Acai berry? Who knows about it?

I've recently heard about acai berry pills and the benefits it can give your health. I have also heard that, when paired with eating right and exercising, it can help aid weight loss.

Have you tried it? Do you know anyone who has? What have you heard? Where do you get it?

    It is almost a given that MOST of those pills are filled with chemicals and who really knows what else. I have been drinking acai for about 2.5 years now. It provides nutrition like other fruits do, and flavor. I often buy in freeze dried powder form from mountain rose herbs. I like the flavor when mixed with ice and fruit in the blender.

    Acai berry is simply another trend to get you to shell out your money for weightloss. I've had a lot of foods with acai in them, and it really just tastes good and in no way effects your weightloss. I'm about to graduate with a degree in anatomy and fitness, and I can tell you firsthand that the ONLY way to lose weight is to decrease your caloric intake either through change in diet or increased exercise. Weightloss = negative calories, and that's it.

    And I don't mean to be negative or anything, but I don't think any weightloss supplement that Oprah supports is likely to hold water when it comes down to it :-/ Her extreme yo-yo dieting techniques could kill her or someone else eventually.

    In short, just be healthy! It works the best of all.

    Many companies offer free trials of Acai so you can 'try before you buy'. That's probably the best bet. This site lists free trial offers:

    Acai berry seems to be filled with antioxidants and lots of other nutritional benefits. However, it is useless as a weight loss product. Acai berry products are available in most health food or vitamin stores. I have NO financial ties to Sambazon, but they are one of the most well-known and reputable companies selling acai. Unlike other companies, I think it is safe to order from their website.

    The acai berry craze is filled with SCAMS, especially on the internet. I would be very cautious about ordering free trials of acai. Do a search for "Acai Berry Scams" on google. Also, many of the people on YA are distributors for various acai companies, and I would discourage you from buying from these companies.

    Regarding scams, I am speaking from personal experience. I ordered a free trial of Acai Berry Power 500. On my next credit card, I noticed an extra charge of $29.95 from that acai company. I called them and they said I had agreed to a personal nutrition consultation for $29.95. To make a long story short, I had to threaten them with a lawsuit before they refunded that extra charge. Then they started to send me shipments I had never ordered.

    I also ordered Acai Berry Supreme. A few weeks later, I got another bottle in the mail, even though I never asked for it. I left the shipping box unopened and wrote on it: Return to Sender. Do Not Charge My Credit Card for This Product. Then I put the item back in a mailbox. I am worried about what my next credit card will say. I've heard of people being charged $89 for the next shipment.
