Acai berries for weight loss: the questionable benefits
Acai fruits boast excellent properties and benefits for health human and, very often, are “highly recommended” as slimming food. To date, however, there is no scientific evidence to support this thesis and, more generally, the benefits brought about by the consumption of Acai berries are still under evaluation. Therefore, many of the properties of these fruits are mainly attributed to them for commercial purposes. Precisely for this reason, much Internet advertising has been defined as fraudulent and some companies that promote the sale of food supplements based on Acai berries have been heavily sanctioned by the Federal Trade Commission.
So far, the scientifically documented effects only prove that the pulp of the fruit has a very high antioxidant capacity. But we will still have to be patient to know the real benefits of these fruits.
