Has anyone tried Applied Nutrition 10-Day Acai Berry Easy-Cleanse Tablets? My neighbor brought it over for me today and said I should try it out and that it may help with my stomach issues. Just curious if anyone has tried it or what your thoughts are about it?

it is most likely a scam cos it has acai berry. it is the flavor of the month. most stuff with acai is junk cos it is not processed correctly so the ORAC score is a lot lower than it says. those with any kind of intestinal/digestive condition should not be doing cleanses. your system is already delicate and compromised - this will only compound things.

if you really want to do a cleanse, do it by beginning to eat correctly. ie no sugar, high glycemic foods, grains or starches for a month or more. just protein, berries in small amounts, and vegetables and water. that will make you healthy and clean your system out. take a lot of probiotics when doing this to reseed your intestinal flora.

if you really want something with a high ORAC score (ie a good antioxidant) get barleans olive leaf extract. go to amazon and order it.

Thanks for the info! She just brought it over today and said that she saw this and thought of me and thought it might help. I said thanks but wasn't really sure about it. I have seen the commercials and how people tried to say Oprah supported this type of stuff. So I guess I won't be taking it. I have no interest and don't feel that I need to clense my body of stuff. Glad I asked was really sure what to think of it.

I've always been warned against any type of cleanse, if that helps... my doc said risk of messing with already unhealthy flora would possibly cause more problems. I'm with Navy on the "yikes" and I'd be shying away from it too.

I agree about not messing with already delicate intestines and unhealthy intestinal flora. Doesn't sound like a good idea.

I guess your neighbour's intentions were decent though. ;-)

Did you nod your head enthusiastically, say thanks, and smile? lol

Roni - LOL. I was like thank you so much I'll give it a try. But really I was thinking is she trying to kill me off or something. I did see all the scams about how they tried to say Oprah used it or something. This bottle looked different then the stuff on TV. I threw it away already and I figured if she does ask me I'll tell her it was great and it really helped with my stomach. Don't want to hurt her feelings for trying. I'm sure the stuff isn't cheap either.

That would be wonderful if it were that easy FunGuy! Maybe soon they'll have a 10 day pill that will cure Crohn's..... I'll keep dreaming!
