Acai-aSlim is a product developed by a company hoping to take advantage of the whole ‘superfoods’ trend. These are actually a list of about ten foods that are not just incredibly healthy, but also are beneficial to the immune system, rich in anti-oxidants and in some cases, thought to have anti-aging properties.
Acai berry is one of the most talked about superfoods and has been featured on Oprah and mentioned in Dr Perricone’s ‘The Perricone Promise’ bestselling book. As the name suggests, Acai-aSlim contains this powerful berry and seems to promote itself as a weight loss and cleansing product.
The Acai-aSlim official website is an attractive page featuring some useful information about the acai berry and the product itself. It does mention ‘The Perricone Promise’ and shows TV network logos, suggesting that the product has been endorsed by the companies, which is actually not the case. Despite the amount of information about the acai berry, the website on the whole is severely lacking: no FAQ section is featured, only one small customer ‘success story’ is shown and no clinical trials are cited as proof of the product’s effectiveness.
Details Of Acai-aSlim
Acai-aSlim is a blend of some potent ingredients. The main component is the aforementioned acai berry, a powerful anti-oxidant that comes from the rainforests of Brazil. Also included is Hawaiian Noni extract, which claims to have positive effects on the immune system, boost energy and increase the body’s ability to heal. Usually present in red wine, Resveratrol is used for its anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant effects, plus it helps to activate the ‘cell survival’ enzyme, slowing down the aging process. Finally, green tea extract is added which again, is not only a good anti-oxidant but can help increase the body’s fat burning (thermogenic) ability.
Unfortunately, no product label is shown for Acai-aSlim and the ingredient amounts are not known, making it hard to judge their overall potency. No dosage instructions are offer, nor information as to how much weight the user can expect to lose, and over what time period.

Acai-aSlim – The Bottom Line
With so many complaints against the company and such little information given on the website, Acai-aSlim is a product that simply cannot be recommended. One of the major complaints was that despite the free trial offer claiming to be for 30 days, the consumer must cancel within 14 in order to avoid being enrolled for auto-shipping. Not only does this mean that they are sent a new bottle and receive a new charge every month, but, according to the small print, are also signed up for the ‘Fit Factory’ club (a diet and exercise plan) at an additional cost of $19.95 per month.
There is no denying that the acai berry is a good, powerful fruit, but unfortunately Acai-aSlim is not the best way to add it to the diet.
