DonB,

This product we take has changed my life and the lives of the friends and relatives that I have introduced to this Acai Juice.

There is a lot of misinformation out there on acai as its unregulated. The acai berry is similar in make up to a cherry. It has skin, pulp and pit or seed. The seed has no value whatsoever. There are companies that take the discarded seeds, grind them up and sell them as 100% acai. Its legal and it is 100% acai, however it has no value. The only certified acai so far is made by Eurobotanicals. If the product you see is not certified by Brunswick labs you cannot be sure what you are buying. Brunswick labs owns the patent to ORAC testing and they are the only ones who can certify. If the company doesnt want their product tested and verified, they have something to hide. It may be a good product, but if they fail to get it certified, something is probably wrong. Look for the Brunswick logo and its ORAC value.

I talk to the heath store and asked them if this was the real acai juice. They tell me that it is and pointed me to the website
http://www.earthsbounty.com/acai_juice.htm
Suggested use is 1-3 fl.oz.,but it doesn't tell me what time of the day is best to take it or do I need to take it before,during or after a meal.

Thanks in advance for your input.

DonB, I cannot tell you if earths bounty acai is what it says it is but I can tell you two things. It costs more than what I am taking and they dont talk about its ORAC score and is definitely not ORAC certified. Only Brunswick labs can certify ORAC score, it isnt costly for the company but if your product isnt certified there is no way to be sure what it is, its unregulated. To date, the only certified acai comes from www.ebacai.com

I can truly say this product is having a positive affect on my life. I can also say I have not made one red cent selling this stuff. If my friends want I give it to them at my cost. As a general rule people will buy product from people they respect and trust. So if an individual meets those standards I am going to give them the benefit of the doubt.

Indicating differences between products is comparative shopping not calling something else crap. AJ is no different than getting opinions on bats or balls.

Ladies & Gentlemen....please check out this website for a very good acai product - www.amazonthunder.com
I have been taking the Amazon Thunder Acai Pulp Puree for four months now. I drink two 1 oz servings per day. I have noticed several benefits....I sleep much better at night...I have more energy....I'm very regular now...my arthritis pain has virtually disappeared.....I'm Type 2 diabetic and my blood sugar aggregate level has dropped 10 points since I began drinking this product. It actually tastes good and is USDA certified and Union Orthodox Kosher certified. It contains 3300 ORAC units per 1 oz serving. Don't get me wrong...I'm not a representative of Amazon Thunder nor am I a distributor of this product. I just want to add my two cents to the discussion about available Acai Berry products and say that this product has worked for me.

Please do not think I am in any way dissing any other product. There are many good products out there and like wise there are some poor products out there. I have done extensive research and have found that www.ebacai.com is the very best I can find. After reading about Amazon Thunder I have only one basic question. Why doesnt Amazon Thunder certify their products ORAC score. They make mention of the acai berry having a high ORAC score and make mention of the scientist at Brunswick labs but they do not list their score, just acai score in general. To my knowledge only www.ebacai.com has independently certified acai. I know of some who have had their product tested but not certified. Certification is an on going process done by the patented Brunswick labs. Acai is for real and it works and there are other good products out there. Amazon Thunder may be an excellent product, I hope so, its also in the price range where it should be. Its only slightly more expensive than www.ebacai.com

Just to add my 2 cents worth after reading the acai posts. Check out www.monavie.com I have been on this product for 3 years and the results are amazing. It is the main reason I am still playing softball. Not only joint pain relief but many other health benefits. I know many athletes that are on MonaVie. Like some of the other products it is not sold in stores. Mona Vie has certified ORAC values and has been approved by WADA (World Anti Doping Agency) and is used by many professional and olympic athletes and teams. It has been Kosher certified, also. If you have any questions you and contact me at kcaj13@aol.com

Blackjack13, Monavie is a great product and I'm happy to hear your results. Acai is truly the worlds most perfect food and I now there are many other Monavie customers very happy with the product. However, Monavie's ORAC scores are not certified, They claim its 1,300 per ounce and do not send samples for testing. Only Brunswick labs can certify ORAC scores as they have the patent. Monavie does not send samples to be tested and certified. Monavie wants its formula to be secret and avoids the test. That does not make it a poor product, its just not certified. Monavie is one of the most successful MLM's in history and their marketing is absolutely the best, its a bit expensive but worth the money.

