Maqui Berry benefits

Maqui Berry benefits

Packed with antioxidants - Raw maqui berries have a score of 27,600 units per 100 grams on the Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) test, which is a scale that measures the effectiveness of antioxidants in foods. This makes maqui berries the most antioxidant-dense fruits in the world, and pushes acai berries (once considered the best with a score of 16,700 units per 100 grams) into second place.


The berries' impressive ORAC score is reinforced by studies published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry and the Journal of Pharmacy and Pharmacology, which prove that they contain unusually high amounts of cancer-fighting antioxidants.


What could be better than fruit and chocolate in a morning smoothie? A bit of bee pollen, of course, to give a mild flowery undertone. The rich purple color of this tasty smoothie comes from anthocyanins, the antioxidants abundantly found in maqui berry. Loaded with vitamins and minerals, this smoothie is nutritious and delicious!
