Study shows that acai berry has the potential to prevent intestinal inflammatory diseases

A recentstudy performed by Kim and colleagues at the Seoul National University of Science and Technology in Korea assessed the anti-inflammatory effects of acai berries in a cell line model.


The antioxidant activity of the acai berry extract was measured by radical scavenging activity and ferric reducing antioxidant power values. Inflammation was induced in the cells using lipopolysaccharides. Inflammation responses wete measured using a variety of merkers and methods. The results suggest that acai berry may improve gastrointestinal health by suppressing inflammation and oxidative stress. Acai berry is known to have abundant anthocyanin, which has many biological activities, including anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antihypertensive, and anticytotoxic/cytoprotective activities. The study demonstrated the anti-inflammatory effects of acai berry extracts. Therefore, the scientists concluded that acai berry has the potential to prevent intestinal inflammatory diseases.
