Native to South America, Organic Maqui Berry Powder is considered the highest antioxidant fruit on the planet due to the harsh climate of the Patagonian region which increases the anthocyanin level of fruits grown in that part of the world.
The freeze-drying process retains maximum nutrients meaning that it is a true wholefood supplement.
The intense red/purple colour of the aqueous extract of its fruit is due to the presence of anthocyanin pigments causing it to be used as a natural dye. Anthocyanins are antioxidant flavonoids that plants produce to protect themselves from sun damage, diseases and biological enemies.
The leaves and fruits are astringent and have been used in Chilean folk medicine for centuries.
The Mapuche Indian tribe is the only tribe in the Americas (northern and southern continents) that were not conquered by any European Countries. According to the Conquistadors, the Mapuche warriors ate very little solid food and drank a fermented beverage made from Maqui Berries several times a day, which may have contributed to the extraordinary strength and stamina that the warriors exhibited.
Organic Maqui Berry is ideal to consume any time but pre and post workout would be perfect to help neutralise free radical activity.
Add Organic Maqui Berry to any protein shake, yoghurt or dessert.
