What is Maqui?
The maqui berry packs an antioxidant punch that far surpasses that of any other fruit, including the popular acai berry. In fact, Maqui has been recognized as one of the most potent sources of antioxidants in the world. Antioxidants have been proven to neutralize free radicals, which are the roots cause of illness and premature aging. While they are critical for good health at any age, antioxidants are especially important as we get older. Toxins in the environment, everyday stress and the aging process can drastically reduce our bodies’ ability to produce the antioxidants we need to stay healthy and energized.
Also known as the “Chilean wineberry,” the maqui berry was traditionally used by the Mapuche Indians in the Patagonia area of Chili, where it was heralded for its ability to provide strength, energy and endurance. It contains powerful antioxidants called anthocyanin and flavonoids that protect cells from free radicals, prevent oxidative stress, reduce inflammation and support the body’s overall function. Maqui is also an excellent source of Vitamin A, C, calcium, iron and potassium. It is considered to be very high in ORAC value. (ORAC stands for “oxygen radical absorbance capacity” which is the scientific community’s official measure of an antioxidant’s effectiveness.)
Because the berry itself can be difficult to find in this country, millions of people use maqui supplements in order to benefit from this amazing natural antioxidant source.
