How Do I Find the Best Online Acai Product?

Acai is a berry native to Central and South America, particularly the rainforests of Brazil.  The Acai berry is a unique fruit that has many beneficial health properties when consumed regularly.  Acai is loaded with antioxidants, essential fatty acids, fiber, and vitamins (to name a few properties) that can help you to create and maintain a healthy wellness program.  Acai is believed to help eliminate free radicals in the body, which cause harm to your health and to your appearance.  Acai has been shown to have anti-aging properties, as well as detoxing and cleansing abilities.  Acai may also lower cholesterol, stabilize diabetes, promote heart health, boost energy levels, and reduce inflammation.  The Acai berry alone is not a cure-all for health related issues; it is however, highly effective in stimulating the body to achieve health goals, but you need to hold up your end of the bargain through a healthy and active lifestyle. 
           
It is important for you to take a quality Acai product.  Acai is manufactured in many supplemental forms in the U.S, not in its natural perishable form.  It is sold in liquid, pills, capsules, or freeze dried forms.  There are many companies online that sell Acai products, and choosing the best one may be difficult and confusing.  It is crucial to know what information to look for, so you do not get sucked into any gimmicks or wastet your money on low quality products.  Make sure the website visibly shows their contact information.  Even if you are ordering online, you should be able to contact the company if need be.  They should list their address and phone number.  If you need to send the product back for any reason, if you have a question regarding the product, or if you have an issue with billing, you should be able to contact the company directly.  Take caution of companies that do not list their information, or hide it in small print deep within their website.
           
You should also consider the bioavailability to you bodily systems.  Bioavailability simply means that amount of the Acai that is absorbed by your body before it is neutralized by digestive enzymes.  According to studies and research such as those published in the Physician’s Desk Reference, 80-90% of nutrients in a liquid supplement are absorbed by the body within 22-30 seconds.  Pills and capsules take longer to break down, leaving only 10-20% of the nutrients available to your body.  The body has to take extra steps to break down a solid substance, while a liquid form is accepted into your system immediately.  Capsules and pills often contain multiple binders and fillers.  These are usually a way in which to keep the supplement in a compact, solid form.  They carry no nutritional content, and may consist of over half of the ingredients in the pill itself.  Some manufactures of pills and capsules use a heating process of the nutrients to create a solid pill form.  The heating process creates chemical substances similar to insecticides and varnishes, that your body is unable to process and will eliminate in waste (if it doesn’t make you ill).  The heating process can also change or destroy the chemical makeup of the nutrients themselves.  You should check to see if the supplement you are interested in taking is manufactured in a certified and reputable laboratory.          

You should read the back label of the Acai supplement for the ingredient list.  Acai should obviously be the first ingredient of the product.  You should take note that many companies tout their product as an Acai product, but it contains less than 1% of the Acai berry compound.  Many companies jumped on the bandwagon of the Acai craze, simply adding the name Acai to their label without adding much of it to their product.  The Coca Cola Company has recently made headlines regarding their Acai flavored Vitamin Water®.  The company is allegedly being sued for “deceptive and unsubstantiated” claims.  They claim that the water has a triple threat of antioxidants (Acai, Blueberry, and Pomegranate), when in fact none of the key stars are listed in the ingredient list.  The product does have 1% of juice.  Does this even seem like a triple threat?  Acai should be the key element you are looking for, veering away from added fillers, binders, syrups, caffeine and artificial sweeteners.

Viva!Acai™, from the makers of Synflex®, takes all of these suggestions to heart.  Our website should answer a lot of the questions you have about Acai and its benefits to your health.  The website also lists our address and telephone number clearly.  Feel free to call us anytime during normal business hours.  We strive to provide you with a quality Acai product with upstanding ingredients from a cGMP certified laboratory.  We do not add any fillers, binders, caffeine, or syrups to our product.  In every serving you are taking 80% of Acai and 19% Pomegranate.  Pomegranate is similar to Acai with many health benefits of its own.  We have done much of the research for you, so please check out our product guide, where we review many Acai products in all of its forms.
