As KQC and Michael have noted, it's supposed to be a superfood..

I've tried it as a juice .. not my cup of tea tastewise .. blueberries are tastier

You can superfoods that are A LOT less cheaper and less exotic.

As Umgmu says Blueberries and in general all kind of berries. Broccoli is a everyday superfood, so is a pleasent thing as 70% + pure dark chocolate.

Green Tea is a super drink, and if you do not like its taste it can be had in a citrus/lime version.

Hi guys!!! Acai is a really good fruit for your health, although doesn't have a good taste. I;m from Brazil and Acai is from there. A really good thing is to eat the pulp of Acai plus bananas and Guarana. If you can find Guarana in the US which I think it's not gonna happen, try it.It gives you a lot of energy, but if you don't work out you get really fat.

I tried a drink called Monavie. Had the shits for 6 weeks. My joints felt good at first, but then they were back to normal after about 3 weeks. I don't think Acai is for everyone.

if the concept of acai berries is to help clean out your colon, i can do that myself and lose the weight.  not a scam because it probably works, but oprah really got suckered into help marketing this fruit.
