Maqui

Of all the known fruits the maqui berry (Chilean wineberry), which originates from Patagonia, has the highest concentration of delphinidins.
 
Delphinidins are particularly effective antioxidants, therefore maqui berries have a greater antioxidant capacity than most other edible berries. Studies have shown that delphinidins offer effective protection from UV-induced oxidative stress (e.g. as a result of intensive sun exposure), and also have positive effects on our cardiovascular system.
 
Anti-diabetic effects of the maqui berry have also been demonstrated scientifically.
