Is Acai Berry a Scam?

Updated on March 12, 2011

A popular question on the minds of many people is whether Acai berry, and the Acai berry diet, is in fact a scam. Over the course of the past decades, there have been several fad diets and weight loss products marketed to the masses that have perhaps come up short when it came to actually delivering results. Because of this, many people are now skeptical of any new weight loss product or so-called diet to grace the television screen or the Internet. However, as with most diets out there, there are some truths to the claims of Acai berry, and there are also some blatant lies perpetuated by marketers.

For consumers, it is important to understand the truth about Acai berry, as well as the Acai berry. There are many benefits that Acai berry juices and supplements have to offer. For one, the concentrated levels of antioxidants in the berries themselves help combat free radicals that are the results of stress, pollution, and UV rays. Antioxidants are important for keeping the immune system operating in the manner in which it should. They can also help the skin retain moisture, and can prevent many signs of aging. 

A 2008 study revealed a definitive link between some types of cancer and stress. Stress levels of most Americans are now higher than ever before with increased work demands, money problems, raising children, and social pressure. Managing stress effectively is essential to staying well and preventing many types of diseases, even cancer. Antioxidants can help reverse the effects of stress on the body, and it is true that the Acai berry contains more antioxidants per gram than any other food known to man.

Naturally, one of the best ways to reduce the effects of stress is exercise. However, when routine exercise is used in conjunction with a daily Acai berry supplement, the body is in the best shape ever. The immune system is fully prepared to combat any type of illness, energy is restored, and there is greater peace and harmony in our daily lives. 

One of the biggest claims made about Acai berry is that it can help people lose weight. Some companies make boastful claims about the Acai berry diet being an overnight success story. However, as with any other weight loss pill, Acai berry is not a magic pill. This is another area where routine exercise can be beneficial. Acai berry helps to detoxify the body, destroying free radicals that can lead to excess fatigue, and increasing energy levels. Increased energy levels allow people to exercise and burn off excess calories. At the same time, Acai berry works by reducing cravings in the body for other types of food.
