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.
