BENEFITS AND RESEARCH

Maqui berry is an exotic deep purple berry found in Chile, known as Chilean wineberry. It is reported that Maqui berry has exceptionally high antioxidant capacity. The major antioxidants in Maqui berry are anthocyanins, the group of deep-purple phytonutrients found in blue and purple color fruits. Anthocyanins have antioxidative property which can fight against free radicals, thus delay the aging of cells due to exposure of free radicals. Research indicates that anthocyanins can reduce risks of aging diseases such as heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease and reduce diabetes complications. It also helps improve blood circulation in the eye peripheral capillary and slows down degeneration of eye and vision. Many in vitro & in vivo studies also showed that high anthocyanins content enables Maqui berry to promote insulin functions and regulate blood sugar levels.

Artichoke is widely cultivated in Mediterranean, Europe, Australia and North America. It is a medicinal plant with high antioxidants, minerals and fibers. The important antioxidant in Artichoke is Cynarin which has been proven beneficial for health, in particular, improving liver functions. It enhances antioxidant capacity of the liver, hence aiding in its detoxification functions.

Gojiberry is a small orange-red berry which is well known in traditional Chinese herbal medicine. It is rich in vitamins and antioxidants e.g. Betacarotene, Lycopene, L.barbarum Polysaccharides. Gojiberry is widely used as functional food with broad health benefits such as aiding detoxification process in the liver, promoting the liver regeneration, anti-tumor and inhibit cancer cell growth (e.g. colon cancer, prostate cancer and liver cancer).

A study in 20 adults who smoke or drink alcohol regularly showed that Maqui Plus+ supplementation significantly increased glutathione (GSH), the activities of glutathione peroxidase (GSH-Px), glutathione reductase (GSH-Rd), superoxide dismutase (SOD) and decreased thiobarbituric acid reactive substances (TBARS) compared with the placebo. Additionally, hepatic and renal functions were not adversely altered in Maqui Plus+ ingested subjects. It is suggested that Maqui Plus+ effectively promotes the endogenous antioxidant activity, and can be consumed as a functional supplement for people who are in danger of suffering oxidative-related chronic diseases.

USAGE

Take 1 shot (25 ml) twice daily, morning & evening. Consumption can be increased to 2 shots (50 ml) twice daily as required.

SAFETY AND WARNINGS

Allergies to fruits (e.g., berries) and other plant components of this product could occur, but would be rare. Ingestion of large amounts of concentrate could occur which may result in gastrointestinal distress such as vomiting, cramping and diarrhea. This could be a concern for an accidental ingestion of large amounts of concentrate, especially by a child.
