Anti-Aging Blackberry and Maqui Super Smoothie

Enjoy a beautiful start to your day with this vibrant, nourishing super food smoothie made with maqui powder. The maqui berry originates from the nutrient rich region of Patagonia, Chile. This incredible berry has the highest antioxidant content of any discovered food on earth. Higher than blueberries and twice as much as acai berries.

Maqui is said to help slow the aging process because of it's high levels of antioxidants. Antioxidants protect cells from oxidative stress, and helps support healthy aging and immune functions.

These dynamo berries are also high in vitamins A, C and E, along with several important minerals such as calcium, iron and potassium. Plant based iron is more easily absorbed if it's accompanied by vitamin C, which is why I added the juice of one lemon. Use any citrus or vitamin C source you prefer.

Here is a link to my favorite Nativas Natural Maqui Powder. Using a superfood powder is such a creative way to get more health into your life. I hope this product inspires you to create your own super food recipes. If so please share!
