Natrol Adds New AcaiBerry 1,200mg To Its Popular Acai Supplement Line

For health-conscious consumers seeking an easy solution to help get a sufficient daily dose of antioxidants, Natrol, Inc. -- a premier marketer, manufacturer, and distributor of nationally branded nutritional products -- introduces Natrol(R) AcaiBerry dietary supplement, providing a daily serving of 1,200 milligrams of acai (pronounced "ah-sigh-ee"), a powerful natural antioxidant.+

Acai, a small "Super Fruit" from the South American rainforest, has double the antioxidant strength of blueberries, and renowned physician Dr. Mehmet Oz announced on The Oprah Winfrey Show that acai is a new entry to his "hall-of-fame checklist of ultimate anti-aging foods." Natrol(R) AcaiBerry joins the popular Natrol(R) Acai 1,000mg which the company introduced in 2007.

Antioxidants are naturally occurring chemicals found typically in fruits and vegetables, legumes and nuts, grain cereals, cocoa products and chocolate, red wine, coffee and teas, and some herbs, spices, and oils. Antioxidants are valued for their role in helping to reduce oxidative damage to cells and biomolecules, as well as helping to defend the body against free radicals that can accelerate aging, affect cellular integrity, and diminish optimal health. The acai berry has twice the oxygen-radical absorbance capacity (ORAC) of blueberries.+

The growing popularity of acai, coupled with studies examining this Amazonian berry's antioxidant ability to help neutralize harmful free radicals, has led to a variety of acai product choices to increase antioxidant protection. Furthermore, due to fast-paced lifestyles, many people may find it challenging to consume the recommended five daily servings of antioxidant-rich foods, and Natrol(R) AcaiBerry -- formulated as easy-to-ingest capsules -- provides a convenient solution to help obtain an optimal daily intake.

"Natrol(R) AcaiBerry 1,200mg and Natrol(R) Acai 1,000mg offer an easy and convenient way to ingest antioxidants," says Dr. Michael T. Yatcilla, Natrol's Vice President of Research and Development. He continues, "Consistency is key in maintaining optimal health, and busy consumers will find that adding a Natrol(R) acai product to their daily supplement program is a simple, on-the-go solution for boosting antioxidant protection which can support overall health." +

The recommended daily serving of Natrol(R) AcaiBerry is two capsules taken with a meal. Each capsule offers a potent 4:1 extract of acai, containing a higher concentration of this berry and its nutritive values, and providing more total antioxidant benefits.+

The acai in Natrol products is cultivated with great care to safeguard the environmental surroundings of the acai palm trees, as well as to protect the acai berry's active constituents. In addition to being rainforest-safe, Natrol's acai comes from a pure whole-fruit source and is gently extracted with water to protect its potency.

Natrol acai products are formulated as vegetarian capsules that are free of yeast, wheat, milk, glutens, and have no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives (average U.S. SRP = $16.99 for a 60-capsule package, a one-month supply if taken as directed).
