Little has been known of the Acai berry until recently, when celebrity endorsements and a plethora of new products have hit the market. The small purple berry grown in the Amazonian rainforest of Brazil has been ingested by natives for many years. Aiding in a healthier digestive system, it cannot be used in its natural berry form because it is highly perishable.

The berry has reached its height in the United States within the past five years because of the nutritional value of each berry. Chalk full of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and omega-3 and omega-6, the Acai is considered the biggest super food of its time. With the nutritional value of many fruits put together, the berry also aids in weight loss. When purchasing the Acai berry in any form, its best to check the nutritional fact sheet. If there isnt one, then it most likely is a scam.
