There is no well-established standard dosage for acai because the product typically comes in the form of foods or beverages. Since the plant has not been adequately studied in humans, there is not enough information to determine an appropriate and beneficial dose. It is best to follow the dosing guidelines on the label of your particular product.
It is difficult to recommend a "dosage" for acai, since it is consumed in so many different forms, such as in juices and dietary supplements. Also, even if this were not a problem, the best doses have not yet been scientifically established. In many cases, it does not even make much sense to talk about an acai dosage, since many products are foods or beverages.
Acai has been studied very little in humans. There is certainly not enough information to know how much acai would be most beneficial. Since there is no good information to guide you in choosing an acai dosage, it is reasonable to follow the instructions provided on the label of your particular product.
Some considerations for people taking acai to keep in mind include the following:
- Since the manufacturing and processing of foods and supplements is not closely regulated, compared to medications, it is important to choose a trustworthy manufacturer of your acai products.
- If you have any chronic health problems or take any prescription medications, it is a good idea to check with your healthcare provider before taking acai.
- If you are unsure about anything related to acai dosing, please talk with your healthcare provider.
