In brief: Simple answer: NO!

Don't believe all the hype about acai.
All the same crazy claims were also made for hoodia, chromium, products claimed to block cortisol and a bunch of other things. If you are trying to lose some weight, keep a diet log, cut way back on potatoes, bread (of all kinds), pasta, cereal, and rice and get more exercise. Then give it some time. Don't waste your $ on these supplements.

In brief: Partly

Acai berry diet pill works in the sense that the antioxidants and minerals found in the acai berry diet pills add fuel to muscle with fatty acids and aids in weight loss with its high content of fiber.
Just like fiber supplements, the acai berry also makes you feel fuller and help in expelling waste and toxins. When toxins are released, the body can function properly or in a sense, run more effici.
