Maqui, (pronounced ma-kee) are little purple berries of the native Chilean evergreen shrub. For centuries, the Chilean Mapuche Indians have consumed this powerful antioxidant packed berry. To this day, they are one of the longest-living cultures in the world. With an amazingly high ORAC value, maqui berries are considered a 'superfood' because they offer more antioxidants than any discovered fruit with a particularly high potency of anti-aging flavonoids like anthocyanins and polyphenols. Recent studies have demonstrated these antioxidants to support a wide variety of bodily functions, including improved brain performance, heart health, liver strength, anticancer activity and as the Machupe Indians have proven, overall longevity. This powerhouse berry also offers a premium source of vitamin C, calcium, iron, potassium, and is a natural anti-inflammatory food. Because of the rich concentration of phytochemicals, even using just small amounts of maqui powder will vastly enhance the nutritional benefits of other foods or recipes. We love blending this in with smoothies and desserts.
