The Amazing Health Benefits Of The Maqui Berry
Packed with more antioxidants than acai, mangosteen, goji, noni or even chocolate, Maqui (Aristotelia Chilensisa), is the ultimate super berry. In fact, according to independent studies (Brunswich labs), this tasty little berry boasts the highest Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) value of any botanical.
The Medicinal Properties of Maqui Berry Maqui berry seems to have various medicinal properties such as anti-aging, anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, and anti-cyclooxygenase-2 (anti-cox-2). The active principles of this berry are anthocyanins, which safeguards low density lipoproteins (also known as LDL) from oxidation, abridge inflammation, and keep our cells away from oxidative stress.
Basically, oxidative damage speeds up the aging process. Free radicals are highly reactive chemicals that attack molecules by capturing electrons and thus modifying chemical structures, such as in the case of cancer. Antioxidants can literally slow down the aging process.
You can consume maqui berry in form of juice, which is now utilized as an ingredient in various health drinks available in the market. These berries seem to have the highest level of antioxidant than fruits. The antioxidant level of this berry is more or less three times higher than the antioxidant level of acai berries. These berries are also used to make medicated wine.
