Acai Berry Original is a dietary supplement that is made and manufactured by a company called Vida! Supplements. This product is one of hundreds that are currently on the market that each have claims about what this supposed superfood is meant to be able to provide to people who take it in pill form.

The acai berry actually has a rather dubious past within this industry. It is one of the ingredients associated with some of the largest scams that the category has ever seen. Doctors and celebrities have been extensively misquoted about the benefits of this ingredient, making it very difficult for consumers to find information they can trust.

Overall, what is actually known about this ingredient is that it is a berry that is quite nutritious, with a range of different vitamins, minerals and other nutrients, including a high level of antioxidants. It has been compared to blueberries when it comes to its nutritional and health benefits. That said, because it is native to the Amazon, it comes with a certain exotic appeal that has helped to make it highly popular.

Regardless of what claims have been made, there have yet to be any reputable, sizeable studies that would indicate that there is any direct connection between the use of this ingredient and an improvement in measurable fat loss from the human body. This is especially true when it comes to the use of the ingredient in supplement form and not by eating the fresh berries.

What makes the Acai Berry Original from Vida! Supplements stand out is that they have not placed their product in the weight loss category on their website or on other websites that sell this product. On the official manufacturer’s site, it can be found in the “vitality” category.

However, when you actually click on the product, regardless of the category within which it has been filed, the description refers frequently to weight loss benefits. In fact, other advantages that it is meant to provide are clearly listed in a secondary way. Weight loss is obviously the main purpose of this supplement, followed by maintaining a healthy body weight. While the site does cite research, when looking at that research, it turns out it was conducted on flies, not on humans.

While there may very well be health benefits associated with using Acai Berry Original, there is nothing reputable, as of yet, that would suggest that weight loss is among them.

Lichi SuperFruit is a weight loss supplement that is available over the counter and that is currently being sold under the label of a formula that is new and improved. This product is based on a formula that has lychee fruit in it and that is assumed to now contain ingredients that will offer dieters a greater advantage in accomplishing their goal than had been available to them through the previous formulation.

This product is one of an ever-larger category that claims to be able to help dieters in being able to drop their excess body fat and that will also help those same dieters to keep the weight off once it’s gone. This indicates that individuals who use these diet pills will be expected to use this supplement not only while they are losing weight, but also into the future after they have arrived at their goal weight.

According to the product packaging, within a period of 12 weeks, dieters should be able to reduce their overall waist size by 4.48 percent and they should be able to shed 4.6 percent of their overall body weight, when compared to where they were at the beginning of its use. This is accomplished by combining the use of the product with a healthy diet and a fitness appropriate activity regimen.

The official website, itself, is extremely sales oriented, making it difficult to find any real information about the product. It does claim that users will be able to burn fat, keep the weight from coming back, and increase the metabolic rate. While it does mention that aside from lychee, the product also contains raspberry ketone and green tea, it is unclear as to whether or not that is the complete formula or if there are other active ingredients, as well.

At the time that this review was written, Lichi SuperFruit didn’t appear to be sold on its own through the official website. Instead, it was sold as a part of a broader “Lichi System” that included not only the pills, but also appetite suppressant chews, a meal replacement powder, a 6-day cleanse beverage, and a probiotic supplement.

It is not clear whether Lichi SuperFruit is still supposed to be effective on its own or whether it is designed to be useful only when combined with the rest of the system. The lack of information on the official website doesn’t provide the user with that type of guidance. Moreover, it appears that the product can be ordered only through an auto-shipment program on the official website, in which a 14 day free trial leads into the automatic monthly shipment of the full system. While this could be an exception to the rule, these types of auto-ship programs are notorious for causing consumer struggles with cancellations.

SlimZil is a weight loss pill that is manufactured by Life Smart Labs. That company is also the manufacturer of a number of other diet supplements as well as energy boosters and male and female enhancement products.

Many of the products on the Life Smart Labs list are based on hoodia or acai, and SlimZil is certainly no exception to that rule. Its ingredients are not fully listed on the website. Instead, it simply states that it is a “high potency” product that contains “Acai, Hoodia, Green Tea, and more.” This doesn’t provide the dieter with very much information, except that many of the ingredients in its formula are based more on hype than having been scientifically proven to reach weight loss goals.

Acai berry was the center of a massively overhyped scam in which a fruit from the Amazon region was suddenly labeled as a dieting miracle – even though absolutely no clinical evidence suggested that it promoted weight loss in any way. It didn’t take long for research to indicate that while this is a very healthy food that is quite high in antioxidants, it provided no greater weight loss benefit to eating any other source of antioxidants, such as blueberries – essentially, nothing at all.

Hoodia is a cactus like plant from Africa which has been involved in a similar type of hype. Regardless of the fact that the best scientific research has been conflicting, and there have not been any safety or effectiveness studies performed on humans – particularly in the supplement form as opposed to eating the plant, itself – many companies promise that it is a miracle ingredient for suppressing the appetite. Never has it been linked with actual weight loss.

Green tea has been shown to boost calorie burning when taken in exceptionally high quantities, but as SlimZil’s full ingredients list and substance quantities have not been revealed, it is impossible to know whether enough has been used for any impact at all.

As the full ingredients list has not been provided and the information about the product on the official website is exceptionally minimal, and as the ingredients that are identified are based on hype, not science, it is likely a better idea to look elsewhere for a safe and effective weight loss solution. If you are considering this product, it is highly recommended that you speak with your doctor, first, as the odds are that he or she will try to talk you out of it.
