Benefits for health

A few of the health benefits of consuming maqui are listed below:

  • Maqui is one of the richest sources of antioxidants available. It contains anthocyanin, which is the pigment that gives maqui its purple color, and is also responsible for much of the antioxidant power in maqui.
  • The antioxidants contained in maqui are very effective in reinforcing your immune system and are good to protect you from becoming sick often. They are notably useful to prevent flu and common cold.
  • Consuming the berries also appears to enhance the production of insulin in the body. Therefore, the berries are beneficial for people with diabetes, as they will aid in maintaining a healthy balance of blood sugar levels after each meal. This property also makes maqui useful for overweight/obese people looking to lose some weight.
  • Maqui berries are also beneficial for cardiovascular heath. They can especially help people who are likely to developing heart conditions such as coronary disease. Maqui berries contain very potent antioxidants, which help to maintain healthy arteries. Furthermore, they seem to prevent the oxidation of cholesterol process, which leads to fat deposits inside the arteries, a contributing factor of heart conditions.
  • Finally, if you want to get a better looking skin, maqui can be useful too. Skin ageing is indeed often related to free radicals, these harmful substances that attack your body and skin and make them age faster. Free radicals are harmful for your skin, but also for your circulatory system. They cause the skin tissues to age and the skin becomes wrinkled. Maqui helps to reduce or neutralize the free radicals and prevent them from attacking the healthy cells in our body. It also ensures proper blood circulation from the skin tissues. Both these effects help to reduce speed of skin ageing.
