Every so often a new food comes into the realm as some CRAZY AMAZING health food that everyone who is "healthy" jump right onto. Right now it is the acai berry. Apparently from the Brazilian forest. Then after a while other info comes out about how it actually isn't that great for you, or how it's exploiting impoverished workers to process it or something like that.

So basically I want to know the dirty details of acai. Is it as amazing as I keep hearing it is? What about growing it? Is that doable anywhere but the Brazilian forest? Has anyone here grown it?

Many multilevel marketing scams are based on juice of the berry. Typically, credit card charges continue after delivery of the product has ceased.

I knew a lady who told me that we could both become fabulously wealthy selling this juice. The stickers that adorned all four sides of her car, are fading now.

This company has been investigated over and over. Read the criticism section and judge for yourself.
