A cherished staple of the Mapuche Indigenous Peoples of South America, maqui berry is one of the most antioxidant-rich foods in the world. As far back as 600 B.C, the Mapuche have utilized maqui berries as a strength and endurance tonic, as well as remedy for numerous ailments. Modern science has validated the vast diversity and efficacy of the antioxidant activity in organic maqui berries to combat oxidative stress and its potential impacts on the body.*
The Mapuche created a potent drink with maqui berries named "chicha" that was consumed before and after expeditions and battles for both increased performance and recovery.
