Sambazon Acai

This Super Food is the Amazon's miracle berry.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

Acai, pronounced ah-sigh-ee, is taking the health-conscious by storm. Grown in the Amazon rainforest, acai has a rich berry-cocoa flavor and is packed with more antioxidants than blueberries and pomegranates, both of which have been heavily publicized for their health benefits. You also get a healthy dose of Omega fats, protein and fiber from the acai berry.

It is recommended that we get at least 3,000-5,000 ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) units of antioxidants per day. It helps keep our hearts, brains, and even skin healthy. However, most people get less than half of the antioxidants needed. With any of the Sambazon Acai products you can get enough of your daily intake in one serving!

Due to some manufacturers using heat to dry acai, most of the nutrition value is destroyed. Sambazon asserts that some other acai pills are so weak that you would have to consume almost 500 of them to get the same nutrition as one of their 3.5 oz packs of acai pulp.

Have been taking this product for 1 month and I have noticed a lot more energy and endurance improvement in my running! No actual weight loss noticed but I already weigh 123 lbs at 5'4". All-in-all I feel so much more energized!

I've been taking the Sambazon Power Caps for 8 days now and I've lost at least 5lbs. I try to watch what I eat, I don't work out much (I have 3 daughters) I definatley recommend it to anyone who's tired of throwing away money on products that don't work. Besides it's not a diet pill which is a major plus.

Picked some up - seems to be helping my energy level. I definitely feel better. I am trying to stay motivated with exercise and healthy eating.

If you can find products like this that are healthy and you actually like, it makes dieting so much easier. Just be smart, eat healthy, exercise and work products into your routine that you can tolerate.

totally easier said than done!! Still working on it.
