Ultimate Acai Diet

As heard on SiriusXM radio:


Says the ad: “You’ll burn fat, control your appetite, and get an energy surge like never before. If you want to lose 10, 20, maybe even 50 pounds, order the Ultimate Acai Diet right now.”

But according to a warning from the Center for Science in the Public Interest:

Açai began attracting attention in 2005 on the belief that its juice was especially high in antioxidants. In truth, açai juice has only middling levels of antioxidants—less than that of Concord grape, blueberry, and black cherry juices, but more than cranberry, orange, and apple juices. Even so, the extent to which antioxidants by themselves promote health is a matter of some debate. No credible evidence suggests antioxidants promote weight loss.

Consumers should think twice about spending money on any supplement making over-the-top claims
