Question by emilyonfire: Does the Natrol Acai Berry Supplement work?
I’m 15 and have moderate acne, I wanted to know if these pills will work for that. Also, I’d like to lose a few pounds, maybe 15ish. It’s really hard for me to do it by just diet and exercise because it’s naturally hard for the women in my family to lose weight. I’ve been trying for quite some time now. If I add this to my diet and exercise will it help me lose weight [the every day supplement]. I’ve read through the side effects, will it make me have explosive crap in the middle of school..because that would be a problem. I don’t even know if I can buy it by myself, but I’m really considering getting it.
Thanks for the help.
To add, I don’t eat unhealthily, and I ride my bike for at least an hour a day, added to yoga and walking everywhere I go, including a mile and a half one way to school. So I’m not lazy.

No, it’s a scam. It’s a bit of dried berry, no different to raisins, cranberries or any other dried fruit. The acai scam is famous on the internet, mainly used to run up huge repeat credit card bills, avoid at all costs.
“…it’s naturally hard for the women in my family to lose weight.” No it isn’t, that’s just an excuse used by people who aren’t trying hard enough. Sure, genetics can increase the ease by which you gain weight and how much you lose, however it just means you’re going to have to try harder.
Quite simply, you’re probably eating too much and not exercising enough. There’s no quick fix diet or pill that’s going to help, you need to change your exercise habits and diet permanently.
