New Research Shows Acai Berries Promote Heart Health

Acai berry supplements are the most popular superberry supplement and is even a favourite amongst celebrities. It has been noted for its effective weight loss effects and its powerful anti-oxidant capacity. Acai berries have also been noted for their particularly beneficial effects in improving heart health.


A newly published study has confirmed the cardio-regenerative effects of Acai berry extract. A significant amount of published literature on the cardio-protective effects of Acai berry extracts already exists. Several studies have well documented the effects that Acai berries have on helping people lose weight which has the consequent effect of reducing the risk of heart disease. It has also been found that Acai berries reduce serum LDL (‘bad’) cholesterol levels in the blood. By lowering LDL cholesterol levels in the blood, the risk of cholesterol deposits building up to cause major cardiovascular diseases is greatly reduced.


“Previous scientific studies have established that Acai berry extracts helped to reduce serum cholesterol levels in subjects with a hypercholesterolemic diet. This established that Acai berry extracts reduce the chances of heart attacks by lowering blood cholesterol levels and now this research has shown it to aid recovery following heart attacks too,” says Vitamin Planets Senior Nutritionist, David Abersythe.


The new study conducted in rats as a model organism showed that Acai berry supplements restored cardiovascular function to a much higher level following a heart attack. The test subjects were able to exercise to a much greater extent if Acai supplements were given which shows that it helped to improve cardiovascular function.
