Chilean Wineberry, Aristotelia chilensis
What is Maqui Berry?
Macqui berry is an antioxidant-rich berry that draws many similarities to the well-known Acai berry. The antioxidants found in Macqui berry are said to have benefits with preventing cancer and getting rid of diabetes symptoms. These berries come out of Macqui shrubs, which is a plant that is found in certain areas of Chile and Argentina. The only permanently independent tribe of foreign aggressors, the Mapuche Indians, would use Macqui berry for medicinal and cultural purposes and used it for an improved overall well-being.
How does it work?
The Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) reports that 27,600 units of antioxidants are found within 100 grams of Macqui berry. These antioxidants work to flush free radicals out of the body. These free radicals work to prematurely age body cells and can cause many other issues, which may include overproduction of cells and that can lead to the development of cancer.
Anthocyanins are also found in Macqui berries and are known for being capable of eliminating free radicals in the human body. As they are rich in vitamin C, there are many of the antioxidant contents of vitamin C within them. This offers many other benefits, such as improved skin health due to vitamin C being in the skin’s structure, and replenishment of vitamin C that was lost by aging, sun light, and more.

Of all berries containing antioxidants, the Macqui berry is graded the highest by ORAC standards. Further, Macqui berry is known to be able to increase energy and metabolism levels. In combination with a proper detox plan, it can also work to assist the body in losing weight. As used by the native Indian tribe mentioned earlier, the Macqui berry may contribute towards physical strength gains and can work as a traditional remedy for many common illnesses.
Goes well with
When combined with a detox plan, Macqui berry capsules can be used in order to eliminate toxins from the human body along with the use of other healthy sources of antioxidants, such as various juices concocted with fruits and vegetables. Also, the Macqui berry may be incorporated into fruit smoothies whether it is taken from fruit or juice form. Power and fruit form of Macqui berry may also be added into fruit salads or on top of yogurt parfait. Further, it may also be used from power and juice form to flavor water.
How to take/dosage
You can find Macqui berry in capsules, powders, juices, and berries, and it is purchasable at various healthy grocery stores and online supplement shops. When purchased in capsules, you will want to use no more than 1,800mg per dosing and it can be taken three times a day with no specific requirement on what time of day it is used if for detox purposes. The actual amount of Macqui berry that is recommended in a single dose will vary as it has not been fully researched and thoroughly studied yet due to it being a relatively new discovery.
Possible side effects
Aside from the calories, the Macqui berry includes many similarities to various fruits and in moderate amounts is considered to be safe and to not have any real side effects. Although, as it is a relatively new discovery, it is potential that side effects will develop after long term use. As well, if used in a detox plan, it is possible that detox-related side effects may occur, such as:
- Becoming dehydrated
- Feeling fatigued
- Feeling irritable
- Experiencing pains and aches
To date, there have not been any negative interactions with other drugs that have been discovered for the Macqui berry.
The majority of cultures have not become in tune with the flavor of Macqui berry yet. As a result, it may seem like the Macqui berry taste takes over in recipes that use it. It may be necessary to first mix the Macqui berry juice or powder into the juice of another fruit to make the taste more subtle.
Nutritional details on the Macqui berry are still being researched and the breakdown of vitamin contents is not fully determined yet. As a result, many Macqui berry products will only speak of the amount of the berry that is in each dosage. Furthermore, there is very little conclusive research that has been done on the subject of long term use for the Macqui berry and a result it is best to be cautious with keeping it as a consistent component of your diet.
Things to note
There are many super-berries that originate from South America, with the Macqui berry happening to be one of the better ones. As it features dark purple pigmentations, it is classified as an anthocyanin and that means that it helps with the prevention of cancer as a result of it being so rich in antioxidants. When evaluated against other types of berries with ORAC grading as the main consideration, it becomes clear that the Macqui berry is the best of the bunch:
- Macqui berry – 820
- Acai berry – 160 to 300
- Blueberry – 61
- Raspberry – 21
- Grapes – 14
For anyone that suffers fruit allergies, it is best to speak with a medical practitioner prior to using any type of Macqui berry supplement.
Another item consumers should note is that people with allergies to fruits such as strawberries, blueberries, or other berries similar to the Macqui should consult with their physician before using this fruit.
