The acai palm tree, belonging to tropical Central and South America, creates a deep purple fruit. The acai fruit has long been a vital food resource for native individuals of the Amazon region. The Federal Trade Commission has taken action versus firms that marketed acai weight-loss products in supposedly misleading methods. Acai fruit pulp has been used experimentally as an oral contrast agent for magnetic resonance imaging of the digestive tract. Very little research has been carried out in people on the health impacts of acai products. When examining the safety and security account of an acai-fortified juice in rats, researchers found no distinctions in body weight changes in between animals offered the juice and animals not provided the juice. An initial research study suggested that eating acai fruit pulp may decrease blood sugar and cholesterol levels in people that are overweight. Laboratory studies have concentrated on acai's possible antioxidant properties, and a juice blend with acai as the cornerstone has been revealed to have an antioxidant impact in people.