Jim16, thanks for the email. MonaVie may not be directly certified by Brunswick but a researcher named Kimberly Day had MonaVie tested by Brunswick and the ORAC value of MonaVie was 23,323 per bottle. All you have to know is that Mona Vie has the patent on the flash freezing process of the acai berry that retains over 90% of the nutritional value. The nutritional value of the acai is very well documented. I don't really get into all the hype but I have worked in toxicology (affects of compounds on the body) research for 30 years and I have done my homework on MonaVie and the company can back up all the claims it makes. It works for me and I would not recommend a product to others that I did not believe in. In my opinion (I know) MonaVie is the best nutrition beverage available.

I do not know but I do know Jim... if your intent has been to inform us as to the many health benefits of Acia, you can rest easy now because we can read.
On the other hand, if you are 'selling a product', you're going about it all wrong... 'a spoon full of sugar will catch more flies than a gallon of vinegar'.
Now I don't know you well enough to determine what your goal might be but you do sound a bit like 'Dr Hook's Medicine Show' to me.
You have given us the information that we need to make an informed decision. Now back off and let it become 'our idea'... no one likes to be beat over the head.

Jim, on April 10th you stated that Euro-Botanicals, Inc. produces THE ONLY ACAI product certified by Brunswick labs. Are you certain of this? Someone told me that Sambazon Acai is also certified by Brunswick. Is my information incorrect?
While acai grows most freely in the Uppper and Lower Amazon regions that isn't necessarily where it is refined. Where is your product refined?
Is sodium benzoate one of its active ingredients?
You seem to know an awful lot about your product and you would likely know the answers to these questions.
#6, I don't mean to confine these questions to Jim so feel free to join in if you know the answers.

Q: What certifications come with Sambazon Acai?
A: Sambazon products are USDA certified organic, Orthodox Union certified Kosher and we are a member of the Fair Trade Federation.

No word anywhere on their website about being certified by Brunswick Labs.

Mike, I will research this further... it is my understanding that Sambazon was certified on May 21, 2008... and that there are several others that have been certified by Brunswick.
However, the fact that Sambazon is USDA approved means quite a bit. Is the same true for Euro-Botanical? What is their web site?
The ORAC certification, as you probably know, lends itself to the antioxidant properties of a drug or food supplement. It does not address its other properties such as its anti-inflamatory qualities... those are different tests altogether. It is this element (anti-inflam) that addresses joint fluid, etc.
Are you aware of how many Acai products there are in the market place today? I'm told that there are over 1,000.

No, I really have no connection with them whatsoever. In fact, your former office (off Calle Del Cerro) is closer to them than I am. As you know, RSC is a very large commerical/industrial area.
I do have an occasional commercial acai smoothie (Pipes Cafe), in lieu of lunch, and the base product happens to be Sambazon. I don't sell Sambazon or buy it in any other form. Since I've been doing so (2 months), I have dropped a few Toledos and this is the only thing that I'm doing differently so I have attributed the weight loss to acai.
In addition, I use a different product (acai juice) that I bought on line from Lucky Vitamins and have been swigging it down twice per day... tasty. It's too early to tell if I'm receiving benefits from it... only started with it 10 days ago. However, I did toss out my Viagra... not because acai has so many benefits but rather because I've lost interest in sex... just kidding.

