The acai berry is an inch-long, reddish-purple fruit. It comes from the acai palm tree, which is native to Central and South America. As with all similar dark-colored berries like cranberries, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries and blueberries, the acai fruit pulp is rich in antioxidants.

While acai berries have been touted to be the most powerful of all in the “super fruit” category, no known health benefits have been discovered that differentiate the berry from similar fruits.

Some weight loss products on the market advertise Acai as a major ingredient, however no study has yet proven conclusively that the Acai berry promotes weight loss.
