Life in Rhythm. You may have noticed that we use this phrase a lot and wondered, what does it mean? We named our company Tambor, which in Portuguese means drum. For us, a day without açaí sends life out of rhythm. In Brazil, drums play an important role in the culture, setting the beat to which people live, work, and celebrate. Açaí is the same way to us, setting a good rhythm for a healthy and happy lifestyle.
Acai has been a staple food throughout the Amazon for hundreds of years, providing a high source of nutrients to the communities there. Unlike the acai most are familiar with today, its berry pulp had been (and still is) more casually served and eaten as a staple throughout the region, unsweetened and alongside manioc, and perhaps with a main course like fish. Over time the form of which acai is consumed has evolved in Western society, but the incredible natural nutrients of this superfood have remained the same, in all the best ways.
As a superfood, the nutrient complexities of acai are quite amazing. Acai is rich in Omega fats, proteins, minerals, and antioxidants, supporting our bodies and cells with free-radicle fighting compounds. Science helps us to understand so much about this superfood, and at the end of the day we also have to listen to our bodies and pursue what makes us feel our best. We’re all on the pursuit of a Life In Rhythm, and acai is a major part of ours and for so many others across the world.
We hope acai is way for you to keep your life in rhythm too! Enjoy making acai bowls in your own kitchen with home deliveries of our premium grade organic acai. Available on site here.
