We’re sorry for any inconvenience, but Acai has been discontinued

I am constantly striving to find the best formulations and high-quality products for your use. Although Acai is a potent water-soluble antioxidant that can help support your health,* I actually prefer Purple Defense over acai. In fact, I personally use Purple Defense.

My Purple Defense not only has a high ORAC value (it efficiently and effectively helps fight free radicals), it also contains resveratrol.* Acai does not contain this beneficial nutrient which helps support your cardiovascular health.*

When looking for water-soluble antioxidants, I believe Purple Defense is the best you can find.
