MAQUI (pronounced mock-ee) studies have found them to be the best berry in the world.

Yields Higher ORAC value than any other berry discovered in the world - contains an extra molecule of oxygen.

High in both anthocyanins and polyphenols

Antioxidant levels 4 times higher than Acai Berry (reported by BRUNSWICK Labs): twice the strength while using half the product.

More about Antioxidants

MAQUI and Total ORAC - How does Maqui Berry stack up?

  • MAQUI powder delivers a Total ORAC value of over 6,100 per gram - but what does this really tell us about its antioxidant credentials? More than you think... EXTROADINARILY POWERFUL.
  • MAQUI demonstrates exceptional broad-spectrum antioxidant performance using Total ORAC: the next-generation antioxidant testing method from Brunswick Labs.

Total ORAC is an important advancement in antioxidant analysis:

  • The most comprehensive, broad-spectrum antioxidant method available
  • Brings a whole new level of understanding to the radical protective properties of products

Total ORAC does not just measure against Peroxyl, it measures broad-spectrum performance against the known top 5 radicals:

  • ORAC - Peroxyl
  • HORAC - Hydroxyl
  • NORAC - Peroxynitrite
  • SOAC - Singlet oxygen
  • SORAC - Superoxide anion

Understanding Antioxidant performance against individual radicals is important:

  • These radicals are formed, behave, and are defended against differently
  • They all contribute to ´oxidative stress´ or cellular damage and broad human health concerns caused by inflammation, DNA and protein damage.
  • They are each implicated in serious health problems like cardiovascular disease

Total ORAC provides valuable measurement of a product´s broad-spectrum antioxidant capacity:

  • No one radical is ´more important´ than another
  • Every product has a unique ´fingerprint´ against each radical
  • Each product´s fingerprints compare to other product´s results for the same radicals

Health Benefits:

  • Combats free radicals and before harming human health
  • Helps control inflammation and overall joint pain
  • Reduces LDL levels (bad cholesterol)
  • Supports low blood pressure
  • Aids in cancer prevention
  • Aids in maintaining eye health
  • Reduces allergic reactions
  • Helps prevent micro vascular damage caused by diabetes and high blood sugar
  • Prevents diabetes induced retinopathy (blindness)
  • Reduces micro vascular problems that lead to heart attack and strokes
  • Neutralises certain enzymes that cause inflammation and pain.
  • In one study, MAQUI reduced the expression of the COX-2 enzyme, which is one of the main enzymes that causes pain and connective tissue issues
  • Increases strength and stamina
  • Treats ailments such as sore throat, diarrhoea, ulcers and fever; also detoxifies the digestive system
