H&B’s own brand Acai Berry is cheap, but it’s the lowest extract ratio we’ve reviewed so far (20:1). Steer clear.
i have been taking the acai berry daily clence for just a week and already i have lost 3lb, i no longer feel hungry between meals, you do have to wait around 3-4days before you feel a difference, yes this product is a little expescive but worth every penny !
I seen the h&b acai triple strength capsules on offer for £5.99 down from £26. I have been taking them for 3 days and I have took the aloe colon cleanse tablets for the past 2 nights . I have lost 4 lbs already. I am amazed as I had been on weight watchers for 4 weeks and the scales did not budge, I had even visited the doctor because I thought there may be some underlying reason for not being able to lose any weight.
I want to try the acai daily cleanse because I am still finding it a little difficult to have bowel movements but this is probably due to me taking iron (I’m anaemic ).
I never really feel hungry now it’s great!!
Been taking the Acai cleanse pills for just over a week and have also cut out snacks along side. I now feel much lighter inside and have a bit more energy already. I did have some mild wind and cramps in the first 24 hours and have gone from going to the toilet daily to bi-daily, but I then go 2 – 3 times in the one day! The tablets have supressed my appetite and I am not hungry betweem meals, which is a revalation for me! 5lbs dropped already and 2″ off my waist. I think those who have bad gas and cramps have had bad diets before and their insides are clogged with rubbish. Give it time chaps and adjust your diet as well as taking the tablets and I think they’ll work – alone they are not a miracle cure!
Have just purchased acai triple strength and the cleanse from H&b I am loosing weight with weight watchers so thought I get the capsules to give me a helping hand as got two stone to shift I will keep every one posted let you know my weight loses fingers crossed.I have lost 2 half stone with slimming world just switiched to weight watchers to compare the two.
Hi i bought acai berry & green tea caplets a week ago and at first found them great as i didnt feel hungry nor bloated but had plenty more energy which i needed in the gym but not at 3am in the morning due to me been unable to sleep at all!! I felt nausea, severe burning sensation in my stomach everytime i ate, chronic wind, migranes ect..I have lost nearly 3Ibs already this week & I would reccomend if you can handle all these symptoms and are desperate to loose afew pounds!.. All in all i feel people are’nt the same so these symptoms maybe just me..? anybody else with these symptoms.
I have been taking acai daily cleanse 1000mg for 3 weeks now.
My weight fluctuates between 9-10 st and I’m 5ft 7 so I’m happy with that, I got up to 10.9 after Xmas and needed a boost to get back to normal. I’ve lost 4 pounds but for me that is normal in this time period so I’m not so sure.
I haven’t been experiencing the excessive need to go to the toilet more but have experienced the cramping and feeling bloated. In fact one night I woke up with such bad cramping (wind) I thought it was possibly appendicitis!
I’m going to finish the pot but a bit dubious about the whole thing – different products suit different people – I have a history of bloating so I wouldn’t recommend to anyone with similar problems.
However, these are much better in the natural ingredients sense than most the slimming tablets you see on boots shelves.
i bought the Holland and Barrett acai and it is not helping me with weight loss but giving me energy to go walking with my twin baby girls. i have just purchased pure acai from a website called ultra 19.99 buy one get one free it is pure acai this will work. cant wait for it to arrive.
Been taking these for a couple of weeks now and my weight has come to 9.4. I feel lighter and have a very good night sleep. I have also started walking for 30 minutes 5 days a week so maybe that has helped too. Would recommend if you want to shed a few pounds.
Have started taking the Acai Berry with green tea, weighed myself and am 9.7, will weigh myself again next week and will see if i have lost anything. Want to cum down to 9 stones. Will let you know next week the outcome.
I’ve been taking the H&B acai berry with green tea for a few weeks now, i take 2 twice a day before meals, i lost 3lbs the first week without any dieting or excerise. The following 2 weeks i went away and i was eating like a pig the whole time BUT i still kept taking the pills twice daily, when i got back and weighed myself i was expecting to have put weight on but my weight was excatly the same i did’nt even put on a pound.
Plus before i took them i used to have digestion problems, food would sit in my stomach for hours which was uncomfortable but i don’t have that anymore.
I must say they do make you go the the toilet a little bit more
Nothing but terrible wind… you try taking a train ride or stay in an office… makes your belly bloat up and you feel aweful!
No, exercise, and clean diet is the winner, this is not the way.. and no noticable weight loss in 3 weeks. The caffeine extra int he day doesnt help either.
