Acai is one of those fruits that actually deserves all the hype
BUT, and this is a big but, you need to be extremely careful of the acai you use. Look at the ingredients, and try to find a sugarless acai solution with no other additives if possible. Odds are, you'll have to order it online unless you have access to a health foods store. If you're into acai bowls, get into the habit of making your own so you can control the added sugars.
Acai powder is more versatile, as you can add it in to basically anything you eat. Smoothies, yogurt, juice--whatever you want! Acai berries are an antioxidant powerhouse, with many more antioxidants than other berries.
