Last Monday, we featured the Maqui berry because Navitas Naturals sent us a 3oz. bag of Maqui powder for review. I wanted to learn more about this Patagoantioxidant-fruits.coman superfruit from the Chilean evergreen shrub (Aristotelia chilensis) before featuring Navitas Naturals Maqui Powder.
Maqui berries are edible purple berries that pack a powerful punch – these berries are eaten regularly by one of the longest-living cultures in the world – the Mapuche Indians.
You’ll love the maqui berry powder benefits, which include:
- Natural antio-inflammatory compounds
- Vitamin C
- Dietary Fiber
- TRACE MINERALS
Talk about an anti-aging super fruit – they are particularly high in anti-aging flavonoids like anthocyanins and polyphenols.
Navitas Naturals Maqui Powder is:
- USDA Organic
Maqui is considered a sacred plant, symbolizing “good will” in the culture of Mapuche (Chile’s native inhabitants). I mixed some Maqui powder into a glass of water and can’t say that the organic freeze dried Maqui powder from Navitas Naturals had a much of a taste -which can be a good thing because you can mix it into things without compromising the overall taste of your smoothie, yogurt, dessert, etc. You can check out what I did in the video below:
I love Navitas Naturals – haven’t found a product that they make that I dislike yet. If you are looking for something different to add to your diet – try the Maqui berry out. You can buy maqui berry powder (3 oz) for $17.55.
Hang out with the good people over at Navitas Naturals through Facebook and Twitter.
