When we talk about chiropractic and the particular lifestyle a chiropractor in Lansing, Michigan would recommend, proper nutrition is often mentioned. Fresh fruits and vegetables are keys to any successful diet. The Acai berry, grown in the Brazilian rainforest, is the “in” ingredient and exotic flavor that’s sweeping the country. The question is why? When poured, its deep purple in color and it’s that rich color that holds all the antioxidant properties. Antioxidants are substances or nutrients which can prevent or slow the oxidative damage to our body. When our body cells use oxygen, they naturally produce free radicals (by-products) which can cause damage. Antioxidants act as “free radical scavengers” and thus prevent and repair damage done by these free radicals. The acai berry is super high in antioxidants and all the other stuff that promotes health. They even says its anti-mutagenic which means, everybody is getting DNA damage everyday because of radiation and oxidative stress and there’s a lot of evidence that the berries like this can really help prevent that damage which can eventually prevent many problems such as neck pain and back pain. These types of symptoms could be caused by biochemical stress such as bad nutrition or physical stress.
