Delphinol maqui berry as Powerful source for potent polyphenols

A study carried at a university in Chile compared the polyphenol content in different berries, by just preparing the juice of berries. They compared the amounts of flavonoids present in berries and also established the “total radical absorbance potency”, the latter being a similar antioxidant potency test like “ORAC”. They found that brighter coloured berries typically bear lower flavonoid quantities than darker berries, such as the blackberry.

Researchers discovered that the maqui berry bears approximately three-times as many polyphenols than the blackberry and correspondingly has about three-fold antioxidant potency as the blackberry. Investigations such as these generated a first interest in maqui berries with regard to their health contributions.

Delphinol superior full-spectrum antioxidant ORAC potency

Delphinol has been analysed at the Brunswick Laboratories for estimation of the total ORAC value.

The most recent ORAC testing protocol was employed, which investigates the efficacy of an antioxidant for extinguishing five different oxygen radicals.

Delphinol was shown to extinguish all five radical species and yields a total ORAC potency of 30,852 micro-mol Trolox equivalents per gram of the extract.
