Known to natives as food of the gods, Cupuaçu (pronounced ku-pu-ah-SU) may not be as well known in the U.S. as Açaí, but we believe its moment in the spotlight is coming up fast for this highly sustainable, antioxidant and moisture powerhouse for your skin and hair.
Açaí (pronounced ah-sigh-ee) is one of those intriguing ingredients that everyone seems to love these days. You hear about celebrities and health experts using it, and you might even see it added to food and drinks at your local grocery store.
Buriti - Pronounced boo-ree-CHEE—is a rich, smooth oil that I've loved for years. It is sustainably harvested from a palm tree that grows all over the tropical forests of my homeland of Brazil – generally in wetter areas near rivers and streams. We Brazilians know the Buriti palm as the "Tree of Life," and with good reason.
This excellent Açaí summer breakfast recipe has amazing antioxidant power, healthy omegas and anti-inflammatory properties, helps with weight loss and athletic performance. Enjoy!
