Acai Berries – A Family Superfood

You have probably been hearing a great deal about acai berries lately which are the latest answer when it comes to weight loss.

These are small but easily distinguishable purple and black berries that hail originally from the Amazon rainforests. They are one of the new diet superfoods that are on the market and they are sold as everything from a mash to a juice or even mixed in with yogurt. You can also buy it in powdered form and pill form to help expedite the kind of elimination from your colon that can also speed up weight loss.

Asia berries are classified as super foods because aside from weight loss they offer a very wide range of health benefiters including life extension, free radical fighting and keeping your blood pressure under control. The berry is also a potent immune system booster that can help prevent colds and flues.

One of the unique things about this berry from the rainforest is that it can also help boost energy levels and stamina which assist greatly with our exercise efforts. Some individuals believe that it is actually a mood booster of some sort although technically it is classified as a food both in America and South America.
Also the aecia berry contains very high levels of dietary fiber which can help your digestive system to become more efficient. Less crap is allowed to fester and ferment in your digestive tract and stomach.

This is important, because most people do not take on board sufficient dietary fiber in their normal diet which means that over time, a significant amount of undigested food gets left in your stomach (some claim that there can be up to 20 pounds of ‘rubbish' in your gut that never gets shifted under normal circumstances and that you need to take something that prompts the intestinal process in order to get your bowels moving.)

Hence, as you drink lots more water whilst increasing your consumption of high fiber foodstuffs such as fruit, vegetables and acai, it is quite possible that you will see a very significant weight drop in the first few days as these toxins are flushed out of your system. This could manifest as diarrhea at first but the key is to be patient. Some people suffer this side effect for just a few hours and others for quite a few days as the colon cleans itself out.