I HAVE BEEN USING THE REALY STRONG TABLETS FROM H&B, AROUND £26.00 FOR A BOTTLE. ONE IN THE MORNING AND ONE AT NIGHT. I ALSO GO TO THE GYM MOST DAYS FOR 1.5 TO 2.00 HRS DOING BOTH CARDIO WORK AND WEIGHTS. I HAVE NOT LOST A THING REALLY. i HAVE BEEN GOING TO THE GYM REGULARLY SINCE EARLY MARCH. LOST SOME INCHES HERE AND THERE AND WEIGHT MUST HAVE GONE DOWN BUT SINCE I STRATED TAKING THESE AND COLON CLEANSE I WOULD SAY THERE IS NOTHING SIGNIFICANT AL ALL. I DO GO TO THE TOILET QUITE A BIT BUT AGAIN NOTHING SIGNIFICANT WITH MY WEIGHT AND THAT IS DIS HEARTENING AS I HAVE A HEALTHY DIET TOO. I AM OVER 50 SO DON’T KNOW IF AGE HAS ANYTHING TO DO WITH IT, MY APPETITE IS JUST NOT WHAT IT USED TO BE.
i have just purchasedd these tablets of acai berry and green tea full strength 1500mg along with alo vera colon cleanse , i have been slimming for a while now at slimming world group for my wedding next year and after loosing my first stone iv come to a stand still .
i hered about these and been on them a week only and already my weight los this week alone has gone from a steady 1/2 a lb a week to 6 1/2 lb this week along with very smelly gas and sleeping like a baby of a night time
2nd day after tkin h&b tripple strength.. going to the toilet atleast twice a day, but i don’t feel as hungry as much i would feel before… hopefully this works for me
Just started taking the acai triple strength 1500mg capsules yesterday. One am and one pm. Instantly made me feel full and quite sicky but managed to eat a small dinner. Up in the night needing the loo which is not like me, and just 24hours into this i have the most terrible smelly gas! I am telling myself this is all good and i am getting rid of bad toxins, but am secretly dreading work tomorrow in case i need to make a sudden dash to the loo we took advantage of the buy one get one half price offer, so my friend also started taking these at the same time. We will compare notes and report back.
yea, i’ve brought the Acci berry with green tea 2 weeks ago, and in all honesty I feel it works but would be more effective if I exercised regularly. I too get fuller faster and toxic smells from farting all day long, but at least I haven’t put on weight. When I start to do any activity, I can feel my heart dumping out from my chest, which can be a bit scary but I’m sure the higher the heart rate, the more calories your burning, so this week I will exercise and see if there is a dramatic difference. I would also add that I am on the contraceptive inject which made it extra hard to loose weight, so whereas before my weight was climbing, now it’s slowly going down.
In my twenties I was around 9 stone, size 6 – 8. I had two kids, now 6 and 4 and settled at 10st 5 through diet and excersize where possible. I was happy with my new shape as I was still a healthy size 10. Ive just had my 3rd child who is now 7 months old. Apart from walking too and from school, I havent been able to excersize much or diet as the kids come first, and fitting it all in was a hassle. I plateud at 10 st 6 by trying to reduce my calorie intake. I decided to give the 500mg capsules a go as well as drinking green tea, and taking brewers yeast for the hair loss, common after pregnancy. 2 weeks on I am now 9st 13. I havent changed my diet..in fact my appetite seems to have increased, but I dont seem to crave sweets, chocs, crisps etc..more savoury food. I put the weight loss down to the tablets as I havent changed anything about my lifestyle apart from taking them. If I was too put my mind to it, and eat more healthy, I think the weight loss would be more dramatic. I dont want to loose much morethan a couple of pounds now, but really worth a go if you have more than a stone to shift
Ive been taking H&B Acai Berry and Aloe Colon Cleanse for about 2-3weeks now. I do feel better overall, but Im not sure if thats down to better diet and exercise. I can relate to other reviews that comment on feeling hungry and full at the same time!! I can only describe this as bloated, but summasing that food might settle the tum. I too feel I am going to the toilet less, as previously I didn’t struggle going to the toilet, but digestion was sometimes painful. I did stop taking colon cleanse for a couple of days because constipation was making me sluggish and like other reviewers I was experiencing painful wind. What a pickle! Keep taking them and perservere…or surrender and get on the treadmill more often!!! Not the most effective supplement ive ever tried….
well i thought id give these a go acai 1500mg & im taking them while following a healthy diet but not exercising as i do not have time looking after 4 kids.My first week & ive lost 1/2 stone so they seem to be working for me i find im sleeping better too.
hope they work for you as well as they are for me combined with a heathy diet
good luck all
People make me laugh its a review just telling people you just bought and aint even tried it yet is pointless put nicely and a waste of time for the reader and you! typing it. Ive been on acai berry for about 2 months now and i found i have more energy in the day sleep better at night feel more healthy not had so much as a common cold in 2 months. I didnt loose weight however it made my appetite skyrocket but still staying the same weight. But i defo think ANYONE that exercise an hour a day with a low calorie diet using acai will loose weight fast however i do recommend Acai Berry Pure. Anyone not loosing weight simply is just taking acai berry without exercise and diet and well never see great results so people bellow me get of the couch and stop waiting for miracles..
