Q: True or false — Acai
berry weight loss supplements will help you drop pounds fast.
While acai berries are certainly healthy (just like all berries,
they're loaded with a ton of nutrients and fiber), there is no
research to support the rampant claims that acai berry extracts, juices, pills,
or potions will burn fat, speed your metabolism, increase weight
loss, cleanse your system, or boost energy. These claims are bogus,
so don't be fooled!
being said, if you want to try acai berries for their health attributes, stay
away from acai pills and supplements, and instead stick with 100
percent acai juice, unsweetened frozen pulp, or freeze-dried powder.
These products are typically found in health food stores or online. Unfortunately,
you cannot find whole, fresh acai berries in the United States.
yet, you can reap similar benefits AND save
some serious cash by eating a variety of common fruits readily found
in your grocery store — like blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, cherries,
plums, apples, oranges, and grapefruit.
