The: The acai berry is a fruit from acai trees in brazii. Yes, it is normally safe for a cleanse. Like other fruits, if you eat too much of it at a time you could develop nausea, diarrhea or an uncomfortable stomach.

Squat down with the knees, keep back straight. Feel strain? Ease it up. ...Read more