I Have just sent my other half to go and get the tripple strength acai tablets and Aloe vera colon cleanse, Im very open minded about this, Hopefully it will lose me a few pounds. I know that there are a few mixed reviews on here but like anything you cant expect tablets to do all he work, they are just an aid! you need to help them along with a healthy diet and regular excerise also people have said on here they have put on more weight the question I would love to ask them is are the training in a gym? if they are then they will weigh heavier I am a size 10-12 and 11.5 stone im only 5ft 5, now I have trained on and off for many years im not particulary fat just need to tone up, Im going to give these a go but instead of looking at how much weight I have lost I am going to measure my body, waist chest hips arms thighs and see if I lose the inches as thats what its all about looking good in your clothes and out of them, I will try and post my results back up here if I can, to let you know how I get on Good luck to all of you who try this x
I have been using the H&B acai powder for 3 weeks and colon cleanse for about 4 weeks (colon cleanse is not unpleasant at all but depnds on your diet beforehand I think). I have lost 5 pounds overall but it was mostly during the times I was doing ZUmba. I have CFS, IBS, food allergies and am hypothyroid and it has really helped me exercise and feel better and reduce symptoms. I sleep well and it’s the best I have felt in about 3 years as I couldn’t exercise before without being in bed for 48 hours afterwards (too much buid up of lactic acid). It might not be a high dose but the caffeine in the purer forms would probably aggravate my body. I am a very healthy person who eats about 950 calories a day and have felt hungier lately but 5 small meals a day and regular exercise (dance/gym whatever) will help lose the fat apparently. So for the vitamins and skin acai is flawless, I look great, don’t get spots but weight wise… I’m having to work on it.
I’ve JUST brought the triple strength acai berries from Holland and barret. im 13st. im drinking lots of green tea and trying to eat less ive read alot about these berries and i hope they will work but ive been reading that the halland and barret is just an extract and only the pure acai works but ahh well im giving it a ago if i get skinny i will inform y’all
ive been taking acai daily cleanse now 6 weeks the first month no change then suddenly after i eat i get bad stomach pains for just 30 seconds then i have the most awful shits its like an enema but i am losing a bit of weight but realy need to be close to a toilet because when it comes it comes fast does anyone else suffer like this.
I bought Acai with Green Tea from H@B as recommended by the Assistant I am too sure if it works I have positive thinking that it will work.
Secondly what is the difference Acai Berry Juice and Acai with Green Tea.
started taking h&b triple strength capsules and colax colon cleanser a week ago, seem to have a lot more energy, but no weight loss (yet), tho plenty of smelly gas (is this to do with the maltodextrin?) and Dont seem to be going to toilet any more than usual, infact probably less, which is NOT what i expected as the colax is meant to be cleaning me out!! disappointed to find out on here its a low ratio extract! think i will give it another week see how it goes, but it aint looking too great so far!! only bought from h&b as i didnt want to get ripped off online!
i have been taking acai berry green tea h&b, i have been going to the toilet alot and have had a lot of wind, i am eating the same but can’t say if i have lost any weight. the fact i am always on the toilet i would say it is a posibility…..
I just bought triple strength 1500mg acai from Holland Barret never tried it before , but i’am wondering is there any side affects of this pill? I’am so nervous for use it please let me know as soon an possible cause I wanted to try it.Thanks
can i buy 1000 m,g of pure acai berry capsuls from your shops. i have been taken been taking 4 5000 m,g but it got have got its got soya bean oil
gelatine glycerine colour [caramel] thickener [yellow beeswax] acai extract emulsifier [soya lecitnin] anti caking agent [sillicon dioxide] maltodexrin i got to addmit i have lost a little weight but they are not what i wanted i am exersising but i only lost 5 pounds in 5 weeks of taking them
I’ve started taking them with a diet called herbal life. I seem to be going to the toilet once a day. So far I sm happy with the product. Will have to see whet happens.
i bought the acai berry last week fri 3 days in and i get the best sleep ever!!i dont feel more energetic at all i feel more lazy and tired.i still eat the same.have not lost my apetite.spent 27 quid on the superstrength pills hopefuly they shal work!
i bought acai berry from your aberdare branch. i read on the label 500 m.g and it says 25 m.g of extract. i dont think its ioo percent acai berry as thats what i asked for. i did not read it untill my wife came home with it. i have been studying acai berrys for weeks. it states you need 100 percent for it to work better for me to lose weight.
Guess you get what you pay for. I’m a great Holland Barratt Fan but Holland And Barrett Acai Berry is pretty good value for what it is. If you want same value but higher strenght you’ve got to get online.
I bought this after reading the reviews and can only express my disappoint with the acai product. After more research I was drawn to articles that explained that H&B only do an extract and not a pure acai product. Such a shame I had to waste my cash on an inferior product.
