The Maqui berry grows wild on small evergreen trees throughout the Patagonia region of southern Chile. It is purported to have a lot of amazing health and nutritional benefits.

Here are some of the reported benefits of the Maqui berry:

The Maqui berry contains high levels of polyphenols, anthocyanins, quercetin, flavonoids, along with omega fatty acids, iron, calcium, vitamin C and potassium making it a very highly nutritious, high antioxidant fruit that can help to improve the immune system. Antioxidants are substances that may protect your cells against the effects of free radicals. Free radicals are molecules that are formed when your body breaks down food and is responsible for aging and tissue damage. Thus by reducing the number of free radicals in the body, it is believed that this will lower the risk of cancer, heart disease, and memory loss. The high antioxidant activity of the Maqui berry may also help to prevent the oxidation of the bad LDL cholesterol in the blood, thus reducing the risk of cardiovascular diseases such as heart attacks, atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) and stroke.

The high levels of anthocyanins in the Maqui berry also exhibit powerful anti-inflammatory properties that may help to reduce the amount of inflammation in bones and joints and reduce the onset of degenerative inflammation diseases. The Maqui berry’s anthocyanins contain a very high amount of delphinidins. Delphinidins is what gives the Maqui berry it’s rich deep purple color.

Delphinidins acts as a potent anti-inflammatory and has antiangiogenic properties. Antiangiogenic properties is used to stop the growth of tumors and the progression of cancers by limiting the formation of new blood vessels. Studies are being conducted to see whether delphinidins may be effective in inhibiting the growth of prostate and colon cancer cells.

Consuming the Maqui berry may cause a significant increase in the release of insulin in the body, which in turn helps to lower the circulating amount of glucose in the bloodstream and prevent the formation of new fat cells.

To show that the Maqui berry may be the new superfood, ponder this fact: the Acai berries contain ten times more antioxidant vitamins than grapes and twice as many as blueberries. The Maqui berry is reported to have an antioxidant level 4 to 30 times higher than the average Acai berry.

The Maqui berries currently contain the highest antioxidant value of any known superfruit.

This is a major skin detox!

Matcha powder is loaded with antioxidants to nourish your skin and protect against sun damage and it is also gently cooling and anti-inflammatory.

All of those wonderful antioxidants work to fight the negative effects of free radicals and UV radiation and can help repair sun-damaged skin.

 

Matcha, in fact, has always been good for the skin and has been used that way for centuries. Today, thousands of people have rediscovered this knowledge and are now rejuvenating their face with a matcha mask. In an effort to explain why so many are now using matcha as a facial mask, here are the top five benefits of matcha for skin care:

Treats inflammation. Matcha powder has many anti-inflammatory properties, especially EGCG, that reduce the redness associated with chronic skin conditions such as rosacea and even acne. It is gentle enough for all skin types and brings soothing relief from these issues. Not only does the skin feel better, but matcha diminishes redness, which lessens any self-consciousness about having a chronic skin condition.

Improves your complexion. Matcha powder has remarkable properties to keep your complexion fresh and healthy. Not only does it reduce inflammation, it offers a one-two punch for the skin to exfoliate and eliminate dead skin cells, then rejuvenate the underlying skin to improve your complexion.

Diminishes the signs of aging. Let’s face it. This is one of the biggest reasons you take care of your skin. Matcha stimulates elastin production to add volume to the skin. It also protects the skin against free radicals that cause sun damage, age spots, dry skin, and yes, wrinkles.

As we age the natural cellular turnover of our cells slows dramatically down. Our complexion loses its dewy freshness. We look a bit dull and mottled.

I’m Fabulous Cosmetics Matcha Dream Mask is wildcrafted using Matcha powder and glacial marine clay can also help with clearing acne, removing dead skin cells, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, reducing the signs of eczema and rosacea (along with other common skin disorders), whitening the skin and improving circulation.
