Polyphenols are chemicals that give fruits and vegetables their color. We now know they do far more than that. They are powerful anti-oxidants, anti-inflammatory, and anti-aging chemicals that are essential to human health. Although there are more than 4,000 known polyphenols, the "best of the best" may be a class of polyphenols known as delphinidins. These unique polyphenols are found in blueberries and red wine, but the highest concentration is found in the maqui berry grown only in the Patagonia region of Chile. MaquiRx has the highest concentrations of delphinidins of any product available because it consists of the highly purified extract of the maqui berry. What this means to you is increased energy today and a slowing of the aging process.
Delphinidins activate a key enzyme know as AMP kinase. This enzyme can be considered the enzyme of life as it increases the production of the chemical (ATP) necessary for life as well as being the master regulator of your metabolism. The high concentration of delphinidins in MaquiRx enhances the activity of this enzyme to provide additional energy without the need of greater calorie consumption. In addition, delphinidins are among the most powerful anti-oxidants known and have significant anti-inflammatory properties. Combine all of these unique characteristics of delphinidins, and you slow down the rate of aging as well as your appetite.
Delphinidins may be the "best of the best" when it comes to polyphenols, especially in regards to their benefits on decreasing fatigue and slowing down the aging process. However, because of their cost, they are tempting targets for product adulteration.
We quantify the levels of the maqui delphindins with sophisticated instrumentation known as high-pressure liquid chromatograpy (HPLC) that can separate out individual polyphenol components.

Each lot of maqui extract is confirmed by an outside laboratory to ensure the levels of delphindins stated on the label meets and exceeds Dr. Sears' standards. No other company goes to this extraordinary expense, other than ZoneHealth. Why? Because Dr. Sears demands it.