I have just started taking ACAI BERRY (1500mg) from H&B and after just my first day on them, I’m experiencing abdominal pains and slight burning in the stomach. Perhaps this is an allergic reaction or should I wait to see if it settles into my system first?
i started off with acai and green tea 500mg and took this for four weeks, i didnt notice any difference to weight loss although i did feel very full and very hungary at the same time, it made my appetite excell which i wasnt expecting as i eat enough already!! i am now trying acai pure.. 1500mg its been 1 week, i have had spurts of energy but nothing dramatic, as i have just realised holland and barret are a reputable firm but the acai they sell isnt in its purest form it is an extract and doesnt have the orac reading on their label,i think all together this is a super food with many health benefits and thats just as it should stay labeled it is not a miracle for weight loss although it can aid weight loss when you follow a sensible diet and exercise as with most superfoods it just helps to sustain you in the nutrients it contains .i will be buying pure acai in future and not extract.
I actually put on weight while using this product. After reading up about acai berry on the web, i have noticed that extracts are not the best form of berry. Dont get me wrong iv ordered from H&B before and they do have some good products, but i would stay clear of their acai berry!
I bought triple strenght acai capsule + acai cleanser a week ago and I`ve been taking them as recommended. Since then I noticed I have got more energy and also my big appetite is gone! I still can eat but I am not starving between 2 meals and I am not snacking. With my “new” calmed-down mind I am much more sensible when it comes to choosing my meal.
Not sure if it makes you thinner – but hey, this is only my 1st week and with that energy I am now more active and I got back to the gym (!), so after all I am a happy customer.
I started taking Acai Berry Capsules 4 days ago. My intention wasnt to loose weight but to help my digestive system as i’m lucky if i go once every 7-10 days, i suffer from bad constipation and bloating. WELL, so far i’m going TWICE A DAY!!! I cannot remember every even going once a day! I would imagine if i’m going regularly then i will loose weight but its still early days – i will update again if any changes…
I have started using the the triple strength (1500) and its too early to say if its having an affect but I normally eat like a horse. Suffering with IBS too I have to be careful with what I eat so generally eat pretty healthy but lots of it. Second day in and I have eaten next to nothing…what I have eaten has filled me up quicker than normal and I still have bundles of energy. I am the sort of person that gets grumpy when I havent eaten and can get light headed if I skip a meal (which rarely happens)but I havent experienced any of that yet and feeling quite buzzy…watch this space. Plus with H&B its a name I can trust..if I dont lose weight I have gained knowledge..good enough for me.
Good service and fast delivery, shame i havent had any fast weight loss results, i have lost a bit of weight but not as much as i want! Its worth a try if you want to lose some wight but id recommend another supplier or product. Maybe one of the acai formulas mixed with other ingridients thats what im going to try!
The best Acai you can get is 500mg freeze dried acai berry! Check out some of the other reviews on here, and find 100% Pure Freeze dried Acai, it’s the only way to lock the anti-oxidants in.
The one thing you can say about Holland & Barrett is that you know you wont be scammed and you are dealing with a good company. The acai i bought from H&B i don’t think was the purest or best but at least i didn’t get scammed and i got my goods in 4 working days. Regarding results i only started today! If a miracle happens i will post it on here!
This is my first week of using this product. I have lost 2kg in the first week. I noticed however that if i took it before work outs, i was more energetic. I got a bit scared in the tteadmill when my heart rate got to 192 once. Anyway, i am keeping my fingers crossed. 2kg gone. week one
I have just bought the H&B acai with green tea. Been doing a lot of research…after the purchace. Have had two tablets today as I only started at lunch time. For anyone that doesnt understand the label the 20:1 ratio, it means that you are only getting 150mg per day..each capsule contains 1000mg…but…only 50mg is actually acai. the front of the bottle says 1500mg but that also includes the green tea. Also it does contain soya, and if you are on thyroid medication I believe this product would not be suitable..I am not a doctor though!! I am going to give this a go anyway..and will come back later to let anyone interested know how I get on. I do plan on getting the freeze dried acai next time.
Acai Berries, what can i say cheap product from H&B fast delivery to. Good value for any one wanting to try a cheap version of acai. Made me feel more energetic and awake, it is as people say an extract of acai, so i am keen one day to try some pure acai just i don’t have much dosh at the moment and i bought 3 pots of this …. :-/
Holland & Barret now have a bigger selection of acai berry products. But none of them are pure freeze dried. Think they have a few good ones to test out though, cheap and you can obviously trust the brand. Like a few other people have said i have read though on this site and learnt that pure freeze dried acai is the best. Also that 500mg is the highest purest strength!
These tablets gave me occasional stomach pains so i stopped taking them. But for the 2 weeks i did take them they gave me a slight energy boost. Fast delivery.
This is an extract! try some pure freeze dried acai berry! As Kurt said …
These are rubbish, didn’t do anything for me. Iv read more into it on this site and am going to try some pure freeze dried acai.
Seems to been wroking….Ive polished off one bottle and started on a second. A colleague of mine has lost 12Llbs (and he was def not fat before….) since taing them, but we’re both combining them with capsiplex so nt sure whicvh one is working?! Either way the weight has def dropped off….
This acai is not pure! its extract!
Hi Rondah, Lots of sites have Pure Acai Berry, i think health spark and Troo North are both pure acai take a look on the reviews and websites. I bought H&B acai but it didn’t work for me so im going ot buy Health spark acai next because it has the most reviews etc.