I believe Sambazon sells their products through the common distribution system and the end users are cafes, resturants, etc. There is also a Mexican resturant on the south end of town that offers Sambazon smoothies... I know this because they both have posted Sambazon signs. Were they to switch to a different product it would make no difference to me.
According to information that was sent to me (Mike, you were copied on it)Sambazon does indeed have ORAC certification from Brunswick Labs. Also, there are several others as well. The list only includes those companies that allow their ORAC results to be published.
Again, ORAC testing is not the 'end all, be all' measure of acai. There is also its anti-inflam values.
My point in bringing this to light was to let the readers here know that Euro-Botanicals isn't the only ORAC certified producer.
Having stated all of this, it seems to me that the real issue is whether someone uses acai or not... not that they use any one specific product. The fact that there are web site or MB testimonials is great but it doesn't mean that they wouldn't get similar results from another acai product. After all, there are over 1,000 to choose from.
I know that Ron Parnell felt really strongly about Monavie. Others have expressed the same view. Different strokes for different folks... and I have no financial ax to grind on this topic.

KOP:
I'm not sure which product you mean when you say 'this stuff' (mangosteen or acai)but, given your orthopedic history, I doubt that either would hurt you. However, I have already exceeded my limits of expertise.
Having had several athroscopic surgeries of my own, I prefer to take natural anti-inflams rather than synthetic ones such as Mobic. I do occasionally take the latter when my pain is acute.
I haven't been using acai long enough to offer you much insight as it relates to joint relief. I do believe that I have lost a little weight because of it... this does have its indirect benefits with joint relief.
You can go directly to the Brunswick Labs web site and learn a lot of stuff about acai, antioxidants, anti-inflams, mangosteen, scientific method, etc. www.brunswicklabs.com

Bob, I've been to Oklahoma playing ball and havent been on here for a while. I see some great comments from you. I cannot with certaincy say that www.ebacai.com has the only certified acai as Brunswick labs does not endorse or list its certified customers. There may be one out there that I havent found or for that matter that EB hasnt found either. However, the word tested and certified are two different categories. Certified means that the company REGULARLY sends in its product for Brunswick to test and therefore is certified. I still have yet to find another ACAI that is certified. There are other products certified, not acai and acai's that claim to have been tested but not cetified. I've been told that because of these uses of semantics that Bunswick is close to a decision to publish their list of certifications.
I'm sure there are other acai products that are very good but we cannot be sure of their makeup because of no certification.
Also, USDA approved means basicly that the facility making the product is clean, and in no way means its been tested for any of its makeup.
There are so many misleading statements made by unregulated companies that we must beware as buyers. I know my acai is a great product, I've taken it, relied on its certification and had MIRACULOUS results. My closest friends know my experiences and I would never share all of them here, it would lead to senior players not believing my health gains, too numerous and just not believable, true but hard to believe.
I would quickly back off of the certification issue if someone could find another acai that is certified, so far I havent seen one and hope that Brunswick will soon release the information.

Jim, your miraculous results are good to hear but I've heard the same from folks that use other acai products.
I'm surprised at your obsession with the ORAC numbers since it is but one measure of the 'healing powers' of acai. If you take the time to read more of the information contained on the Brunswick Labs web site (such as the blurbs about anti-inflam) you will understand the comprehensive picture.
However, just to be clear, if I produce evidence that shows that other acai products are certified, you will 'quickly back off the certification issue'. To me this is bit like judging a car on its suspension and ignoring the rest. So, am I correct in my assumption about the certification proof?

There are many factors effecting the ORAC teasting as I understand. One might want to review both medical and scientific research posted on PubMed.com and compare Acai with Mangosteen / Xanthones.

You are absolutely correct... if you're seeking strong antioxidant benefits, go on the very web site touted by Jim16, Brunswicklabs.com
On the home page look and near the center bottom find the horizontal bar with the rotating phrases. Click on it and then look through the companies and products. The aqau-colored circular seal indicates that it has been tested and certified by Brunswick (you'll only see this when you get to a specific product). It also states which property was the basis of the testing, ORAC or otherwise. You can then click on the link on the right hand side and see for yourself.
Some of the products might not be acai, some are. But if it's high ORAC value you're chasing, there is a large number of choices. Not all companies want their products linked to the lab...
After following the link, you can also learn the active ingredients in that particular product.
As an example, find the MXI menu of products and pick 'XOCAI' and follow through with it.
It is there for anyone that really WANTS to find it.

