gourmet Acai Nectar also contains acerola, giving the beverage “a unique, light wild cherry flavor and providing the consumer with 150 percent of the U.S. Recommended Daily take of Vitamin C in every bottle. Not only is Brazil Gourmet’s Acai really good for you, it tastes great too,” Anewalt says. “When taste-tested against the leading competitors, Brazil Gourmet’s Acai was by far the number one choice.”
Brazil Gourmet Acai Nectar is sold in a 300 ml (10.14 oz.) glass bottle “that’s ideal for placement in the refrigerated section of the produce department,” continued Anewalt. Suggested retail price for this super-premium product ranges from $2.99 to $3.49 a bottle.
Omega 6 & 9 Antioxidants offer a host of potential benefits. “Brazil Gourmet is very high in Antioxidants and they are known to help combat premature aging, aid circulation, strengthen the vascular system to protect against heart attack and stroke, and detoxify the blood,” the company reports.
In addition to antioxidants and Vitamin C, Brazil Gourmet’s Acai contains dietary fiber that aids digestion, lipids that increase energy, and anthocyanins that are known to improve night vision and retard macular degeneration. “Plus, this amazing drink possesses a healthy dose of Omegas 6 and 9, shown to help reduce harmful LDL cholesterol. No other drink on the market offers as many potential health benefits as Brazil Gourmet Acai,” stated Anewalt.
In addition to Brazil Gourmet Acai, the company produces Brazil Gourmet Nectars in four tropical flavors and Brazil Gourmet Nectar Teas, launched last September, also in four delicious tropical flavors.
Brazil Gourmet beverages are distributed by UNFI and Nature’s Best, which distribute products to natural food outlets such as Whole Foods Markets. Brazil Gourmet beverages are also being sold and distributed by wholesalers such as C&S and Bozzuto’s. The company’s products are currently on the shelves of chains such as A&P, Gristede’s, Giant, Key Foods, King Kullen and Market Basket, just to mention a few.
