Juliano's sporting career began in the small town of Sao Paulo, Brazil where his grandmother supported his swimming lessons in a private club. He showed a talent early on when he became the best breaststroke swimmer in his region.
Now competing as a triathlete, Juliano has made Acai Roots an important part of his training regimen. Fresh-harvested acai gives him the stamina to keep going hard when his competitors are slowing down.
As a Brazilian football player, Leovegildo Lins da Gama Júnior, known simply as Júnior, was known for his versatility. He played at left back and on the left of midfield for Brazil due to his two-footedness (despite being naturally right-footed). Júnior was named by Pelé as one of the top 125 greatest living footballers in March 2004.
Now working as a television commentator for Rede Globo, Júnior still stays in great shape with products from Acai Roots — proving that you can have it both ways, with great taste and healthy nutrition!
Brazilian big-wave surfer Igor Lumertz has to stay fit. He needs the stamina and strength to keep paddling, and the athleticism and balance that enable him to position himself on the big waves at Mavericks, Waimea Bay and other spots around the world.
Acai Roots products are part of Igor's daily routine, giving him the advantage of great nutrition and health, and delicious taste.
