In brief, What is Acai Pure?
Acai berries are one of the popular ‘superfoods’, i.e. extremely healthy, anti-oxidant rich foods that are recommended to be added to all diets.
Acai Pure is a dietary supplement that detoxifies and purifies the body and promises to flush out pounds of built-up waste from the digestive tract. The Acai Pure website is user-friendly and attractive but does not supply a lot of information about the product.
There are two customer testimonials accompanied by before and after shots and a reasonably lengthy FAQ section. It is unfortunate that the company uses the misleading sales tactic of making the consumer believe the product has been endorsed by leading television networks and shows (in this case, Oprah, CBS and ABC) when the truth is that they have simply mentioned the benefits of Acai berries. Similarly, the Acai Pure site features celebrity photos, although they have nothing to do with the product.
Acai Pure is offered in a free trial, with the user only paying for shipping and handling. However, like most of these offers, the consumer should be aware that by ordering the free trial, they are enrolled in the auto-shipping program, or ‘Acai Pure Lifestyle program’ and should expect charges to appear on their credit card for the full amounts.
What are the Ingredients of Acai Pure?
By ridding the body of excess waste, the user should not only experience a weight loss of between 10-25lbs in one month, but, according to the company, also relieve gas, bloating and bad breath as well as experiencing an increase in energy.
The ingredients responsible for these effects are listed on the site, but because they are contained in a proprietary blend, the exact amounts are not disclosed. The blend is a mix of fiber and herbs all designed to stimulate the digestive tract and produce increased elimination. The major fibrous substance is psyllium which is combined with:
- Cascara sagrada
- Fennel, buckthorn
Directions for usage state that Acai Pure should be taken up to three times per day, starting with one capsule in the evening and increasing per night to the maximum dosage.
Although the ingredients should be familiar to many consumers of health products, the company offers no explanation for any of them, except the acai berry.

In Summary – Acai Pure Review
Acai Pure seems to be a reasonably good product judging from the website, but after seeing the amount of complaints reported against the company, it is obvious that it should be avoided. Most of the complaints involve the consumer being charged for items (or ‘samples’) not ordered and customer service dissatisfaction (i.e. not being able to contact the company).
There is no doubt that Acai berry is a powerful and beneficial food, but it can easily be added to the diet in many other ways, including juice, powders or supplements from more reputable companies.
