For such a lauded super fruit, I am not sure how much good this has done me.Has anyone had any side effects?
I am listening to everyones success stories. I received the trial size of acai max juice powder. It came in capsules. The instructions were to take 2 a day. The second day my stomach cramped pretty bad, then I began to feel really dehydrated so I stopped taking it. Did anyone experience this or did I purchase the wrong acai max juice powder?Not Helpful

My sister suggested I take this just as a nutritional supplement. Next time I'll read more about the product before spending 40 bucks. After the bottle was empty I decided to research what Acai Max actually does. It can help lower body fat and cholesterol. In truth, I don't need to lower any of that. So it is a good product, just not for me.Pretty Good
This lowered my cholesterol over a period of time. I feel safe when using this product. This product also tastes really good so I don't mind taking it. The only thing that I don't like about this product is the price, but I can't complain since it does lower my cholesterol. Overall this is a good product. I would recommend this to anyone that wants to lower their cholesterol.Lowered cholesterol safely!
My cholesterol had reached a level where my doctor was threatening to put me on prescription medication. Dieting alone did not lower it to his satisfaction, and I was adamant about not taking Statins.
I began researching the potential of natural supplements for cholesterol and stumbled upon Acai. I purchased the Acai Max because I had read that in liquid form, it contains much more of the "good stuff" than in dried form. I hoped this was true because the cost seemed to reflect it!
I felt very safe taking Acai after spending many hours reading about its history. I wasn't sure it would help, but felt pretty certain that it wouldn't hurt.
I continued on the same diet that hadn't helped in more than 8 months, but began taking Acai Max, too. I really like the taste!
I had been taking it for about 4 months when I went back for another blood test. My cholesterol was definitely on its way down! Maybe the diet finally started helping, but I believe the Acai Max is what helped.
The only "side effect" was liking the taste and wanting to drink a lot more than I should!
I also noticed an improvement in my arthritis pain. I was taking a prescription NSAID and within a week of starting Acai, I had cut the dosage to half of what it had been.
I'm happy to know this works for me because I did not feel safe with the Statin medications.Take it or leave it.

This product is good. It's not watered down like some others, so that is definitely a plus. But, it's pretty much the same as any of the other brands out there....so take your pick. I guess you just have to look at price when it comes to this product, because I really haven't witnessed anything that makes it stand out more than other Acai juices.

This is all a load of rubish

As a dietary supplement
Recently, the açaí berry has been marketed as a dietary supplement. Companies sell açaí berry products in the form of tablets, juice, smoothies, instant drink powders, and whole fruit.
Marketers of these products make claims that açaí provides increased energy levels, improved sexual performance, improved digestion, detoxification, high fiber content, improved skin appearance, improved heart health, improved sleep, and reduction of cholesterol levels. Quackwatch noted that "açaí 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."
Furthermore, the extent to which polyphenols as dietary antioxidants may promote health is doubtful. No credible evidence indicates any antioxidant role for polyphenols in vivo, but rather in minute concentrations, they may affect cell-to-cell signaling, receptor sensitivity, inflammatory enzyme activity or gene regulation. Specifically, there is no scientific evidence that açaí consumption affects body weight or could promote weight loss.
According to the Washington, D.C. based Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) thousands of consumers have had trouble stopping recurrent charges on their credit cards when they cancel free trials of açai-based products. Even some web sites purporting to warn about açai-related scams are themselves perpetrating scams. Apparently false claims include reversal of diabetes and other chronic illnesses, as well as expanding size of the penis and increasing men's sexual virility and sexual attractiveness to women.
As of March 2009, there are no scientifically controlled studies backing up any of these claims. According to ABC News correspondent Susan Donaldson, these products have not been evaluated (in the United States) by the FDA, and their efficacy is questionable. In late 2008, lawyers for The Oprah Winfrey Show began investigating alleged statements from supplement manufacturers who suggested that frequent Oprah guest Dr. Mehmet Oz had recommended their product or açai in general for weight loss.
