National Nutrition Week: What are Acai berries, how to make acai bowls and can acai berries fight Covid-19 – health

jhon yudha

Acai (pronounced ah-sigh-ee) berries are one of the healthiest berry varieties in the world along with blueberries, strawberries, raspberries and others. They are about 1-inch (2.5-cm) round that grow on acai palms in the Amazon rainforests. Their dark purple skin and yellow flesh cover a large seed, while the pits are similar to those of apricots and olives.

Technically acai berries are drupes but are still considered a part of the berry family. They are high in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals that are necessary for the body and are also known to aid weight loss, reduce bad cholesterol, and promote a healthy heart.

Acai berries are usually soaked to soften their outer skin and mashed to form a dark purple paste. The shelf-life of fresh Acai berries is a small window, hence these are largely exported in puréed or powder form to add to meals, smoothies and more.

Coffee Fruit (Coffee Berry): Nutrition and Health Benefits

jhon yudha

While most people are familiar with coffee beans, coffee fruit is not as common.

Derived from the same plant as the coffee bean, coffee fruit is traditionally discarded during the coffee-making process.

However, it has recently reemerged in the world of health and wellness, and it’s touted as a trendy new superfood that’s featured in supplements, juices, and herbal teas alike.

This article reviews the nutrition and health benefits of coffee fruit, along with common ways to add it to your diet.

Coffee fruit is a type of stone fruit that’s produced by the coffee plant.

It’s often referred to by other names, including coffee cherry or coffee berry.

Lewis Road Creamery is now making milk with added bovine collagen.

Premium dairy brand Lewis Road Creamery has come under fire from the consumer watchdog for claims it made about the potential health benefits of its latest product.

Last week, Lewis Road Creamery released a 150ml milk product, which costs $5 and contains 5g of added bovine collagen.

On its website, the company stated the collagen it used had been “scientifically shown to regenerate joint cartilage [and] stimulate the body’s own mechanisms for maintaining healthy joints and optimum mobility”. However, it removed the comment after receiving a complaint from Consumer New Zealand.

The jury is out on whether collagen supplements, like the one used in the milk, can improve joint health.

“Hillsborough County’s collective prosperity depends upon the equitable access to opportunity for every resident regardless of the color of their skin,” the resolution reads.

It includes a 10-item action list ranging from promoting equity through all commission-approved policies to encouraging county vendors, contractors and others to provide racial equity training.

The resolution from Commissioner Pat Kemp is modeled after government action in Dallas County, Texas and similar resolutions in Mecklenberg County, N.C., Montgomery County, Md. and Dekalb, Cobb and Gwinnett counties in Georgia.

The idea grew locally from Our Community, Our Voice, a virtual community forum on racism and public health that Bible-Based Fellowship Church in

It’s a neighbourhood that has notoriously struggled with higher  rates of gun violence, higher  tenant eviction rates and more recently, higher  numbers of COVID-19 cases than the rest of the city.

But despite a challenging backdrop compounded by the physical and social  perils of a global  pandemic, youth like Kishundial and Khan say they are determined to succeed  in school and life afterward. They have ambitions of finishing their education,  becoming entrepreneurs and giving back to the community that raised them without  fear of violence or discrimination. 

It is why Black Creek Community Health Centre began its education support  program for youth three years ago, which Kishundial and Khan have been attending  since January after struggling academically and emotionally at their local  public Toronto schools.

Since then, 3,460 Manitobans have used the service, according to a provincial spokesperson.

“I can tell you that number has been steadily growing,” Manitoba health minister Cameron Friesen said during a press conference Tuesday.

“None of us are untouched by this. There (are) the challenges of COVID-19 that we can see and they’re tangible in our every day lives, but the mental health challenges and our anxiety is no less real even though it is more invisible.”
