Abstract: The adiposity excess has as consequences metabolic complications which could predispose to the onset of chronic diseases concomitantly to induction of an inflammatory condition of low intensity by means of the secretion and expression of inflammatory cytokines in adipose tissue. These cytokines (IL-2, IL-4, IL-13, IL-15 e IFN-γ) may be involved in the regulation of energetic metabolism and food intake, contributing or minimizing the adipose tissue expansion. Some factors modulate the inflammation, such as body composition, biochemical, clinical and dietary parameters. The high intake of polyphenols, which is essential to preserve the metabolic homeostasis and control the subclinical inflammation, has been correlated to low incidence of chronical diseases. The açaí is a fruit rich in polyphenols which has been investigated due to its antioxidant and antiinflammatory effects. However, so far, its effects are not clear in humans. The perspective is that the açaí pulp intake could play beneficial effect on the inflammatory, anthropometric, metabolic and body composition states on the obesity process.