I am about to try the acai berry with green tea but am interested in buying a more pure form. Can anyone recommend where in the UK or Europe I can buy/order it that doesn’t involve expensive membership/’free trial’ offers?
Well said Tom – review of 7th February. I’ve just spoken with an advisor at one of the Holland & Barrett stores in the West Midlands and found her to be impartial but helpful. She shared with me many of her customers’ feed-backs about the various products and explained about the benefits of the different herbs contained in the various preparations.
Anyhow, tomorrow I’ll be making my purchases so will update you next week on my progress.
there now half price H&B
Have tried this (doesnt work) and pure acai berry, i highly recommend pure acai berry, the best iv ever used is Sambazon acai which i think is made in the states some where, but u can find it on UK websites. Expensive but works!
Cheap and works. May consider trying one of the stronger products wehn i get paid.
I have just purchased this from their website a few days ago. I contacted customer services askign for more info and they were very quick to help. I’ve tried som of the green tea suppliments and thought I’d have a try of this to see how it goes.
hiiya iv heard alot of good and bad results about these acai pills and am very tempted to buy it not 2 sure if itl work but sur ders a first time for everything lol give ya an update in a few weeks xx
started taking the acai berry and aloe vera colona week ago, havent lost any weight yet but dont eat as much as i did, as i suffer from ibs i used to feel lucky if i went to the toilet 2 times weekly since taking these i have been every day a little pain but nothing extreme and i feel a lot healthier, did consider the ones on the net until i read the small print and realised they were a pure rip off, will update next week when hopefully ive lost some weight
Hey everyone, I started using the Acai 1500 and Aloe Vera Colon Cleanse two months ago and to be honest I have very mixed results! To start with the colon cleanse I found is quite effective! I found that it has made me feel a lot less constipated and feel more relaxed inside. Secondly my diet used to be a normal yoghurt in the morning, sandwich at dinner and for tea something like jacket potato or a fresh fish and I would be full! Now its totally different after taking the acai berry, I CANT STOP EATING!!! and it isnt healthy either!!! I wake up and have a yoghurt but then around 10-11 I’ll eat biscuits or nutri grain bars, then at dinner have a sandwich, crisps, chocolate! then in afternoon a SAUSAGE ROLL!!! and have my tea and top it off with a Cadbury’s Ice Lolly! WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON! I thought they helped you lose weight not PUT IT ON! I do Thai Boxing Monday and Wednesday with Gym circuit training on a thursday and saturday which at the moment I have no choice but to do otherwise I cant shake this weight! I am 6ft and was a nice 12.11 – 13.00 Im now 13.9 OUCH! (I very much doubt this is muscle)! I will continue to use the aloe vera as I find it to be effective but I’ve been off acai for about 4 weeks and Im gradually getting back to eating right again!! Remember dont take all of what Ive said to be true for you because we all have different results and it may not be to do with the acai berry but personally I think it affected me, I will recommend if it works for you to try this because I do know people who say it works for them.
Well I’ve been taking it for about 3weeks and there’s no difference. I don’t feel more/less active and I haven’t lost any weight, so I’m going to stop taking them.
about 3 weeks ago i had bought the acai berry juice from holland and barrate, after taking the acai juice for 4 to 5 days i had experienced terreble side effects, serious skin burns,severe head aches, terreble rapid weight loss, heart pumping far too fast, skin rash itchness, sweating constantly,dry mouth,throat chess,i cant even have tea or coffe oe anything with caffene because it aggravates and triggers off the allergic reaction caused from acai berry juice. my terreble experience from the acai juice its really health threatning and my advice to any one who wants to try the acai berry juice,is not to buy it or try it at all because its a real health threat, i think some acais also contains benzyn in it which is spossed to speed the process of burning and loosing rapid weight. my life has become nightmare so to any one who wants to try this acai juice or any other similar juices dont do it, its a rip off, its money trap it has not proved anything to help loose safe weight,itd fake advertisment god only knows what the chemical ingredients are in the acai juice, they dont get checked by the health searches to know whats exactly in the acai juice, the best way is to loose weight is to do exercise and have a appropriate safe diet. its been 2 weeks and my health has not healed. and my dr.s are concerned because it has seriously damaged my health.

Hi, yes another yo yo dieter to add to the kist – I have triedthe lot and have just purchased my secondon lot of acai and colon cleanse – between Nov and Dec I lost 10lbs and then went on to lose 5lbs more HOWEVER I do not believe from the products alone, it was more my sister saying just eat three times a day, portion control, between 1500 to 1800 cals a day is plenty and watch the ft content – I got some good eduction from the channel 4 programme drop dress size in two weeks.so come on guys and girls .me included. stop atuffing, educate yourselves and PORTION CONTROL all week and maybe once or twic in the month go out and enjoy without feeling guilty…good luck…just off to take my colon cleanse now….Teresaxxx
I’ve just bought Acai (500mg, 120 capsules) and Acai daily cleanse (90 capsules) from Holland & Barret today. It was about £23 with their offer. It says I should take 1/2 capsules 3 times a day. I’ll see how it goes and post any changes within a week or so.

