No more benefits than fresh berries, cherries, black grapes from your local store.
They have antioxidants, so do many fruits, vegetables and teas.
Antioxidants do not aid weight loss.
To read their ads thay will cure most things, how they can get away with saying a lot of the stuff I do not know.
From the lower link…
“Virtually every berry — blueberry, strawberry, goji, acai — are anti-inflammatory and high in antioxidants,” Bowden said. “This particular one is exotic. It’s found in Brazil. It’s been marketed to have more of a magic ingredient. It’s been over-hyped and marketed to death. There are claims to curing cancer, curing baldness that is all over the place.”
Like most berries, acai has good nutritional qualities, but “there is not a drop of research” that supports marketing claims that it prevents weight gain and facial wrinkles, Bowden said.
Acai juices sell for as much as $ 40 per bottle.

If you must try any of the products buy locally from health food shops or somewhere like walmart.
The free sample offered on line is not so free. type in acai and scam.
