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've been trying this product for quite sometime now and I've lost 10 pounds already...I've been exercising. The only problem is that I've been doing some research of my own, and I soon realized that the testimonial story that they have on the acai berry website is the same testimonial for all the other acai berry websites. The only difference is they use a different picture and a use the state and town that you are from to show you that anyone can use the product. I did some more research and found out that Oprah and Rachel Ray advertised the acai berry wine or the drink considering it as antioxidants NOT as a diet product. As I watched the videos from these shows, I was absolutely amazed. Please don't waste your money on a product like this.

OMG, I'm so glad I read all your comments!! I was ready to place my "free" order today and just before I put my credit card # in the order box, I read the fine print regarding billing my credit card next month, 78.00!!! Thanks so much for the comments. What a SCAM!!

This was a mistake to order Acai Burn! Not only did the diet pill not work, AT ALL, but it was such a hastle to cancel the order. The "free sample" was not free and I was charged the full amount. Even after I cancelled my account, I was still getting charged. When I signed up for the diet supplement, I signed up for other things that I was not aware of. It has been three months since I cancelled with Acai Burn and I'm still getting random charges and having to cancel things I didn't even know I ordered. I thought I was ordering 1 bottle of diet pills to see how they worked. What a mistake!!! Don't waste your time or money...the entire thing is a SCAM!!

I havent tried it yet and was about to off the site with the free trial...but after seeing taht the credit card numbers had to be put in i didnt order it. So instead im going in the morning to gnc to buy them there. Its only about 20$ if you purchase them there. And only about 15$ online from gnc.

I never had a chance to try it. Once I saw a charge of $79.99 on my credit card, I called
and canceled. It never said you'll be billed
mon!thly. All it said was a free trial for the
acai berry, and a free trial for the colon cleanse.
Fortunately, I got to them just in time! But I
really feel for those young people who are
desperate, and hoing that this will really
work, only to find out it was a rip off the
whole time. My advise is don't go for it.
Those people up there who said it worked
and lost a million pounds, work for the acai
berry industry. Save your money. Exercise,
cut out the carbs. Eat sensibly. You'll be
all right!

I didn't receive the bottle until after the free trial, so I was charged $85 for the trial bottle that was supposed to be free. I tried to cancel the acount three times and now am going to have to deal with my bank to get this reversed.

I too had a very difficult time getting a two month refund. It took me FOREVER to get a customer service rep on the phone to first cancel my order. After I canceled, my credit card still was being billed. I had to file credit card fraud charges and eventually get a whole new credit card. I did not lose any weight and the pills made me very sick to my stomach.

I too signed up for the sample product. It didn't arrive until about 9 days later. I started right away. I was billed 2 times. I cancelled right after that. This was the end of January. I received 1 bottle. I just got off the phone with them for the 4th time since then and told them to refund my money since I still have not gotten my 2nd bottle they billed me for. We will see if that happens
