    Why does acai berry sell so much shit. I mean seriously. It seems to be attched to every benefit you can think of, from getting ripped to losing weight to becoming immortal. I don't get it. People just see the word "acai" and pull out their credit card like its instinct. What's the mental trigger with this shit?

    When I told my wife I was going to try to sell Acai online she told me she had ordered it about 6 months ago. She said she tried to cancel, but they kept charging her card. All I could do is laugh. Hopefully she clicked through one of my affiliate links!:)

    I forgot about that. That's definitely a huge reason. Anyone here heard of Robert Kiyosaki? He appeared on Oprah with his book Rich Dad Poor Dad in 2000 or 2001 and his company, Rich Dad, hasn't looked back since. He's a multi, multimillionaire.

    I believe they call it The Oprah Effect.


    Any psychologists in the crowd here at BHW? I'm curious about the other root causes for Acai being such a hot commodity.

    Because America is full of fat bastards that need to lose a few extra pounds. And everyone is too lazy to actually go to the gym and work out, so the try the miracle cures thinking they can get there money back if it doesn't work. But then they are too lazy to send it back so the get stuck with the shit.

    Amazingly enough, I was seriously about to post something about mixing acai with adult shit. However, I felt it would have been inappropiate and unnecessary.

    However it is amusing to see that someone made the same connection I did.

    Well, because everyone loves Oprah and has her trust. If she recommends something, people refer it as something good.

    Agreed. Many American's are clinically obese, and have related health problems.
    There have been online Acai Berry scams in the past. But if there is a fast weight loss solution, people tend to go for it.

    Oprah endorsed it and that is why it rockets off dude.

    I was promoting Acai before Oprah endorsed it and the response back then wasn't this fantastic.

    It sells for the same reason all the get rich ebooks that sell. People want a simple and easy solution to a problem. They know it probably won't work but they are so desperate that they will believe anything.

    Robert Kiyosaki is a god. That is all.

    I give acai a year at most before it's old hat.
