Purella Maqui Berries BIO (21g)
Maqui berries (Aristotelia chilensis) are dark purple and slightly tart fruit from Chile. Their properties were already appreciated by the Mapuche Indians who used them to prepare a special drink for their warriors. Powdered maqui berries are high in dietary fiber and contain no salt. Currently, maqui berries are superfoods, incl. due to the very high content of antioxidants. Blueberries can reduce inflammation, regulate blood sugar, and improve heart health. Country of origin: Chile.
Maqui berries are a source of calcium that contributes to proper blood clotting and is needed to maintain healthy bones and teeth. Moreover, both magnesium and calcium contained in these berries help in the proper functioning of muscles. These berries are also a source of vitamin C that helps protect cells from oxidative stress.
- Maqui berries are packed with antioxidants, compounds capable of fighting free radicals that cause cell damage and lead to disease. Maqui berries contain more antioxidants than, for example, blueberries or strawberries. They contain the greatest amounts of anthocyanins (which give the fruit its characteristic colour), which constitute over 80% of antioxidant substances. Anthocyanins are among the antioxidants responsible for a healthy heart. They reduce the risk of heart attacks and ensure proper blood pressure. They can also lower the level of the so-called bad cholesterol. These compounds slow down the ageing process of the skin, protect against UV radiation and accelerate hair growth.
- Chilian fruit naturally regulates blood sugar. The substances in berries affect how the body breaks down and uses carbohydrates. Powdered blueberries prevent type II diabetes.
- The powdered maqui fruit can also help keep your eyes healthy and prevent light damage to your eye. Thanks to the antioxidant content, powdered blueberries improve visual acuity, soothe conjunctivitis and reduce eye dryness.
- Maqui berries provide vitamin C (1 teaspoon covers 8% of the daily requirement), calcium (2%) and iron (2%).