<3 <3 <3
I bought Holland & Barrett Acai 1500mg. Took 1 a day in the morning and then took one aloe vera colon cleansing tablet in the evening. I didnt stick to any diet (not proud of that)and still managed to loose 7lbs in the first week of taking them.
Will def continue taking them.
I too bought triple strnth from holland&barrett, took them for a week , in which i was not hungry but the bloating is unbareable, and the pills have soya in them which Im not supposed to take as I take Thyroxine, so like others I feel a Dupe going on here,and maybe a money spin-off, I will see if I can get some money back for my 2nd unopended jar.
Maria, very disappointed customer
i have not taken acai berry as of yet but i intend on buying some from h&b tomorrow. i have read these comments and done quite alot of research. firstly acai berry if full of fat but it does help weight loss, and it is only a supplement such as drinking protein shakes. IT IS NOT A MAGIC PILL that burns off fat. you actualy have to go about a heathy diet and regular exercise in order for it to work properly. so if this product hasnt worked for you its because your using it wrong. your body should naturaly loose weight without this berry if you diet and exercise all it does is HELP!!! so stop making excuses and blaming the product and use it properly
I’m in two minds about this, strted doing the double diet but with cho yung tea and colon cleanse as i got free trials and fortunately did read the t&c’s so cancelled both orders b4 thcould charg me loads!! I then heard about the acai berry so bought that today from H&B but Im not worried cz a few ppl have said it works for them and H&B willstill give arefund if youre not 100% satisfied. All credible companies will so if youre not happy, take em back!!! Anyway ve been ding slim fast and colon cleanse for 2 weeks, Im not hungry, havent even had th snacks in between and Iv lost half a stone so Im gonna stick with that for now!!
I bought some of these a while back. I had a modicom of success with them. I lost a few pounds but then just added it again after a month. I went through 2 bottles worth then stopped.
I felt I was just jumping on the bandwagon and wasn’t actually sure what I was taking. I know Holland & Barrett are a reliable company but in the past I’ve felt that they don’t necessairly go for the highest quality products. It was with these thoughts that I started to investigate acai berries a lot more.
I’ve read through the reviews above and there seems to be a lot of people who are unsure what’s in these or the actual quality. I wrote a detailed review which explains what’s in them and the actual quality. The comments about feeling bloated and wind should be a warning sign. This is the effect of maltodextrin (‘the king of farts’ chemical). Wind is not a side-affect of acai berries. Maltodextrin is also found in weight gain products!
I was suggested to buy the holland and barrett’s acai juice over the capsules. I was told by the employees of H&B that the juice is always better than the capsules.
I have been using it for 3 months, taking a shot or two a day. It has helped me to lose some fat around my thighs I’ve been dying to get rid of.
Surely there is enough reviews of people buying the capsules and getting bowel discomfort?
Why not try the juice!?
ps. it won’t work if you’re a couch potato! >:(
Think ya all silly. You don’t want high strength anything as it will upset u and cause tummy troubles. A low dose like H&Bs is a good place to start to keep an eye on changes. In two days i notice i’m more energetic and finding it much easier to get out of bed in morning and fall asleep at night. Everyone has this got to take four of them attitude to see if it works like you instantly wana loose 6lbs. When you try a new food that your not sure if ya guna like ya dont wolf it down do ya?? you try it wearily in case you dont like the taste, so do the same with these products for your body. If you got tummy upsets etc its ya own fault.
HealthSpark Acai Berry is reckoned to be the number one brand in the UK for Acai Berry (source: HitWise). It’s Acai Berry is genuine pure Brazilian freeze-dried, unlike some ‘extracts’, it contains nothing but pure Acai.
Holland And Barrett Acai Berry is cheap, but it’s the lowest extract ratio reviewed so far (20:1). Steer clear.
I wasted money on buying Accai berrys from holland and Barrat i even bought the Coleen clenser.. it is crap… dont waste money and its got a liltle accai and i have 5 a day but dont know i cant see any wait that i lost
Bought H & B 1500 mg capsules and stuck to 1 in the morning with a low fat probiotic yoghurt, a light lunch and 1 with a decent meal in the early evening and in just over a week I went from 15st 8 3/4lb to 14st 11lb. As to how much of that is down to the product is debatable. I cut out the snacking, gotta be a major factor.lol but didn’t do any exercise. The weight loss seems to have stopped now though. Gonna try the Health Spark brand and see how it goes as it seems to have the best rating.
I bought ACA1 500MG today and got a second half price. I thought it was pure Acai. Now I am really disapointed after readind all the reviews. If I had not opened and taken my first two tablets this evening I would have taken them back for a refund. It pays to read the ingredients before buying.
