Acai Berry Information
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 a variety of health drinks, foods, supplements. The berry is claimed to provide numerous different health benefits, including:
- Treating or preventing the following medical conditions:
- Promoting weight loss
- Enhancing general health
- Promoting youthfulness.
Although many medical conditions supposedly can be treated with acai berry, information concerning the effectiveness of this product is currently lacking. Despite the widespread hype, there is little scientific evidence to suggest that acai products really work in humans. "Test tube" studies definitely suggest that acai shows significant promise, due to potent antioxidant activity, but these studies do not always reflect how a substance will affect humans.
