Acai

An organic super food from Brazil packing a healthy dose of nutrients.

QUICK FACTS Start the Diet Now Advertisement
  • Product: A natural berry that grows in the Amazon rain forest
  • Accessibility: Online and some retailers in pill form
  • Diet Type: Dietary supplement
  • Gender: Male and female
BACKGROUND

Just the mention of a product coming from the Amazon has the overtones of possessing mysterious health benefits. Acai (pronounced ah-sigh-ee) is the high-energy berry of a special Amazon palm tree. Its nutritional benefits are so powerful, Dr. Nicholas Perricone lists it as one of his top 10 Super Foods at Oprah's Web site.

Studies have shown that the Acai berry is one of the more nutritious and powerful foods on the planet. Harvested in the rainforests of Brazil, Acai tastes like a mix of berries and chocolate. Hidden within its purple pigment is what makes it the perfect energy fruit. Acai is packed full of antioxidants, amino acids and essential fatty acids. You probably won't find it in your local supermarket, but you may have better luck at health food stores, or from the many products springing up online.

The benefits of Acai are purported to be good for detoxing and maintaining optimal health for balancing your pH level. Proper pH balance is vital to our immune health and for disease prevention and correction. Other benefits you'll enjoy:

  • Acai has a high concentration of antioxidants that combat premature aging. It has 10 times the antioxidants that red grapes have, and as much as 30 times the anthocyanins of red wine. Anthocyanins may have antioxidant effects, possibly fighting cancer, diabetes, and bacterial infections, to name a few.
  • Healthy monounsaturated fats, dietary fiber and phytosterols together help promote cardiovascular and digestive health.
  • An amino acid complex in conjunction with valuable trace minerals, help with muscular health.

PRO
  • Research concludes that there appear to be significant benefits to Acai
  • On Dr. Perricone's list of Super Foods
  • Natural ingredients have disease-fighting qualities
  • Increases energy
  • Offers antioxidants and amino acids
  • Good source of fiber
  • Organic products available
  • Many juices and other products available in major grocers
CON
  • Like other exotic products, Acai can be pricey
  • Many imposters
INGREDIENTS

Each Acai product will vary in its ingredients. Be sure to look for Acai products that are all-natural, and do not include a long list of other ingredients. Acai in its purest form is most effective.

Acai comes in many forms, including the whole berry, juices, powders, capsules and pills, food items and more.

EXERCISE

Like any weight loss product, you should commit to a consistent exercise regimen. Be sure to look for Acai products that support a balanced and active lifestyle.

CONCLUSION

Exotic health foods, like the Acai berry, can provide untapped health benefits, if you can afford it. For whatever reason, these organic products are often on the steep side. But what else is more important than your health? If you can find room in your budget, a product like Acai is worth exploring.

I used to use Acai Fat Burn. I am very selective with weight-loss products because many of them (including this one) contain ingredients that make my heart race or make me edgy. I switched from this brand to Dr Max Powers Burn. It has the Acai and it gives me a natural lift and I love that it is healthy for you. I get the advantage of appetite suppression with energy.

I have made the Dr Max Powers Burn supplement a part of my daily regimen and am enjoying a steady decline in weight.

It works good, I have been taking 1 pill daily with a heavy meal because on the first day I followed the instructions and took 2 with a normal dinner meal and I couldn't sleep all night. I felt like throwing up, I guess it has a really strong effect. I feel really light and I have already lost 3pounds. So I would recommend taking it a bit slow and take 1 pill daily. (This works though!)

BEWARE of TRIAL OFFER for Acai Super Diet Plus and Colon Super Diet Plus.

The "trial offer" is for 3 days access to an online diet tracker software. The pills are a "free gift" if you pay for the trial offer of $7.95. HOWEVER, after 3days your credit card will be charged $199.95 for continuation in the TRACKER program. This has NOTHING to do with the ACAI or Colon Cleanser pills.

Before you order, read the TERMS OF AGREEMENT on the site. The ads are misleading, since you think you are getting a free trial of the pills, however, you are only getting 3 DAYS of the TRACKER program.

Luckily, I called within the 3 days, got through to an operator and was able to opt out of the "program" which is really just an online guide for eating sensibly and exercising.

Interestingly enough, the pills only arrive after the 3 day period is over...the receipt I received said the pills were slated for 3 day delivery.

It should be illegal to advertise in this way. Nowhere in the ad does it say that you are signing up for a 3 day trial, nor does it mention tha thte trial is for an online diet tracker (which I can do with pen and paper, thank you!).

I ordered my Acai dietary products from puritan products with out a scam. Don't know yet if the product works but at least I did not encounter a scam with this company. I have tried almost every diet with no success so I will let you all know if it works.

I just ordered my free trial. I noticed $200 missing from my bank account and called customer service. They said that the charge was for some kind of membership that comes with the free trial. They said it is all explained in the terms and conditions. After arguing with them they refunded my money completely, even the shipping cost and cancelled my membership. I still got the acai supement and the colon cleanse delivered and have done a lot of research. I am excited to try it!!
