Myth Number 1: The Acai Berry helps weight loss. Acai is rich in anti-oxidants that bind with free radicals. Free radicals can damage cells in your body, so anti-oxidants are helpful. Acai also is rich in fatty acids and is high in fiber, both are very healthy but do not help your body burn fat.

Myth Number 2: The Acai Berry helps increase muscle. Many sites claim that guys suddenly have the body of their dreams. Even the actors in from 300, the move about the Spartans, are supposed to have used Acai for their awesome physiques. One of the worlds top fitness experts notes ‘those Acai sites steal photos from other peoples sites and put them on their bogus blogs. Those sites are 100% lies. There’s not a word of truth on any of those sites’. The trainer of the 300 was Mark Twight, and Acai was not included in their training program. The fact is that cannot Acai promote muscle growth aside from the normal function of good nutrition. It is not a natural steroid.
Myth Number 3: Try Acai for free. Beware of free trial offers because they are not free samples. Many feel this is misleading and a scam. The buyer provides a credit card to pay for shipping and handling, about seven dollars. The small print states the free trial offer expires usually in fourteen days and the credit card will be billed if not returned at the end of the free trial. The amount billed is usually forty dollars or more. The credit card is then billed every month and the product is shipped automatically until the order is cancelled.
