AFTER STARTING ACAI BERRY I SPENT HALF THE TIME IN THE BATHROOM AND THE OTHER HALF IN BED WITH STOMACH CRAMPS AND BODY ACHES. I ONLY LASTED 2 WEEKS. WITHIN A WEEK I WAS BACK TO NORMAL, BUT NO WEIGHT LOSS.

Comment:
After using acai berry in pill form for about 2 weeks, I developed severe stomach cramps. I stopped using the product, within 24 hours I was feeling better, after 48 hours the stomach cramps stopped completely. I will try them again, in one week, to see if the stomach cramps reappear.

Comment:
I like taking the Acai but for some reason after taking it for a while, it causes me to have muscle cramps especially in my thighs. A health store employee stated that they had never heard of this before but suggested that it is taking too much potassium or something out of my body

This is very helpful supplement. But to those who are having trouble with it remember you should take it with a colon cleanser and it isn't a miracle drug! It is just a supplement that you are supposed to take in conjunction with healthy diet and regular exercise!
