All this goodness in Acai berries come without any unwanted side effects.

To top it all acai tastes great. A rich, bitter sweet taste, with lingering undercurrents of dark chocolate. So good in fact, I use the acai to make delicious tasting, healthy smoothies.

Rather than use an acai juice or concentrate, I slice the capsules open and squeeze the liquids out. That way I get all the benefits of concentrated acai pulp powder. Nutritious, tasty and healthy. What’s not to like.

acai capsules testimonialsJan, thanks... When we first became interested in a good quality acai supplement, we made the biggest mistake possible and signed up for one of those so called free trials. After being billed $220 for the free trial we managed to cancel but only after endless phone calls to our bank and credit card company. We are still trying to get our money back.

Luckily for us, we decided to give acai another try and after some research we came across your site. Your advice about the acai sounded spot on so we went ahead and tried Perfect Acai. It totally changed our minds.

More energy and new zest. It's like a kick in the pants (a very welcome kick in the pants mind).

Top marks for recommending a quality product from an ethical manufacturer.

Many Thanks
Kim + Brian
