Acai Berry Select is a weight loss supplement that contains the Acai Berry. The berry is the fruit of the Acai Palm, which grows in the Amazon River Basin in Brazil. It has been taken by the natives there for hundreds of years for energy and rejuvenation. Acai berry is one of the most nutritious foods of the Amazon River Basin and contains B vitamins, minerals, fiber, protein and omega fatty acids.
There are other ingredients added to the Acai Berry Select formula-Green Tea Extract, Caffeine, Chromium, Acai Berry Extract and L-Theanine. While some people may have reactions to the acai berry, it more than likely will be side effects to the additives for weight loss and skin nutrition. It is high in Green Tea Extract and Caffeine, which has been known to give headaches, high blood pressure, nervousness and jitters to some individuals in this and other diet and weight loss formulas that contain them.
The boost in metabolism caused by Green Tea Extract and Caffeine can be felt, and is the primary active ingredients in Acai Berry Select, so those that have sensitivity to caffeine or stimulants should avoid this product. It is advised that you consult with your doctor before starting any weight loss diet or supplement, especially if you have had a history of heart conditions, high blood pressure or diabetes.
Chromium affects blood sugar levels and metabolic rates and L-Theanine is a natural amino acid known for keeping stress levels down, to counteract the high amount of caffeine additive, which raises metabolic rate and can cause nervousness. In addition, Chromium may counteract any diabetic diet or medication, so should not be taken without medical advice.
Acai Berry Select is to lose weight and detoxify, while giving you energy and anti-oxidants. While all the ingredients are natural, they can still cause allergic reactions in some individuals. Perhaps a regular, low- calorie, nutritious, weight loss diet is the safest option, along with a good multi-vitamin, for the high risk groups.
Acai Berry Select is recommended as a supplement to be taken 20 minutes before breakfast and lunch to curb your appetite and help you feel fuller. It is recommended to be taken along with a balanced, weight loss diet and exercise. A diet where you intake fewer calories than you burn is the safest way to lose weight. Exercise increases your metabolism, and helps you burn calories quicker, which has the same effect of the additives to this formula.
