Use Acai Berry for Weight Loss

I learned of a new superfood called acai berry that is used for weight loss. Since I'm always wary of big weight loss claims made by certain companies, I decided to do some research before I actually jumped on board.

The verdict? I've discovered that acai berry is filled with vitamins and minerals that can aid in weight loss, building muscle and increasing overall energy-and is rich in antioxidants, fatty acids, fiber and other plant compounds that can increase your health.

I don't believe that acai Berries hold a "magic key" that will help you lose weight, but it will help make your body healthy. When your body is healthy and well-balanced, it will be easier to reach your perfect weight.

  1. 1

    Purchase fresh, frozen or dried acai berries if you can find them. Or you can purchase them in this form online. Since it is a nutrient-rich food, you can cook with it and add it to your favorite recipes. It works well as a cereal topping, in granola, smoothies, yogurt, on low-fat ice cream and in things like muffins and cookies (as long as they're low fat).

  2. 2

    Find acai in the form of a liquid extract. The benefit of taking acai in this form is that the nutrients will be super concentrated. Also, if you live in a climate where acai berries don't grow, this can be a good way to get it as fresh and concentrated as possible.

  3. 3

    Take acai in capsule form. Capsules are good if you want to take acai as easily as possible and still receive the benefits. If you make it a part of your daily vitamin and mineral regimen it will be easier to take it consistently.

Tips and warnings

  • Follow a healthy diet and exercise in order to use acai for weight loss in the most beneficial way.
  • Researchers have found no conclusive evidence that the acai berry holds any secret to weight loss. It is however, rich in anti-oxidants so eating the acai berry as part of a well-balanced diet may help you to ward off stress, and protect your cells.
  • Contact your doctor to make sure it's OK for you to take acai.
