“I believe it is the best fruit in the world.”
Cathy Salimbangon poured one ounce of Acai berry juice on a small cup and handed it to me. “Must not expect quick results though but this one makes you younger.”
“See?” Cathy nodded. “We wanted to formulate a healthy drink that doesn’t make women pinch their nose drinking it.”I took a swig and expected my nose to curl up in bitterness. Surprisingly, it didn’t. “It’s tasty!
True enough, Acai berry is quite good! I have had tasted other health juices that tasted like overripe prunes left in the ground to rot and enjoying it is quite an effort. With more nutrients such as Omega, Acai berry is formulated for the Asian market and taste despite the brand being popular in LA.
“We lived in 2008 in the US until we brought the brand in 2010,” said Cathy. “The packing is done in the US but is distributed here in the Philippines. Now Acai is mostly available in venues where people seek health from such as Watsons, 360 Pharmacy, and Rose Pharmacy”
Male and female in their 20s to 60s can enjoy this health drink that can make you young at P2500 per liter for the Premium blend and P1900 for the regular blend. With 2 to 4 ounces a day, you cannot go wrong – nor overdose!

“There are women spending so much on beauty products, why can’t they just spend something for their skin and wellbeing? Beauty inside – glowing!” said the dewy and flawless skinned Cathy. “Advocacy is health after all. Have you seen Amazonian girls? They look so young! Its Acai.”

Anyone who has had the privilege of knowing Cathy will truly be inspired by her candidness and passion for staying healthy. A successful businesswoman who has a zealous attitude on inculcating health to herself and even in her home like a Nazi, Cathy wants to reiterate this to Acai drinkers – “You must also cooperate. Exercise. Balance diet. Drink water always.”
While Acai nourishes our cells, our lifestyle choices also matter.
Can I bring Acai with me when I travel? I asked.
“Freeze it,” advises Cathy.
Thank you Cathy Salimbangon for the warm reception and opportunity to get to know you and Acai more! ACAI is available at Mercury Drugstore, Robinsons Supermarker, 360 Pharmacy and Health Express Stores.
