Its Maqui Superberry Liquid supplement delivers a full month’s supply in a 16 ounce bottle! One ounce has over a 4000 ORAC value as certified by Brunswick Laboratories. So one tablespoon per day provides 2000 in ORAC value. “Many people are diluting these products causing people to consume more supplement than recommended and a variety of side effects. Your average diet provides about 1500 in ORAC, so with one tablespoon of Maqui you enjoy 3500 slightly over the recommended daily allowance of 3000 in ORAC,” explained Eng.”
