Several plants have recently gotten notice in the United States for their weight reducing powers such as the hoodia cactus that was even featured on 20/20 and a berry from the Amazon rain forest called acai (pronounced A-SAH-EEH).
Several weight loss supplements containing acai have sprouted, taking advantage of its fat-burning, toxin-removing, energy-boosting, and high antioxidant properties.
The acai berry has been revered in the Amazon for hundreds of years because of its complete nutrition profile as it contains vitamins, calcium, amino acids, and essential fatty acids. This tiny purple berry has even gotten the attention of celebrity doctors like Dr. Perricone and Dr. Mehmet Oz.
Aside from acai, Acai-aSlim contains other healthy compounds such as green tea, Hawaii Noni extract, and the antioxidant resveratrol found in the skin of grapes.
Advantages and disadvantages
The acai berry is slowly becoming popular among Northern Americans after being mentioned in many national television shows like Oprah and The Today Show, and its health benefit is not all media hype. It has been found to be an effective source of disease-fighting antioxidants, not to mention that Acai-aSlim also contain extracts from nutritious ingredients.
However, there is no clear scientific evidence that proves Acai-aSlim can help you lose weight, despite the seemingly exaggerated claims posted on its website. It has also been studied that there is no clear connection between consuming acai berry and weight loss. This dietary supplement claims to have no caffeine content, but green tea-a component of Acai-aSlim-is known to have caffeine.
But the bad part out of all these is that accepting its free offer automatically enrolls you to its auto-shipment program, wherein you will be compelled to buy a one month’s supply worth US$74.95. It is best to consult your doctor before taking this supplement.
