Sambazon Moves Into Supplement Market With Acai PowerCaps(TM) Launch Nationwide

NEW YORK, Sept. 28 /PRNewswire/ - People have always been enthralled with any product or process reported to slow the signs of aging and promote healthy, radiant skin. While expensive cosmetic surgery has long been the answer to beauty problems, today's trend seems to be the "quick fix" with overly publicized creams and treatments. However, in order to truly attain beautiful skin, one must start from the inside out. Consumers only have to look to the Amazon Rainforest for the solution, home to an antioxidant-rich purple palm berry called acai (pronounced ah-sigh-ee). Sambazon, the global leader in highest quality acai products, launches their latest innovations, Sambazon Acai PowerCaps(TM) and Sambazon PowerScoop(TM), designed to promote supple, youthful skin.

Dubbed nature's Superfood, acai grows atop palm trees lining the Amazon River, known by the indigenous people as the "tree of life." In 2000,Sambazon was the first company to begin importing acai to North America in the form of a frozen puree to make smoothies and beverages. Today, Sambazon has made tremendous strides in bringing the fruit mainstream with the introduction of a dietary supplement, Sambazon Acai PowerCaps(TM). This supplement is a premium source of organic acai in a whole food powder (as opposed to an extract), so consumers don't lose any of the powerful synergistic health benefits found in the acai fruit. Each vegetable capsule boasts 500mg of organic acai and all of its inherent health-benefiting qualities, such as powerful antioxidants, a synergy of healthy omega fats, dietary fiber, phytosterols, and a nearly perfect amino acid complex.

Acai has a widespread following among medical professionals, including famed dermatologist Dr. Nicholas Perricone, who recently hailed acai as "one of the ten superfoods of our time" on Oprah and in his best-selling book The Perricone Promise. He states that the antioxidants found in the purple pigment of acai are believed to help prevent and repair oxidative stress, a process that damages cells within the body. Dr. Perricone also states that Sambazon Acai is the most pure and authentic acai available. And in the recently released The Perricone Weight-Loss Diet, Dr. Perricone reveals that acai is good for weight loss due to its high level of cyanidins (powerful antioxidants).

"Studies show the average American only gets about 1200 ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity)(1) units per day, when they should be getting more like 3500. Sambazon Acai PowerCaps(TM) deliver about 600 ORAC units per gram, giving consumers a convenient way to increase their daily ORAC intake,"stated Ryan Black, Sambazon Founder and CEO.

Sambazon Acai PowerCaps(TM) are available at select Whole Foods, Vitamin Shoppe, GNC and finer health food stores nationwide as well as at Also available is the recently launched Sambazon PowerScoop(TM).
