I have just finished a 50 gram packet of Acai Super Food by Bioglan which is one of the Pharmacare brands who also do Natures Way and a few other you may see in Pharmacy and Chemists.
This berry powder contains a mixture of organic acai freeze dried powder, blueberry powder, goji powder, pomegranate powder and a few other ingredients so it is full of antioxidants and as you can probably tell, it has a very strong berry flavour.
I have been taking different berry powder formulas over the last couple of years and I’m sure if you do a bit of research into antioxidants and their effects on your body I’m sure you will too.
The serving size for Acai is a 5gm serve, so a teaspoon full, I have been mixing a teaspoon in either with my after gym protein shake or sprinkling a teaspoon over my breakfast in the morning.
Obviously only sprinkling it over cereal type breakfasts, not the toast and eggs type breakfast, just letting you know just in case you take me literally.
When mixed in you get this rich looking colour through your shake or breakfast and the berry taste is very strong too so a perfect combination to mix with a vanilla protein shake or to mix in with an organic yogurt to put a tablespoon on top of your muesli.
All the berries in the formula deliver high levels of nutrient, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants which help with your daily energy, your body’s recovery, general health, weigh management due to it being Low GI and lastly help boosting your immune system.
Although not a full organic formula at least the acai powder in it is an organic acai powder.

Acai Super Food by Bioglan is a perfect addition to your diet to boost your antioxidant intake easily because of the concentration of the powder.
I usually buy a packet and then use until finished and have a break for a while and go back to it but it is something you can use pretty much every day as directed on the packet and not have any concerns at all except for how good you will feel.
This berry powder mixes easily, only went a little clumpy towards the end but that is understandable with opening and shutting the packet many times while using it.
You can buy Acai Super Food by Bioglan from your local Pharmacy or Chemist, you may have to ring ahead to see if they have it as I know this supplement isn’t in all of them, if this is the case you can buy Acai online easily from many online stores and also from the manufacturers website too.
There are many different prices around from what I have seen so if you want to save some money it would pay to look around at your options when you buy.
So Acai by Bioglan was a great little addition to my daily diet, didn’t break the bank and I’d certainly buy this berry powder mix again and recommend it to anyone who wants a high antioxidant powder, it says on the label of Acai “Natures Perfect Antioxidant Energy Food” and that it certainly is.
