There have been plenty of publications on the net that have been raving about the health benefits.

I would like to provide you with some useful information to help you way up whether it is something you would like to try.
The Acai berry is approximately an inch in diameter (grape like), purple in colour and grows on the Acai palm tree found in the Brazilian Amazon.
Locals have used the health benefits of acai berry as a medicinal agent for thousands of years, but has only become popular to the wider world since the early 90’s.
Its health benefits have been promoted widely and it is with this in mind that some IBS sufferers have tried it to good effect.
The health benefits of acai berry are thought to be due to their powerful antioxidant effect.
Contained within the berry are antioxidants called Anthocyanins. These are present in other berry fruits such as blackcurrants, grapes and redcurrants but in much smaller quantities.
Antioxidants are thought to provide excellent health benefits and have been promoted as a possible way of reducing the risk of developing heart disease and various cancers.
The berry also contains vitamins, sugars, fiber, amino acids and fatty acids.
Health benefits of Acai berry have been promoted in many different products.
These include general Acai berry health food products, Acai berry drinks, Acai berry weight loss products, Acai berry beauty products and cosmetics.
The evidence as a weight loss product is not proven. It has also been promoted as a way of providing increased energy and sleep properties as well as other claims such as increasing libido and boosting the immune system.
Having done a literature search, at present there doesn’t appear to be any evidence based trials of the Acai berry in IBS.
However from researching this acai berry information, it is clearly exciting that reports from individual Irritable Bowel Syndrome sufferers on blogs etc have been positive.
Whether this is through the high antioxidant properties or due to the some of the other constituents such as the fiber or vitamins remains to be seen, but clearly it is a natural product that may provide you with some benefits.
