Maqui berry is the newest and hottest addition to the Dr. Tim’s Juices family of products. The new Dr. Tim’s Chilean Maqui juice drink will be available on line April 2010. Maqui berry juice is new to the cadre of Super-Fruit juices and offers its own unique advantages.
Maqui berries grow in the Patagonia region of the most famous region of Chile, Chilean Patagonia. The Chilean Patagonia offers all the dramatic landscape one would expect from the world's ultimate land's end. Here the South American continent falls away in a dazzling explosion of islands, glaciers, icebergs and mountains. It is truly one of Mother Nature’s grand finales.
The Mapuches Indians, native to this rugged landscape are champions of survival. They are one of the few tribes who have survived almost totally unchanged in their traditions. One of their traditions is the Maqui berry. Maqui is a small black to purple berry growing the mountains of the Patagonian region.
Maqui berry has nearly twice the antioxidant value as that of Acai. However Maqui lacks the omega oils that are so rich in the Acai. Maqui is being compared to Brazilian Acai juice because of its antioxidant capacity and even though they both are rich in anthocyanins neither one is better than the other. The savvy consumer will see the benefits of both and look to take advantage of both.
Dr. Tim’s Chilean Maqui and Dr. Tim’s Brazilian Acai are available online at http://www.brazilbotanicals.com. Dr. Tim’s Juices is located in Saint George, Utah and led by physician and surgeon Dr. Tim Hollingshead.
