  • Acai berries
    The acai palm tree, native to tropical Central and South America, produces a deep purple fruit. The word “acai,” which comes from a language of the native people of the region, means “fruit that cries.” The acai fruit has long been an important food source for indigenous peoples of the Amazon region.
  • Acai products have become popular in the United States, where they have been marketed for weight loss and anti-aging purposes.
  • The Federal Trade Commission has taken action against companies that marketed acai weight loss products in allegedly deceptive ways.
  • Acai fruit pulp has been used experimentally as an oral contrast agent for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
  • Acai products are available as juices, powders, tablets, and capsules.
