The Açai tree, known as “huasai” or “chonta” in Peru, grows up to sixty feet in height in the floodplains of the Amazon rainforest. The tree’s dark purple berries are a half inch in diameter with a tiny seed at the core. Açai berries have been shown to reduce oxidative damage in flies as well as in vitro cultures from cows and humans, suggesting the fruit could promote healthy aging and be taken as a defense against oxidative stress.
