Health Notes

Acai

Acai
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

Parts Used & Where Grown

Clusters of round, dark purple-to-black, berry-shaped acai fruits are harvested to make juice, ice pops, and herbal supplements. Ethnobotanists have also documented folk medicine uses for the seed oil, fruit rind, and roots. The inner core of the thin trunk of the acai tree is well-known as the source of hearts of palm. Acai is primarily grown in the Para region of the Amazon estuary, in the northern region of Brazil. It also grows in French Guyana, Panama, Ecuador, and Trinidad.

Comments about Vega® Sport Pre-Workout Energizer – Acai Berry:

An excellent, excellent product. If you are expecting that "jittery" feeling this isn't the product for you. I find that more than anything, it helps me focus during my lifting routines. I get pumped up but not as much as I do with BSN N.O. XPLODE. I tried this product because of the ingredients and reviews on other websites. It does not upset my stomach, no itchy feelings, just mental focus and a small boost of energy with no crash.

If it were cheaper, I would buy it all the time. Bought it on sale but can't see myself paying for this regular price as it is - after all - a pre-workout drink.

      Tastes really good, better than kool-aid and I am pleased with its effectiveness. While it technically has no stimulants in it I feel vibrant after taking it before a workout.
