Maqui Berry Benefits

How Does Maqui Work?

The maqui berry is a rich source of antioxidants due to its polyphenol content. Polyphenols are antioxidants that have a variety of beneficial effects in the body, such as slowing down the progression of atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries). Polyphenols may also decrease cholesterol production in the liver and might help lower blood sugar levels. Other components of the berries, such as fiber, may also be beneficial.