Bob, As I posted earlier Brunswick labs said that they were going to begin to list their customers and now they have done it. I've spent about 2 hours on their website and have examined all of the companies listed. You are correct when you say that some companies do not want to be listed. I have done my best to look at each product and most do not want to list their scores. Of those that chose to show their scores www.ebacai.com had the highest score by quite a margin. The one you listed is only a fraction of EB's. Most listed arent acai. Brunswick certifies "what it says on the bottle, is in the bottle". The products listed do not score nearly as high as EB's acai. Bob, Thanks for finding this and again, if you find an acai certified product that beats ours I will "back down". EB is actually working right now to get an even higher score. The big sellers are not close to EB's but some are still good products. Anti Oxidents in any form will will help senior players, so if you are taking any certified anti oxident product, keep it up.

Jim,
You made a statement that only 'your product' was certified. I replied to this stating that, based upon the information that I had, there are other companies that have been certified. Now you want to come back and say that it has to be an 'acai product'. Have you looked at the list of ingredients in your own product?
Try looking through those other products listed and see for yourself. Start with Novelle and MXI.
Here is my primary point... there are a whole bunch of other fish in the same sea...
Here are a couple more facts... high ORAC value, which you use as the 'be all, end all' measure, can be obtained from lots of different fruit extracts... Brunswick Labs, which you frequently quote, has the data that addresses all of these points.
The ORAC testing is done in such a way as to compare the product's results against vitamin E... there are 6 different radicals that antioxidants need to mitigate in order to really be considered effective rahter than potentially effective. Initially, Brunswick only tested against 2 of them (peroxyl and hydroxyl). BL is currently adding to this but until all 6 are incorporated into their tests, it's hard to say how effective a product will be when used by a human being. This info is available if you want it.
There are other measures of acai that have zero to do with ORAC and are very important. Yet you never acknowledge any of them.
You need to first understand that an ORAC value is essentially a quantitative way to state the 'potential' of any product to work in person's body the way it was shown to work in a lab. Know this, the ORAC testing is done 'in vitro'... i.e. outside the body. There is no guarantee that it performs the same 'in vivo' (inside the body). But let's assume that it does and let's further assume that all of the non-ORAC features/properties are irrelevant. There are still products out there with 'high 3,000' ORAC numbers.
Jim, you initially said that only EB has been certified by Brunswick... then you said that if someone could prove that there were others, you'd 'back off'... now you're saying that if someone can prove that there are other certified companies AND that their ORAC score is higher than EB's, you'll back off. I'm not doing any further research until you actually do answer one of my questions, contrary to what # 6 stated and which you have failed to do thus far. The questions are on this thread... such as the sodium benzoate thing and the other active ingredients of your product.
You can learn an awful lot from the Brunswisk Lab web site if you use it with an open mind.
This thread began with DonB asking about information supporting/detracting a 100% acai juice that he found at a nearby health food store. Is your product anywhere near a 100% acai juice.

the wood,
Since you brought up #6, I will give you my input on your above message.If you go back and look what I told DonB, it says this is not the Acai Juice that we take, AND IT'S NOT ! I said the Acai Juice WE TAKE CAN'T BE BOUGHT IN H.E.B., HEALTH STORES OR ANY WHERE ELSE EXCEPT FROM ONE OF US OR THE WEB SITE THAT JIM HAS LISTED ON HERE COUNTLESS TIMES.AS I HAVE STATED IT HAS CHANGED MY LIFE, MY FRIENDS LIVES AND MY RELATIVES LIVES. SO THE BOTTOM LINE FROM FROM IS, I BELIEVE IN IT, I TAKE IT AND I SHARE MY RESULTS TO THOSE WHO ASK. IT'S A GREAT PRODUCT AND I AM ON IT FOR LIFE.YOU CAN KEEP ON DOING ALL THE RESEARCH YOU WANT, FOR ME AND A LOT MORE PEOPLE IT WORKS AND WE WILL CONTINUE TAKING IT. WORKS !!!

