Did anybody try acai berry weight loss pills?

Did anybody try acai berry weight loss pills?

Have not: I have not tried them. But i suspect that dietary fiber may be how they work. 1 ounce of acai berry juice contains approximately 15.6 calories. The açai berry has about 247 calories per 100-grams. 50 grams of powdered acai pulp has about 26 grams of dietary fiber. Because dietary fiber can help one to feel full it may be helpful for appetite suppression. ...Read more

I mix wheatgrass, barleygrass, maca powder, spirulina, chlorella, psyllium husk and scai berry with carrot and apple juice every morning, is it good?

Nothing wrong: There is no concern about any of the ingredients you mention. Am not sure whether to say it is "good" since other unprocessed foods are probably as good. It is an interesting combination of ingredients. I presume you did some research before choosing them? If you feel it helps you then there is no reason that i know of not to continue with it. ...Read more

What is taking garcinia cambogia premium like?

Don't use it: Garcinia cambogia is in most weight loss supplements, and can cause liver failure.It was also used in Hydroxycut which was taken off the market as people died from using it. I see a handful of patients per month with abnormal liver tests after using this medicine. I would NOT recommend it. There is no "magic pill" for weight loss.

Can plexus slim be taken w seaweed nazacort echinachea opc grapeseed garlic Lipitor (atorvastatin) ginger omeprazole fish oil acetyllcartinine & glucosaminecondroit?

Plexus slim has many ingredients; I have reviewed them ; they are all safe and have no known interactions with the things you are taking. However, avoid plexus slim accelerator- it is hazardous! i believe anyone on Lipitor (atorvastatin) should take coq10. See http://bit.Ly/1jjpcpg ; http://bit.Ly/1era8lt. ...Read more

It doesn't matter: Don't expect any real health benefits from this multilevel-marketed supplement. 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.

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. The acai berry is reported to contain caffeine (although some contend it doesn’t), so if you ingested a lot it might cause a headache or insomnia. Because you are taking acai in the form of a pill, it could have additives. Acai berries are taken to assist with weight loss or internal cleansing. Before starting any weight loss program, it is best to check with your doctor. It sounds like you are already aware that you need to eat a healthy balanced diet and to get regular aerobic activity for any program to help you. Take care. ...Read more
