Maqui Berry Powder and Its Rich Benefits

When you hear the phrase “most powerful antioxidant fruits,” what comes to mind? If maqui berries don’t pop into your head, we need to remedy that. These extremely nutritious berries provide more antioxidants than any other fruit out there (or, at least that we know of so far)! Native to the rainforests of Chile and nearby regions of Argentina, these berries are also known as “Chilean wineberries.” These berries are collected and sold by the Mapuche people of the area. Much of what is sold comes directly from the wild because this fruit is not grown on a large scale.

Maqui berries register high on the ORAC scale because of the anthocyanins, polyphenols, and other antioxidants present in it. This makes the maqui berry a great fruit to add to your diet to reduce visible signs of aging (sagging skin, wrinkles, etc.) and improve your body’s daily functioning, whether it comes to the heart, liver, brain, or otherwise. On top of the fruit’s antioxidant properties, it also contains sufficient amounts of vitamin C, potassium, iron, and calcium. This fruit has even been used as a natural anti-inflammatory and mixed in with drinks when someone is sick and experiencing diarrhea.

It can be hard to find maqui berries since they aren’t mass produced, but that’s where Navitas Naturals Maqui Powder comes in. This powder has all the benefits of the fruit but in a form that can be more easily added to any food preparation. People have traditionally enjoyed the maqui berry taste when added to jams and juices. As with most fruits and dried fruit powders, this maqui berry powder can be added to health/protein smoothies and shakes to boost the benefits. With fruit coming in such a convenient form, it’s kind of hard not to become healthier!