I brought you up because YOU are the one that stated that Jim16 had answered my questions. He has not.
I did the research because Jim asked me to show him that there are other certified companies, etc. I have done so.
If it works for you, that's great. If you continue taking it, that's fine, too. The thing is, #6, I could care less what YOU do. But the other people on this MB deserve to know the truth about acai in general and ORAC in particular.
Neither you or Jim have answered any of the tough questions about your product. I never figured that you could or would but I did believe that Jim could... most notably, what % of your product is acai? To quote you, # 6, from April 14 'LET ME SPEAK SLOWLY SO THAT YOU CAN UNDERSTAND IT'... WHAT IS THE ACAI CONTENT IN YOUR PRODUCT? Before you get too flustered and start spitting on yourself, recognize that this refers to Jim's point of April 21 'what it says on the bottle, is in the bottle'.

I can't believe I am having this conversation. Yes, There are lot of other fish in the sea, but if you want Tuna why buy catfish.
Both products you mention, MXI and Novelle are not Acai. MXI is chocolate. Now I am not dissing chocolate, it may really be healthy but its not acai and they dont talk about its ORAC score. Novelle is also not chocolate nor is it acai. Acai has other properties not related to its ORAC score and its the main reason I take it. The main reason I take it is that I tried it and amazing things began to happen. Also as I formerly stated that Brunswick doenst list its customers but have very recently been prodded to do so. I looked everywhere I could and researched every company I could find without Brunswick disclosing its customers. I was unable to find any acai that was certified, that didnt mean one didnt exist, it meant I searched and didnt find one. I still havent found one that can even compare with Euro Botanicals. This thread argues with me and every product mentioned doesnt make it. Bob, you just mentioned two and neither is even acai. The previous posters who mentioned products werent certified. Bob, please dont do anymore research, I dont want to talk about other companies and their products. MXI and Novelle have good products and I am convinced that they are what the bottle says it is, thats why Brunswick labs is important to the health comminity. I want acai and I want a high ORAC score. The regional hospital in my town and the oncologists I know want acai. No other product is being sold in any hospital that I know of like our acai. Now if you find some hospital somewhere that sells one of our competitors products, I will listen. That doesnt mean that if you find a hospital gift shop that sells snickers and since snickers is chocolate you win the argument.
I'm still here, find a certified acai that comes close to our product and I will acknowledge it. Please no chocolate.
As for 100 percent acai, I've covered that. Its really cheap to buy the worthless 100 percent acai seeds and sell it as 100 percent acai. It is what it is.
I have adamantly stated that there are other good products out there and if you are taking one with good results, continue to take it. DO NOT dis my product with a little knowlede and a little research. Some of your statements are right off the page of some of the non certified ineffective products out there that try to confuse you.
The SCIENTIFIC study done by the Univ of Fla is pretty clear, yes it was done in a lab, not the human body but I dont see anyone or any Univ studying the cancer fighting qualities of chocolate.
I am getting ready to leave on a softball weekend and I wont be checking this board for a few days.
Get healthy!

Actually, # 6, I WAS discussing acai with Jim until you threw your hat back into the ring on April 19. I sense that you're frustrated but you only have yourself to blame. Learn more about the product that you sell... or don't try to sell it over the internet.
Let ME try one more time to help YOU... if you don't like the heat, stay away from the kitchen. You continuously make comments that you seem to forget later. Unfortunately for you, they are still shown above.

Jim, I'm not dissing your product as much as I'm dissing the 'marketing smoke screen' that you keep throwing out there... high ORAC scores. It has nowhere near the importance that you have tried to imply.
But you have yet to answer any questions relating to your product's ingredients and I doubt that this will change... so I will not request this from you any more.
I will make you a deal, one that you can actually keep... I will do more research as long as you don't make misleading statements. Fair enough?

