Gaia Herbs has expanded their extensive line of herbal supplements to include an Acai Berry Liquid Phyto-cap™, made from organic Acai berry. Heralded as a potent antioxidant, Acai product sales have grown tremendously in popularity, with American consumers spending more than $108 million on Acai products in the 52 weeks ending Feb. 21 (SPINS research).
“Our new Acai Berry Liquid Phyto-caps are a perfect addition to the Gaia family of products, and judging from the response in orders we’ve seen thus far, our customers agree wholeheartedly. We’ve been inundated with requests, and have every reason to expect our volume to keep growing as consumers learn about this new organic Acai product.” said Angela Guerrant, Vice President of Sales for Gaia Herbs.
Gaia Herbs developed a patented technology for all of their Liquid Phyto-caps that enables them to deliver potent herbal solutions in a more readily absorbable liquid format. This proprietary process uses the whole Acai berry, freeze-dried to ensure freshness, and reconstitutes it to a concentrate which is filled in vegetarian capsules. This allows higher concentrations of the Acai Berry pulp (shown by research to have a broader nutritional profile and higher antioxidant capacity than Acai juice alone) to be present in the capsules.
Consistent with their mission to offer certified organic products to better assure quality, safety and efficacy, Gaia Herbs sources their organic Acai berry fruit from sustainably harvested wild Acai palms grown on certified organic land in Brazil. The land is certified organic by QAI (Quality Assurance International). Acai has become one of the main export products of the Amazon estuary, which has helped create a more sustainable agricultural model for the region.
“We’ve sourced the highest quality, certified organic Acai for our liquid filled capsules, so consumers can make their purchase knowing that not only are they buying an efficacious, organic supplement at a value price, but they are in essence “voting with their dollars” and supporting sustainable and organic agriculture as well. Gaia customers have come to expect products that support people, planet and plants, and our organic Acai Berry Liquid Phyto-caps™ meet that standard.” commented Ric Scalzo, Gaia Herbs founder and President.
