Acai berries are small dark purple berries and resemble the blueberries not only in shape and color, but in the high amounts of antioxidants as well. It is these antioxidants that can help you to lose all unwanted weight when combined with a healthy diet.
How Does Acai Work?
The first thing acai does to your body is improve your digestive system. It cleans out your intestines of all the fecal matter that has built up along your intestinal walls for years. Once this fecal matter has been removed your digestive system begins to work better. Then acai can begin to clean your whole body at a cellular level and remove all unwanted and stored fat cells.
Acai helps to improve your metabolism so that the foods that you eat are turned into energy faster, and as a result are able to leave the body much quicker. Therefore the foods you eat are less likely to be stored away in extra fat cells.
Due to the high amounts of nutrients in acai, your body will not crave for as many junk foods, as these cravings are often the result of nutritional deficiencies. On top of that you will also not be as hungry, and feel full longer, thus allowing you to snack and eat less.
Acai berries are loaded with high amounts of amino acids which help your body to build muscles. Now you may not want to build muscles, especially if you are trying to lose weight. But did you know that muscles will help you to burn fat cells? So in order to make the most out of acai you should engage in moderate exercise such as running or just walking to help your body increase in muscle tissues, so that you can burn even more fat.
Boosts Energy Levels
Acai can also help to boost your energy levels. It helps you to fall into a deep sleep at night so that you can wake up feeling rested and energized. This will help you to get more exercise, which in turn will help you to lose even more weight.
There are few side effects associated with acai, and these are mainly those which are normally associated with any kind of cleansing or detox program. The symptoms include headaches, abdominal discomfort and diarrhea. As your body goes through the cleansing stage you may also feel fatigued. Whatever symptoms you experience, they should go away within a few days, or once your body is cleaned out.
