I'm afraid this supp is utter crap. Any healthy diet works far better and prays less on those expecting it to work miracles.

Hey some people swear by it, and they are not at all harmfull like say steroids and other drug crap poeple take ;). At least these are actually good for you like eating any fruit. And NO these are not going to help force on false muscle and mass or make you run longer and faster as that is not the claim. They are supposed to HELP reduce colesteral levels (HELP that is). and they are NATURAL and contain NO DRUGS.
I know many people (including me) who use this as part of a healthy eating plan along with excercise etc.
"Acai is widely acknowledged to have one of the highest nutritional values of any fruit" < Cant be bad can it?

They are there for people to take if they want to I choose to and so do MANY others thats why the offer is here and as it's money off then it's a DEAL. Which is the idea of this site :thumbsup:

But your opinion is your opinion, and yes one thing you say is correct "Any healthy diet works" did this post in any way say it didnt?

It is interesting to note that the claims made in the original post relate to Acai fruit for which they may, or may not, be true. However none of the claims would appear to have been made for these capsules, i.e. not for the product that is being advertised. The text in the original post, which I assume came from a label or advertisement, seems to be carefully crafted to be non-contentious and also non-attributable to the product either. A bit like describing all the benefits of pine furniture and putting it on a product made of chipboard (which contains wood like these capsules contain acai fruit extracts).

Maybe it's a good deal - I don't know and haven't voted - but please be careful not to attribute the claimed benefits of acai fruit to a derivative supplement.

Voted hot because it comes in a green bottle so must cure everything known to man plus rejuvinates at the same time. Otherwise it would have been in brown or clear bottle which is always bad.

Totally agree the supplements industry is a load of rubbish and prays on vunerable people.

It's not a medicine...


No, it's a "dietary supplement" - this is a legal distinction which makes it exempt from all the testing (of safety and efficacy) that medicines are required to go through but means the manufacturers have to be careful about what claims they make as they they have no evidence that it does anything useful.

This is from Wikipedia:

"(Acai) As a dietary supplement

Recently, the açaí berry has been marketed as a dietary supplement. Companies sell açaí berry products [COLOR="black"]in the form of tablets[/COLOR], juice, smoothies, instant drink powders, and whole fruit.

Marketers of these products... ...make claims that açaí provides increased energy levels, improved sexual performance, improved digestion, detoxification, high fiber content, improved skin appearance, improved heart health, improved sleep, and reduction of cholesterol levels.

Quackwatch noted that "açai juice has only middling levels of antioxidants—less than that of Concord grape, blueberry, and black cherry juices, but more than cranberry, orange, and apple juices." Furthermore, the extent to which antioxidants by themselves promote health is a matter of some debate. No credible evidence suggests antioxidants promote weight loss.

Apparently false claims include reversal of diabetes and other chronic illnesses, as well as expanding size of the ***** and increasing men's sexual virility and sexual attractiveness to women.

As of March 2009, there are no scientifically controlled studies backing up any of these claims. According to ABC News correspondent Susan Donaldson, these products have not been evaluated (in the United States) by the FDA, and their efficacy is questionable"

It's the usual Holland & Barrett dietary supplement, probably of no use whatsoever to anybody. If you believe it'll do you any good then this is a cheap way to buy it, but you'd be better off spending the money on some fruit & veg.

I bought the 1000mg capsules, 60 for £5.99. That was a amazing deal. They do kinda work, but youve got to put in the effort.

Hey, some people swear that prayer works, or healing crystals. The plural of anecdotes is not evidence.
Unfortunately the evidence tells us that magic berries are a con

They may be dodging the ASA who hauled Innocent Ltd over the coals for making daft claims about an acai berry product:

If you put in the effort but don't take the Acai pills - is there any difference?
