But before getting into the side effects of Acai berry, first let’s briefly discuss about Acai berry:
The Acai palm tree is native to the northern area of South America and is grown widely in Brazil and other African regions. Botanically, Acai berry is referred to as Euterpe oleracea. It bears small reddish-purple fruit which is an important food source for Brazilians and people of the Amazonian tribes. The berries grow in bunches and resemble small grapes, which are green when young, and turn purple as they ripen. The fruit has a single seed inside and is surrounded by an oily coating. The puree of the Acai fruit is widely used in the preparation of ice-creams, desserts and jellies.
Acai berry has gained an immense popularity owing to their multitude of health benefits. The berries are used for making medicines, which help to treat various digestive and skin problems. Pure and unprocessed Acai fruit juice and puree are relatively free from any side effect. It is the addition of ingredients like caffeine, sugar, tobacco, toxic fillers to Acai berry supplements which make it unsafe for consumption.
