Functional Foods

Foods claiming to have a health-promoting or disease-preventing property beyond the basic function of delivering nutrients are known as functional foods. They come in many forms: wide-spectrum meal replacements, on-the-go snacks such as protein bars and RTDs, or even foods that are 'calcium-enriched' or enhanced with probiotics. Some serve more specific health-related goals, such as increasing fiber, delivering healthy fats and amping up your antioxidant intake. If you're searching for an unusual product that doesn't seem to fit in any other category, you're likely to find it here.

    PROSOURCE ACAI BERRY Some call it a super food. Others refer to it as one of the most powerful antioxidant ingredients on the market today. In fact, studies show that acai is richer in antioxidants than cranberries, raspberries, strawberries and even blueberries. This amazing Amazonian fruit has become a sensation in the supplement industry and scientific circles, and ProSource is right on point by offering this premium quality Acai Berry product (pronounced ah-sigh-ee). This super antioxidant botanical has been the subject of numerous studies that validate its incredible ability to help support tissue protection as well as an ability to enhance the production of NO. With 10 times the antioxidant power of red grapes and up to 30 times the antioxidants found in red wine, it's no wonder acai has recently set the web and news agencies abuzz. Of course, the problem with popular supplements is the lower grade imposters with cheaper (and less effective) offerings. Conversely, ProSource guarantees its organic Acai Berry caps to be 100% pure and freeze dried to retain optimum freshness while ensuring the highest potency.   click to read:Acai Berries: The Top Super Fruit of All Time?   Use as directed with a sensible nutrition and exercise program.