Hi, I suffer from an underactive thyroid as I had my thyroid gland removed a year ago. Since I have piled on weight due to my metabolism slowing down a lot, can anyone tell me if it is safe for me to take the acai berry capsules to help me lose weight
I bought the Holland & Barrett Acai Berry and then seen this on the label:
Acai Extract 3,000mg
(Euterpe oleracea) (fruit)
(from 150mg of a 20:1 extract)
Its an extract and not pure like other Acai Suppliers. I suggest trying to find a pure acai berry supplier.
myself & my husband have been taking the acai triple strength berry & acai daily cleanse for 1 week now. We have both not been so hungry but have noticed we have got bloated stomachs.I myself have had a few twinges in my lower abdomen. Dont know if this is anything to do with these pills, all i know is that i have a bloated stomach which has never happened before. We got ours from H&B so lets watch this space folks.
I had the pill implant in jan 2009 and had it removed in august 2009 after piling on a stone and half in weight even though my eating habits etc didnt alter and since ive tried alsorts to shift my ballooned belly i was only goin to the loo 3 times a week if i was lucky so i joined a gym at £360 a year and after 3 month no joy not even a lb shed just solid calve muscles so i cancelled that debt so on 1st jan i started h&b tripple strength acai berry i havent been weighed yet waiting til the 31st jan im takin 2 tablets a day not changed my diet and im going to the loo at least once a day my jeans are becoming loose and theres a flat tummy on the horizon yipee
i am a sufferer of PCO, ive tried alsorts, i tend to loose the first 4-6lbs then yo-yo, i have joined a new gym that is opening this month and looking forward to attending. i have also been reading about this magic mixture, ive fallen into these traps before, but im still intrigued to know if these really do help. i suppose its all on the individual taking them as our bodies all work differently and our life styles differ too.
any help or tips would be greatly welcome.
I feel bloated as soon as I have taken 2 capsules of 50mgs. I did not feel hungry for 24 hours. Lost 1 lbs within a week. Think to lose weight slowly is the best remedy.
Do not try the free tablets from the net. There is a catch. Charge is £72 for membership and not refundable if not cancelled within 14 days.
At least if you buy from H&B, they are trusted retailers.
I bought the Acai Berry from H&B and the Aloe Colon Cleanser (took advantage of the buy one get the second half price offer a little while ago). They have done nothing for me so i wouldn’t waste your money. I took them religiously aswell (2 tablets 3 times a day) I’ve been reading about the Maqui berries. They are apparently more powerful then Acai?
hi i want to get the acai berry and the colon clenser from H&B. im thinking about getting them tomorrow. which colon clenser should i get, there are so manny. which is the best one.
I wanted to start adding the Acia berry to my diet, this was after reading all the good news and fantastick results that had have been posted. after reading this i thought about how ‘sounds to good to be true’ was creeping in to my head, so i look in to how safe, side affectS ect.
HERE ARE SOME OF THE FINDINGS BELOW…..
Is Acia safe??….
To a degree they are. The only disputable factor about this supplement is the fact that a number of recent studies have found that all Acai’s medical claims are contradictory and wrong.
Take for example their statement that the anti-oxidants in Acai Berry can help reduce aging, prevent cancer and lower heart problems. In studies done by the University College of London, the John Hopkins School of Medicine and Copenhagen researchers, every one of these claims has been found to be false and in truth can cause the opposite effect.
* University College of London: found there was no proof that anti-oxidants prevented aging
* John Hopkins school of Medicine: 4% of subjects who took high dosages of Vitamin E were at a higher risk of dying, whilst 13% had an increased chance of experiencing heart failure.
* Copenhagen Researchers: 6% of subjects who took high dosages of Vitamin A, C and E were found to be at a higher risk of developing colon, liver and pancreatic cancer.
With statistics like these it is hard to trust this supplement. Especially when all its possible health problems are directly comparable to its benefits. They all seem to tell the opposite story.
So there it is, now i have to say i am now medial person or scientist, but i would say to research what you are putting in to your body.

I would like to loose a bit of weight before Chrismas.

Cheap and cheerful will let you know if it works. Bought it from the local H&B in Brighton.
Iv lost 6 pounds in a month from just taking these acai tablets, im going to try some stronger ones and see if i can lose more, if u want to test out a cheap product to see if it works id try these but if you want to lose weight quicker id get a higher strength like i am going to do. Acai definitely works on me.
hi just read about acai berry and xtreme acai on a yank site saying it will help you get ripped in 4 weeks by working out, it even offers a free trial. does anyone know if there is any truth in this. im a skinny bloke and just started the gym to gain weight and increase muscle. any help will do
just bought h&b 500mg acai berry tablets(taking 2 in morning) and aloe vera colax colon cleanse(taking one before bed) early days at mo but defo made me feel alot more energetic taking the acai tablets,theres alot of mixed reviews on here though,dont know what to make of it all, anyone in the same boat and wanting to talk about it feel free to say allo firstname.lastname@example.org is this genuine or not??????
