Every week we hear about a new weight loss food that will help us shed the pounds. And yet it never seems to end up working like that. However one of the weight loss ‘superfoods’ that seems to have withstood a fair bit of time is the Acai berry.
Probably most famous for the endorsement it got from Oprah herself, theAcai berry has been a weight loss hit with many, many people. But many more yet doubt how powerful it could be.
So rather than make outrageous claims, and wheel out testimony after testimony, which, after all, we would just doubt anyway, we thought it best to focus on the science of how the Acai berry is able to help people to lose the weight that they want to.
There are a number of ways that the Acai berry can work to help you lose weight. Each of them is an important part of the weight loss jigsaw.
It is important to remember though, that Acai supplements by themselves will have little impact. They are designed to help emphasize aweight loss program. You will still need to eat healthily and exercise regularly if you want to lose weight.
* High in fiber – This is important, especially for those that want to lose weight via a controlled diet.
Healthy fiber foods send a message to the brain telling it that it’s stomach is full well before any other type of food. This means that by using Acai berry supplements your brain decides it needs less food than it otherwise would.
* Improved Digestion – The high fiber content has another role to play – it helps improve the digestion. So often food gets stuck in the digestive tract, simply decomposing in there. This can cause us to feel bloated, lacking in energy and simply ill. It also reduces the efficiency of the digestion process.
The high fiber content of Acai berry supplements helps to unstick these blockages, improving our digestion and releasing excess food.
This improved digestion means that we absorb more vitamin and nutrients than we would otherwise, and so require less food to reach the same targets our body needs.
* More Energy – By removing this blockage in the digestive tract we divert energy from dealing with that to elsewhere in our body. Combine this with the high protein aspect of the Acai berries, and all those nutrients and vitamins we mentioned before, and you get a lot more energy from a small amount of acai berries.