I am extremely offended by the statement that I have given misleading information on his board. I HAVE NOT. I am taking a product that works, a product that is the finest in the industry, a product that has the highest certified scores in its class. ORAC value is VERY important in rating these products. ORAC stands for oxygen Radical Absorption capacity. This is a measure of how well the body can use the anti aging anti oxidents. There is only one way to verify our ability to obtain the anti aging qualities and that is through Brunswick labs. To say that is unimportant or to say I've made misleading statements offends me. This product has worked for me and it has done extremely positive things for me and I've hesitated to list what its done for me because it may not do that for someone else. I have had a number of incredible things happen and if anyone wants to hear first hand what its done for ME they can call. I make no medical promises to anyone.
# 6 has posted regularly on here because he has had some positive results too. I know him and I vouch for his credibility. There are others who read this board regularly who also have had positive reults and are hesitant to post because they fear they too will be attacked by a member who for one reason or another believe we are selling "snake oil". So be it, bottom line is that there are a number of good products out there and some that are not so good. Our bodies need anti oxidents, that is absolutely scientificly sound. Its how our bodies fight aging and very few of us get enough antioxidents in our system. I am getting enough and its made a difference. I am extremely happy with the product and I reccomend it to others.
If anyone wants to hear how its helped me, call me. No sales hype just testimony. Jim 903 236 3459

Mad Dog:
I am not selling a product... there are over 1,000 acai products on the market. It matters not to me which one you buy. I do not have a financial ax to grind.

Jim:
You can be as 'extremely offended' as you choose. I have not expressed any doubt for the miraculous results that you and your friends have experienced.
Since you have failed to answer any questions about the content of your product while claiming to know that of others, I feel that you are not telling the whole story. Nonetheless, your product may well be a good one. But it isn't the only good one out there or the only 'real acai'.
You have thrown the ORAC score and Brunswick Labs out there as if you're on a first name basis. If science knowledge were karate you'd only know enough to take a first grade beating. Yet you continue to 'speak before thinking' in your efforts to market your product.
You stated that there was only one product certified by Brunswick. Untrue.
You have dissed other products in saying that they weren't really acai. I presume that you feel this way because they contain other fruit mixes. Still, all the while, you continue to ignore the fact that your product has a lot of non-acai fruit juices in its formula but somehow this is ok.
You continue to ignore the fact that ORAC testing is not at all comprehensive because of the testing environment and because of the fact that not all free radicals ( a total of 6) are represented. This is a little like comparing pitching ERAs of guys that have each only pitched 1 2/3 innings.
These are a few of the reasons that I used the term 'misleading statements'. Get over it.
Stick with the testimonials because you do not seem to grasp the big picture when it comes to the ORAC scores and their place in the science of acai. Or, worse, you do understand them and you opt to ignore them. Either way, you have misled the readers here and it's wrong to do so.
You have also ignored the disclaimer letter that Brunswick has on its own web site. In it, they clearly state that 'ORAC testing is not comprehensive and comparative results should not be used in marketing efforts... doing so is not in the best interest of good science'.
Jim, you continue to make nebulous comments, one after the other, but you have yet to offer ANY FACTUAL DATA as to the content of your product. To tell you the truth, this offends me but I will get over it.
As I stated, had you been content with just providing testimonials in your effort to 'educate us', I might have been tempted to buy your product. As you will recall, I did phone you several weeks ago asking about how I might obtain it. Once you threw in the ORAC card (on this thread) it caused me to pause and reflect.
You are correct about our bodies needing antioxidants. This could come in the form of synthetic vitamins (as an example, vitamin e) or it could come
from fruit extracts, such as acai. It doesn't HAVE TO come from the very product that you offer. To suggest otherwise is to GROSSLY misrepresent.
Give it a rest on the ORAC stuff, Jim.
