Acai is very rich in anthocyanin, an antioxidant that helps to fight cholesterol and free radicals. Have you ever heard that a glass of red wine everyday is good for the heart? This is because of the anthocyanin in the grape. It is not by accident that the color of the acai is similar to the color of wine, although acai has thirty-three times more anthocyanin than grapes.
Acai Benefits:
  • Infuses Energy
  • Improves Digestion
  • Develops Mental Focus
  • Induces Better Sleep
  • Help Regulate Normal Cholesterol Levels
  • Elevates sexual function
  • Helps Digestion
  • Improves Blood Circulation
  • Boosts Your Immune System
  • Cleans and Detoxifies Your Body
  • Assists with Muscle Contraction and Regeneration
  • and, Provides Very Low Sugar Content

Love your Cinnamon? Here are the Facts!


Apart from giving you that warm feeling on the inside and reminding you of Fall, slowly creeping into Winter. Cinnamon has a few surprising health benefits!

  1. Cinnamon regulates blood sugar, making it a great choice for diabetics and hypoglycemics alike.  That’s also great news for anyone who wants stable energy levels and moods
  2. It reduces LDL cholesterol levels.  LDL is also known as the harmful cholesterol.  Reducing it may help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.
  3. It has natural anti-infective compounds.  In studies, cinnamon has been effective against ulcer-causing H. pylori bacteria and other pathogens.
  4. It reduces pain linked to arthritis.  Cinnamon has been shown in studies at the Department of Internal Medicine, Kangnam Korean Hospital, to reduce cytokines linked to arthritic pain.
  5. Research at the University of Texas, published in the journal Nutrition and Cancer, shows that cinnamon may reduce the proliferation of cancer cells, holding promise for cancer prevention and sufferers of the disease.
  6. It is a natural food preservative.
  7. It contains fiber, calcium, iron, and manganese—albeit small amounts to the typical dose of ground cinnamon.
  8. It’s been proven effective for menstrual pain and infertility. Cinnamon contains a natural chemical called cinnamaldehyde, which studies show increases the hormone progesterone and decreases testosterone production in women, helping to balance hormones.
  9. Cinnamon holds promise for various neurodegenerative diseases, including: Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, brain tumor, and meningitis, according to research at the Cytokine Research Laboratory, Department of Experimental Therapeutics, The University of Texas.  Their research shows that cinnamon reduces chronic inflammation linked with these neurological disorders.
  10. Not a health benefit, but a great reason to love cinnamon, it’s versatile.  It works with sweet and savory dishes alike.  Consider that many curries and savory Moroccan dishes include cinnamon.  
It’s not just for apples anymore.

Perfect Balance of Energy and Antioxidants!

Matcha Green Tea
Matcha green tea leaves are whisked with water and consumed in their entirety, unlike regular green teas where the most nutritious tea leaves are taken out of the water upon brewing. Thus, by virtue of literally "eating" the whole tea leaves, Matcha green tea delivers the highest concentration of green tea fibers, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals compared to all other mainstream beverages. To add to this, Matcha green tea also contains high amounts of Theanines, a unique set of amino acids found almost exclusively in green tea. In conjunction with the tea caffeine theophylline, the two naturally occurring ingredients are thought to work together to help provide mental clarity and energy.
Match Benefits:

  • Infuses energy, natural caffeine
  • Slows the aging process
  • Fights cancer-causing free radicals
  • Helps prevent heart disease
  • Boosts your immune system

Try it at Fresh Cafe!
We offer our Matcha Green Tea Smoothies as well as the tea itself. So whether you feel like having something hot or cold, we've got you covered!
