Given so many marketers of acai berry on the market, how do you know what's authentic?

Go down to your local organically-grown farmer's market and get some really nice fresh fruits and vegetables instead. It'll probably be healthier, definitely be tastier, will cost a lot less, and you're not rewarding people for making baseless claims. A good holistic practitioners can guide you to stuff that's real.
