History of Maqui Berry Powder
Maqui berries are an evergreen shrub hailing from Argentina and Chile. They were utilized by the Mapuche tribe for hundreds of years and were believed to be sacred.
Resilient to a fault, these berries became tough out of necessity since they were grown in some of the harshest climates in South America.
The plant’s anthocyanins are produced for self-protection against sun, diseases, and irradiation.
