Maqui berries (pronounced “MAH-key”) are small, dark purple to black berries found on trees growing in the Patagonia region of Chile and Argentina. It is also known as the Chilean wineberry. Consumed by the Mapuche Indians for centuries to improve stamina and strength in their warriors, as well as overall health for their people, maqui berries are only now becoming better known in the West as an excellent antioxidant source, beneficial in the detoxification process and weight support when combined with a sensible eating and exercise program.
Maqui berries have astonishing levels of antioxidants, including anthocyanins, delphinidin, malvidin, petunidin, cumarins, triterpenes, flavonoids, and cyanidin. They are also a good source of vitamin C and potassium. The antioxidants in maqui berries provide protection for the body's cells, and may help maintain healthy levels of cholesterol and triglycerides. Maqui berries support the cardiovascular system by encouraging blood flow, and may provide valuable benefits for the immune system, as well as supporting bone and joint health (and joint inflammation).
Our 100% Maqui Berry Powder is made from the whole berry, dried at low temperatures and finely ground.
