Bioavailability Study of Maqui Berry Extract
Several health-promoting effects have been reported for the Patagonian maqui berry, which is rich in anthocyanins. Within the course of a study, the bioavailability of a standardized maqui berry extract was investigated based on two selected anthocyanins and two breakdown products after a single-dose supplementation in humans. The results confirm a fast uptake and metabolism of the two selected key substances with significant increases in the plasma values of all 12 subjects.
The investigated extract is produced by Anklam Extrakt GmbH.
