(NaturalHealth365) Can we really prevent disease with the Maqui berry? Actually, some would say that maqui berry is a real lifesaver. Better known as the wineberry (or super fruit), this magical fruit is one of the world’s riches sources of anthocyanins – the purple pigment credited with miraculous healing abilities.
Discover one of nature’s best antioxidants on the planet
Maqui berries contain super high levels of anthocyanins called delphinidins, which are known for their potent anti-inflammatory activity. Naturally, if you want to eliminate the threat of degenerative disease – you must minimize the risk of inflammation. In fact, every major disease including cardiovascular, diabetes, arthritis and cancer have their origins from inflammation.
Cancer cells hate nutrient dense foods
Anthocyanins have proven to be able to interrupt the cancer cells cycle and inhibit cellular proliferation. When this happens – it can induce cancer cell suicide (apoptosis). In tests conducted by labs on colorectal cancer cell lines it found that it destroys both primary and metastatic cells. According to many studies, delphinidin (a primary plant pigment) has the strongest effect on cancer cell growth and is better than any other anthocyanidin. This nutrient exerted the greatest anti-proliferation effects on cancers within the stomach, colon, lung, breast and central nervous system.
Can this “super fruit” prevent cardiovascular disease?
The antioxidant compounds in maqui berries help prevent the oxidation of cholesterol, which is the main cause of heart attacks, strokes and hardening of the arteries. By doing this it helps prevent the plaque buildup which occurs when cholesterol is oxidated.
Regulate your blood sugar with the proper nutrients
Consuming maqui berry has been shown to greatly increase insulin production levels and suppress blood glucose levels, as well as prevent the development of new fat cells. At the same time, this berry will help regulate cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Maqui berries serve a duel function for diabetics by eliminating weight gain and preventing circulatory problems. As an added bonus, eating maqui berries will help you lose weight by discouraging the formation of fat layers within the body.
When you reduce inflammation – you eliminate physical pain
Since arthritis is an inflammatory condition – maqui berries help prevent this condition from manifesting itself. In addition, as a useful weight management tool, the reduced pressure on joints will reduce the risk of inflammation and pain. Best of all, eating maqui berries offer the benefits of prescribed pain medication without the negative (toxic) side effects.
Where do Maqui berries come from?
Maqui berries grow wild throughout parts of southern Chile and, at this point, is not a well cultivated fruit – since so much is available in the wild. Fortunately, the Mapuche Indians harvest extremely large quantities of this special fruit for commercial purposes – as the demand has grown over the years.
In fact, tons of maqui berry make it to market, and this very sweet and delicious fruit will soon be a much more popular commodity. By the way, this berry can be found in jam and juices which get absorbed much faster within the body.
Currently, maqui berry can be purchased online in powder or capsule form – but be sure to purchase from a reliable distributor. Like anything else, do your own research and discover the power of nature for disease prevention.
