This product did not work for me, and I had to discontinue use after only one week. Within a day of introducing this into my diet, I began experiencing severe abdominal pains, excess gas, and bloating. By abdomen was visibly distended by about four inches, and the pain was, at times, debilitating. Although I typically have regular bowel movements every morning, while I was using this product, my trips to the bathroom were varied and unpredictable. After 5 days, I lowered the dosage as recommended, but the abdominal pain did not subside. After a week, my weight had increased by 6 pounds! Now, having not taken the product for a full day, my abdominal pain has subsided and I do not have as much gas. This suggests that these symptoms were in fact caused by the Acai Berry Cleanse. Still, I am not sure if my specific high fiber diet was what caused the increase in gas and pain. The included instructions warned against using products that have a laxative effect simultaneously, but the instructions did not indicate if I should alter my diet otherwise. I did give this product a "good" rating for value - it is very inexpensive compared to other similar products, and just because it did not work for me does not mean others will not have successful results. I would recommend that if you intend to use this product you schedule its use for when you are able to stay home for two weeks!
