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.
