Euterpe Oleracea Fruit Extract description

_Euterpe oleracea_ fruit extract comes from the acai berry, which is a potent source of antioxidants, including ferulic acid and epicatechin. According to in vitro research, acai has higher antioxidant content than cranberry, raspberry, blackberry, strawberry, or blueberry, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it is the best antioxidant - just one of many to choose from when it comes to your skin care products. Consumed orally via supplement, juice, or as a whole food, acai has been shown to exert potent antioxidant benefits and reduce the cascade of damage caused by the overproduction of free radicals.
