Acai berry supplements, even from reputable companies, are not necessarily going to help you lose weight. While supplement manufacturers market acai products as useful for weight loss, obesity, high cholesterol, detoxification and even erectile dysfunction, research is lacking to support the effectiveness of acai for any health purposes, according to U.S. National Library of Medicine website MedlinePlus. These berries do have a high level of antioxidants; antioxidants may help protect against aging and disease.
Weight loss articles with the Helen Miller byline that link to defunct websites generally list common recommendations for dieting, with no magic bullets.

In addition, exercise regularly, and don’t set your expectations too high for fast weight loss results.
