Glow from within with Maqui
Including superfoods in your diet for radiant skin isn't much of a secret these days, just about every supermarket stocks Acai, Goji berries and Cacao. But our latest discovery is a nutritional powerhouse, sure to have you glowing from within in no time.
Maqui - our new favourite smoothie addition - is a deep purple berry that has a beautiful tart sweetness and hails from Patagonia in Chile. It has been researched to have one of the highest ORAC scores in a super fruit. That means it's antioxidant value, which mind you is between four and thirty times higher than your average Acai berry! The potent ingredients in Maqui assist in your body's detoxification process as well as containing powerful anti-microbial properties. It's also believed to help your body to produce insulin, so your energy levels will be stabilised throughout the day.
Maqui is the perfect ingredient to include in your morning smoothie or stirred into your yoghurt and muesli for vitality and radiance. One teaspoon and you will be on your way to protecting and nourishing your skin by neutralising free-radical damage, boosting your metabolism and your immunity.
