Are Acai Berry Claims Accurate?

Mind you that I love Acai Berries. I feel a burst of energy after I them. Then I go right into my workouts.

With this said, how accurate are these claims that are out there for acai berries? First of all, let's look at when it is vegan. In this case, the USDA organic symbol is a good indication that the ingredients in the berries and the nutritional value are as listed. Please look for that when you are buying Acai Berries or the supplements. They are rich in fatty acids Omega 3, 6 and 9.

On the other hand, some of the organic Acai Berry juices are two times pasteurized. This destroys most of the nutritional value in them. This leaves them dead, in some cases.

As old as Acai Berries are, they are new to health and fitness for the way that we eat, drink or supplement with them today. If they are not marked with USDA Organic, you don't know whether or not they are processed with animal byproducts.

For the energy that I get from them, I also have to say that I get the same energy from eating quinoa or apples. One of the claims is that you get more energy from Acai Berries, than anything else one could eat or drink. This is false.

The next claim is that the Acai Berry diet works for weight loss. There is no research done, yet to show this. Unless you tried it and it worked for you, no one knows whether or not this is true.

Acai Berry is rich in antioxidants. That's true. Then so are most other fruits and vegetables. So when you get in your daily antioxidants, Acai Berry is not your main source of them. It's one in the group of them, instead.

Another big time false claim, Oprah endorsed the Acai Berry weight loss diet. While she had them on her old talk show, she never put her name on it. Then she said that was false, herself.

The Acai Berry website states that the berries improve stamina because the athlete there endorses it. However in the description, it says that it works with a balanced diet. That will be more like it.

On the Acai Berry website, it also states that Acai Berry stops cancer from spreading. It is illegal to make a direct statement saying that it stops a disease instead of saying that it may stop it. It also says that CNN endorses it. On the other hand, research shows that CNN reports about the Acai Berry business while they never signed their name to it.

Carefully consider these pros and cons about Acai Berry. Then go about it as you wish to.

    Vote no 4. So organic acai berries are another source of omega-3s? How about that! I wish I had known that for my recent article. They certainly sound very nutritious, and they taste good.
    1. pftsusan
      That's true and confirmed that they have the Omegas 3, 6 and 9 in them. The thing is leave them alone and don't process them with anything. If you are, use organic fertizers to process so that little to nothing changes. Thanks for the vote. Did it register because I'm still at 3?

        You are right - I did vote before, and it said 4, but then it reverted to 3, strange! One of the glitsches with this website. I have voted again, so you should still be at 4 now, hope it sticks this time!

      Thank you. I'm still eating the organic acai berry pop tarts because I like them. They give me the same energy that I get from eating quinoa.
