Acai berries are one of the most nutritious, organic foods available in the market today. They come from South America where they have been used in herbal remedies for centuries. This berry is full of fiber, omega-fatty acids and vitamins. One nutritionist dubs the Acai “the perfect food.”

The Acai-Trim dieting supplement mixes Acai root with several other organic ingredients which, supposedly, promote weight loss, mental alertness, detoxification and antioxidation. This product is manufactured for a California-based company called Amerivite. It is available via the internet and through major store-front distributors (e.g. Wal-Mart).

List of Ingredients

Acai-Trim proprietary blend (800mg): Green tea extract (herb), Psyllium (seed), Fennel (seed), Buckthorn (bark), Goldenseal (whole herb), Cascara Sagrada (bark), Rhubarb (bark), Licorice (root), Ginger (root), Acai (root), and Gelatin.

Product Features

This product contains green tea extract which is drawn exclusively from the foliage of the Camellia sinensis. This herb has long been promoted for its many health benefits. You should exercise caution when taking products that contain green tea extract. A recent report published by U.S. Pharmacopeia acknowledges that some green tea extracts can be harmful especially when ingested on an empty stomach.

This product contains Cascara Sagrada. This powerful bark causes colon contractions which are commonly interpreted as the urge to “use the bathroom.” This bark has a laundry list of potential side-effects and cautions. The inclusion of this ingredient in the AcaiTrim supplement is somewhat curious. This ingredient was probably included because it potentially enhances intestinal and colon cleansing via the evacuation of the bowels. This ingredient would only benefit users who are experiencing constipation and could potentially harm users who have diarrhea.

This product also contains Buckthorn bark. Buckthorn bark is recommended by some doctors as a laxative. Since this ingredient is a stimulant laxative, it has several side-effects and cautions.

Advantages

  • Acai-Trim is available at Wal-Mart.
  • Compared to other Acai-based supplements, Acai-Trim is not very expensive.
  • Acai-Trim may be an effective laxative.

Disadvantages

  • Acai-Trim is not endorsed by the Food and Drug Administration.
  • No lab reports about this product have been published. Lab testing ensures a product’s quality and effectiveness. Since no lab reports have been published, the alleged benefits of this product are unsubstantiated.
  • The label of this product says that it contains gelatin, but does not say how much. Gelatin is a filler with no health benefit.
  • This product contains a few stimulant-laxatives (e.g. Cascara Sagrada, Buckthorn, and rhubarb) in unreported quantities. Two of the laxatives have potentially severe side-effects. Many doctors caution that Cascara Sagrada (20-30 mg per day) and Buckthorn (1.5-7.5 grams per day) should not be taken longer than 8 consecutive days.
  • This product may be an effective laxative, but may not help you lose weight.

Conclusion

Acai-Trim is a combination of many organic ingredients which may enhance a healthy diet by supplying certain vitamins and minerals. Though this diet pill may enhance a healthy diet, it has not been shown to produce weight loss.

Since there is a wide-array of diet-enhancing supplements available in the marketplace, you should compare several of them before making a decision. On comparison, you will find that this product is an average multi-vitamin with little to no weight-loss benefit.

    Mimi

    Take it with a full glass of water on an empty stomach, that’s how I take mine! It gives me physical energy and I never feel hungry, but I will say that it doesn’t help much with mental alertness

    The AcaiTrim I just bought at Sam’s club doesn’t list any of those laxative type ingrediants as stated in this article. I noticed several acai products that were called a clense but not this one.

    I tried Acai trim back on Sept 6 and I finished the whole bottle on Oct 10 combined with healthy eating and vigorous exercise, I had lost around 22 lbs. I say this works cuz it also worked on my friend. I cant find this anymore on walgreen, so I use other acai brand and they dont work, my weight hasnt come down for 2 weeks. I still eating healthy and workout everyday. With Acai trim, I lost about 3 lbs a week and I am 5’6″ and 160 now, need to lose about 20 more. I need my Acai trim, Walgreen need to bring it back on their shelves.

    I have a very sensitive stomach. i just started taking AcaiTrim. it hasnt messed up my stomach in the laxative department. Though im only taking two a day total. i didnt want to jump right into it so im taking it slow. as for energy, i dont know yet. im tired cuz i’ve been working all day…i think it will take a little longer to see if it’s really going to work
