Acai Berry Juice Supplements
The acai palm is a tree native to Central and South America. Acai berries (and the juice from the berries) are high in antioxidants and have become a popular ingredient in many products. A variety of health products contain acai berry: juice, supplements, and foods.
These various products are claimed to provide numerous health benefits. Although it seems that acai is claimed to be beneficial for just about anything, there are a few particular uses that are more commonly suggested, including:
- Treating or preventing the following medical conditions:
- Promoting weight loss
- Enhancing general health
- Promoting youthfulness.
Despite the widespread hype, there is little scientific evidence to suggest that these products really provide such benefits in humans. "Test tube" studies definitely suggest that acai shows significant promise, due to potent antioxidant activity, but such studies do not always reflect how a substance will affect humans.