I bought H&B triple strength (1500) 5days ago, after having a baby 7mths ago i gained weight and finding it hard to come off so thought with the ads on this prouduct i would give acai a go, and to be honest i find my appetite has decreased since trying them im not as hungry as i was before taking them,im eating less and finding im fuller quicker which is great so fingers crossed this is the way to go to help me loose weight and have energy… as having a baby you need lots of energy………
thought i bought acai berry,same as my freinds but fountd out the assistant gave me acai daily cleanse&aloe vera colon cleanse,should it have been acai berry?
im thinking of taking acai berry as im not long after having a baby. i feel like i have put on weight now than i did when i was pregnant. being a single mum i dnt find time for the gym and working is not helping well that and the fact i hate the gym. i go swimming once a week i dont eat chocolate or crisps and the only sweets i eat are cola bottles. but i seem to be getting heavier. so i was doing some research and keep coming across acai berry. the ones online are so expensive so isit worth paying the extra money or are these ones just the same? and how many and how often do you take them and the cleanse? would love to know x
i started taking holland and barrett triple strenth(1500mg) capsules 8 days ago, one a night with my evening meal and 1 aloe vera colon cleanse at bedtime, thinking i would get great results as i have suffered from constipation practically all my life and have taken alot of laxatives over the years. i thought this would put an end to the laxitives, but the last few days i have had dreadful headaches, palpitations and am very constipated, dont know whether to continue taking them, they did cost me alot of money, maybe you have to wait a while before they get into the system, i woudl love to know
Just bought the triple action acai berry. Never tried it before but heard of it on the website. American sites looked like scam so went to H & B before I had read all the other reviews. Will keep you posted – taking this instead of multi vitamins.
I have just taken my first dose of H&B Tripple strength accai and Aloe Colon cleanse. Watch this space!!!!
I have just started taking the acai and the aloe vera colon cleanse and already in two days i feel healthier. i tend to have tummy porblems and dont go the loo much but this has helped me.. not sure about the weigh loss yet.. will see what happens…
Well, I got my accai berry capsules(500mg) 6 days ago. 2 hours after I took my first 2 capsules my tummy started rumbling, but wasn’t painful, then I started farting loads of times. I still took my next 2 capsules with my dinner, same farting and going to the loo for stools. But i think this is the way the weight comes off because my energy has rocketed high and i feel a little bit lighter. I’ll updated you again a week later.
ok its only the day after buying the Acai juice and i have been taking it for less then 24 hrs so i cant comment on weight loss at the moment But what i can say is i already feel full of energy and woke up with a spring in my step, is this down to the juice ??? i think so so i have high hopes for this product i feel great a lot better then i have for a while I took this product just after collecting it from the shop and then again before my afternoon meal and then just before i went to bed but with this one i took an H&B aloe vera colon clenser tablet. and this morning i took another dose before i ate breakfast.
i havent tried the H&B Acai berry capsuals but i have been told to use the H&B juice and when i have finished writing this i am on my way to get it i intend to take this with each meal and also change my tea choice to green tea i am already following a very good diet that i have used before with very good results but i would like the weight to come off a little quicker this time (yes i am a yo yo dieter) but want to break this cycle and hope the Acai juice will help me to do this i will try the juice for 2 weeks and then return and tell you what i think guess a work in progress
I’m not too sure of strength and purity and all that but i took these pills and a week after buying them from H&B i’ve noticed my eating habits has dramatically increased. I use to eat one to two meals a day normally ill feel stuffed for hours but after taking acai berry im hungry again within 2 hours of eating, not to mention I havent put on any weight but im losing it, very slowly though lol (my girlfriend hasnt taken it but she said my eating has gone through the roof and I havent even put on half an inch on my waist). I had to research this and I think its because it has increased my metabolism dramatically. I hear people saying its not as strong as the other brands, well i wonder what miracles a stronger one can do for me. To be honest though I’m happy with holland and barretts brand. It’s cheap and it’s a good way to see if acai berry can work for you.
I had bought the H&B Acai berry and set out to take them, 2 after each meal, I also started taking the H&B Aloe vera colon cleanse. Thinking I was doing something right to my body within a few days I was constipated, bloated, alot of gas and had immense stomach pains. When I did go my stools were incredibly hard, before I took them I was quite regular and taking other vitamin supplements. Have stopped using them now and am hoping my body goes back to normal, would not recommend
I have told that H&B products aren’t that great, they normally contain low strenght ingrediants!
Hi Jessica Acai berry is not recommended for any one under the age of 18, at your age id suggest exercise and healthy dieting. Talk to your parents see what they recommend.
i am 15 and want to try acai berry. ive tried loads of other diet pills but i want more of an affect shall i buy it or is it a waste of money.
Bought these from a H&B store. Didn’t do anything for me. Wouldn’t recommend them. Id try find pure acai berry capsules. Not extract ratio, im not to sure what it means but basically there isn’t much acai in the capsule.
Has anyone tried Acai Berry Capsules from Holland and Barrett? Right, loadsa people r going on about Acai berri and how it helps to lose weight. But has anyone tried the capsules from Holland and Barrett and are they effective? Please let me know cos i wana try it. Many thanx…
