The benefits of the Maqui Berry are many and varied; read this report from Food Chemistry for the full details.
Our raw freeze-drying process retains maximum nutrients meaning that our Raw Organic Maqui Powder is a true wholefood supplement. With the highest antioxidant quantity of any fruit, Maqui is reported to stimulate weight loss, delays the ageing process and detoxifies and cleanses the body. Research is also showing that it's a powerful anti-inflammatory and contains high levels of polyphenols and anthocyanins.
Antioxidants are substances that delay the oxidation process, which is the natural deterioration of cells leading to ageing. A growing body of literature points to the importance of natural antioxidants from many plants, which may be used to reduce cellular oxidative damage, not only in foods, but also in the human body. This may provide protection against a wide range of chronic diseases. The ORAC test measures a food’s antioxidant ability to neutralise free radicals and potentially mitigate health imbalances. The USDA recommend up to 5,000 ORAC units per day and more if under any of the various stressors most of us face each day. Most individuals get only 1,200 ORAC units or less per day; using a wholefood supplement such as Maqui as part of a healthy balanced diet will ensure that you're getting enough antioxidants to reap the maximum benefit.
Anthocyanins are antioxidant flavonoids that protect many body systems and have some of the strongest physiological effects of any plant compounds. They're produced by plants for self-protection against sun, irradiation, diseases and biological enemies.
(Laboratory research shows that anthocyanins:)
Reduce the coagulation of blood platelets, inhibiting formation of blood clots involved in stroke, pulmonary embolism, peripheral vascular disease and heart attack. Promote higher levels of “good” cholesterol, HDL. Inhibit oxidation of “bad” cholesterol, LDL. Neutralize oxygen radicals. Down-regulate enzymes leading to inflammatory reactions that cause pain and stimulate other diseases.
Our Acai Powder is wildharvested from Acai palms growing in the coastal estuaries of the Tumaco region in Colombia, where they get mineralised by the Pacific Ocean. This along with the fact that the Acai pulp is NOT pasteurised before it is freeze dried results in an ORAC score of 182,146 uM trolox / 100g. This is nearly twice as much as Acai sourced from the Brazilian Amazon making it an extremely high source of antioxidants.
Traditionally, native medicine practioners and herbalists have recommended Camu Camu for:
Strengthening the immune system Improving symptoms of herpes infections, including mouth blisters, genital blisters, shingles blisters and other viral infections Promoting energy and vitality of people with chronic immune dysfunction Strengthening the nervous system Supporting healthy levels of white blood cell formation Detoxifying the body, especially the liver Promoting health of upper respiratory organs, including lungs, sinuses, nasal passages Promoting a healthy heart and circulatory system It has the additional benefit of being non-irritating to sensitive stomachs and bladders.
Although the number of milligrams of Vitamin C, which Camu-Camu contains, is low compared to the milligrams in synthetically derived Vitamin C tablets, the effects on the human body are incomparable. Because of its food form, with bioflavanoids and other phytochemicals, clinical evidence suggests that it is far more effective, milligram for milligram, than synthetic Vitamin C (ascorbic acid).
Gubinge is a bush plum; there's a lot of hype around stuff coming out of the Amazon, Acai and so on, but Gubinge is a really powerful indigenous Australian superfood. It's the highest natural source of Vitamin C on the planet, and that's been verified. The species is called Terminalia Ferdinandiana, more popularly known as the Kakadu plum, and it grows in the Kakadu and the Kimberleys. The Kimberley version however has tested higher than the Kakadu version for Vitamin C. In the Kimberleys, where it is known as Gubinge, they're not irrigating it or cultivating it using typical commercial horticultural techniques, which a number of operations up in the Northern Territory are doing. Essentially, those precious vital phytonutrients (the antioxidants within plants) are there to make the plant itself stronger. They do the same for the plant as they do for us, so if you pamper the plant too much, it doesn't need them anymore! If that plant is in its natural environment and there's a certain level of environmental stress present, that makes the plant stronger, so you get these higher levels of antioxidants.
The Gubinge Powder that we produce and market under the Nyul Nyul brand is a raw whole food and in terms of the nutritional aspects, it's one of the only high Vitamin C products on the market that literally is a whole food. A whole food that just happens to have 13% Vitamin C. To make it we simply take the whole frozen fruit, dehydrate it at 40ºC for 16 hours and then mill it into a powder, so in essence all we have done is take away the water: everything else is there in the powder. The thing about it being a whole food is that nature packages these things in such a manner that they can easily be absorbed; Vitamin C is one important phytonutrient, but like most things, for that to be absorbed into the system, there are a couple of other things that the body really needs to be able to properly utilise it. Those other things are also important and carry out functions, but in our Western approach we tend to reduce things; there is in fact a whole, so in terms of a supplement it's amazing. It's packaged with everything; not only is it the highest natural source of Vitamin C, but it also includes everything else your body needs to assimilate the Vitamin C. All the synthetic Vitamin C supplements and extracts, they're going to be a lot cheaper in terms of milligram for milligram of Vitamin C. In terms of overall effectiveness however...they're incomparable. Two different worlds.
Spirulina contains a wide variety of minerals and vitamins. The iron content for a recommended daily serve of spirulina will provide over one third of the recommended daily intake.
Composed of 60% protein, it also boasts a complete protein profile which includes all 9 essential amino acids as well as non-essential amino acids.
It is rich in phytonutrients and plant pigments such as chlorophyll that may produce an alkalising affect in the body to aid the removal of toxins from the blood.
Wheatgrass is highly regarded for its alkalising and antioxidant benefits and contains a range of minerals, enzymes as well as vitamin A, B1, B6.
In addition, the wheatgrass we have sourced is made up of 70% chlorophyll, and provides a complete protein profile of all the essential amino acids with the exception of Tryptophan.
