Maqui berry is the new superfood berry in town. From Patagonia in Chile, South America the maqui berry is considered to be the highest food sources of antioxidants (the acai berry coming a close second), which targets and neutralises free radicals. When cells are protected from free radicals, skin looks firm, glowing and younger.
According to the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry and the Journal of Pharmacy and Pharmacology, raw maqui berries have a score of 27,600 units per 100 grams on the Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) test, which is a scale that measures the effectiveness of antioxidants in foods. This makes maqui berries the most antioxidant-dense fruit in the world.
One of the antioxidants found in maqui berries is vitamin C, which is essential for collagen production. Numerous studies - including one published in the October 2007 edition of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, show that regular Vitamin C intake results in fewer fine lines and healthier skin.
