Maqui Berry (Aristotelia chilensis) is an intensely purple berry that grows wild throughout parts of southern Chile. The people who harvest most of the maqui berry sold commercially are the Mapuche indians, who are indigenous to Chile and known as fierce warriors. Maqui berries are very rich in anthocyanins, which are purple pigments with very high antioxidant activity. Specifically, maqui berries contain extremely high levels of anthocyanins called delphinidins. The delphinidins demonstrate potent anti-inflammatory activity and protect skin from free radical damage caused by pollution and sun damage.
