Plants which grow in harsh environments must have special “skills” to survive.
Over time these plants have become “enhanced” with special chemicals – called phytochemicals – in an effort to protect them from environmental factors like intense sunlight, predatory insects etc.
This is good news for us, as the fruit (a deeply purple berry) of such plants contain high levels of antioxidant rich phytochemicals. We can harvest the fruit and gain valuable nutrients from these Natural Superfoods.
The fruit I’m referring to is called the Chilean Maqui Berry (Aristotelia Chilensis), which is considered a sacred plant by the native Mapuche Indians. The Mapuche are a strong people who sustained their freedom under attack from the Incas, Spainards and probably more. They have never been conquered. Historically they credit their legendary strength to the Maqui Berry.
Even better, the Mapuche Indians are directly involved in the sustainable, organic farming of the Maqui Berry in locations far from pollution.
Maqui Berry is available as a Maqui Liquid Supplement which contains Organic Maqui berry, Organic Wild Blackberry, Organic Elderberry, Organic Raspberry, Organic Chilean Guava, Organic low glycemic agave nectar.
