I’ve been getting quite a few of these emails lately;
The Acai Berry became extremely popular when Oprah interviewed Dr Perricone who stated that the Acai berry was the #1 Superfood and helped with wieghtLoss. (For Free Acai Trial Info Click below link).
Since that time this small berry which looks like a purple grape has become extremely popular. It has been featured on several news channels such as :
* The NBC Today Show which stated that “studies show that the acai berry is one of the most nutritous foods in the world.
* ABC News stated that research has provided evidence that “the acai berry will help you live longer and healthier. That it could help protect you against cancer, protect your heart and even prevent Alzheimer?s disease.
However, it is not only the health, rejuvenation and detoxifcation aspects of the acai berry we are interested in. The fact that it helps the body to lose fat is what many people find of interest and thus we want to try it for ourselves!
A brief excerpt from Dr Perricone?s book:
Acai is good for wieghtLoss because it contains cyanidin, a highly antioxidant phytochemical compond.? This claim is based on a Japanese research report that found evidence that cyanins work by reducing fat asorption and ?draining body fat?. (pp. 59)”.
However, as interesting as it is to read about the power of the acai berry, many people are actually interested in taking it in either a juice or capsule form, for its healthful and wieghtLoss properties.

The fact that I’ve been getting so much of them makes me think it’s all a scam and that they are using Oprah’s name to promote their product. I’ve heard of the acai berry before but not that they were a weight loss product. The first step was to check Oprah’s website and yes it was listed as one of Dr. Perricone’s Superfoods, but there was no mention of it leading to weight loss. Then I found a blog article on Oprah.com blog titled The Real Acai Berry Truth where they led you to believe it had certain weight-loss properties. Way to go Oprah, now I’m confused.
The article was posted November 08 with only one comment.
Just a caution from this dietician…..none of the benefits written about here have been proven in any way. There has been nothing to show the acai berry, used in moderation, will hurt anyone, so feel free to give it a try if you’d like. But much more research will need to be done before such radical claims can be accurately made. Be well informed….check any nutrition information (government resources like USDA or The American Dietetic Association are good sources of well researched nutrition info) and if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
I got to admit the comment was more believable than the post.
Then I found this article on CNN.com about a group that challenges the acai berry weight-loss properties. I found this quote particularly interesting;
Consumers are asked to provide a credit card to pay shipping and handling charges, but begin almost immediately receiving $80 to $90 monthly charges. Thousands of consumers have had trouble stopping those charges once they canceled the free trial offer.
I thought I would follow the link in the mail just to see what would happen and guess what? Yep, a free offer of the wonder berries but they needed my card details for the delivery requirements. I did have 15 days to decide whether or not the berries were working and the opportunity to cancel. Sounds like a whole lot of bullshit doesn’t it? needless to say I didn’t go through with the whole process.
Verdict: This emails goes into the crap pile along with all those crap Viagra emails.
