Maqui berries are small, dark purple fruit found on trees growing in the Patagonia region of Chile and Argentina. Also known as the ‘Chilean Wineberry’, Sevenhills Wholefoods’ Maqui Berries have a similar taste to blackberries, and are extracted from an exclusive annual yield of only 90 tons, due to the area’s remote access and difficulty for transportation. While it has been a part of local diets for many years, the berry has recently gained a world-wide reputation as an excellent source of antioxidants – even rivalling Acai berry. Maqui is a great source of Calcium, Copper, Iron, Magnesium and Potassium, yet also contains an astonishing amount of vitamin antioxidants. In addition to helping the maintenance of an effective, healthy immune system, Maqui’s antioxidants help neutralise free-radicals in the body and prevent further oxidative stress damage, leading to healthier, and more prolonged cell life. We recommend adding 1-2 teaspoons of the powder to milk, juice or a smoothie, or alternatively add to your diet by sprinkling onto food.
