What is Purpura Bacca?

what is purpura bacca?We see a new phenomenon among people who are wiling to get rid of their fat. Those weigh loss enthusiasts seem that they have found a totally new solution for their problem. the name of the solution is Purpura Bacca.

Since we have limited information about this hot “weight loss” topic, we need to enlighten our readers about Purpura Bacca starting with what it is. Purpura Bacca is not a brand, it is an ingredient in a weight loss supplement. And you all know it very well actually.

Purpura bacca is “Acai Berry”. Is it familiar now? yes it is that fruit found almost in most of the weight loss/diet pills’ formulas as ingredients. Here is a quote from wikipedia for purpura bacca or acai berry:

In a study of three traditional Caboclo populations in the Brazilian Amazon, açaí palm was described as the most important plant species because the fruit makes up a major component of their diet, up to 42% of the total food intake by weight.[1]

In the northern state of Pará, Brazil, açaí pulp is traditionally served in gourds called “cuias” with tapioca and, depending on the local preference, can be consumed either salty or sweet (sugar, rapadura, and honey are known to be used in the mix). Açaí has become popular in southern Brazil where it is consumed cold as açaí na tigela (“açaí in the bowl”), mostly mixed with granola. Açaí is also consumed in Brazil as an ice cream flavor or juice. The juice has also been used in a flavored liqueur.

Today, a half-dozen brands market açaí in the beverage space.[2] Although most açaí is grown conventionally, the US company Sambazon established USDA Organic certification for their açai palm plantations in 2003 and has also implemented fair trade certification.[3]

In 2005, an article published by Greenpeace International stated that “the tasty dark violet wine of açaí is the most important non-wood forest product in terms of money from the river delta of the Amazon.”[4] In 2008, the Los Angeles Times reported that açaí is a renewable resource that can provide a sustainable livelihood for subsistence harvesters without damaging the Amazon Rainforest. The Times noted that wild harvesting of açaí may contribute to forest preservation and support of harvesting families, thereby making the forest more economical intact rather than cut down. While conventionally grown monoculture açaí farming is a threat to the rainforest, açaí has been used to successfully reforest already degraded regions.[5] In May 2009, Bloomberg reported that the expanding popularity of açaí in the United States was “depriving Brazilian jungle dwellers of a protein-rich nutrient they’ve relied on for generations.”[6]

In the regions of açaí production, such as Pará, açaí palms have replaced sugar cane and other cultivation choices more damaging to the natural environment, such as cattle farming.[citation needed] Such practices indicate that systematic cultivation and reliable commercial supplies may be more prevalent.



Nutritional content

A powdered preparation of freeze-dried açaí fruit pulp and skin was reported to contain (per 100 g of dry powder) 533.9 calories, 52.2 g carbohydrates, 8.1 g protein, and 32.5 g total fat. The carbohydrate portion included 44.2 g of dietary fiber and low sugar value (pulp is not sweet).[13] The powder was also shown to contain (per 100 g): negligible vitamin C, 260 mg calcium, 4.4 mg iron, and 1002 U vitamin A, as well as aspartic acid and glutamic acid; the amino acid content was 7.59% of total dry weight (versus 8.1% protein).

The fat content of açaí consists of oleic acid (56.2% of total fats), palmitic acid (24.1%), and linoleic acid (12.5%).[13] Açaí also contains beta-sitosterol (78–91% of total sterols).[13][14] The oil compartments in açaí fruit contain polyphenols such as procyanidin oligomers and vanillic acid, syringic acid, p-hydroxybenzoic acid, protocatechuic acid, and ferulic acid, which were shown to degrade substantially during storage or exposure to heat.[15]

    Não existem milagres para perda de peso, e qdo eles passam a existir, desconfie. Converse sempre com seu médico de confiança pois é ele quem sabe sobre os riscos ou não de se tomar algo para emagrecer. Existem muitas propagandas enganosas, falsos depoimentos, fique atento pois quem vai sair perdendo não é a industria de medicamentos mas sim a sua saúde!

    Tengo interés en conocer las contraindicaciones de la purpura bacca, pues estoy en tratamiento de alguna anomalía ( tensión alta y cardiopatía), y no quisiera que la ingesta de este producto estuviera contraindicado con las medicación que estoy tomando.
    Tampoco quiero perder 14 kgs. en un mes. El médico me aconseja una pérdida de cinco a siete kgs. (Peso 85 kg y mido 1,73 m).
    Un saludo

    É preciso ter atenção ao seguinte: O nome de determinada planta da flora brasileira pode ser diferente noutro país qualquer. Melhor dizendo: A planta que se designa por purpura bacca na Colômbia, pode chamar-se no brasil “açaí” mas não ser a mesma planta. Isto acontece, por exemplo com Sete Sangrias que no Brasil não é Sete Sangrias da Europa. O nome é o mesmo mas as plantas são diferentes e os efeitos também. Outro caso é o da cidreira de alguns países que nada tem a ver com a cidreira europeia. Outra planta é a Alfavaca
    do Brasil que nada tem a ver com a alfavaca europeia.
    Passem bem

    Hello everybody. This fruit we call in Brazil acai. It serves not to lose weight, quite the contrary, it serves to gain muscle mass. We do a lot of this fruit juice and usually take before going to the gym. If you consume this vitamin daily without practicing physical exercise, you’ll probably get fat enough as it is very caloric. In northern Brazil it is consumed as a kind of “beans”, because its high index energetic region that helps people who do not have many conditions to buy food. It is a mistake to say that the fruit loses weight. Really when done as vitamin is very tasty, and is aki fever in Brazil, but not serve ever to lose weight, serves to fatten.

There are so many pages on the internet presently, associated with such a large amount of answers, it is really complex to ascertain what is actually authentic, and after that what guys and women just simply conjure. The same applies to diet habits or some kind of method of weight reduction. I’ve truly taken a look at lots because of the hcg diets, and so am uncertain what to ascertain as a result of just about every thing. It seems that hcg needles could be just the technique to use, they also seem to be high price, and you will have to obtain a health care doctor. Me inquiring about painless hcg drops, as long as they start to actually work. You will discover bona fide simple hcg drops, and additionally herbal treatments painless hcg drops you can buy all-around. The customer may even request user friendly hcg drops found on Walmart at this point. The diet plan in which features hcg, appears like it can be a starvation diet cause they acknowledge you consume a little less than FIVE HUNDRED calories on a daily basis. We’d think that consumers would have to drop the weight during any diet plans this way. Additionally , they admit hcg allows you to be capable to stick to the food diet, and moreover forces our body to help you melt more excess fat.

    “Marketers of these products make unfounded claims that açaí and its antioxidant qualities provide a variety of health benefits, none of which has scientific confirmation to date. False claims include reversal of diabetes and other chronic illnesses, as well as expanding size of the penis and increasing men’s sexual virility.[17][better source needed] As of April 2012, there are no scientifically controlled studies providing proof of any health benefits from consuming açaí. No açaí products have been evaluated (in the United States) by the FDA, and their efficacy is doubtful.[18] Specifically, there is no scientific evidence that açaí consumption affects body weight, promotes weight loss or has any positive health effect.[19]”

      Che vuol dire la FDA americana non ha analkzzato l’ ACAI e di conseguenza sono tuttte bufale ? Il grande potere antiosssidante delle bacche ACAI e’ noto da tempo, forse i competitori non ne trarranno piaceree, mentre sul potere dietetico sono ignorante ma lo mettero’ alla prova per un mese, non abbuffandomi ovvio, e vediamo che succede.
