Maqui Berry Research

Maqui berry supplements, juices, and other products have become quite popular and are claimed to be useful as a "superfood" for treating or preventing a variety of medical conditions and for enhancing general health. However, does maqui berry actually work?
"Test tube" studies have suggested that maqui berries have potent antioxidant activity. Although many people and companies use this research as evidence of the health benefits of these products, test tube studies do not always reflect what happens in humans. Very little research has been done on using maqui berries in humans.
In general, there is little evidence to show that maqui berries really work for many claimed uses. As is often the case with dietary supplements or "functional foods," some of the more outlandish claims about the health benefits should be viewed with caution until more research is available.
