Acai berry and breastfeeding?

Patient: I would really like to try this but im really scared it could harm my baby i have done research and some websites say its ok and others say dont. so i dont know

 

 

Doctor: If you are eating Acai berry as part of a balanced diet that includes a variety of fruits and vegetables it is perfectly safe.  Daily supplementation through capsules, pills or drinks will result in it entering the breast milk and effects are unknown from daily acai berry exposure..  Again, it is safe as part of a balanced diet with a variety of fruits and vegetables.
