Acai Berry Diet & Cleanse As SEEN on Oprah - Does it Work?

Thursday, September 2, 2010

If you're a regular viewer of the Oprah Winfrey Show or even if you aren't, you still may have now become aware of the powerful superfood Acai Berry that is becoming well known as the Acai berry diet & cleanse. The main lingering question though is does it work? Well in this article I will give you the insights needed to understand what the acai berry diet and cleanse is doing and if you are seriously looking for weight loss I'll provide some other alternatives that are proven to work significantly better than anything else.

So what's all the hype with Acai?

Well what it comes down to is that the acai berry contains a very high level of nutritional benefits that can optomize health, it contains a very high level of anti-oxidants which destroy cancer causing free radicals. To make a comparison, blueberries are also highly touted for their own anti-oxidant abilities, however acai berries contain over 300% more anti-oxidants when compared with blueberries. It is also being promoted for its anti-aging benefits because of this as well, since high levels of anti-oxidants in the body slow the aging process, as well as reduce the development of diseases.

Acai also carries relatively high amounts of omega fatty acids which can help with weight loss, as well it has a variety of minerals and vitamins that can all assist in keeping your metabolism at its highest level when not active.

What are the Downsides to the Acai berry Diet & Cleanse?

Well the fact that people such as Oprah are promoting Acai Berry for both a diet and cleanse is somewhat misleading for many people. As what it simply comes down to is consuming Acai Berry juice every day with a fiber shake which will help to clear out your colon. There is no real specific diet that accompanies it beyond this. So in reality its just a colon cleanse with a highly nutritional juice. The juice which I might add is VERY Expensive. Typically Acai berry juice sells for anywhere from $40-$60 per 30 day supply! Which is completely limits this option to only those with money to burn, not necessarily fat!
