What You Should Know
Acai Fresh is another acai-based weight loss supplement currently promoting itself through radio advertising. Ads direct listeners to order a free trial of Acai Fresh from the # 1-800-300-9072. We had difficulty finding an official website for this product, or finding out how much it cost after to order after the trial. The supplement is taken only once per day making one bottle last one month. Claims associated with Acai Fresh include an increase in metabolism and better health.
List of Ingredients
Proprietary Blend: Acai Fruit Extract, Green Tea Leaf Extract, Panax Ginseng Root Extract, Pomegranate Fruit Extract, Amla Fruit Extract.
Acai fruit extract is the first ingredient which is expected of an acai weight loss supplement. All ingredients are included in a proprietary blend so we don’t know how much acai the formula contains. Acai fruit is a great antioxidant that will work in the body to fight off free radical damage, but that does not equate to increased weight loss. Common claims made by manufacturers of acai products include detoxing, weight loss and fat loss. These claims are not proven to actually occur when acai fruit is consumed.
Green Tea Leaf Extract is a healthy, proven weight loss ingredient. Clinical studies have linked green tea supplementation to increased metabolism, like due to the caffeine and EGCG levels. The fine print on Acai Fresh claims the total caffeine amount if equivalent to about one cup of coffee, but different cups of coffee have different amounts of caffeine, so how much is that really? Too much caffeine can cause jitters and nausea for some dieters so it is important to reveal exactly how much is included in the Acai Fresh formula.
Panax Ginseng Root Extract is not associated with weight loss in any way. Panax ginseng is commonly used in Chinese medicine to treat conditions like asthma and colds. We could find no reference to fat burning ability. Pomegranate Fruit Extract and Amla Fruit Extract are likely included as antioxidants. Cleansing supplements will typically include fruit extracts because they can have diuretic and laxative effects when taken in the right amounts. We, again, have no idea how much of these fruit extracts are included.
- All ingredients were easy to find online.
- The price is lower than comparable weight loss supplements.
- Not associated with auto-ship or recurring payments.
- Only one ingredient is proven to improve metabolism.
- Acai is not a weight loss ingredient.
- No official website could be found.
Acai Fresh may not be a bad weight loss supplement, but we always question a company that includes ALL ingredients in a proprietary blend. There should be no reason to hide the ingredient amounts unless there is not enough in the supplement to be effective.
